Let us talk about how she became a trendsetter in the beauty industry with this snippet of her entire beauty evolution.
When It All Began With a Bang – Early 2000s
As a young girl who has just been crowned as Miss World in 2000, Priyanka Chopra’s beauty look comprised of tight lined black eyeliner and frosty brown lip shades, which is still a mainstay in 2019. With shimmery pink eye shadow and a traditional glossy bindi, she celebrated her win sticking to her Indian roots.
After her Bollywood debut in 2003 with The Hero: Love Story Of A Spy, we can see her emerging as an A-list star in a fresh blowout hair and minimal makeup.
How Fashion Changed Priyanka Chopra’s Beauty Journey
Come 2008, when her movie Fashion made a huge noise at the Box Office, Priyanka Chopra finally found her makeup niche – eye lashes and full lips. All dressed up as the star that she is, the actress graced the IIFA 2009 event with dark kohl-rimmed eyes and a hint of glitter eye shadow.
Her nude lip shade stepped up the party look with a smudge of body makeup. To add to this, she was found embracing her wavy hair with its newly painted brown highlights. This look finally established her a fresh game in the beauty scene of Bollywood’s trendsetters.
The Years When She Mixed It Up a Little
Pink nude lips, black eyeliner with smokey shades and warm glowy skin – this was Priyanka’s go-to makeup. Having found her comfort zone in the beauty scene, it was time for her to experiment with her hair! From wavy cuts to adding light highlights, the actress found solace in a layered bob with the ends flipped out as she shot her scenes for the hit movie Anjaana Anjani. The hair color too was warmer, thus complementing her naturally beautiful Indian skin tone.
2012 to 2014 were the years when Priyanka Chopra had already established herself as a queen in Bollywood. This gave her ample bandwidth to experiment with her looks and amp up her game. 2012 saw her flaunting long hair with neatly cut bangs and intense black smokey eyes. She carried this look till the beginning of 2013 until she showed up for the premiere of Don 2. Donned in a chic white saree, Priyanka Chopra’s beauty look comprised of full dark eyelashes, glossy brown lips and middle parted retro glam hair.
Start 2013, the star began to wear her eyebrows thicker, thus making way for her signature eyebrows that we see now. She also tried on different hairdos, from braids to blowouts to significant Hollywood curls. By the end of 2014, Priyanka also moved up to glossy, bright red lips from her usual nude choice.
The Start of Priyanka Chopra’s Hollywood Episode
In 2015, when Priyanka moved on towards ‘world domination’, with her American debut Quantico, we saw her style her hair from curls to poker straight to beachy waves. Bright pink and red lips were her makeup motto with her showing up in an assymetrical bob hair cut that turned out to be a chic style statement.
By 2016, Priyanka is a well-known global star. The year also saw a mad streak of beauty experimentation with green eyeliners, bow buns, sculpted hairdos and lipsticks in shades of purple grey. The actress was finally catching up to the signature Hollywood glam looks. Have a look at her glam style and makeup as she graced every award event in Hollywood.

One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each other's faiths and cultures. And so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so so amazing. An important part of the pre wedding rituals for the girl in an Indian wedding is the Mehendi. Once again we made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed. @nickjonas
