Sonakshi Sinha IIFA Rocks 2016 Green and Golden eye makeup tutorial

Hey everyone,

How are you all doing? As many of you know, I have recently shifted to Mumbai. I am finally here in my dream city and words can never express how great it feels to be here.
Anyway, back to today’s post. I am here with a celebrity inspired makeup tutorial. It is Sonakshi Sinha’s IIFA Rocks look which I have tried recreating today. The beauty frenzy world is going gaga over Deepika and Priyanka Chopra’s looks; even I was smitten by Deepika’s graphic winged liner look, yet I chose to recreate Sonakshi’s retro look first. Reason? Unknown :P

Sonakshi Sinha gave us serious seventies disco vibe in the olive hued, beaded Zara Umrigar gown, center parted straight, smooth hair and strappy heels. Well, I didn’t like the dress and also felt that the choker seemed too strangulating, but I liked her eye makeup pretty much. This look is inspired by her and i have only tried recreating the makeup and nothing else..

So let us go through the breakdown..

Start by prepping your skin. Apply a moisturizer and also don’t forget your sunscreen if you are going out in the sun. Apply dots of your favorite liquid foundation all over the face and blend with a wet sponge. This will give a dewy finish.


Apply concealer under your eyes and on any discoloration on the face. Groom your brows and tight line your eyes.  Now take a teal green eye shadow and apply on your inner and outer corners of your eye lid. On the middle apply a golden eye shadow. Make sure the eye shadows you are using are shimmery, or at least satiny in texture. Now blend any harsh lines between the colors with a buffing brush. Buff some matte brown eye shadow on crease. Line your lower lashline with black kohl and smudge the same green eye shadow on outer portion of your lower lash line and golden on the inner corner of your lower lash line too. Finally add loads of mascara to round off your eye makeup.

Contour and then apply a peachy blush on the cheeks and also your favorite highlighter on the high cheek bones and nose bridge.

Apply any subtle color. She went for nude lip color and so did I.

So that’s it. Let me know how did I do? Thank you all so much for all the love you have been pouring. Love you all… :)
