Sonam’s Make-Up Artist Reveals Her Favourite Pink Lipstick
Film promotions are the best time for some style spotting in Bollywood. And when it is a movie Sonam Kapoor is starring in, be assured there’s going to be a ton of make-up and hair inspiration going on. The girl thrives on changing up her look, and I’m not complaining one bit! Sonam’s latest outing was in a Natasha J ensemble, and it looks like “pretty” and “dainty” was the memo given to her make-up artist Namrata Soni. Naturally, the make-up maven aced it like the pro that she is. Take a look for yourself.

Don’t you just hate it when you have to rely on guesswork to figure out what products celebrities have used to achieve the look you’re crushing on? But here’s the best part: Soni revealed the exact lipstick Sonam is wearing in this look on Instagram, and naturally we love her even more now.
Soni has used Bobbi Brown Art Stick in Hot Berry on Sonam, which is a gorgeous neon pink that screams summer. This highly pigmented lip colour comes in a semi-matte texture and is definitely going in my shopping cart right about now. That, and the bubblegum pink blush that she’s wearing, which I’m guessing (argh!) is Nyx Rouge Cream Blush in Hot Pink.
Sonam paired her pretty in pink make-up with a really dainty braided updo. While this video is not exactly how Sonam’s hair is done, it’s a great tutorial on how to achieve her crown braids. The Youtube tutorial uses a lot of hair extensions to get voluminous hair. If you have mid-length hair and/or don’t need instructions on how to put on your extensions, fast forward to 3:15.
Part your hair on the side before you start braiding your hair. Once you’ve secured your braids, gather the rest of your hair in a bun like Sonam did or let it loose like in the video. You can also wear it in a ponytail if you want to get the hair off your shoulders.
