She has a distinctive voice, hazel eyes, a gorgeous smile, and happens to celebrate her 42nd birthday today. No points for guessing… it’s the Queen of Bollywood, Rani Mukerji. Apart from winning hearts for more than a decade, she was also quite the trendsetter during her times.
From her shimmery brown lipsticks and fluttery lashes to her poker-straight hair and smokey eye makeup, Rani’s beauty looks were coveted and how. If you’re a millennial, crushing over the 90s beauty trends, take notes from Rani.
In the late 90s, most of Rani’s onscreen looks included the sultry and smokey kohled eyes. She swapped her clean stroke of liner for a more smudgy and intense eye makeup which did justice to her gorgeous caramel eyes.
Before it regained popularity in 2019, the OG beauty gang aka the ‘90s B-town divas rocked quirky and cute hair accessories with aplomb! Rani too set the trend with her wide headbands, cutesy hair clips and blingy barrettes. I mean, that’s what inspired us to make our own little collection of hair accessories as kids, didn’t it?
The brown lip was Rani’s signature look. While other ‘90s Bollywood divas rocked reds and pinks, Rani’s was always spotted wearing a chocolate brown pout both, on and off-screen, in a matte, metallic or glossy finish.
Dewy skin wasn’t the most coveted look in the ‘90s. Back then, a flawless and natural matte base was THE go-to trend. Rani’s matte skin coupled with bronzer can give Kim-K’s contouring trend a run for its money.
Straight, centre-parted hair
We don’t remember seeing Rani in curls in any of her movies, but we do remember wishing for her glossy, poker-straight hair for sure. Especially after her iconic role as Tina in KKHH, every 90s girls wanted to be her. After all, those outfits and beauty looks were to die for.
