Drama, romance, OTT sets, enchanting characters – but what we look for with every new film is the makeup transformation of the leading ladies, and Karan Johar’s latest promises to deliver. The protagonists of Kalank went through extreme beauty transformations and here’s your guide to each look.

Madhuri Dixit Nene

From sexy to playfully romantic, Madhuri Dixit Nene has played every role and embodied the look and personality of her character. In Johar’s latest, Mrs. Nene is seen in a soft, matte brown smoky look, paired with a metallic earthy lip and brows to die for.

Here’s a breakdown on her look and how you can recreate it:
Total Makeover FF cream gives you the perfect matte base while you can use Stay Defined to fill in your eyebrows. For the dark smoky eye, apply the matte brown eye shadow from the Manish Malhotra 9-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette in Rendezvous on the eyelid and lower lash line along with the LIT Matte Eyeliner in Mood inside waterline and the Threesome Mascara are all you need to create the perfect look for your eyes. Contour your face with the Chisel it Bronzer in Gameface and add a touch of blush with the Chisel It Pink Blush in Gameface. Add that glow with the Chisel It in Showstopper highlighter and finally, define your lips with Perfect Curves in Terra + the highlighter from Chisel It in Show Stopper in the centre of your lips. Perfect for a date night or a night out with friends, this look is one to stay.

Alia Bhatt

Alia Bhatt has played numerous characters and each to perfection. Last seen in Gully Boy in a ghetto avatar, Bhatt’s transformation to a royal in Kalank is starkly visible. Donning a no-makeup-look, with a soft rosy touch and kohl lined eyes, she radiates on-screen. Here’s how you can also get this fresh look:

For a dewy base, use the Total Makeover FF Cream and fill your eyebrows with the Stay Defined Brows. Add some drama to your eyes with a double layer of Threesome Mascara and double-up the coral blush from the Chisel It in Show Stopper as your eye shadow. A swish of Jet Set Eyes in Brun inside waterline and the bronzer from Chisel It in Show Stopper on lower lash line finish the eyes making them pop. Use a liquid highlighter like Spotlight and the Chisel It in Show Stopper Bronzer for contouring. A puff of Chisel It in Show Stopper Coral Blush on your cheeks brings out the dewiness and a flush of color, giving it a natural look. A dab of Perfect Curves in Spice It Up lipstick on your lips finish the no-make-up look, perfect for a day out with your girl friends.

Sonakshi Sinha

From a simple, shy girl to rocker chic, Sonakshi Sinha has played many roles to perfection. As we anticipate what her role in Kalank is, let's recreate her soft glam look with a dewy glow, light kohl and a natural pink tint on the lips.

Start with the perfect base with Total Makeover FF Cream and fill in your eyebrows with Stay Defined in Ebony and Walnut. Add a touch of colour with the coral blush from Chisel It in Show Stopper on your eyes and tight line your eyes with Stay Defined in Ebony and Walnut and Jet Set Eyes in Noir inside your waterline with a slight smudge on your lower lash line. Add a layer or two of Threesome Mascara to complete your eye look. The Chisel It in Show Stopper Coral Blush gives you the perfect flush of colour on your cheeks while the Bronzer from Chisel It in Game Face is easy to use for contouring. Accentuate your high points with Spotlight Liquid Highlighter and add a tint of colour to your lips with Perfect Curves in Biscotti.  

While the trailer gave us a glimpse of the leading ladies' looks, we can't wait to see their various looks in the movie.
