If there’s one actress who should be given an award for pulling off the riskiest beauty looks, it has to be Deepika Padukone. The actress is not just known for making stunning style statements at red carpet events, but also for jaw-dropping and experimental beauty looks. From sharp, edgy face makeup to sultry eye makeup, the diva oozes oomph each time she makes an appearance.

And, she’s the talk-of-the-town once again for looking like a million bucks at the Nykaa Femina Beauty Awards 2020. Her black gown with dramatic sleeves complemented her bronze eye makeup so well, we cannot even.

Here’s a step-by-step makeup look decode to get you started.




Step 01: But first, skincare. Hydrated skin will make your skin glow even under layers of makeup. Apply the Ponds Super Light Gel Oil Free Moisturiser With Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin E all over your face and neck. Wait for a few minutes and allow the moisturiser to absorb into your skin before you start with your base makeup.

Step 02: Create a dewy base with the help of the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation. Infused with the goodness of argan oil, this foundation helps nourish your skin, as well as, protect it from the sun with added SPF 45.

Step 03: Cancel out skin imperfections with the Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Mousse Concealer. This mousse concealer will help minimize the appearance of dark spots, pores, blemishes and leave you with a smooth finish and an even-toned skin.

Step 04: Add a little hint of glow to your cheeks using the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Blush Shimmer Brick - In Pink palette. Use the earthy tone from the palette to avoid going overboard with the blush.

Step 05: Reach for the Lakmé Absolute Highlighter - Moon-Lit to highlight the high points of your face such as above your cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, forehead, chin, and above the cupid’s bow.


Eyes & Lips

Eyes & Lips

Step 01: Brush your eyebrows with a spoolie to tame stray hairs. Then, reach for an eyebrow pencil to fill in your brows and to sharpen the arches. We suggest you get your hands on the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown for evenly styled and defined brows.

Step 02: Use the shimmery bronze hue from the Lakmé Absolute Infinity Eye Shadow Palette - Soft Nudes and cover your lids entirely with it, going beyond your crease line.

Step 03: Using a flat eyeshadow brush, apply the same shadow onto your lower lids and smudge it for a dramatic effect.

Step 04: Add more definition to your eye makeup with generous coats of mascara. Use the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara - Black for voluminous lashes.

Step 05: Tie your look together with a muted lip tone. We suggest you use the Elle 18 Color Pops Silk Lipstick - B41 to finish off your look.
