Netflix shows may come and go, but there’s nothing quite like the drama on our desi television serials. If you’re someone who can’t help but tune into your fave show on TV every evening, we totally feel you. We’ve put together a list of some iconic beauty trends our favourite TV actresses and characters have given us. Read on for some mega hair and makeup inspiration, fresh from your television sets.
It’s been awhile since she was on the show, but I think most of the audience is still not over her attention-grabbing eye makeup. Am I right or am I right? Bronzed or golden lids paired with exaggerated eyeliner and extra long lashes are Mouni’s claim to fame as much as her role on the popular serial. We also love her smoked out eyeliner or kajal, which is pretty easy to achieve in daily life. All you need is a smudging brush with your pencil or gel liner to get the same effect. Don’t forget to finish off with a bright red or pink pout just like the TV diva.
She was crowned Asia’s second sexiest woman in 2017 and she just keeps getting even sexier! Nia Sharma always looks on point and her character in Ishq Mein Marjawan is no different. Loose waves and a pretty pink pout is her signature on-screen style and we love it!
The show may have sadly ended but Jennifer Winget’s cute makeup style as Zoya on the show has definitely made a lasting impression. Admit it, you started using your blush palette even more to mirror her pretty, flushed cheeks. With her soft, pink lipstick and those ringlets in her long hair, this avatar of Jennifer definitely made her even more popular than she already was.
Jennifer Winget received a lot of praise for her portrayal of the complex character of Maya. Just like Maya’s extreme emotions of love and hatred in the show, her beauty looks were as different. From sporting no-makeup, makeup looks to an unmissable bright lipstick, her looks were as unpredictable as the storyline of the series.
This hottie made waves in Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai back in 2011, not just because of her rumoured romance with on-screen husband, Karan Tacker but also thanks to her pretty Punjabi bahu avatar. Straight, shiny locks, a nude pink eyeshadow and nude lips was her signature style that is so wearable in daily life too.
In her latest show, Belan Wali Bahu, Krystle continues to give us some major beauty inspo. She’s switched up her loose, straight locks for pinned back hair with a voluminous pouf on the top. It’s a fuss-free hairstyle that looks chic for any occasion.
You know this list would be incomplete without Urvashi Dholakia aka Kamolika in Kasautii Zindagii Kay. The original vamp of television from one of the most iconic shows of Tele land, of course! Whether you hated her or loved her, her dramatic eyeshadow, exaggerated eyeliner and larger than life bindis are hard to forget till date. We’re sure every girl was inspired by Kamolika to pick up an eyeshadow palette and experiment with eye makeup like never before!
Speaking of the show, how happy were you when it returned to television last year? Hina Khan took on the role of the (in)famous Kamolika with complete ease. Of course, her look for the modern day portrayal of the character in the reboot is extremely noteworthy too. Kohl-rimmed eyes, smoked out eyeliner and dramatic lashes pay tribute to the character. We’re just glad the bindis have gotten smaller!
TV land’s darling, Divyanka Tripathi plays Isheeta in one of the most successful and popular shows in recent times. Her hair and makeup is kept classic in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein and is never OTT like most things on Indian television. One thing that does stand out though is Isheeta’s enviable lipstick collection, she’s almost always sporting a bright pout in a stunning shade. Raise your hand if you’ve definitely been inspired to buy a new lipstick shade thanks to Divyanka’s on-screen persona!
