Sunday Feature: You Go Girl! Featuring Makeup Guru & YouTuber Deepa Berar!

I haven't done a feature in a while but I'm back with a good one!

Every Sunday I feature a blogger, artist, photographer, makeup artist, actress, socialite or all around awesome person on my blog in a feature I like to call "You Go Girl!" or in some cases "You Go Boy!".

This week Ill be featuring makeup artist, YouTube guru and blogger Deepa Berar!
I've been watching Deepa's videos for a while now and always loved the way she filmed her tutorials especially being a South Asian girl I could relate to, so you can imagine my excitement when I found her blog! She has been a total sweetheart since we first started exchanging tweets and emails and I'm so happy to be able to introduce all of you to one of my favs!

Read all about Deepa's favourite beauty items, her industry influences and what's in store for the future.


Who is Deepa Berar and why are you so fabulous?
Haha. I don't know if fabulous is the word, I'm just your average Canadian born Indian girl with a serious love of makeup and all things girly.

Where can we find you on the world wide web?
I'm everywhere!! You can read my blog at, watch my makeup tutorials at, follow me on Twitter for makeup tips and check out my Facebook page under "Deepa Berar makeup artist". 

My top 3 must have beauty items are?
Ooh, I love this question Farah! I never leave home without my Lash Blast mascara by Cover Girl. It gives you the fullest lashes out of any mascara that I've tried. I love kohl eyeliner and MAC studio finish concealer to cover those dark circles.

You're in a huge rush, what one beauty product do you grab?
Definitely has to be mascara. It is the one beauty item I won't go without. I have long lashes but not a lot of them so without mascara my lashes are basically non existent.

How did you get your start in the beauty industry?
Well I have loved makeup since I was a little girl and had been applying it on myself ad friends for so long but when I wanted to get serious about it I decided to go to makeup school to get comfortable with different skin tones and types. A week after was school was finished, I went to a bunch of different MAC counters and applied. As luck would have it they were actually hiring for a new location they were opening up and I got in there.

Who would you say have been your favorite celeb or high profile clients? 
It has to be Leslie Stewart from the CH News & Ti-cats. She is so funny, all we do is laugh the whole time she's in my chair!

Are there any makeup or beauty faux pas you really cant stand?
Well I don't really like to say that something is right or wrong, makeup is art and therefore subjective, but if I had to pick one thing it would be heavy, visible foundation. I'm all for natural, healthy looking skin and I believe it is possible to get that natural flawless look even on the worst skin. It just takes the right products and more importantly, the right tools to apply them.

Do you have a favorite beauty guru/mentor?
I love the magic that Kevin Aucoin used to create. His work will live on forever. He is a true legend.

Favorite foundation, lipstick & mascara?
I normally use MAC Face & Body foundation, but I am really loving the Make Up For Ever HD Invisible foundation right now. It covers really well and looks so natural. Mascara would definitely be Lash Blast by Cover Girl. My favorite lipstick color is always changing! At the moment I'm in love with a limited color that was released by MAC a little while back, it's called Saint Germain. It's kinda like MAC's Snob, but brighter. I don't ever wear just one color though, I'm always mixing lip liners, lipsticks and glosses to come up with the shade I'm looking for!

What can people expect from Deepa Berar in the future?
More makeup tutorials for sure! I'm in love with both Hollywood and Bollywood so I'll feature looks based on both. I'm also the beauty expert for CityTV's "Eye On Asia" (a South Asian TV show) so expect to see more segments from me in the future. And lots, lots more, I'm just getting warmed up here.

Any last words or advice on beauty?
Makeup is meant to be fun! Play, have fun with it and don't take it too seriously. After all, it washes off at the end of the day :)

Thank you so much Deepa for taking the time to chat with me. Not only is she beautiful and talented she's super nice too! If  you haven't already seen her blog and YouTube channel head on over you wont be disappointed.
Pin It!
