Parineeti Chopra is the quintessential girl-next-door, both on-screen and off. Apart from wowing us with her acting prowess, the actress is known to serve desi looks like no other. One scroll through her insta feed and you’ll find tons of makeup inspo to last you this festive season and beyond.

So, on her 32nd birthday, we want to pay homage to this desi version of her by rounding up the top five festive glam looks you should totally steal from this Bollywood beauty.

FYI, Parineeti is a self-professed jeans and tee kinda girl. So when she does decide to deck up in a saree, it is indeed rare. For this gorgeous sheer georgette saree, the actress went bold and played up her eyes with dark kohl and well-defined brows. She kept the rest of her makeup simple by opting for a mauve lipstick and blushed cheeks. We love how the actress opted for a textured bun to add more character to the look.

BB picks: Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color - Soft Mauve

If you’ve ever wondered how to get away with wearing an intense smokey eye with an off-white salwar-kameez? Take a cue from Parineeti and keep the rest of your face completely muted. The actress opted for falsies to add drama to the look and lined her upper lash line with silver eyeliner to complement the jewelry. Soft flipped out waves completes this pretty look.

BB picks: Lakme Absolute Shine Line Eye Liner - Steel Grey


3. Understated glam

If your festive ensembles are going to be sleek and smart, this is a good beauty look to pair them with. Pin-straight hair paired with kohled eyes and light pink lips completes the look. A touch of bronzer on the contours of her cheek and near the hairline adds a lovely depth to her complexion.

BB picks: Lakme Eyeconic Kajal


4. Dipped in gold

This is one of our favourite beauty looks from Parineeti. The all-over gold highlighter perfectly matches the bling in her ensemble. With eyes done up in deep, glittery copper tones and hair secured in a wavy low pony, this glam moment is the right kind of OTT for the festive season.

BB picks: Lakme 9 to 5 Eye Color Quartet Eye Shadow - Smokey Glam

According to Parineeti’s makeup artist Arti Nayar, this on-screen golden hour moment was achieved with, “Dark kohled eyes, perfectly contoured and highlighted skin, a natural pink lip and a turquoise bindi to complete the look!”.
