Deepika Best Lipstick Red Carpet Moments Ever Big

Deepika Padukone is having her moment. After basking in the grand success of ‘Padmavat’, a she has also created ripples across the Atlantic. If you have forgotten her international fame, then you are living under a rock. Just to give you a refresher, it started in 2016 when she shared the big screen with Vin Diesel in ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’. What followed was her red carpet conquest, front row appearances at some high profile fashion shows and slaying it at some star-spangled Hollywood parties.

She also took over Cannes film festival, shot for Vanity Fair magazine, indulged in a playful banter with Ellen DeGeneres and gave us enough reasons to celebrate when she decided to marry Bollywood's enfant terrible - Ranveer Singh.

But we will all agree to the fact that her beauty looks have been nothing but impeccable, throughout.The master strokes by some of the leading makeup maestros showed up in the form of neatly done winged eyeliners, on-fleek contouring and above all her dramatic, yet mature choice of lip shades. From the decadent tones of red and burgundy to the sexiest of nudes, Deepika ’s playful canvass of lipsticks surely was a great add-on to her winning red carpet looks.

Here a few times when Deepika’s lips were more than perfect -

Bold Berry 


Recently Deepika joined the league of ‘Quantico’ star Priyanka Chopra and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. She made it to the list of Times 100 most influential people in 2018. And to attend the red carpet gala in New York city, she posed her confidence in an ethereal white, dramatic saree drape by Anamika Khanna. With simple smoky eyes and a dash of bold berry on lips, she completed her look.  Ladies with dusky skin tone take cues. Burgundy is can be a #MVP in your beauty drawer.-

From Priyanka Chopra to Pooja Hegde, our bevy of Bollywood beauties have posed their confidence on this dark, decadent hue time and again. Deepika Padukone known for her brave makeup choices has also worn different tones of this hue repetitively but every time she somehow manages to whip up an interesting look.



The question, how many nude-hued lip shades can one have, doesn’t really hold relevance for a hoarder of cosmetic products. Nude lip shades are available in a variety of textures and tones. Therefore picking each one of them can easily be approved.  This glossy nude shade on Deepika complimented the dark moss green gown by New York-based designer, Brandon Maxwell. Cues for you? Try and pair pieces in dark colours against nude tones of lip shades.



After tones of burgundies and nudes, plum seems to be an obvious choice. While we track Deepika’s lipstick trail, plum seems to be a welcome choice. For those of you who want to veer away from reds and still want to try something playful while at work, this fruity tone is your best option. We can also imagine it invading your formal wardrobe. 

Matte Red

From Marilyn Monroe to Kim Kardashian, classic reds have come to define ‘sexy’ on the red carpet for decades. And Deepika seems to follow suit of some of the biggest stars out there. At the Mexican premiere of her international debut ‘‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ she slipped into a black peplum top and flared pair of trousers, to top it over she applied a dash of matte red lip shade. That was perfection to the 't'.



Yes, it might across as an unusual choice given Deepika’s skin tone but orange, if picked up the right kind can certainly add character to your look. Veer away from lighter tones and inch towards darker ones, more like tangerines. With the searing sun, pull out those breezy, floral, bohemian pieces in yellows and greens and contrast them against rich orange-hued lip shades.
