How To Wear Fall-Appropriate Make-Up Like Deepika
Deepika Padukone‘s hair in Cocktail convinced me that it was time to bid my flat iron goodbye. Till that point, my wavy locks had been subjected to intense agony, as I was frying them into submission so that they stuck to my head lifelessly (seriously though: how was that a flattering look on anybody?). So when I saw DP’s beautifully wavy hair billowing away in all its glory on the big screen, I decided then and there to embrace my natural texture and work on enhancing it instead. Naturally, Deepika is my go-to #hairspiration icon, so when I saw this picture of her in a Shehla Khan pantsuit during a promotional appearance for Tamasha, her crowning glory was FOMO-inducing all over again. That, followed by strong brows and fall-appropriate bordeaux lips and I was having a total fan-girl moment.
Hair like that is a shining example of the perfect blow-dry. To cop the look, you need to create some lift around the crown by spritzing a volumising spray like John Frieda Luxurious Volume Blow Dry Lotion to the roots before blow-drying them. Trying to get oversized out-curls like Deepika could possibly lead to fractured wrists, but you could definitely use a hair curler to achieve those lovely curled ends.
For bold brows, use a spoolie to brush your brows in place and fill them in with brow pencil or gel. Finish with a swipe of clear mascara to keep them in place. I also like how she has downplayed her eyes by keeping them bare and just using black mascara. I wonder if she’s wearing Chanel Rouge Noir on her lips and nails?
