Deepika Padukone has never been one to shy away from an out-there makeup look. From unparalleled reverse cat-eye to dark and exaggerated smokey eyes- she’s been there, done that when it comes to every eye makeup trend. While those classic looks she pulls off from time to time are noteworthy, to say the least, we wax poetic of one-of-a-kind showcases. 

Taking to Instagram, Deepika Padukone shared a photo of her above-the-neck spin on throwback glamour. Beyond her oh-so-chic off-white saree making the rounds on social media, it was her experimental approach to makeup that stole the show.  Amalgamating the thick, arched rimming of kohl with a touch of smoke, laden with eyeliner and kajal on the waterline created a sultry look.  She paired it with impeccably chiselled cheekbones and a defined nude lip. What is the ideal wedding guest makeup? There’s no correct answer. But Deepika’s look provides ample inspiration. Take notes bridesmaids, and brides-to-be – more is truly more when it comes to your eyeshadow. The best bits?  It’s feminine, versatile, and most importantly, it translates really, really well in pictures. So if your winter calendar is suddenly booked with one wedding after the next, scroll ahead to learn how to get the actor’s look for yourself.

Deepika Proves Why A Kohl-Rimmed Eye Makeup Look Always Works

Step 1: To Get Glass Skin

Moisturising your skin well is key. Once the skin is well-prepped, makeup will go over it flawlessly. All you need to do is give your face a 2-minute massage with your go-to creamy moisturiser. Then, apply a layer of glow-inducing primer to nail a dewy finish. Layer it with a full-coverage foundation. Once done with the foundation, apply a creamy concealer to cover any uneven patches, then dab setting powder only on areas where you tend to get oily a tapered brush to retain max glow.

Step 2: Let Your Brows Be

For perfectly shaped brows like Deepika, use a pencil to fill and define your arches. When you’re happy with the shape, flip over to the other side of the pen and comb through your brows with the gel. 

Step 3: It’s All About The Eyes

Use an eye primer and apply it all over your lids. Firstly, apply a nude-brown matte eyeshadow to define your eye sockets, blended into the crease and also along the lower lash line. Next, apply a mauve eyeshadow on your lids, softly blending it towards the lower lash line. Use kohl to tight line the upper and lower lash line as well as to create thick, arched rimming of kohl. Fan it out towards the brow to create a flick. You can also use eyeliner for a more precise application. Then, grab a gold glitter and apply it to the inner corner of your eyes on the crease area. If you’re exacting, like us, enhance your eye makeup with a pair of light brown lenses.

Step 4: The Only Drama We Enjoy Is In Our Lashes

When you are applying mascara, look up, and place the wand at the base of your lashes, and move it back and forth, coating the base of your lashes. This will ensure that you have fanned, fluffy lashes. Stick on a pair of falsies if you are exacting!

Step 5: Give Your Face That Chiseling Effect

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.

Step 6: For A Super-Potent Glow!

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.

Step 7: ‘Cos Nude Lips Are Always In Season

Line your lips with a nude-brown lip pencil – you could stick within your natural lip lines or overline slightly to create the illusion of fuller lips. Then, colour inside the lines with the pencil. Go over it with a layer of lipstick in a muted peach-brown hue. Spritz a makeup setting spray to keep your look from cracking, smudging, and melting.
