#Cannes2017: Get Deepika’s Plum Perfect Pout From Day 1 In Under 2 Minutes
Day 1 of the Cannes Film Festival kickstarted yesterday and, as usual, we were waiting for the moment our Bollywood divas would hit the red carpet. Up first this time round was L’Oréal Paris’ new face, and our beloved Deepika Padukone!
Giving us 3 looks across the day, this gorgeous beauty started it all off with a dramatic summery blue eye and a nude-ish lip, then moving into a black and grey smokey eye. She later walked the red carpet in an Marchesa gown and de Grisogono jewellery, and OMG #JawDrop!
After becoming the new brand ambassador of the international makeup brand, she launched the gorgeous #LifeAtCannes collection, which pretty much gave us a hint of what makeup she’d be wearing at this film festival.

Her entire ensemble for the red carpet event on Day 1 revolved around a deep Bordeaux vibe, which included her makeup. The focus of it being her lips, she chose to pout in a soft, yet striking matte plum, most likely from the #LifeAtCannes collection, which we absolutely love too.
So if you’re looking to get those sultry wine-kissed lips just like DP, then here’s how you can achieve it — in UNDER 2 minutes.
Make sure you prime your lips with a lip primer, in order to make sure your colour lasts all night. After priming your lips, add a touch of concealer — this basically creates an even base and will give you the truest form of pigment the lip colour has to offer.
Once your lips are prepped, take a plum liner and line them. You can also subtly fill them in too, to create a more defined look. Taking L’Oréal Paris’ Caresse Lip Tint in Plum Blossom, start colouring your pout in. Since it is a powdered base, you have more control on the intensity of the tint on your lips.
As you can tell, Deepika has a pretty bold, dark lip on, so if you want her look, layer the pigment on. Smack your lips together and voila! your plum perfect pout is all set!
If you’d like her entire look, then don’t worry, we’re not leaving you hanging. Scroll down to see how YOU can go all out with Deepika Padukone’s Cannes Day 1 makeup!
Before you start with the lip, create that perfect summer glow with the right base. Prime your skin and prep it for the products to come next. Taking a foundation that has a semi-sheer finish, apply it evenly across your face and neck.
Deepika’s base gives off a slight glow, so lightly highlight the high points of your face, especially your cheekbones, brow bones, and the bridge of your nose. Add that peachy touch to the cheeks with a light blush — make the apples of your cheeks feel shy, y’all.
Moving onto the eyes, her makeup is a little shimmery, with her classic smokey eye by her side…but it’s very subtle. Taking a brown eyeshadow palate, create a light smokey eye on your eyelids — start with the deeper shade in the outer corner of each eye, blend in a medium brown on the crease, and add a touch of the lighter brown on the inner corners of the eyes. This will totally brighten up your peepers.
Taking a little bit of the darker shadow, lightly fill in your lower waterline with the powder. Taking a brown eye pencil, line the top and bottom lids, and smudge out the edges to create a softer effect. Apply some mascara on those lashes, and create length and volume.
Finish off your eyes by defining your brows and filling them in with a pencil or a dip brow pomade (this will be a better option if you’re going for fuller brows). Deepika’s brows are on fleek with this look!
