The birthday girl and new mom Anita Hassanandani is an absolute delight on screen and off! She was the first girl crush for many 90s kids (Kavyanjali fans, please stand up!) and is now melting hearts with her adorable baby posts on the ‘gram. The always bubbly actress manages to stay on top of her glam game as well.

Her ethnic glam looks are uber stylish, polished and incredibly wearable. This mean can easily recreate them without needing an army of stylists. We love a relatable glam queen, and so on Anita Hassanandani’s birthday, we rounded up our favourite ethnic makeup looks from her that’ll help you up your ethnic glam game as well…


01. Smokey details

Smokey details

If overdone, a smokey eye with a black saree can look too OTT. However, if done right, a smokey eye can totally elevate your ethic wear and take it several notches higher. Take inspo from Anita and smoke out only the outer corner of your eyes. Keep the rest of the base matte, and opt for a rosy pout and flushed cheeks to complete the look.


02. She’s electrifying!

She’s electrifying!

Wondering where to rock your electric blue and metallic teal eyeshadows? How about wearing them with your cocktail sequins sarees! We love the peachy lip and electric blue bindi detail in this look as well — it is so modern and fun!


03. Sapphire gold

Sapphire gold

When in doubt, go for gold! Gold and shimmery pigments are often used in ethnic makeup looks, and this look is proof of why it works so well. We love the soft brow fill and nude, glossy lips; it is such a nice way to do your makeup for ensembles featuring a rich colour.


04. Desi homegirl

Desi homegirl

Take a cue from Anita on how to do your hair and makeup when you have 10 minutes to get ready! Add some volume to your mane with twisties and let some wavy ones frame your face. A dainty winged liner with blushed cheeks is all you need to tie the look together; it is simple, effortless and fuss-free for busy girls on the go.


05. A vision in ivory

A vision in ivory

Ivory is a legitimate ethnic trend that shot to fame back in 2019 and has managed to stay on top even now. Anita’s silver lids with a touch of kohl is such a pretty way to do your makeup with off-white ethnic ensembles. We love the sheer, matte skin and curly bun on her. It is such a gorgeous daytime look.
