We have put together a list of products that you can use to recreate the iconic Sonam Kapoor’s makeup look that was created on her in Cannes fashion week. It is such a fuss free and a versatile look that can quickly make you look put together on any occasion. Even though smokey eyes and bold lips is what everyone usually opts for at any Fashion week but Sonam chose to keep it light and we can’t help but fall in love with her entire look! With the wedding season hitting us soon you should opt for this look as less is more! (And oh how beautiful of a neckpiece!) Her makeup was done by Namrata Soni
Firstly, ladies to get that perfect flawless foundation prep and prime your skin well. There are a couple of products that will help to keep your skin hydrated and fresh throughout.
Benefit’s POREfessional primer. This works wonders and hides pores completely. It is oil free and super light weight and helps protect skin as it’s infused with Vitamin E.
Then apply a hydrating foundation. Sonam’s makeup artist has kept her foundation really light and it looks absolutely natural. So, ladies to achieve this look it’s vital to not go overboard as it won’t look natural.
Bobbi Brown’s Creamy concealer will hide your imperfections like a pro. Notice how flawlessly Sonam’s under eye is concealed.
For Eye-makeup opt for palette’s that have peachy, brown & black tones. We swear by: Nars Eyeshadow Cordura Duo. It is super pigmented and will definitely give you exact same smokey effect as Sonam’s. (Pro tip: Keep blending even if your hand hurts, trust me you’ll be grateful for it.)
Nars Eyeshadow Cordura Duo
Sonam’s contouring is always on point and to achieve that we personally think nothing beats Katvon D contour palette. Bronzer would do just fine as well but to imitate the exact look do opt for a contour palette.
Sonam’s blush looks perfect. Just the right amount of Pink to give her a flushed look. Nars in the shade Deep throat (Revlon Blush in Ravishing Rose is definitely a perfect dupe.)
Now it’s time to set the entire makeup and hands down to the best setting spray by Urban Decay.
best setting powder by Laura Mercier.
Nothing can beat these two staples!!
Let’s talk mascara girls. You should always opt for a something that will give you a prominent lash that pops out no matter day or night.
Too faced- Better than sex
& benefit’s Roller lash are magical!
Lets talk eyebrows. There are so many gels and pencils available in the market but nothing seems to do a better job than Huda beauty’s Microshade pencil bomb brows
and Chanel’s Eye definer Le crayon yeux
another favourite eyebrow pencil out there is definitely by Anastasia Beverly Hills that is a work of art.
Lastly, let’s focus on the lips. Charlotte Tilbury’s lip color & pencil in the shade Pillow Talk will give you super natural nude pink shade that Sonam is rocking effortlessly.
This makeup look is super easy and can easily be recreated even if you don’t own the above brands mentioned. Dupes would work just fine and still help you achieve the look. Not only is it event appropriate but you can wear this look to work as well by eliminating black eyeshadow and just keeping peaches and browns. I personally believe, now that the products and secret to Sonam Kapoor’s makeup is revealed we should all jump on the bandwagon and set this as a new trend. Come on ladies! Unleash your inner diva and be a head turner!
