Deepika Padukone epitomises classic Indian beauty. That super slender body courtesy her athletic genes and a smooth dusky glow has been the star’s constant ever since she made her big on-screen debut opposite superstar Shah Rukh Khan in Om Shanti Om (2007). Right after, it was established that she’s here to stay, and reign.
After her big-ticket debut, she steadily earned her stripes with a diverse repertoire of roles, including a female cab driver in Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008), a visually challenged skater in Lafangey Parindey (2010) and a restoration architect in Love Aaj Kal (2009).

However, the needle of her career graph truly went into hyper-drive after the release of Cocktail (2012), with her portrayal of a headstrong party girl fetching her multiple Best Actress nominations. On the opposite end of the spectrum, she gave audiences a geeky girl to love in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013) before hitting box office gold with beau Ranveer Singh in Goliyon ki Rasleela Ram-Leela (2013). The duo teamed up again for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s epic period drama, Bajirao Mastani (2015) which went on to outdo their previous records. Hollywood came calling soon, and she made her Western debut this year opposite Vin Diesel in xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017). The leggy lass’ next release is the historic drama, Padmavati alongside Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.

Her meteoric rise in the industry has been coupled with a comprehensive understanding of what works for her, which has in turn, produced a slew of classic beauty looks. Let’s dive in, shall we?

Flip through Padukone’s beauty book over the years and you’ll notice her gradual journey to minimalist makeup. Her heavily bronzed base, shimmery lids and high-shine glossy lips from 2006 until 2010 were eventually edged out in favour of a soft, smooth matte look, classic cat-eye and a nude pucker. It was really in 2014 that the star started took to bold bright lipsticks in shades of scarlet, tangerine and pop pink. 2015, meanwhile, saw Padukone pairing her vibrant pout with elegant updos, soft waves and a clean natural face.

As her career kicked up pace, Padukone matched the tempo with textured ponytails, razor sharp winged liners and a mean contouring job providing that perfect pink flush. 2016 was the year that she gave her makeup artist Daniel Bauer free reign, and the actress showed up on the IIFA red carpet sporting everything from yesteryear updos to lean blowouts featuring her newly-acquired blonde highlights and bronzed cheekbones. The year also marked her big international debut, and she walked tall on the MTV EMAs 2016 red carpet with smoky eyes and a sleek ponytail to complement her studded Monisha Jaising ensemble.

When not in front of the camera, the 31-year-old religiously sticks to her winning formula of severe pulled back hair and staple red lipstick. Put her in front of the lens though, and her inner chameleon emerges, toting everything from teal smoky eyes on the Cannes carpet to mirror-shine sleek buns and a dewy glow.
