You Won’t Believe How Much Priyanka Chopra’s Look Has Changed

When we think of Priyanka Chopra's beauty look, we think killer eyebrows. And lips. And, well, her hair is pretty spectacular, too. Obviously, the actress and former Miss World is ridiculously gorgeous. But more impressive than her god-given features is what she does with them. We wouldn't be surprised if the actress has an honorary degree in tightlining the eyes in black kohl or picking the perfect neutral, or bright, lip color to complement every outfit. Though the actress loves wearing her hair in natural waves, she also shines when it’s ironed straight or pulled up in the rare topknot.

Of course, the signature Priyanka look that gives us nonstop beauty inspo today took time to develop. Take those, full, strong brows. Can you even imagine them plucked to pencil-thin arches? In honor of her birthday, we thought it was wise to observe and admire her complete beauty evolution, starting in the 2000s, ahead.

In a departure from wearing her hair blown out and bouncy, Chopra tries old-Hollywood S-waves on for size. She also swaps out her typical neutral lip shade for an intense matte red, starting her long love affair with bright lips.

Chopra often wears her hair with a modern side swoop and a natural wave, but we love this nod to the ‘60s with a center part and heavy teasing at the crown.

This look, worn in homage to the Met Gala’s “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” theme, might seem like a departure for the star, but closer inspection reveals strong brows, tightlined eyes, glowy skin, and a deep lipstick shade. In other words, classic Priyanka.

While all eyes were on bride Meghan Markle, don't overlook the unforgettable makeup looks worn by the guests of the royal wedding. Makeup artist Pati Dubroff tapped shades of pinky-lilac onto Chopra's lids and lips for the occasion — giving us eternal summer beauty inspiration.

Of all the monochromatic makeup looks in the world, this one might just take the cake. The mulberry tones in her lipstick, blush, and eyeshadow brighten her complexion in the most flattering of ways. Plus, does it get any better than a tousled summer ponytail?

If you haven't noticed by now, Chopra often selects a berry lip to elevate her usually natural makeup. Catch her at a press event, a red carpet, or on a date with Nick Jonas and she's likely wearing the rich shade.
