We always see actor Deepika Padukone in a glamorous avatar. Blessed with a good skin and great features, Deepika doesn’t need layers of makeup.

A hint of lip gloss or lipstick with subtle eye makeup works well for her.
It is difficult to catch Deepika in a de-glam look. She wears a light makeup to brighten up her face, even while travelling. However, we dug deep and found her pictures without makeup.

Padukone, the daughter of the badminton player Prakash Padukone, was born in Copenhagen and raised in Bangalore. As a teenager she played badminton in national level championships, but left her career in the sport to become a fashion model.

She soon received offers for film roles, and made her acting debut in 2006 as the title character of the Kannada film Aishwarya. Padukone then played a dual role in her first Bollywood release—the 2007 blockbuster Om Shanti Om—and won a Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut.

Padukone received praise for portraying the lead roles in the romance Love Aaj Kal (2009) and the drama Lafangey Parindey (2010), but her performances in the romance Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008) and the comedy Housefull (2010) were met with negative reviews.

The 2012 box office hit Cocktail marked a turning point in Padukone’s career, earning her praise and Best Actress nominations at several award ceremonies.

She rose to prominence with starring roles in the comedies Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013), Chennai Express (2013), and Happy New Year (2014), and the historical romance Bajirao Mastani (2015), all of which rank among the highest-grossing Bollywood films.

 

Padukone’s acclaimed portrayal of a character based on Juliet in the tragic romance Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela (2013) and a headstrong architect in the comedy-drama Piku (2015) won her two Best Actress awards at Filmfare.
