There’s no one that loves a glam beauty shot like Deepika Padukone. Whether you want to figure out your beauty signature or need a push before getting a risky haircut – DP is the poster child for beauty experimentation and her Instagram is a treasure trove of inspiration.
The global superstar is not afraid to be a chameleon when the occasion calls for it. And, while we wax poetic on her out-out beauty showcases, those classic makeup looks she pulls off from time to time are noteworthy, to say the least. Case in point: this ethereal look. Sometimes the simplest things are the most eye-catching, which is especially true with this makeup look. Our fav bits? The impeccable makeup look is not only a perf brunch look to master, but with a few tweaks, it could also serve as your go-to night-out-on-the-town makeup. It’s feminine, versatile, and most importantly, it translates really, really well in pictures. So if you want to turn up the heat by giving it a go, follow these six simple steps.
Begin by creating a luminous base. Prep the skin with a rich moisturiser and buff a radiant-finish foundation all over with a damp sponge. You could also mix a few drops of priming oil to your foundation for added glow. Pat and blend a creamy concealer under the eyes and anywhere else you need coverage. Press a setting powder along the T-zone to keep excess shine at bay.
To create Deepika’s bold brows, begin by brushing your hair with a spoolie. Then, use a powder with a small angled brush to fill any gaps – apply the lighter shade in the inner third of the eyebrow and the darker one for the rest, taking care to define the arches and ends of the brows.
If you’re exacting, enhance your eyes with a couple of light brown contact lenses. Prime your eyelids with primer to set the rest of the eye makeup products up for success. Next, apply a wash of colour all over your eyelids. Choose a nude mauve shade with a matte finish. Make sure to apply it along the lower lash line as well. Then, pick a kohl formula that works for you and trace it along the upper lash line. Apply it with light hands because a little wash of colour is all you need.
Complete the look by applying some mascara to the upper and lower lash line. To make them look extra fluttery, you can also stick on a few short individual lashes in the centre and outer corners of the eyes.
Take a cool-toned brown powder and use an angled brush to contour your face. Apply it along the hollows under your cheekbones, then flip the brush over and use the clean side to blend away the harsh edges to ace a modern-looking contour.
Blend a peachy powder blush on the apple of your cheeks, directed towards your temples. Then, use a highlighting powder on the high points of your face.
To ace the look, all you need is a peachy-brown lip liner to outline the lips. Then, use a lipstick in the same hue all over to get the look.
