It’s a non-brainer that Deepika Padukone is the literal queen of beauty, talent and of course, our hearts *yes, we’re truly lovestruck*. With her new movie Gehraiyaan set to release soon, Deepika is in full work mode and may I say it’s been a delight to watch her glam up and take over the internet with her breathtaking looks. She has now taken it up a notch with her latest black and white look which honestly oozes such unapologetically boss babe vibes that we’re floored. So, of course, we had to instantly break down the makeup and hair for you to emulate this look asap!
Step #1: Make sure to cleanse and moisturise your face before starting with the makeup to prep your skin. Once done, use the Lakmé Absolute Undercover Gel Primer to create a perfect canvas for the makeup as it conceals imperfections and smoothes out your skin.
Step #2: For the base, pick the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation as it’s infused with argan oil that will not only moisturise your skin but also give it a radiant dewy finish. Next, blend the Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Liquid Concealer over blemishes and under-eye areas.
Step #3: This look is perfectly contoured and bronzed so it’s time to pick up your favourite contour and go over with it on the sides of your forehead, cheekbones, jaw and sides of your nose for a sharp look. Next, use a bronzing powder on the same areas to turn up the intensity.
Step #4: Highlight generously on your cheekbones, tip of your nose, forehead, browbones and chin with the Lakmé Absolute Liquid Highlighter. We are going for radiant, sultry and dewy!
Step #5: Finish off with a dewy setting spray.
Eyes and lips
Step #1: Prep your eyes with a primer and then use the Lakmé Absolute Infinity Eyeshadow Palette - Soft Nudes for eyeshadow. Use the pink and silver together and blend them on your eyelids.
Step #2: For eyeliner, use the Lakmé Eyeconic Liquid Eyeliner and create a thick winged eyeliner look.
Step #3: Curl your lashes with an eyelash curler. Then, apply Lakmé Eyeconic Volume Mascara for va-va-voom lashes.
Step #4: Brush up your eyebrows and create light stroked with the Lakmé Absolute 3D Brow Definer on your brows to make them look naturally thick.
Step #5: For lips, we’re going pink with the Lakmé Absolute Precision Lip Paint - Deep Fuschia to create perfectly pink lips like Deepika.
Step #1: Apply gel generously on your hair and part your hair sideways. While the gel is still wet make a low ponytail in the back. Create texture in the front by pulling up some strands.
Step #2: Make sure to keep in mind to use a slightly thicker hair tie for the ponytail. Now, start braiding under the hair tie. Use a thin elastic hair tie that matches your hair to secure the braid. While braiding, pull your hair away from your head so that when the gel sets, your hair will slightly stand in the back.
Step 3#: Take a toothbrush and put some hair gel on it. Brush it over on your baby hairs in the front to create a clean sleek look. You can apply the extra gel on your hair when you’re done with the hair to make it look sleek.
