Deepa Berar Birthday vlog


In case you missed my big secret video, I talk all about my thoughts on turning the big 4-0. Yup, you read it right. Before you get all “woahhh 40??”, let me just say I couldn’t be more excited. Aging is a privilege denied to many as the saying goes and it’s the way I choose to approach each birthday.

Anyways, the girls and I all headed down to Niagara for the weekend. It’s less than an hour away from where I live in Burlington, and I absolutely love going down there. It feels like you went away even though you’re basically in your own backyard.


We started off the festivities checking into a hotel across the street from the Fallsview casino which is super close to the actual falls. We then headed out on a wine tour of a few vineyards in Niagara on the Lake which is like the cutest little community ever. I mean the walking street is always bombarded with tourists from all over the world. It’s def a place to visit if you guys ever get the chance.

We then headed back to the hotel to freshen up and then off to dinner- Mexican of course! So yummy :)

After that was the Casino for some drinks and people watching. There was a cute little dance floor and they had a cover band doing all sorts of really fun songs that everyone knows. I had a blast.


The next morning we went to my fav diner- Famous Cafe. I had a breakfast burrito of course. Then off to see the Falls, because no Niagara trip is complete without a glimpse.


That’s it! Here’s the vlog for you all to watch:

how to deal with haters

New video up for you guys! This one talks all about how to deal with haters. Hate can exist anywhere, I know a lot of us that put ourselves online will probably face it more than others, we all know how people love to hide behind their computers and attack *sigh. That doesn’t mean other people in different industries don’t face it. Hate exists everywhere and I find it’s due in part to people being just so unhappy with their own lives.


So  I put together a couple of my top tips to help you deal with hate. I know some of you might not agree with my approach, but hey, I just try to live my life in line with that awesome saying:

how to be confident

New Deep Beauty video is up! This one breaks down some tools you can utilize on how to be confident.


Before I share the vid I want to address something with you guys. I know I’ve been MIA from the blog. But. I promise you it’s for a good reason. For one thing I’ve had a crazy busy June with work. Literally working pretty much every day from 4am till 7pm. Crazy I know.


I have another week or so to go, but once that passes I’ll be back at it. I promise you I’m not abandoning the blog, I love it way too much to quit! The other reason is, well, I’ve decided to put a little more effort into the YouTube channel. I’ve been working with someone very special, you might have heard me mention her before- Lauryn Evarts from The Skinny Confidential.


She is the coolest chick ever. So sweet and down to earth and total mogul in the making. Anyways she’s been like a mentor to me and we decided that for me to get my Deep Beauty message out and help as many women as possible, I should focus on the YouTube for a bit.


Just wanted to be honest with you guys as you have all been nothing short of supportive of me. Plus it’s good to take a break every now and then, helps you recharge and come back with better ideas and a ton more energy!


Ok now that that’s out of the way, I have your 2nd Deep Beauty video! This one is all about how to grow your self confidence. Let me know if you have any topics you want me to cover!

My day at GenBeauty Toronto!

Thursday, June 2, 2016 2 3

Genbeauty Toronto 2016


A couple of weeks ago IPSY, the beauty company founded by the biggest beauty Youtuber ever, Michelle Phan, had their makeup show GenBeauty in Toronto and I was fortunate enough to attend! As I’ve told you guys before, I’m a member of IPSYOS which is IPSY’s organization for beauty gurus. They have their studios in Santa Monica which I shot a few of my videos at. Anyways I was so excited that they were coming to Toronto as it was their first show in Canada!


Genbeauty Toronto Ipsy Stylists


Most of the IPSY Stylists were there! We got to see my favs- Desi, Chrisspy & Christen Dominique! I got to chat with Christen at the show for a bit. She really is one of the sweetest girls ever. She was telling me about her upcoming travels and how she juggles everything with being a mom. What an inspiration :)


Genbeauty Toronto Christen Dominique


I also got to chat with Michelle Phan’s right hand man, Corey Weiss. Corey is so amazing, I’ve met him before at the Santa Monica studios. He runs this giant company yet is so humble and down to earth! He was so good to me and really made sure I was well taken care of at GenBeauty. Such a great guy.


Genbeauty Toronto Corey Weiss


To say that there were tons of makeup booths is an understatement. Virtually every brand you would want to see was there! They were pretty much all doing giveaways and we got to preview a bunch of products that are about to come out. Being an IPSYOS member I got to meet and chat with a bunch of the PR reps as well. Everyone is always so lovely at these events.


Genbeauty Toronto makeup booths


I was invited to the Cocktail party IPSY was throwing after the show on Saturday. Everyone was there! Desi, Chrisspy and even Katie showed up a little later. It was held at The Fifth Social club in Toronto, which I’ve been to several times, but this was definitely my fav time there. I got to chat with Chrisspy for a bit. She is humble and so approachable. I had to compliment her on her crazy makeup skills. That girls eyeshadow is always so beautifully blended, she definitely inspires me as an artist!


Genbeauty Toronto Chrisspy


I put together a short video of the day for you guys. Remember I was telling you about that event I attended in Toronto with Inglot and DubDub? I edited this using the dubdub app on my phone and seriously, it is quickly becoming one of my fave editing apps! It’s sooo easy to use. Anyways, here’s the vid!


Best of the Billboard 2016 beauty looks

billboard 2016 beauty


Did you guys catch the Billboard music awards last night? Ok I was kinda bad and only tuned in for like a minute to see our girl Priyanka Chopra announce an award, what can I say, life happens and I was at a birthday party for my cousin’s son. Also Superbad was on and I can never pass up an opportunity to watch. One of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen, I swear I’m dying ever time!!


Anyways, all of that didn’t stop me from tuning in to watch the celebs kill it on the red carpet! Loved a bunch of the looks last night, mostly the smokey eyed ones, seems to be very on trend at the moment. As usual, I have your best Billboard 2016 beauty looks :)


billboard 2016 britney spears


First off we’re gonna talk about the queen of course, all hail Britney. I know some of you might not agree with me on this one, but I LOVED the throwback lip. Very Laguna beach circa 2005, you remember, back when everyone was wearing Myth lipstick from MAC? What can I say, I’m a sucker for a good throwback!


Britney’s MUA used Surratt Moderniste lip pencil and YSL Rouge Pur Couture in #10 on her lips.


billboard 2016 demi lovato


On to one of my fav celebs, Demi Lovato. Love, love, love her message about self confidence and loving yourself as you are right now. So refreshing. Also LOVE her smokey eye/nude lip combo, swear this look is so big right now. So rocker glam.


You can use YSL’s Kajal in black, smudged around the eyes to recreate the look.


billboard 2016 lucy hale


Pretty Little Liar’s Lucy Hale rocked the look as well, although her lip was a little less nude and a little more natural, still looked amazing. Have you ever noticed how nice kajal rimmed eyes looks on people with that darker ring around their iris? Just makes their eyes pop even more.


Use MAC shadow palette in Purple to recreate Lucy’s soft smokey eye.


billboard 2016 rihanna


Not a huge fan of Rihanna’s hair at the awards show, but her makeup was on point. Really though, she has some of the most gorgeous eyes I’ve ever seen that she can pull off pretty much any look.


Use a soft fluffy brush like MAC #217 and NARS Albatross to recreate that gorgeous inner eye highlight Rihanna has. While you’re at it, add some to the top of your cheekbones to brighten.


billboard 2016 gwen stefani


Ok I had to add this last one, not because of the actual makeup, but because of the message. Gwen Stefani wore a totally different look than she usually does. Gone was the signature cat eye liner and red lip, instead she had very bronzed skin, bronze eyes and a nude lip. So glad she is experimenting. We can all fall into patterns of loving a certain look (myself included) but it’s fun to experiment and play! It keeps life fun and fresh and is a great message for yourself internally because it detaches you from correlating self esteem with looking a certain way. Makeup is meant to be fun, it’s not meant to mask the world from seeing the true you.

kareena kapoor hair style ki and ka


Who else is obsessed with Kareena Kapoor’s hair in the film Ki & Ka? The cute mid ponytail is the perfect look for day old curled hair. Looks like you put a ton of effort into your hairstyle but it’s really just some strategic teasing & pinning ;)


Here’s how to recreate this look!



Need some Motivation? Follow these Inspirational Youtube Channels!

Thursday, May 12, 2016 0 0


Hellooo people! How’s everyone doing today? So I started writing this blog post and I realized, I’ve written a post very similar to this before. So for a moment I had to laugh at myself. Then I thought, well why is this message so important that I felt the need to share it again? Then it struck me. You see I have this ritual I go through whenever I feel low in motivation (which I’ve been kinda going through lately) and it always helps me and I thought if I shared it and helped even one of you, then that would be amazing!


So what’s this ritual you ask? Watching inspirational youtube channels! Honestly guys the best thing you can do for yourself is first thing in the morning, before the craziness begins, watch one of these guys’ videos. Do that one thing and you are setting yourself up for one amazing day. Here’s my list:


Jesse Brisendine.

Jesse is my life coach and an unbelievable guy. I can’t even begin to tell you how indebted to this man I am. He changed my whole life. There is no denying that self love is the most important thing to develop if you want to achieve your best in life. Check out this awesome video!


Robin Sharma.

The thing I love about Robin’s videos is that he has this list of action items you can put into practice. Honestly tho. While all the rah rah can be great and lift you up, it’s the habits you develop that change your life. Action items.



ET The hip hop preacher.

This guy is the BEST. Love ET. I have no idea where he gets all his energy from but it is sooo infectious. It’s virtually impossible to watch one of his videos and not get pumped.



Gary Vaynerchuk.

If you are an entrepreneur or aspiring entrepreneur, you’ll want to load up on this man’s videos. His message? If you want something, you’re gonna have to work for it. Plain and simple.



I’ll also look up Tony Robbins videos and I just stumbled upon Tai Lopez. Great stuff. Do you guys follow any inspirational channels? Share with me! I’d love to sub to some more :)


Oh and are any of you going to be at Gen Beauty in Toronto this weekend? If so, let’s meet up!
