Madhuri Dixit Nene is the epitome of understated grace and elegance. Even today, every time she flashes that beautiful 1000-watt smile, we are automatically transported to her Dil Toh Pagal Hai days. But apart from her drop-dead gorgeous looks, we also remember being ardent fans of Madhuri’s simple yet trendy beauty choices. And today, 20 years later, it turns out that not much has changed.
As the Madhuri Dixit celebrates her 54th birthday today (she’s sure ageing like fine wine), here are five bold lipstick shades we’ve seen Madhuri rock from time and time. Whoever says mature women can’t wear bold lipsticks, here’s Madhuri proving them wrong and how!
01. Berry pink
If you find red lipsticks to be a bit too bold for your liking, then take cues from Madhuri and switch to a warm, berry pink shade instead. Not only will this shade brighten up your face but it also work well with both Indian and western outfits.
02. Chocolate brown
A dark brown lipstick shade is an absolute must-have in every woman’s wardrobe. Apart from being extremely versatile, this lip colour works really well with Indian skin tones and delivers an air of sophistication that we totally love!
03. Deep red
Irrespective of your age or skin tone, Madhuri proves right here that you cannot go wrong with a bold red lipstick. Don’t forget to exfoliate your lips and line them with a lip liner to make them appear fuller.
The perfect cross between brown and red, a rust lip colour is another must-have in every woman’s kitty. From lunch dates with your girls to an evening soiree with your family, a single swipe of this lip colour will make you look well-put together at all times.
05. Hot pink
If you love a hot pink lipstick as much as us, then take cues from Madhuri on how to rock it with complete elegance. Everything about this look, from the lovely pink lips, thin flick of eyeliner to the perfectly flushed cheeks looks screams understated glam and we are in love!
