One of our readers, Jigna, sent us a Twitter request for a makeup breakdown of Sonam Kapoor‘s look on the cover of March 2012’s Elle Magazine (India). It’s a vibrant, funky, fresh look that’s perfect for spring!
To get the look, prep with foundation and undereye concealer. Heavily line the upper and lower waterline with your favorite black eye pencil or gel eyeliner. Sweep a light peachy-beige eyeshadow (MAC Eye Shadow in Orb) over the lids and up into the crease. Smudge a black or very dark brown eyeshadow into the upper lashes to give them the illusion of thickness. Extend the eyeshadow into a smudgy cat eye.
Sonam’s makeup artist, Namrata Soni, made this cover memorable by using an edgy pop of color. Said Namrata: “We went for navy blue. It looks really beautiful on Indian skin. It really brings out the brown in the eyes.” Line the lower lashline with a glittery electric blue eye pencil (Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Liner in Binge) and smudge slightly. Curl lashes and apply mascara.
Finish the look with a light application of a matte rosy-pink lipstick like MAC Lipstick in Please Me.
