Deepika Padukone is just iconic! And she once again used her star status to make the traditional saree shine abroad at the Cannes Film Festival. This year, she arrived in style and has already made her second appearance in a Sabyasachi saree with a hair and makeup look that can only be best described as bold, dramatic, and powerful. Taking a swing with one of the edgiest winged eyeliner looks we’ve ever seen, she slays the red carpet like a classic diva. Leave it to Deepika to make the traditional saree the most high fashion ensemble at a prestigious international event!
Her choice of hair and makeup couldn’t be more on point and we commend her for it. Seeing as black and gold is one of our favourite colour combinations for traditional attires, we can’t wait to replicate this gorgeous diva’s beauty game on ourselves. Here’s how you can get the look.
Deepika Padukone’s Dramatic Makeup Decode
Step 1: The Base-ics
Ace your base with a combination of skincare and makeup. First prep your skin for makeup with a CTM routine and a primer. Dot on a skincare-infused foundation and blend it on your face and neck. Use a concealer on areas like the under eyes, contours of the nose and chin. Set your base by spritzing a setting spray on a beauty blender and dabbing it on your face and neck. Sweep some setting powder for an extra long lasting effect.
Step 2: Arches Up
Groom your brows to perfection by using shades of brown. First brush them upwards and outwards with a spoolie and fill in the gaps with a brown brow pencil. Brush again to blend and then swipe on a tinted brow gel for hold.
Step 3: Eye-conic Details
Prep your lids with an eye primer so that it holds the pigments you apply in place and will prevent them from smudging or fading. Blend a brown eyeshadow on your lids and above the crease. Trace a winged shape along the crease of your lids extending to the outer corners and then connecting to your lash lines with a black gel eyeliner. Smear the gel eyeliner inside the shape as well and dab a black eyeshadow over it to set the liner and add a more luxe effect. Clean up the edges with an angled brush and concealer and highlight the brow bones with a shimmery gold eyeshadow. Apply brown kohl on the lower lash lines and swipe on mascara.
Step 4: Glow Nation
Bring on the glow with highlighter and bronzer. First apply a shimmery bronzer to the cheekbones, jawline, and hairline. Next, go in with a satin finish pink blush on the apple of your cheeks. Blend a gold toned highlighter on the high points of your face.
Step 5: Berry Good
Make sure to exfoliate and moisturise your lips so that they are soft and smooth. Outline with a brown lip liner and then fill in colour with a berry lip tint.
Deepika’s Royal Hair Game
The Gehraiyaan actress’ hairstyle was fit for a princess as she rocked the prettiest embellished hair wreath with a textured chignon. To get your hair looking like Deepika’s, follow these simple steps. First wash your locks with a frizz defying shampoo and conditioner and then apply a serum while your hair is still damp. Blow dry your hair smooth and then tong it to achieve a loose wavy and curly texture. Maintain two centimetres of your natural hair partitioning at the front and divide your hair into two vertical halves. Twist these halves together and pin them in a bun at the back to form a chignon. Now, wear the hair wreath and spritz on a hair spray.
We’re obsessed with Deepika’s Cannes beauty looks so far and this beauty moment is surely going to make history. Try out this beauty look on yourself if you wish to hone the same level of panache.
