Be it her hair or make-up, Priyanka Chopra does not shy away from trying something new. Pee Cee is anything but conventional. From her life to her career to her love interest, she’s an ardent rule slayer and she looks like a bomb while she’s doing it. She’s always experimenting with new makeup styles and c’mon her MET Gala appearances speak volumes! She’s also a lip colour junkie, have you noticed? So on her birthday, here are our favourite iconic lipstick moments by the diva!
You should ideally wear mauve lip colour when you want to make your lips look plumper (look again!). The best part? This shade looks super on girls with dusky skin (Exhibit A)!
Get The Look: To make it an ideal contrast with blue (like PC did), overline your lips and then fill with colour to avoid bleeding. Seal it in with a dab of loose powder.

Kylie Jenner has been saying this for years—brown lipstick is a boon for darker skintones. So we weren’t surprised when Priyanka Chopra rocked this unconventional ash-brown lip colour with smokey eyes and a strong contour game.
Get The Look: If you’re just starting out, you can opt for a copper brown. Elevate your look with deeper browns.

Have you MET Pee Cee 2.0? Here’s how you can overdo burgundy and still leave everyone wanting more.
Get The Look: When wearing burgundy on your lips, make sure there’s no redness on your face. If you have dark eyes, a lipstick with brown undertones will suit you the most.
POPxo Recommends: Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick Cream Finish – Plum Scene (Rs 1,700)
Priyanka made a bold move of matching her lip colour with the outfit and man, it’s stunning!
Get The Look: When choosing to wear a lipstick in the same colour family as your dress, make sure you pick the right undertone. Accents of pink help add a bit of contrast whereas red just makes it a statement maker.
POPxo Recommends: Deborah Milano Red Lipstick No 12 Red Corset (Rs 556)
Chocolate tones look so amazing with Priyanka’s olive skin tone. This brick shade lippie should be a must have for any skin tone actually!
Get The Look: Pick a shade with undertones of brown. Use a crayon format for a matte finish. You can also smudge it with your fingers for a natural look.
POPxo Recommends: Lakme 9 to 5 Crease-less Creme Lipstick – CB3 Caramel Cut(Rs 450)
Just like the rest of us, Priyanka opts for a nude lipstick for a night out. Notice how most of the attention is on her long lashes and bold brows?
Get The Look: Remember, the key to finding the perfect nude lipstick to go a shade darker than the natural colour of YOUR lips. Dusty pink work best for medium skintones whereas caramel works best for olive skintones.
POPxo Recommends: Maybelline New York Color Sensational Powder Matte Lipstick – Touch Of Nude (Rs 360)
This glossy wine lip colour is perfect for a night out and can add that bit of jazz to your simple outfit. Also, it’s just the right shade to wear when you want a subtle goth vibe.
Get The Look: Applying a wine-hued lipstick is as tricky as choosing the right bottle of wine. Start by using a lip liner around your mouth to create an illusion of fullness. Apply one layer; use a highlighter on the cupid’s bow to add dimension; apply again.
POPxo Recommends: M.A.C Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Oh Lady, Deep Wine (Rs 1,900)
Priyanka has found her red tone and she doesn’t stop flaunting it!
Get The Look: Before buying a lipper, take a look at your veins. If you can see them, chances are blue-toned lipsticks paired with a matte texture will suit you better. If your veins aren’t visible, go for a red lipstick with pink undertones, preferably, in a glossy finish.
