My love for Indian films was pretty known throughout my household but what I usually look out for when watching a good romcom is the latest makeup trends and clothing worn by the stunning actresses. I've had the pleasure of sending over our lip shades to the amazing Namrata Soni for her Masterclass and I know she's worked on so many film sets and worked her magic as well by creating new makeup looks and experimenting with colours.
I'd be lying if I didn't try to recreate or have shades that I fell in love while watching Indian films. After speaking to many makeup artists and watching them in action like Namrata Soni - sometimes the perfect lip shade that an actress is wearing is actually a combination of 2 - 3 different shades so I always aspire to create it... because who really has the time to pick up a few different shades from different brands when one can do it for you. Right? (Plus it's better for your pocket).
I wanted to share some Lady Burgundy lip shades that came from my love of Bollywood - so let's get into it!
Here are 5 gorgeous Bollywood actresses and their go to lip shades. We'll take a look at their signature shades and which Lady Burgundy lip shade is the perfect match.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas
Priyanka's full lips make any lip shade look good but looking at her recent films and cover shoots of magazines, it's easy to say that she gravitates towards teddy bear browns and mauve, berry tones in her lip shades.
Our picks: Priya, Maha & Noor.
Alia is always full of energy and so vibrant on screen but one thing I always notice time and time again is that she really LOVES those nude lip shades! Opting for that perfect petal rose pink or slightly glossy pink lipstick is definitely her go to and I haven't seen her gravitate away from that.
Our picks: Madison, Osaka & Vienna
Another Bollywood beauty who loves nude shades is definitely Katrina! In most of her films you can see she opts for glossy pink shades and pink shades with hints of blue tones. In many films I've noticed that she loves to make her eye makeup pop and keep the lips neutral.
Our picks: Petra, Tahlia & Vienna.
Kareena Kapoor Khan
Kareena is known for minimalistic makeup and the "no makeup" makeup look is definitely all her! Beautiful skin and a very "your lips but better" is so Kareena. I think I've only seen her rock darker shades a handful of times, usually she loves to make her eyes the centre of attention and keep the lips looking natural with just a tint of colour.
Our picks: Ella, Vienna & Osaka.
Rekha's signature red lip is iconic and 99% of the time you can catch her wearing a deep red lip shade. She's one actress that doesn't shy away from deeper shades and we're here for it - so much so that we have a lip shade named after her!
Our picks: Rekha & Imaari.
