Step by Step eye makeup tutorial:

Step 1:  start by priming your eyelids because you are gonna dance and have fun so you want your makeup  to stay on. And highlight your brow bone using a beige shimmer shade ( MAC ricepaper used)

Step 2: take a brown shade that is 2 to 3 shades darker than your skin tone and apply it all over your eyelid with a flat shader brush (MAC 233)

Step 3: now with a fluffy angled brush (MAC 275) take a matte dark brown colour and place it in the outer V and crease and blend it well

Step 4: now with a big fluffy brush (real techniques setting brush) take a peachy brown light matte colour and blend the crease colour seamlessly using it as a transition shade, blend well as per your satisfaction

Step 5: with all this blending  the lid colour might have withered off so this time again take the same colour used on the lid previously but this time with a wet brush to make the colour stand out more

Step 6: line and smudge your lower lash line with a brown liner very lightly. Create a small flick or cat eye on the outer part of your eyes close to the lash line to add an arch to your eye shape (keep the liner to the outer 1/4th only)

Step 7: curl your lashes using an eyelash curler

Step 8: grab your favourite mascara and add generous coats of it. I used benefit they are real mascara (usually this mascara is great but don’t know what happened..something went wrong with my lashes this time )

Step 9: And thats how your eye makeup should look now

For the lips: deepika seems to to have a muted coral pink shade in the movie so I mixed mac relentlessly red with mac taupe over it.

For the face: Basic foundation and concealer situation here like normal people. Deepika had a glowy healthy face so I used a dewy finish foundation mac face and body and set it with the mac studio  fix powder foundation

Then I contoured my cheeks and my nose to have some sharpness like deepika (don’t know why the camera didn’t catch the contouring well) I used mac folie to contour , any matte bronzer can be used or a warm toned matte brown eyeshadow.

Then highlighted the bridge of my nose with a lighter concealer (becca cosmetics compact concealer)

For blush I used a coral blush (stila harmony)

To highlight the high points of my cheek and tip of my nose is used the Revlon skin lights in bare light to add a subtle glow..
