Earth tones and warm metallic shades like copper and gold are excellent choices for South Asian complexions, so make sure to add these to your makeup bag. On the lips, Mindy has chosen a medium berry pink tone with a gloss finish-an excellent choice to add a pop of color to her face.

Mindy Kaling hairstylesFor a daytime look, mimic Mindy's soft makeup palette, as shown here. Start by using a shimmery mocha shade on the eyelids and layer darker brown on top of that in the crease. Use a deep brown mascara and eyeliner to pull it all together.

Choose a rosy blush and lipstick to complete this light and feminine look. Just make sure that you get a cream or glossy formula of lipstick so your lips don't end up looking too matte or chalky.
