Let’s talk about those eyes: Deepika Padukone’s green play and what experts think of it

Move over Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s purple lip, because Deepika Padukone’s jewel-toned green eyes are making all the noise. Here’s what beauty experts think of her look.

For her second appearance at the 70th edition of the ongoing Cannes Film Festival, Deepika Padukone decided to have some fun. Dressed in a Grecian, custom-made dress by designer Brandon Maxwell, the look was topped with a high-set bun, a neutral lip and dramatic jewel-toned eyes.

Cannes is no MET Gala, so the sartorial and beauty looks usually fall under the ‘safe’ bracket. But, like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s purple lip last year, Dippy decided to make some makeup noise with the bold eye.

Experts think Deepika pulled the look off. “It’s a look which might have been done to death for fashion shows — a pulled-out shadow in emerald green. But, I personally think it’s bold to do it off the runway, and Deepika was bold enough to carry it with aplomb. The look can be done in any colour,” says beauty expert Ambika Pillai.

Makeup expert Vidya Tikari says: “Rather than a smokey eye, I’d call it an out-swept extension. For me...I love the look! Also, even though it ‘s dramatic, it is completely do-able. People are going beyond the norm, breaking boundaries..so I think this totally works. Also, emerald is the colour of the season, so I think it is a lovely choice.”
