Kajal Takes Center Stage: Bollywood’s Favourite Makeup Look Is Dominating The Runways

Kajal Takes Center Stage: Bollywood’s Favourite Makeup Look Is Dominating The Runways

I spy B-Town divas showing off kohl-rimmed eyes again — across runways at Lakmé Fashion Week and at recent photoshoots. It’s one of the biggest beauty trends taking over Bollywood RN. I don’t know about you, but it’s giving me major Geet from Jab We Met feels.

If you’re a kajal enthusiast, take inspiration from these celebrity-inspired kajal looks.

A Warm Smokey Eye

A sleek, barely-there dash of kajal along the waterline powered Athiya Shetty’s glossy-lipped look at Lakmé Fashion Week. A warm, smokey eye. The result was a sultry, seductive smokey eye.

The MyGlamm Superfoods Raven Waterproof Kajal is the perfect product to help you recreate this look. It applies smoothly, it’s extremely pigmented and long-wearing!


Sara Or Kareena? We’ll Never Know

Sara Ali Khan has always played around with kajal — much like her stepmother, Kareena Kapoor Khan, she lines the upper and lower waterlines with jet-black kohl to brighten and bolden the eyes dramatically. The actress has paired the look with a subtle shade of red in the background. Thank you, Lakmé Fashion Week.

Light & Laidback Like Neha

Neha Dhupia, too, fancied herself some kajal recently. Dhupia didn’t do much with the upper lids. A simple streak of kajal was enough for her — old-school and minimal.

Old Bollywood Charm & Malaika Go Well Together

Malaika opted for a very Hema Malini-Zeenat Aman-esque look at Lakmé Fashion Week. Almost like old-school Bollywood was the theme. The bold winged liner paired with a nude kohl pencil in the waterline ensured that all our eyes were only on Mal’s.

‘Shanaya, Shanaya’ Plays In The Background

Lakmé Fashion Week’s beauty looks were top-tier, and Kapoor is proof. The 23-year-old actress’ dewy skin was dramatised by a smudged, sultry dash of kohl along the lower lash line. Notice how the bright yellow of Kapoor’s saree contrasts the jet-black of her eyes. You can use the MAC In Extreme Dimension Kajal Eye Liner to recreate this look.


And we didn’t just spot kohl-rimmed eyes at Lakmé Fashion Week, BTW. Celebrities have been silently bringing back Kohl for a couple of months now. Here are some more photos to inspire your next makeup look.

Janhvi Kapoor Channeled Sridevi & How

Janhvi Kapoor has (finally) done away with her clean-girl aesthetic. This look stirred memories of Sridevi’s ultra-bold, kajal-rimmed eyes.

The O.G Queen Had To Make The List

Geet from Jab We Met? Is this how you look now? I buy it. I’m obsessed with how the outer corners extend into tiny wings at the end.

Mouni’s Naagin Alter Ego Is Showing

Like Kareena, Mouni’s, waterline, too is drenched in kohl. But unlike Kareena, Roy’s wings sprout from the lower lash line instead. Our O.G Naagin always favoured heavy, intense eyes anyway.


Ananya’s Not The Girl Next Door Anymore

Ananya has successfully shed her girl-next-door image. The girl is dabbling and experimenting in beauty. I credit much of the transition to kohl. Panday recently went all in with a tightlined, glitter-heavy look, and I’m living for it. The Maybelline New York Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner is equipped with a razor-thin tip that cooperates with my uncoordinated, shaky hands.

The Start Of Bhumi’s Obsession With Kohl

Bhumi’s love-affair with kohl-heavy looks continues. This bronze, smokey look is fueled by a thick silhouette of kohl around the upper and lower lash lines. Heavy on the glamm, it’s a red carpet-ready look.

I’m obsessed with these celeb kajal looks. It’s justified. No?
