We’ve all had front-row seats to witness Deepika Padukone’s transformation from safe to super. As her sartorial sense evolved, one thing stayed constant: the dialled down, minimal make-up. Here are top beauty looks by Deepika Padukone in recent times, and how you can recreate it:

DP’s look here is an ode to the ‘60s. Recreate this look with a simple nude lip and a flick eyeliner. A few recommended shades for this look are, Spice lip pencil by M.A.C., Trendsetter by Huda Beauty or the Sweet Honeymoon Nykaa Paintstix by Nykaa.
Going muted-rustic for the next night out? Give yourself a comparatively dominant eye, with a full-pigment brown eye-shadow, a soft line of kohl (on the upper and lower lash line) and a generous amount of mascara. Top eye-shadow picks? Kay Beauty’s Metallic Eyeshadow Stick in the shade Special Effects or the Maybelline New York’s The 24K Nudes Palette.
Slick your hair back, with a pronounced brow game. To achieve arched and full eyebrows like Deepika here, use the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Brow Pencil or the Benefit Goof Poof Eyebrow Pencil. Don’t forget to blend-out the extra with a spoolie brush!
You might want to indulge in false lashes here to achieve the optimal energy of this look. Draw out a dense and long wing through your eyelid. Align the wing with your eyebrow. Use the Gel Eye Liner by Stila  for this look, as it’s a dramatic eye. Knock back the look with a nude lip, light contour and little-none blush.
Deepika ‘plaid’ with earthy tones and a crisp bun here. A tip to enhance this look is to effortlessly slide a brown eye-shadow powder on the upper lash-line to define the area. Try the lip shade Taupe by M.A.C  to ace this look.
Go for a bare, au naturale look like DP for your next brunch. Mix your foundation with some Rose gold oil by Beauty.co for a healthy glow and apply a deep coat of  Velvet Teddy by M.A.C on the lips.
Huda Beauty’s Mauve Obsessions Palette is your best bet to achieve a bold eye with your chosen nude lip. To add an oomph factor to your eye-makeup, pop it with the Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder in the shade, Bronze Glow.
Try the ‘Nude Awakening’ by Wet n Wild for the sultry, sinful eye make-up mastered by Deepika here. Start with a brown smudgy pencil to achieve the appropriate effect and prevent fall-outs. The Revlon Eyeliner Pencil in the brown shade is the perfect tool. Set it with a brown, shimmery powder from the palette and you're good to go!
Go the extra mile with a liquid highlighter, Strobe and Glow by Nykaa in the shade Gold Mine and smudged black kohl for the water-line. Do a hard contour, as this look is extremely defined. Give yourself an extra 10 minutes to blend and achieve this stunning beauty look.
Wear a no-makeup-makeup look and go extra with your lashes here. Try the Roller-Lash mascara by Benefit to add the right amount of drama in your lashes. Achieve a flawless skin by Tarte’s Shape Tape concealer or Boing by Benefit.
