When you hear the term ‘fashionista’, who’s the first celebrity that comes to mind? Of course, it’s the stunning Sonam Kapoor Ahuja. Setting and redefining fashion and beauty goals, she is one actress who is fearless when it comes to her beauty choices, and we love her for it!
On the September issue of Hello! magazine, we spotted Sonam looking drop dead gorgeous dressed in a classic black jumpsuit and ruffled cape from Azzai and Osta. Sporting minimal makeup with a stunning red pout, Sonam is glam personified.
Wondering how to get a similar look? We’ve got your back! Read on for a complete breakdown of this look.
Even though fresh and dewy skin maybe in this season, Sonam knows that matte skin is a classic that never goes out of style. Begin with applying a tiny amount of the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer . This will mattify your face and make your makeup last longer. Next, a thin, even layer of the Lakmé 9 To 5 Flawless Matte Complexion Foundation to give your base a natural looking finish. Finally, apply a little bit of the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer and apply it to the under-eye area as well as any other area that you think requires additional coverage. Your base makeup is now ready.
Moving on to the cheeks, you absolutely can’t miss Sonam’s chiselled cheekbones and jawline. To achieve a similar look, apply the darker shade from the Lakmé Absolute Highlighter - Moon-Lit under your cheekbones and on your jawline. Next, apply a little bit of the highlighter from the same palette on the high points of your face. Finish your cheeks by applying the Kareena Kapoor Khan Lakmé Absolute Cheek Contour in Rose Gold for an earthy flush of colour.
Sonam has kept her eye makeup super minimal. Start by swiping the pink shade from the Lakmé 9 To 5 Eye Quartet Eyeshadow - Desert Rose all over your lid. Take the same eyeshadow and apply it under your waterline as well. Next draw a thin line on your eyelid using the Lakmé Insta Eyeliner – Black. For the brows, fill in the sparse area using the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil to make them look bold and defined.
Sonam’s lips are the absolute highlight of this look. We love how the lip colour is giving her look some serious retro vibes. To recreate this look, start by lining your lips with the Lakmé Kareena Kapoor Khan Absolute Lip Definer – Crimson. Next apply two coats of the Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color - Rhythmic Red for extra definition.
We can’t complete this look decode without giving a special mention to her hair. The messy bun with a wavy side fringe adds to the retro vibe of her entire outfit and frames her face beautifully.
