Katrina Kaif, one of Bollywood’s most sought after actresses, initially faced trouble in the industry due to her inability to speak Hindi fluently. Today, she is one of the most popular actresses, with a large fan base.
She is blessed with soft features, an innocent face, luscious lips, and a glowing complexion. These are her strengths and you will always see her highlighting them. Her makeup is always flawless and glowy which hints at a beautiful complexion. Her lips are always the focus of her face with soft, pastel lip colour topped with lots of shiny gloss to make them look fuller and luscious. She loves to apply loads of mascara to flaunt her lashes. She has long, thick hair which she keeps simple and loose to get a delicate, girly look. Whenever she works with younger actors she gets front or side bangs, straight hair and wears a headband, which makes her look at least 10 years younger than her actual age.
