Steal the Look: Sonam Kapoor at the 2009 IIFA Awards

Sonam Kapoor is all over the map these days - it seems like there's not a month that doesn't go by where Sonam isn't on some magazine cover, promoting a movie or in the Bollywood gossip columns. Seems like she's slowly but surely dethroning Deepika Padukone as the reigning princess of Bollywood!!

Sonam is one of my personal favorites of all the Bollywood beauties when it comes to fashion and beauty. In my opinion, she has pretty good taste in both fashion and beauty and is less likely than some actresses to show up at events wearing a dress that resembles drapery. At the 2009 IIFA Awards, Sonam tries out a green smoky eye which ends up looking gorgeous and not hideous.

To get the look:

Eyes: Apply a shimmery green eye shadow such as MAC Shadow in Swimming from lashline to crease. Apply a matte black shadow such as MAC Shadow in Carbon in the crease of the lids and in a thick line along the upper lashline using a wet liner brush - extend line out ever so slightly. Apply a black kohl pencil such as MAC Kohl Pencil in Smolder along the upper lashline and in the lower waterline. Finish with black mascara.

Cheeks: Apply a slightly shimmery bronzer such as Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzer in Bali Brown to cheeks and blend well. Add a pop of any highlighting powder to add dimension.

Lips: Apply a light slick of peachy coral lip gloss such as Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss Compact in Coral Pink to the lips.


  1. wowww she always looks so beautiful! thanks for the makeup breakdown, i'm definitely going to try this look.

  2. Sonam actually went to my high school. :) I think she's grown into a beautiful woman, I almost don't recognize her compared to what she looked like 5-6 years back.

    And her boy, Irfan and her look adorable together! But coming to the make-up, getting the smokey-eye right is an art. I see people look like someone punched them in the eye more often than achieve the look.

    Psst, the blog is up & running. :) I kick started it with a post on Bollywood, heh. (

  3. You're welcome, Little M!
