As an teenage Indian girl growing up in the US, Priyanka Chopra admits it took her a long time to come to terms with the colour of her skin. “I’ve been working since I was 17, and initially (beauty) companies didn’t have colours that matched Asian or Indian skin. I definitely have access to products that are specifically for my skin (now). But it happened pretty recently, I think — about 10 years (ago),” she recently proclaimed in an interview. But one look at the Quantico star’s incredible run of the red carpet, and it’s clear that she’s discovered a smart solution that’s clearly working out well.
It’s as simple as wearing the right shade for your skin tone—which, for dusky skin is — wait for it — coral.
The actress has embraced all 50 shades of coral by introducing it in her wardrobe, her lipstick collection and for all we know, even in her nightwear. One of her favourite make-up looks is a bright coral lip colour, which instantly brings the attention to her most prominent feature. Needless to say, the bright shade looks stunning on dusky skin, and we’re hoping more dusky goddesses will make this bright, beautiful colour their trademark.
Every Indian woman who faced the dilemma of not knowing what colour suits them now has the answer. It’s coral.
