As far as the actress’ hair care routine is concerned, Mashal explains that she takes extra care of her hair. “I’m very particular about my hair and hence I only apply controlled heat to it. I’ve my own hair tools and I don’t let anyone use theirs on my hair.” She continues, “It is important to use a straightener with ceramic plates, because they don’t burn your hair. I only use Kerastase products and make sure to take Biotin 10,000 mcg – it has really helped my hair.”
According to Mashal, she almost never wears makeup when she is not on set or shooting. “I just like to be doused in moisturizer when I’m home. Apart from that, my go-to makeup products include TV paint stick for concealing under my eyes, a translucent face powder and rose tinted lip balm,” she shares, adding that her signature beauty look is straight hair and a no make-up look.

“My all-time favourite beauty trend has to be the no-makeup look. I am obsessed with it,” she informs, adding that a beauty trend that she will never go for is dark, overfilled eyebrows.
A makeup tip that Mashal has learnt over the years from makeup artists is to always contour to pull your cheeks upward and blend. “An advice that I would like to give my fans is to drop the meat, drop the dairy; take my word for it, your skin and hair will improve like mad,” she concluded.
