Kangana's look is glamorously understated.
It’s a role that the versatile actress has poured her heart and soul into. She plays a Muslim nautch girl who falls in love with a teenage Hindu boy (played by Paras Arora). The offbeat Rajjo stays with you long after the trailer. As Kangana Ranautadmits, “I spent many days watching nautch girls in Nagpada to get under their skin. All this effort has paid off. Her look is glamorous yet understated and designer Reza Sheriffhas encapsulated the look beautifully in a Swarovski-studded green and blue choli. The dual toned outfit with blue diamonds and sequins has a stylish yet unfussy feel as Kangana dances to the song Zulmi re zulmi in the film. Her look too is simple except for the item number where she flaunts a sweet but naughty expression as she shows off her skimpy choli.
In a few stills, Kangana is seen wearing bright bold orange lipstick and thick eye liner minus the kohl. I really like the orange-lip trend and am convinced it's here to stay. I bring you a very simple tutorial so that you too can sport Rajjo's brazen orange lips-thick black liner look.
Start with your face
On a clean moisturized face apply your favorite foundation base and powder it to set.Take your pick from Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse 16hr or L'Oreal Paris Matte Morphose Foundation depending on the coverage you need. For blush I would recommend a coral tint. Apply it on the apple of your cheeks for a fresh coral hue. I recommend Maybelline Cheeky Glow in shadeFresh Coral
Get Rajjo's eyes
In the film, Kangana sports neutral eyes with thick bold liner on the upper lash line that makes her eyes look even larger. Follow the simple steps below to get eyes like Rajjo's.
Step 1: Apply pearly mocha brown shimmer eye shadow all over upper lids. I recommend L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Eyeshadow Palette-Cannes'13 Special Collection (Shade Infiniment Bronze)
Step 2: Give depth to the eyes by applying dark brown eye shadow on the outer V and blend it in the crease too. Try Lakme Absolute Eye Color Baked Shadow (Shade Day Shimmer).
Step 3: Apply liquid liner as a border as shown in the picture to form a neat outline of the desired thickness. Give L'Oreal Paris Super Liner Carbon Gloss (Shade Carbon Black) a try.
Step 4: Fill in with the same black liner.
Step 5: If you have big eyes you may apply kohl on the lower lash line to make your eyes look proportionate. Girls with smaller eyes may avoid kohl. You could use Maybelline The Colossal Kajal 12hr Smudge Free or Lakme Eyeconic Kajal.
Step 6: Complete the eye makeup with amascara formulated to give you luscious curls like L'Oreal Paris Lash Architect 4D Mascara.
Tangerine lippies like Rajjo's
Orange lips have been in trend for a while.I can see they will continue to be the rage over the New Year too. It's my favorite tint as well. Apply a matte orange lipstick evenly, starting from the middle of your lips, working towards the corner. Kangana wear a pure warm orange shade in the picture above. Check out Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick (Shade Designer) or Colorbar Soft Touch Lipstick (Shade Citrine 40)
Accessorize the look
Kangana has naturally wavy curly hair that wears simplythrough the movie. A side part and simple braid does the trick. You can see she wears lots of ethnic silver jhumkis (earrings) and polka pearl jewelry in her dance numbers.
