She may be Bollywood’s current reigning queen with her back to back success at the box office, but acting isn’t the only inspirational aspect of DP. Her looks in movies, promotions and events have not gone unnoticed. My first favourite look is something that also went viral with Youtubers and makeup artists and I’d like to call it – The Bold Winged look!
This has got to be the most do-able and universal look that all women can carry off with ease. Apparently, a perfect wing is always a dream for most women, but in my opinion, this look is WAY easier than a smokey eye.

Note – The most important step is to lock that liner with a black eye-shadow. Take a regular black shadow on a small brush and dab it/pack it on top of the liner (after it’s dried, of course). This will prevent any kind of transfer of liner on the top lid, will make the black look more intense and matte, and last but not the least, will make the liner last longer.
The key here is to build your wing step by step, perfect and thick, and take your time to do it! Scotch tapes can be used as guides for getting an even wing on both eyes. And since this look is all about the eyes, the rest of the face must be kept neutral to balance it all out.
Call Diva and Sonam Kapoor will answer. The ever so stylish and fashion forward actress may not bag the best actress role, but she definitely takes home the entire cake when it comes to fashion. I have picked a few of her million gorgeous looks, and I admit, it was a task to pick favourites here!
All of these looks are similar to each other, and I’d like to call it – the Nude Smokey look. Be it the party season or just another occasion where you want your makeup to compensate for your outfit (that would be me!) – this look spells versatility.

The key to a perfect smokey eye is to use minimal product and work with it. Blend it well, with fluffy brushes (Sigma e25) to avoid any harsh lines. Another important aspect of this look is the base + contour, so make sure to concentrate on products that blend almost naturally with your skin tone and type.
Hope y’all have a lovely day!
