Deepa Berar Toronto Fashion Week

 

It’s that time again, World Mastercard Fashion Week has taken over the city! I was invited to the Pink Tartan show (one of my absolute fav designers from Toronto) and got to talk with the lead stylists from Redken, Maybelline & Essie to see what went into the looks for Pink Tartan and find out what the trends are in hair, makeup & nails for Sring/Summer ’15.

 

My friend Caramia (from Bella Trois) and I vlogged the night and will post the video soon. In the meantime here’s what I wore-

Black leather peplum top- Forever 21

Black leather leggings- American Apparel

Black stiletto booties- Mango

Bag- Mango

Coat- Marc by Marc Jacobs

 

Deepa fashion week

 

We totally got pampered when we were there as the Redken team styled our hair for the night. Lucky girl having 2 artists working on me at the same time! Totally felt like a little celeb haha.

Here’s the after. Love it and am totally in love with the Powder Grip Texturizing hair powder. Gives you tons of volume at the roots (my neverending quest in life- to have some lift at the roots).

Did you check out any of the shows? Who’s your fav designer?

What I Wore: Black Sari

black sari 2

 

On this week’s episode of Eye on Asia I wore one of my all time fav looks, a Black sari. There’s always been a bit of confusion as to where/when you can wear a black sari. As tradition dictates you shouldn’t wear it to any wedding functions, but I think in this day pretty much anything goes. If you are in doubt, go for a black sari that has a lot of work on it.

For the jewelry I wore gold earrings with read & green in it which went perfectly with the red & green border on the sari.

 

For the makeup I wore:

Eyes- Tamanna palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills

Lid- Gilded

Crease- Sangria, Bengal & Noir

Lips- Riri Woo by MAC

What I Wore: Traditional Punjabi style Salwar Kameez

deepa berar punjabi salwar kameez

 

For this week’s episode of Eye on Asia I wore a yellow & blue traditional punjabi style Salwar Kameez. Now normally I’m more of a sari/anarkali type of girl, but it’s fun to wear a throwback style every now and then and mix things up! The thing I like about this suit is the multi colored bling, makes it a little more modern and fun :)

 

yellow and blue churian

 

For the churian I mixed a matching yellow and blue set and used two ends with long blue jems on them.

The makeup I used was:

Eyes- MAC’s Orb, Soft Brown & Embark

Blacktrack Fluidline

Anastasia Dipbrow in Dark brown on the brows

Face- Illamasqua Skin base

Anastasia contour kit

Cheeks- MAC Hipness blush

Lips- MAC Please me mixed with Chatterbox

 

What’s your favorite type of suit to wear & why? Let us know in the comments!

What I wore: Fuchsia Sari

fuchsia sari

 

Ok so this is absolutely one of my fav saris I own for one simple fact- the fabric. It is georgette silk and drapes your body so nicely and more importantly it’s such a smooth fabric that you virtually never have to iron it. I mean who wouldn’t want that right?!

 

fuchsia sari 2

 

I had to share a shot of my hair. I curled it using my Nume Reverse curling wand (I’ll be posting this tutorial soon- it’s inspired by Sonam Kapoor’s hair in Khoobsurat) and I love how this wand gives you a uniform curl throughout. Tough to do with a regular wand.

 

fuchsia sari 3

 

The bangles I wanted to keep it fuchsia & gold but love crystal so added the gold & crystal churian to both ends.

For the makeup, most of you know that I don’t ever just wear one lip color (sorry, tough habit to change- I’ve been mixing my own colors for as long as I can remember and am on this never ending quest to find the perfect lip shade..hasn’t happened yet!) so I used MAC’s Brick-o-la, Blankety & Viva Glam Nikki. Totally loving this combo. For the eyes I used the Anastasia Maya Mia palette.

 

What’s your fav sari fabric? I’d love to know!

What I wore: Simple summer suits

Deepa Summer suit

 

It’s the last few weeks of summer and that means goodbye to lightweight fabrics, soft colors and not having to grab a jacket when you leave the house.

 

Deepa Berar summer suit

 

I wore this suit recently on an episode of Eye on Asia. I like the colors in it, super soft and pretty. For the makeup I used the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette.

 

Deepa bangles

 

Who else is a fan of the midi ring? Can’t get enough of them. That one is from Forever 21. The other rings are from Aldo and the bangles are from India.

 

What I wore: Red and White Anarkali suit

Deepa Berar red suit 2

 

A couple weeks ago I attended a Sangeet party for Reet (you’ll remember her from the bridal shower post I did). A Sangeet party is basically a night where all the ladies get together and sing songs as a pre-celebration to the wedding. There’s a little more to it than that but I won’t get into the history of Indian weddings & traditions, I mean this is supposed to be a fun makeup blog after all, right?!

Deepa Berar red suit

 

#selfie. lol. I wore this red and white anarkali suit we got from India. I know it might seem odd to wear full sleeves in summer, but with the sleeves being lace, it was totally fine.

 

Deepa Berar Riri woo lipstick

 

Ok so my red lipstick obsession of the moment is MAC’s Riri Woo. Riri Woo is from the Rihanna collection she did for MAC back in Fall of last year. The color is basically MAC’s Russian Red if it were super matte. I absolutely love this color, it is totally classic red.

 

Reets Sangeet

 

Here are all the ladies with Reet in the center. I love her crop top lengha. I mean this whole meshing of Western & Eastern fashion is just so much fun! Congratulations Reet & Bin!!

Get ready with me: Fuchsia sari

Saturday, July 5, 2014 4 0

Here is my first ever “Get ready with me” video!! In it I’m wearing a fuchsia sari I got from India and some pretty accessories. I hosted Chin International picnic last week at the CNE in Toronto and decided to record the makeup, hair & outfit for the look I wore.

 

I’ve always wanted to do one of these videos, so if you like them please let me know and I will record more. I will have the look for day 2 up in the next couple weeks.

 

 

Oh also, I would LOVE to post for you more often, it is so much fun for me and I get such great feedback from you, but in order for me to do so I need you to please SHARE, SHARE, SHARE my blog & youtube channel with your friends. Thanks a bunch, xo

 

What I wore: Summer Fringe top

patio summer fringe

 

I don’t know about you but I am not very good at pulling off the boho chic look. Although I love how it looks on other people, for some reason it just doesn’t tend to suit me. That’s why I was pleasantly surprised when I found this fringe top. At Winner’s of all places!

 

patio outfit

 

That’s another thing that shocked me. I am not good at shopping at Winner’s. I know a ton of girls who love going in every week and hunting down good deals and they find the best things but I get overwhelmed and anxious and last probably 5 mins tops before I’m out. This was a rare find and boy am I glad I went!

 

patio shoes

 

How amazing are these shoes?? To die. There is no such thing as less than 4 inches.

What summer trends are you rockin?

 

What I wore: Crop top dress

Thursday, June 26, 2014 0 0

Like I mentioned in my 7 summer must haves post, I am in love with the whole crop top/skirt look these days. It’s a modern alternative to the bodycon dress and I love how you can pull off so many different color combos with it.

A few of you messaged me about the dress I wore to the Shenae Grimes event, it was the Crop Skater dress from TopShop.

Now if you have a relatively flat stomach, amazing, you can pull off the look no problem. I on the other hand do not, so that’s why I was so excited to find this dress from TopShop because it’s actually all one piece!

Under the top it connects to the skirt bottom and I love how the A line skirt part flares away from the body.
