It might be mired in controversy but there’s no denying that Deepika Padukone’s Padmavati character is going down in the history books. When the film’s poster was released, we were mesmerised with how flawless her makeup was and that it seemed to enhance the exquisite jewellery she was sporting. If you plan on recreating it at the next wedding you attend, read our handy guide first. We got Sushma Khan, National Creative Director- Makeup, Lakmé Salon to break it down for you.
For The Eyes:
Blend a soft brown cream eyeshadow starting from the eyelid towards the brow bone. Use the same colour on the lower lid as well. Apply a pearl shimmer powder on the inner corner and the center of the eyes. Line them with a thick black gel liner on the upper lashes, extending it slightly upwards. Fill the water line with a dark black kohl pencil. Smudge it on the water line. Finish off with double coats of Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Volumising Mascara to thicken and curl your lashes for a dramatic effect.
Shape the brows with a medium brown matte shadow: the bolder, the better. Shape them in your natural shape but mildly thicker. Join the brows at the center using a light brown eyebrow pencil to give them a thick look, which is natural. Strong brows can make or break this look.
Keep the cheeks minimal with a natural blush for a healthy glow. No contouring is required, as the skin must look very natural. Just use a bronzer if you have a round face. Smile and highlight from the cheeks to the ear using a natural face sheer highlighter. Complete the look with a cinnamon brown lip colour in a matte finish. This is a colour that will suit all Indian skin shades.
