From Saira Banu's winged eyeliner in the 60s, to Aishwarya's purple lipstick in 2016, Bollywood performers have dependably been trailblazers, particularly in the excellence world. The principal Indian sound film was discharged in 1931, and from that point forward, we've been admiring performing artists as symbols and icons. Every decade of motion pictures has its own particular harvest of stars, and it's these ladies that set the ball moving for all us insignificant mortals. How we wear our hair and how we do our make-up mirrors mainstream culture, and a substantial part of that, for us in India, is Bollywood. Here's a gander at how excellence patterns have been set by prominent performers in the course of the most recent century. 


Madhubala made her presentation as a courageous woman in this decade and was a moment hit. Her hair ringlets and mid-brow bindi turned into extremely popular. Intense foreheads were likewise noticeable in this decade, on account of performing artists. 



The 1950s saw the ascent of on-screen character Sadhana who wore her hair in a bouffant with blasts that tumbled to mid-temple. This style turned into a faction most loved's despite everything it known as the Sadhana cut. 



Major winged eyeliner showed up in the 1950s because of performing artists like Waheeda Rehman and Vyjayanthimala. In any case, it was not until the 1960s that it genuinely turned into a fever. The most celebrated driving women of this period to be specific Saira Banu, Mumtaz, Sharmila Tagore and Tanuja, all were infatuated with the winged kohl look. 



The 70s were a progressive period for Bollywood. With Parveen Babi and Zeenat Aman administering the perch, donning quill blasts and shiny red lips. Also, on account of them, that is the means by which most (in vogue) women styled themselves. 



Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit to Juhi Chawla to Meenakshi Sheeshadri, most performers were seen with huge hair and pink everything: pink lipstick, become flushed and even eye shadow! Then again, Rekha with her dull, polished lips and gold eye shadow brought forth a pattern of copycat vamps. 



Pinks were supplanted by metallics and tans. Lips would be lined by a darker lip liner and filled in with a shade lighter, with performing artists like Rani Mukerji, Aishwarya Rai and Kajol driving the way. Enormous hair was supplanted with smooth 'dos. 



Everything goes, except if one thing interfaces all our most loved stars, it's incredible skin and very much characterized eyes. Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Kangna Ranaut favoring them. Sonam Kapoor and Katrina Kaif ... at the point when don't they look perfect? What's more, we're storing establishment, BB and CC creams, on account of them!
