Channel old-world glam with soft, blurry lips like Sonam Kapoor Ahuja

Sonam Kapoor Ahuja has cornered the market in the experimental and edgy beauty game. Whether she is in ethnic clothes or athleisure or in a chic fusion outfit, her makeup is carefully done to complement the look.

You all have fond memories of dipping into your mother’s wardrobes and fishing out clothes and jewellery to create new looks, right? And when the stars do it, it’s even more aww-some!  The diva recently was seen in a Good Earth golden lehenga, which she wore with her mother’s jewels. What took our breath away was the old-world glam she channelled with her makeup.

Oh, how we love this look! Soft, blurry lips, dark eyeshadow only on the lower lash line and textured, centre-parted hair. It perfectly pairs with the old-timey silhouette of the blouse and the gorgeous vintage jewellery she is wearing.


Here is what you need to keep in mind to get a similar look:

For the lips:

Sonam has given defined lips a miss and instead opted for soft, blurry berry lips. To get a similar look, start by using a lip primer all over your lips. Then use a berry lip liner like Lakmé Absolute Forever Silk Lip Liner in Merlot and fill in your lips. Next, apply a lipstick like Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color in Soaked Berries over the liner. Use a tissue to dab away the excess lip colour and use your finger to blur the edges.

For the eyes:

The interesting thing about Sonam’s eye makeup is the fact that she has used dark eyeshadow only on the lower lash line, thus giving out very retro-feels. Prep your eye lids by using an eye shadow primer all across your lids. Use light shimmery beige from the Lakmé 9to5 Eye Quartet in Silk Route on the entire upper eye lid. Use a dark brown or black eyeshadow from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Gold and line your lower lash line with it. Tightline both your upper and lower lash lines with Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal. Finish with a few coats of Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara.
