Kareena Kapoor Khan Launches her Debut Makeup Collection With Lakme

After rising to fame with movies like “Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham,” “Jab We Met,” and her most recent box-office hit, “Veere Di Wedding,” everyone’s sassy fashionista and Bollywood beloved, Kareena Kapoor Khan, is on to her next venture. She’s left no stone underturned in the entertainment and fashion industries, so it’s about time she tackled the mammoth that is the world of beauty.

Today marks the day that Kapoor Khan boldly announced her collaboration with Lakme Absolute and the debut launch of her makeup collection titled “The Kareena Kapoor Khan Collection.”

Labeling the line as one of her most “personal projects this year,” the Bollywood diva is set to explore the beauty industry one shade at a time. This exclusive line is meant for the diva inside of every woman. As the star actress says about herself, her personality has many shades, and there’s no reason that women can’t channel them all.

You can choose to wear lippies from the collection that promote Kapoor Khan’s edgy, magazine cover girl looks; ooze in suave with lipstick shades like cherry reds and lusty hues of pink; or, keep it chic and minimalistic, with a pop of cheek contour, just like she prefers it.

Have we got you wondering what else is included in the entire collection?

Get ready to let Kapoor Khan paint you pretty.

17 Ayurvedic Beauty Brands on our Radar Right Now

Holistic beauty trends are more prevalent than ever — that makes ayurvedic beauty brands incredibly sought-after, as well. Do you find yourself asking what your beauty products are actually made of? A lot of us even resort to food products for a skincare routine such as honey for face wash.

The term “Ayurvedic Beauty” is getting more recognition outside the South Asian world as well.

Ayurvedic beauty is coined upon the term “Ayurveda,” which originated in Hindu culture as the basis of utilizing the five life forms — air, water, ether, fire, and earth — to heal the human body.
