Fatima Sana Shaikh’s looks are just as versatile as her acting. From portraying Geeta Phogat in Dangal to playing Aarushi Mathur in Ludo, the Indian actress has displayed her acting prowess in the industry in sky-high updos, cat-eyed flicks, flower-laden buns, and statement-making lips. So, on Fatima Sana Shaikh’s 30th birthday, we round up some of her most iconic looks. Let’s take a look.


01. Sky-high updo

Sky-high updo

Even though Fatima almost always opts for a voluminous blowout when making public appearances or heading to photoshoots, she surprised us with a sky-high ponytail in this one. A statement-making hairdo, she complemented the look with a seamless base, natural-looking brows, and a shade of plum on the lips.


02. Dewy base

Dewy base

Accompanied by a flower-laden dupatta and a slicked-back, low ponytail, Fatima makes a case for pink with strokes of the colour on the eyelids, cheeks, and lips. Coupled with perfectly-arched brows, daubs of highlighter on the cheekbones, and thick cat-eye flicks on the eyes, this look is nothing short of stunning.


03. Flower-laden half-updo

Flower-laden half-updo

We won’t lie to you, we picked this look solely for the hair. Pulled back into a half-updo defined by a face-framing piece grazing the cheeks, this look is tied together with pretty roses spilling out of Fatima’s bun. It’s such a compliment to her traditional avatar, and you can bet we’re bookmarking this look to revisit again and again.


04. Statement-making lip

Statement-making lip

If you’re looking for ways to wear a statement lip, take notes from Fatima. A statement-making shade of red on the lips is best accompanied by a rounded eyebrow, and daubs of highlighter on the cheeks, temples, and on the bridge of the nose. As for your hair, style it in natural, flattering waves.


05. Liquid hair, FTW

Liquid hair, FTW

Popularised by the likes of Kim Kardashian and JLo, liquid hair is all the rage these days. And Fatima does absolute justice to the trend. Paired with her trademark wing and a pop of gloss on the lips, this sleek, glossy, centre-parted look is glamorous in the way it flatters her Indian ensemble.
