The evening also saw the launch of Kareena’s first ever make-up line titled Kareena Kapoor Khan by Lakm Absolute.
Talking about the evolution from being a brand ambassador to a co-creator with the brand, Kareena told IANS here: It has been great as we have been associated for almost eight years so it has been a long collaboration and make-up is something every actor wears so coming together to do a make-up tie up, I think the timing has been just perfect.
Describing make-up as a woman’s best friend, the actress said that she feels honoured to launch her maiden range.
Jaising, whose collection comprised hues like pinks, blues, blacks, moss green, saw a heavy use of embellishments, glitter and sparkle.

The Veere Di Wedding star, who sported minimal make-up, said walking down the runway this time was even more special for her.
It is also because of the outfit. I for the felt like ‘yeah, okay! I’m the ultimate diva’. It is all because of Monisha. The touch of her adding glamour… she added.
