Sonam Kapoor Cannes 2014 Makeup Brown/black Smokey Eyes

By Sugandha Choudhary @sugandha04


Hey everyone! Its been a long time since I have done a makeup look on my blog. i was itching to do it for such a long time but with my travelling and all..just couldnt manage so now if you see a flurry of makeup looks dont say you warent warned. There are going to be a lot many makeup looks this month ( I hope so). So for today’s post I am doing Sonam Kapoor Cannes 2014 makeup look. From the photos it looks though she has some black/brown smokey eyes going on with a matte makeup finish with [email protected] lips and some nice contouring.


So here we go.

Here is my take on her eye makeup:

Start with filling my eyebrows

After priming the eyes I applied a brown base on the lid area. I have used loreal gel liner in espresso.  And I lightly blended it with my finger.


After that I applied a matte black eyeshadow on the lids and blended the rest away into the crease softly.


For the crease I took a medium brown eyeshadow and blended it into the crease until the lid and crease area were not blended seamlessly.


For the waterline I applied black gel liner and then smudged it.


Taking a pencil brush I took some brown eyeshadow and applied it below the black gel liner.


For the highlight shade under the brow bone and in the inner corner I used a matte beige eyeshadow.Sonam doesnt seem to be sporting a visible black eye liner in the pictures, but I did tightline my eyes  to fill any gaps and make my lashes look thicker.


Now moving on to the face makeup:


I have used a matte face primer to mattify the foundation. And then I went for a full coverage foundation I used the Kryolan supracolor foundation.

Next the whole concealer and powder routine. You can read here how I apply concealer to hide dark circles.

For the blush I have chosen Nyx cream blush in Boho Chic and applied a soft pink/peach blush over it.

I have done some contouring using Physician’s Formula bronzer booster. 

For the lips I have on Loreal infallible lipstick in Forever Frappe over a [email protected] lipliner.

And I am done. Here are the pictures.
