Our fave stress-buster to beat the lockdown blues? Watching low-effort makeup looks on the ‘gram. Especially the ones we’d like to copy for ourselves this year. And this time we are taking inspiration from the ultimate trendsetter of B-town i.e., Sonam Kapoor.
Her style shenanigans find fans at home and beyond. However, this time it’s her makeup look that we’re in awe of. Sonam Kapoor Ahuja recently took to Instagram and dropped a bomb of a morning makeup routine. It is low-key and has the ability to make us look chipper and more awake that too in under 10 minutes. Ahead, we’ve put together a step-by-step guide to pull off this makeup look that’s perf for your 9 a.m. Zoom call. So if you wish to up your beauty game, keep on scrolling to take cues from Sonam.
A few months back Sonam unveiled the pick-me-up products she loves to keep her skin fresh and radiant. Sonam believes in sticking to a rigorous CTM routine in order to keep her skin healthy and hydrated. She never skips on her SPF and loves slathering on the skincare hero i.e., Vitamin C.
Unless you’re blessed with superhuman genes, you’ve definitely had to deal with dark circles. Sonam chose to conceal her under-eye area with her go-to concealer as it instantly masks the uneven skin tone and lights up the face.
Sonam follows her concealer with a fine, translucent powder in order to make it crease-proof and sweat-proof. She applies the product all over her under-eye area to make her makeup look seamless and filtered, not obvious and cakey.
Blush is unarguably one of the best products to help us look more lively and flushed and Sonam turns out to be a blush-lover, just like us. She applied her blush on the apple of her cheeks, which instantly added warmth to her face.
If you’ve been waiting for a sign to try an eyebrow gel here it is: Sonam just proves that the right brow gel can completely transform your look with just a few swipes. Trust us – you’re going to love it too! Use a tinted one as it sets your brows in place and makes them look filled in.
Sonam then goes on to apply a couple of coats of her go-to mascara. Mascara can really make us look wide awake in seconds. And it’s best for days when you want to look lively but definitely not overdone.
She then applies a tinted, glossy lip balm to her lips. We recommend using an uber-nourishing formula that will keep your lips pink and pouty while giving them much-needed hydration.
Seems like a highlighter is a key staple in Sonam’s beauty line-up. As her final steps, she applied her fave highlighter on high points of her face. When faking a glow, it’s crucial to consider the positioning. Place it on areas where light naturally hits the face- the top of your cheekbone, brow bone, cupid’s bone, and chin
