Bajirao Mastani has hit the cinemas today and is definitely giving another much awaited film a run for its money. There are plenty of reasons this movie made to the news pre-release: the allure of the storyline, the director’s history, the real-life love story of the reel-life lovers, the Guinness World Record set for the largest gathering for an audio launch, and last but not the least, the no makeup policy on the sets.
Yes, that’s right. Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali demanded that the actors all adhere to a strict no makeup (or minimalist) policy in order to stay as true to the depiction of the era the movie is set in. Makeup was not in-vogue back in the 18th century and to reflect this the artists were requested to go “au naturel”.
Despite the comfort displayed by co-star Priyanka Chopra towards this rule (given that this is not the first time she’s going sans makeup), the leading lady, Deepika Padukone, expressed hesitance. We really don’t know what to say. With those spectacular genes, how could one really feel insecure? Well, whether or not our opinion matters on that subject, we know that us mere mortals absolutely want to try the refreshing look the lady carries as “Mastani” in the movie.
We found the perfect tutorial video for you ladies, and put together a step by step breakdown to achieving that flawless look:
This is optional but if you really want your face to have a natural glow and dewy look, massage some strobe cream onto your face before you begin.
Use a cream-based foundation that matches your skin tone, and buff it uniformly.
Use a concealer under your eyes and in your T-zone area, and buff this as well.
This again is optional, but you may contour your face to get the chiseled Deepika look. Remember to keep it minimal, though.
You may use a setting powder at this point and run the buff brush over your skin once more to ensure that your base is en point.
Go with a very delicate pink shade for the blush, and buff this out.
For the eye shadow, select a pair of natural browns that complement your complexion.
Eyebrows are an optional step. Deepika naturally has thick eyebrows, and if you feel the need to fill yours out a little, stick to short strokes. You may use a lash gel if you feel the need.
Use mascara on your upper lashes and a black eyeliner on the upper waterline.
For the lower waterline, use a nude eyeliner. Mascara for the lower lashes is optional.
Use a nude lip colour, preferably matte. Dab it on as little as possible to give it the natural effect.
And voila!!!! You are every bit as glamourous as Deepika herself.
