Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, featuring Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh takes the audience on a nostalgic journey—reminiscent of classic Bollywood cinema, replete with a chiffon sari-clad heroine grooving to a romantic ballad set amid snow-capped mountaintops. The film, which marks Karan Johar’s return to direction after 2016’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, along with a strong supporting cast of legendary actors like Jaya Bachchan, Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi.
True to its ‘Dharma-tic’ nature, Bhatt’s Rani has all the qualities of the quintessential Bollywood heroine. She exudes charm and elegance, along with an old-world allure that has everyone talking about her make-up looks throughout the film.
From kohl-rimmed eyes to timeless jhumkas, her beauty looks have become the talk of the town, setting trends and inspiring fans worldwide. A delicate balance of simplicity and glamour, her clean and radiant face with a sensuous cat-eye effect and voluminous lashes has set a new standard for beauty in Bollywood.
Here’s How To Get Rani’s Look
Lucky for you, we’ve got the inside scoop on how you can recreate Bhatt’s make-up look, courtesy of a fabulous content creator, Nandini Sharma. She took up the challenge to decode Bhatt’s make-up look from Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’s chart-topping track ‘What Jhumka?’ and boy, did she nail it!
Sharma’s mantra for this make-up look was minimalism, which meant opting for no foundation. However, you always have to get your basics right—cleanse and moisturise. Get that natural glow!
Sharma then proceeded to erase any traces of those late-night Netflix marathons by dabbing on some concealer in all the right places.
Now, let’s talk about the pièce de résistance: the eyes! Bhatt’s eyes are the star of the show, and Sharma knew exactly how to make them pop. She began with lining her upper and lower lash line with kohl and then smudged the outer corners to create a fierce cat-eye effect.
But wait, there’s more! To add depth and volume to her peepers, Sharma piled on heaps of mascara. We’re talking the kind of lashes that can make hearts flutter and jaws drop!
Balance the heavy eyes with a nude pink lipstick and a subtle flush of pink blush across the cheeks, to complete the charm of this enchanting look.
But hold your jhumkas, folks! The accessories were an integral part of this make-up magic. Our in-house Bollywood buff had all the quintessential Hindi cinema bling on lockdown. She donned a stunning bindi, a nose ring, and of course, those jhumkas, which never go out of style.
Not only did Sharma nail the make-up, but she also embraced a Rani-inspired sari with an ombré effect. In our opinion, this is going to be the go-to look for those upcoming sangeet nights. After all, it strikes the perfect balance between glamour and simplicity, just like Alia Bhatt’s character in Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
