Sonakshi Sinha recently performed at the much-talked about Global Citizen Festival in Mumbai last weekend. And we’ve got to say the girl really did impress us with her makeup look replete with matte skin and her signature cat eyes. Wondering how you can get this look yourself? Here’s a step by step guide...

Base

Sonakshi is blessed with gorgeous skin. But for the concert, she opted for a matte visage—one that made her skin look all the more flawless. For base makeup like hers, you need to use the Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse once you’ve used a primer. This will help keep the foundation in place for hours. Make sure you blend the foundation perfectly to avoid any uneven patches on the skin. Set the foundation with the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet & Dry Compact.

Eyebrows

For perfectly arched eyebrows like Sona, you must rely on the ever useful Lakmé Eyebrow Pencil that will help fill in the scanty patches.

Eyes

Sona did her signature cat eyes for this one and boy, did it work wonders. Make sure you get your hands on the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Artist Eye Liner for this one. The wing should be long enough to look dramatic. Once the eyeliner dries, use the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara for those dreamy lashes. Post the mascara application, use the silver from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette (Silver) and apply it in the inner corners of your eyes to make your peepers pop.

Cheeks

Sonakshi’s cheeks are subtly rosy and to get that slight pop of colour on your cheeks, apply the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Shimmer Brick in Pink on the apples of your cheeks. Make sure you blend well using a blush brush.

Lips

Sonakshi’s given her lips a poppy matte pink colour, which does wonders to her skin tone. You can go for the Lakmé Absolute Sculpt Studio Matte Lipstick in Pink Flash for that hint of fuchsia on your lips.
