She rocked turquoise eye makeup with a fringe red dress and looked fiery! You too can make a chic style statement by adding a fun pop of color to your eyes. Here’s how you too can get the same look.
STEP 1: Before you start the makeup, cleanse, tone and moisturize your face. Use a primer and set the base. Use a foundation that matches your skin tone and apply it evenly all over your face and neck. Blend it well using a brush or a makeup sponge.
STEP 2: Since this makeup look focuses on the eyes, you need to get a flawless finish. Instead of a concealer, use an eye primer so as to keep the rest of the eye as natural as possible. Use your finger to apply the eye primer and blend it well.
STEP 3: Use highlighter to draw attention to the high points. Deepika Padukone has used the L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Powder Glow Neutral Illuminator Pink to get the look. Use the highlighter on the apples of the cheek, chin, cupid’s bow, center of your forehead and along the bridge of the nose. This will highlight your key features.
STEP 4: Along with your eye makeup, your eyebrows also need to look sharp and bold. Fill in the gaps in your eyebrow using an eyebrow pencil and then use a brow comb and brush the brow in the direction of the hair strands.
STEP 5: To get the perfect turquoise blue eye look, ditch the clichéd neutral shade of eye shadow and eye pencil. Deepika has used the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eye Liner True Teal for the same. To get the similar look, use a nude shimmer color across your lids first without going above the crease. Then use a thin liner brush to get the perfect cat eye makeup using the turquoise shade. Start applying from the inner corner with a thin stroke and then extend it into an exaggerated cat eye covering your whole eyelid. Also line your lower lash line with the same turquoise eye liner. Use a smudge proof liner so that your makeup stays put.
STEP 6: Now that you are done with the eye shadow, use a dash a volumizing mascara to finish your eye makeup. Deepika used the L’Oreal Paris Volume Mullion Lashes Extra Black for her Cannes look. Add multiple layers of mascara to get that bold lashes. You can also apply false eyelashes and then add a coat of mascara for some added drama!
STEP 7: Finish the look by applying a bold matte lipstick. Deepika used the L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte Lipstick in the shade of 232 Beige Couture. Apply it evenly all over your lips or use a brush to apply to get precision.
