Sonakshi’s Boardroom-Worthy Top Knot Is SO Polished

By  | 

One actress who is fearless in her make-up choices is Sonakshi Sinha. I love the fact that she wears colours like a boss. She owns her look and I’ve got proof right here! Also, one can take lessons on how a perfectly drawn cat eyeliner can elevate rather basic outfits. Yesterday was no exception, while the actress casually strolled around Madrid in an enviably sleek and shiny top knot. Her top knot and the make-up she wore were the epitome of perfection. IMO this is a power look worthy of a boardroom, and here’s how you can wear this and assert yourself at work:

Moisturise: No matter what your skin type or the season, you cannot apply make-up to dry, dehydrated skin. Apply the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Light all over your face and neck.

Prep and Prime: Use Colorbar Perfect Match Primer to keep the oiliness at bay and to keep your base makeup in place for hours. Apply L’Oréal Paris Foundation True Match starting in the centre of the face and then blending it outwards. You need to work in layers since you are looking for a natural, bare-skinned look.

Work those cheekbones: Use Lakme Absolute Sun-Kissed Bronzer to give your cheekbones a lift. Push the product in, just below your cheekbones. Follow this with some blush like the Makeup Revolution I Heart Makeup Hearts Blusher Blushing Heart, which is pigmented with just the right amount of sheen.

Eyes: Line the eyes using Maybelline The Colossal Liner. The flexi-tip applicator allows you to draw crisp, precise lines. Use Lakme Eyeconic Kajal in brown to line the waterlines and also under the lower ashes. Brown is softer than black, and it enhances and brings out your eyes without making them look smaller. Apply two coats of L’Oréal Paris Volume Million Lashes and fill in your brows using Blinc Eyebrow Mousse.

Lips: While the rest of her make-up is soft and understated, Sonakshi opted for a shot of colour on her pout. I personally love the soft eyes-strong lips combo. For a bold and dramatic fuchsia pink lipstick apply Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear Lipstick in Read My Lip.

The top knot is one of the best hairstyles to look polished when you have second or third day hair and only 5 minutes to get dressed. Follow this video for a sophisticated top knot when you have greasy hair and an important day at work. All you’ll need is two hair ties that match the colour of your hair.
