Actress Deepika Padukone gave her fans quite a treat when she appeared for the TIME100 Impact awards recently. Dressed in a sequin sari, tying her hair in a bun, the actress looked absolutely radiant. Well, as for the man behind this mesmerizing look, it’s a French hairstylist and make-up expert Florian Hurel.
Hurel, who has done the hair and make up for many actresses such as Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra, says that they had a very clear goal this time. “We were looking at having makeup with definition yet in the brown space with a bit of contrast. We didn’t want to make it too out there. And kept chic,” he says.
Hurel adds that the fabulous sari that the actress picked to wear, also added a lot to how her makeup was done. “A look is about everything from outfit to makeup. The outfit does matter a lot on how you are going to accessorize it with the makeup and hair,” he says.
He also gives us an insight into how Deepika functions where her looks are concerned. “Deepika is involved in her looks and likes to let us create and come up with ideas. However, she does picture herself and wants the look to be always the best,” he says, adding, “I keep in mind details and finishing. It’s important to think that even the most common or basic makeup/hairdo should be detailed and signed by the artist.”
He has styled Deepika before as well and says that it’s always a different look for him. “The outfits always have different details and different shades. I don’t think I would ever be able to do the same makeup twice,” he says.
