7 Times Sonam Kapoor Sported Fabulous Beauty Looks. And The Times She Got Real About Makeup

Sonam Kapoor

Known for her sartorial red carpet choices, Sonam Kapoor is known as a fashionista. When it comes to intriguing roles, she’s got her plate full of characters that made us laugh, reminisce about lost love and wish we had a walk-in wardrobe. Right from when she debuted with Saawariya as a fresh-faced newbie to when she played a headstrong air hostess in Neerja which garnered her a National Award—Sonam has certainly been prolific at giving her audience what they enjoy.

As a beauty enthusiast, I’ve loved her fashion picks but it’s her beauty decisions that have drawn me in. While her iconic Cannes appearances have always been an inspiration for one too many, we can’t forget all of the other times she’s served major makeup inspo. Most actresses spend their days in the chair, getting hair and makeup done right before they get on screen, it’s of course then that they start posting selfies calling them BTS. Sonam puts those pictures before the foundation has been airbrushed to perfection, giving us a insights that are truly behind the scenes. She hasn’t shied away from dissing society’s unrealistic beauty standards. That’s the reason Sonam Kapoor holds a really close place in my heart, she’s always been unafraid to speak what’s on her mind. Whether that involved giving the paparazzi a piece of her mind or letting young girls know that imperfections are absolutely okay.

She’s embraced her flaws with her bare-faced selfies and honest makeup tutorials but also served a full face of glamour. Here’s taking a look at some of our favourite beauty moments.

Bare Faced

Sonam has always kept it real when it comes to beauty. She’s never shied away from going makeup-free and showing her fans what a bare face looks like. Blemishes, hyperpigmentation and dark circles—she hasn’t seen these as flaws. In a heartfelt essay for a popular publication, Sonam has spoken about how celebrities don’t wake up with flawless faces and that they spend hours perfecting their hair and makeup.

Feelin’ The Blues

Trust Sonam to sport a striking eye look which makes a statement. With a metallic blue with hints of sparkle, she’s chosen to keep the rest of her makeup subdued with minimal blush and nude lips.

Adding Some Drama

Never shying away from amping up the drama in her eyes, Sonam’s intensely thick cat eyeliner isn’t for the faint-hearted. With a small wing and some pearly eyeshadow, this makes for an easy glamorous makeup look for your next night out on town.

Classic Smokey

Sometimes there’s nothing better than sticking to the classic smokey eye, a look Sonam sports extremely well. Instead of opting for black which could be too overpowering, she’s chosen a dark brown smokey eye which softens the eyes but also gives them a smouldering effect. Paired with peach cheeks that match the earthy tones and a nude lip, the look is complete!

The Marilyn Moment

An ode to the iconic Marilyn Monroe, Sonam looked every bit gorgeous with Marilyn’s signature hairstyle and red lips! However, she decided to play around with her eyes and go in for a doe-eyed look by opting for matte eyeshadow and romantic, fluttery eyelashes. The retro eyeliner adds the ultimate amount of oomph to this look.

Celestial Angel

At the 69th Cannes Film Festival, Sonam channelled some massive celestialcore energy with her makeup. Metallic and chrome hues of silver and gold made her eyes pop! The strategic placement of gold eyeliner towards the outer corner and silver in the inner corner of the eyes made sure that this look was one for the books!

Come On Barbie Let’s Go Party

We see the Barbiecore excitement here! Playing around with some colour, Sonam’s bubblegum pink eyeliner with a vibrant, yellow inner corner practically screams summer. The pink glossy lips are reminiscent of Barbie, aren’t they?
