Thinking tonality when it comes to makeup is a celeb-certified way to rock a stunning visage, without making it look like you’re trying too hard. When your makeup colours match or complement each other, that’s when the magic happens. Since going monochrome is a sure shot way to ace a casual day beauty look effortlessly, we take a closer look at how Bollywood’s gorgeous star Sonakshi Sinha makes use of tonality to slay a gorgeous everyday makeup look that is worth copping. Sonakshi turns to coral hues to add colour to her lids, cheeks, and lips. This move allows her makeup to look unanimously radiant and lets her go-to winged liner style do its job without a hiccup. What we see is just beautifully toned skin that has warmth and a natural glow. If you wish to ace your casual makeup in the same effect as that of Sonakshi’s, take note of these easy-to-follow steps and behold the results.
Follow these steps to ace the star’s casual, coral makeup look.
Every makeup look deserves a beautiful base to set things in the right direction. For healthy-looking skin that appears peachy and soft, start with a solid CTM routine and layer on a non-greasy sunscreen. Once your skincare is in place, choose a skin-loving foundation or BB cream to get a natural coverage that will even out your skin tone. Don’t forget to set your base with either a loose setting powder or a makeup setting spray.
It’s always best to work your way from your eyes to the lips; your eye makeup can help dictate the rest of your makeup look. For Sonakshi’s coral-toned makeup, opt for matte eyeshadows and jet black eyeliner. Apply a matte eyeshadow closest to your skin tone all over your lids. Follow up with a peach-toned matte eyeshadow to be applied in and above the crease of the lids. Blend well for seamless colour transition. Go bold with classic winged eyeliner in the darkest black you can find. Define your lashes with mascara.
Light brow grooming will ensure your finished makeup look is absolutely professional. If your brows are sparse, use an eyebrow pencil in a light brown hue to add volume and brush the strands upwards and outwards to make it look as natural as possible. Comb your brows with a gel so that it stays well arched all day long.
Time to contour your features and bring on the glow. Begin by blending a bronzer beneath your cheekbones, jawline, and hairline. Choose a rose gold highlighter to apply to your cheekbones, brow bones, bridge of your nose, and Cupid’s bow. Apply a warm-toned orange blush like in an apricot hue to the apples of your cheeks and blend it upwards and outwards.
Your lip shade is the final touch of colour that will tie your whole look together. Don’t let your lips chap by moisturising with a lip balm. Dab off the excess lip balm and outline your lips with a coral-toned lip pencil. Fill in your pout with a swipe of coral lipstick that is creamy and hydrating.
Now that you know exactly how to slay coral makeup, go on and try it out for yourself!
