Listen up, makeup minimalists! Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s sparkly eye makeup is for all those who want to keep it subtle yet striking.
While Sonam is never the one to shy away from taking the OTT route when it comes to makeup, she recently sported a minimal makeup look that could easily pass off as a party look, especially for someone who doesn’t go overboard.
Even if you’re a makeup minimalist, you need that one element to add spark to your party makeup look. Because, to be honest, who wants to sport a fresh face makeup look or no-makeup makeup for an evening occasion?
To help you keep your makeup game subtle (just how you like it) yet glamorous, here’s a look you can try.
Follow the below step-by-step guide.
Step 01: Prep your skin for all the makeup that is to follow. The Lakmé Peach Milk Moisturiser SPF 24 PA++ can be your best bet in winters. Infused with the goodness of peaches and milk, this moisturiser will nourish your skin and lock in the moisture for up to 12 hours.
Step 02: Before you go in with your foundation, apply primer all over your face and neck. The Lakmé Absolute Under Cover Gel Face Primer will create the perfect canvas for your makeup and prevent it from melting.
Step 03: To play copycat to Sonam’s makeup look, reach for a matte foundation such as the Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse 16hr to create a base. It’s best to use a makeup sponge to apply foundation so that you get an even coverage and a smooth, flawless finish.
Step 04: To hide dark circles, blemishes and pigmentation, concealer is at your rescue. Use the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer SPF 25 to conceal problem areas and to brighten your skin tone.
Step 05: Now, lock your base makeup with the help of the Lakmé Radiance Complexion Compact. Dab the powder all over your face for a beautiful matte finish. We suggest you carry this product around for quick touch-ups as well as to reduce excess shine.
Step 06: Sonam’s kept her blush tone earthy. For a similar look, use the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Blush Shimmer Brick - In Pink. You can mix the brown hues together and apply it on your cheeks.
Step 07: Finish your face makeup by applying highlighter on the high points of your face. Use the Lakmé Absolute Highlighter - Moon-Lit on the top of your cheeks, brow bone, forehead, above the cupid’s bow and on the centre of your chin.
Eyes & Lips
Step 01: Start with your brows. Brush them using a spoolie and follow it up with an eyebrow pencil. You can use the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil to fill in the gaps and to add more definition.
Step 02: Get your hands on a shimmery eyeshadow palette such as the Lakmé 9 To 5 Eye Quartet Eyeshadow - Mystic Nudes. Use the light brown shimmer variant (on the top right) and cover your lids entirely with the hue. The shimmer will help spruce up your party makeup look.
Step 03: Now, reach for your liquid eyeliner and create super sleek even lines close to your upper lash line. The Lakmé Absolute Shine Liquid Eye Liner - Black will help you achieve the desired look with its ultra-thin applicator.
Step 04: Lastly, add some definition to your eye makeup with the help of mascara. Use the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Volumizing Mascara - Black for voluminous lashes.
Step 05: Being a makeup minimalist, you’d be happy to ditch the bold reds and bright pinks for a soft mauve lip shade. Use the Elle 18 Go Matte Lip Crayons - 03 Mauve Shot to complete your minimal glam party look.
