From skincare to make-up tips, Deepika Padukone reveals her beauty secrets

Deepika Padukone on her favourite feature to highlight, hair care secrets and signature fragrance

What are your vanity kit essentials?
Everything is essential – from a day cream to a night cream to a SPF to a deodorant and perfume.

Your skincare routine
I don’t follow any routine as such. I just make sure I use a good night cream and always take off my make-up.

Your favourite hair care products
There’s nothing better than oiling your hair.

Your go to look for a red carpet event
I am always a lip person. I am someone who prefers keeping the skin clean and enhancing the mouth.

What do you think is sexy, beauty-wise?
I think less is more.

Are you good at doing your own make-up and any tips you’ve taken from beauty artists?
I never do my own make-up. I’ve never needed to do my own, always had a professional. I know a lot of girls do and they do a really good job. If I have to shoot for a scene I’d rather focus on the scene, I couldn’t be bothered about the make-up.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve tried in the name of beauty?
I remember for a Sabyasachi show once when I was a model we had to wear like buck teeth. It was cute but bizarre at that point.

Do you have a signature fragrance?
Diptyque is my favourite.

Do you gravitate toward a lip colour and if so, which shade?
I like nudes and reds.

What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever received?
Less is more.

The one beauty product you can’t live without?
An SPF product.
