Beauty rules exist for a reason: like wear your concealer before foundation, always always take off all make-up before going to bed and make a smokey eye a little messy. But make-up isn’t fun until you take a few risks and break a few commandments. Take a cue from Sonam Kapoor who’s an ace at pushing boundaries (or completely ignoring them) and start your own rebellion.
The rule: Don’t do bold eyes and bright lips.
How she did it: This is a tricky prospect if you don’t know colours (green shadow will never go with red lips). Sonam strikes that balance with graphic eyeliner, gold shadow and a pop lip colour.

#summertrends #makeup #love #pinkliner #instamakeup #skin #pinkgloss #instamakeup on the gorgeous @sonamkapoor here's a breakdown of how to recreate sonams look ❤️❤️❤️ beautiful pictures by @thehouseofpixels 1) Always start by prepping and refreshing the skin with a glow mist or avene face Mist ( it has essential oils ) 2) Apply An extra repair eye-cream only under the eyes, don't apply on the eyelids (it gets oily) . Use a primer (regular moisturiser that u use daily ) on the rest of your face and neck by gently pressing it into your face with your palms. 3) Use a corrector it brightens and covers discolouration under the eyes and neutralizes undereye darkness) followed by a concealer under the eyes and on any discolouration on the face(a yellow based concealer camouflages under eye darkness) 4) With a clean foundation brush apply a liquid foundation with medium to full coverage lightly all over the face and blend with a wet sponge. With a big powder puff use a loose powder to set the foundation into the skin 5) Use a pink lip liner as an eye liner , start near the tear duct and glide the pencil and finish off as a winged liner . Add a touch of yellow to the inner corner of the eyes. 6) Curl your lashes and apply 2 coats of mascara concentrating it towards the outer corner. 7) Use a pink blush on the cheeks and a soft pearl iridescent higlighter on the high cheek bones and bridge of the nose 8) Finish of this look with a pink gloss .
The rule: Coloured eyeliners belong in the ’80s.
How she did it: It’s all about using a complementary shade and exercising control. To get the look make-up artist Namrata Soni actually used a pink lip pencil along Sonam’s upper lashes and then finished it with just a hint of yellow shadow at the tear duct.
The rule: Don’t be matchy-matchy
How she did it: It worked because Sonam chose to complement a gleaming Rimzim Dadu sari with subtle, precise accents like a thin blue eyeliner and pastel nails.
The rule: Dark lipstick is ageing.
How she did it: The trick is to find a lip shade that flatters your skin tone, not one that makes you look Morticia Addams. Brush some blush or bronzer along the hollow of your cheeks to bring some more warmth to your face. (We’ve got some tips to cheat that glow)
The rule: Never leave home with greasy hair.
How she did it: Your second (or even third) day hair has more control, texture, shine and umm moisture than freshly washed hair. So instead of reaching out for the dry shampoo it’s the best time to try a tricky updo or even a hun. (Here’s some more messy hair style inspo)
