It’s just one of those days, the kind where I have the blues and what better than Madhuri Dixit‘s million-watt smile to brighten up your day? To some she’s the epitome of Bollywood beauty and to others, she’s the quintessential woman of grace. Everyone knows she’s still got it, but there’s nothing like going through her best work from the ’80s and ’90s. And as resident beauty blogger, I love reminiscing about the glossy pink cheeks and technicolor lips that seemed to dominate the makeup scene back in the day. While some may not be able to carry off metallic pink or barbie doll lips, Madhuri can do no wrong, am I right? So here’s a list of 7 times she rocked the retro pink pout (no reference to the Sunny Leone song).
1) This Glossy, Coral Pink
It only highlights her beautiful smile.
2) This Neon Pink
Boom! Just like her expressions.
3) The Metallic Pink
Okay maybe not the ’90s, but almost the ’90s. 2002 is the same thing and that’s a whole lot of pink on her face.
4) The Kissable Pink
All I can think of is how much pink Shah Rukh Khan would have on his lip if that kiss actually took place.
5) The “Natural” Pink
Yeah, because that’s what my lips look like when I’m brushing or straight out of the shower… baby doll pink. Psshtt.
6) The Super-Shiny Pink
That über chamkila pout is judging your pout. Do people even wear this shade anymore?
7) This Natural Matte Pout
A shift towards the more nude-pink pouts.
If you’re looking to bring back the retro pink pout, here are a couple of lipsticks you can try out.
