When you re blessed with the radiant skin and silky tresses that Deepika Padukone has, it may seem all too easy to succumb to the allure of tried-and-tested beauty staples. But being the perfectionist that she is, the dimpled 34-year-old insisted on rewriting the beauty rulebook all through 2017. With the business end of the party season staring us squarely in the face, some makeup inspiration never goes amiss. If you d like to change what you look at in the mirror daily, channel some of Padukone s never-say-die spirit and give your beauty kit free reign.
After a quiet 2016 at the box office, it s been a busy 2017 for the globe-trotting superstar. The year started out with a bang with the release of her Hollywood debut, xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017), followed by her debut appearance at the Met Gala on the arm of Tommy Hilfiger. She moved on to take her beauty savvy to the Cannes red carpet, finishing with the promotions of her historical epic, Padmavati, now slated to release next year. Through it all, she continued our beauty education, bravely setting trends on international carpets while maintaining her fidelity when off-duty to her comfort classics a severe bun and siren red pout. We tracked all her hair and makeup looks during the year, and here s what her graph looks like.
The global release of her Hollywood debut opposite Vin Diesel in January had Padukone putting her beauty kit through the works, sporting everything from smoky mauve eyes to a dab of translucent shimmer on her lids. Never one to get too cosy in her comfort zone, the Beijing premiere of the movie had her experimenting with a chic chignon, while the Golden Globe Awards 2017 brought the diva-approved retro waves.
She kept the good news going in the first half of 2017 by treating her locks to a caramel colour job, styled consistently in easy waves. When the occasion called for it, she combed back her streaked mane as the perfect copout for those who aren t a fan of the kinks that a ponytail holder leaves behind. A razor-sharp winged eye remained her weapon of choice all through summer, with occasional exceptions made for soft nudes masquerading as the no-makeup makeup look.
Padukone booked a berth in the international spotlight again for the annual Met Gala in May. For her debut stroll down the star-studded blue carpet, she opted for her signature nude lips and winged eye, allowing her metallic hair embellishments to have their time in the spotlight. Her busy itinerary whisked her to the French Riviera two weeks later for the annual Cannes Film Festival. In the space of 48 hours, the stunner paraded a braided top bun, vampire red matte lips and mermaid-themed aqua eyes.
Back on the home front, she championed sleek hair and low buns when off duty, but kicked off the Padmavati promotions in October with voluminous waves and a mean contouring job. Channeling her inner alpha queen, she has opted for a dignified slew of slicked back hair and textured buns since. Her expressive peepers continued their love affair with the statement winged eyeliner in November, with matte nude lips bringing to life her vision of modern-day royalty. For a recent red carpet event, her locks spent some time under a texturising volume spray, while her glowing face received minimal assistance from power brows and a light lining of kohl.
