While Deepika Padukone has kept us glued to her fashion A-game at the Cannes Film Festival, her show-stopping beauty looks are the ones to set the Internet ablaze. Once again, Deepika Padukone was seen lighting up the Cannes circuit, and this time, it was with her eyes. Defined, brushed-up brows framed her face while nude lips and flushed coral cheeks accented her eyes without taking away from them. The final result was silky and diffused – like a tendril of smoke rising from a lit match.
With a smoky eye look made in black and silver hues and a sultry, to-die-for hairdo, Deepika’s glamorous look came just in time for fans to replicate on their summery nights out. The look that has now gone viral on IG serves as a crucial cornerstone in the party girl’s arsenal. It’s feminine, versatile, and most importantly, it translates really well in pictures. So if your summer calendar is suddenly booked with one party after the next, scroll ahead to learn how to get the actor’s look for yourself.
Prep your skin with a glow-boosting moisturiser. Then, buff a little layer of an illuminating serum-infused primer to retain max glow. Make sure you don’t forget the neck area. Use a damp sponge to apply foundation as it’ll help you get a dewy finish. Dot and blend concealer under the eyes and on any scars or blemishes you wish to cover.
Fill in any gaps in the brows with your eyebrow pencil and brush them in place with a spoolie. If you’re blessed with fuller eyebrows, you can just use a brow gel to brush them up.
Prime your eyelids. Next, choose a nude brown eyeshadow and apply it all over your lids, crease, and along the lower lash line. Blend the edges using a clean fluffy blending brush. Then, grab a black eye shadow and use a blending brush to apply it across the upper eyelids. Don’t forget to apply it onto the lower lash line as well. Then, use a fluffy brush to smudge it out to form a cat-eye. You can take a dark brown shade on the pencil brush to intensify the definition. Finally, take a silver eyeshadow and add it to the inner corner of your eyes to make them pop.
Complete the look by applying some mascara to the upper and lower lash line. To make them look extra fluttery, stick on a few short individual lashes in the center 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 nail a natural-looking contour.
Blend a peachy cream 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 brown nude lip liner to outline the lips. Then, use lipstick in the same hue all over to get the look.
