Get the look: Kangana Ranaut’s showstopper look from LFW W/F ’18 decoded

Written by Harshitha PrabhakarAug 28, 2018
As we bid adieu to yet another edition of Lakmé Fashion Week, we are happily reminiscing about all the statement makeup and hair trends we saw during the five day extravaganza. The event was undoubtedly made even more memorable by all the celebs that walked the ramp in support of designers. We were left mesmerised by how stunningly they carried their makeup and hair.

When Kangana Ranaut walked the ramp as showstopper for Nokia presents Pankaj and Nidhi, we were left speechless. She sashayed down the ramp in an electric blue double mesh gown embellished with patent leather appliqué. It also featured blue crystals in a fleur-de-lis pattern.


Start with your usual C-T-M routine and make sure your skin is well moisturised. Use the face contour from the Kareena Kapoor Khan range by Lakmé Absolute in a shade that is closest to your skin tone. Apply this in a thin layer all over your face and blend well. Use a face contour in a shade that is two or three shades darker and dab it on the hollows of your cheeks. Blend well to contour your cheeks. Apply a hint of Kareena Kapoor Khan Range by Lakmé Absolute cheek contour in Rose Gold on the apple of your cheeks and blend upwards and outwards towards your hairline.


The most attractive feature of Kangana’s makeup is her eyes. The fierce and sharp winged liner matches the actor’s fierce attitude and the colour matches her outfit. Use the Kareena Kapoor Khan range by Lakmé absolute eye definer in Cobalt and line your entire upper lid with the pencil. Extend the eye pencil outwards to create a winged tip. Load your lashes with the mascara from the same range. Fill in your brows with the Kareena Kapoor Khan by Lakmé Absolute brow definer in Graphite to complete the eye makeup.


Since the eyes are dramatic and in a bold colour, the lips are kept soft and nude. Use the pout definer in Blushing Temptress on the lips for a similar hint of colour on your lips.


The emphasis is on the yes and the dress in this look. So the lips and nails have been kept neutral. Use a golden shade like Lakmé Absolute Gel Stylist (Illuminate) in Gold Glaze on your nails for a look similar to Kangana’s.


Part your hair at the side and spray some hair spray to tame the flyaways. Now gather your hair in a low ponytail and secure it with a hair tie.

There you have it! Showstopper Kangana Ranaut’s makeup and hair decoded!
