If you have a birthday coming up, let's face it, the only party you'll be able to throw in the middle of this pandemic is a virtual one. But don’t worry, just like us commoners, celebs aren’t immune to this virus either. One such celebrity who will be celebrating her birthday in the age of social distancing is Sonakshi Sinha. The actress turns 33 on June 2 and to celebrate, we’ve rounded up 5 of her best makeup looks that are not only perfect for your online parties but any virtual occasion. After all, Zoom interviews, video call parties, virtual dates, etc are the new normal in the time of coronavirus and you need to start embracing it if you haven’t already. So, get out your makeup bag, perfect these makeup looks, login to your Zoom account, and let your beauty shine through the screen.
Ever since this lockdown began, long office meetings that once took place in person, are now being held via Zoom or video call. So, we’ve got just the makeup look that will help you look amazing (and not like you just woke up) the next time your boss calls. For this look, you don’t need to go all out; just a puff here and a dab there can instantly make it seem like you’ve got the healthiest skin despite being quarantined at home for the past few months.
Take the 'no-makeup' makeup route just like Sonakshi Sinha by copying this barely-there makeup look. If you have a list of meetings lined up, all you need is some primer to seal those pores, mascara to highlight your eyes, a bit of blush on the apples of your cheeks and some highlighter on your inner corners to make your eyes look awake and hide the fact that you’ve completely messed up your sleep schedule. Using a pinkish-nude lipstick to complete this look will enhance your beauty without even having to try that hard.
If you are also celebrating a quarantine birthday just like Sonakshi Sinha, then you’re going to have plenty of people video calling you and/or even have a Zoom party of your own. Now, just because you’re isolating at home doesn’t mean you can’t look good. After all, it is your party and you can do whatever you want to.
Coloured eyeliner is in and what better way to celebrate turning a year older than by embracing a new trend. If you’re wondering how to pull off this makeup look, then just take a hint from the actress. A metallic purple shadow on your upper lash line, a purple liner on your lower lash line, a few coats of mascara, and your smouldering eye makeup is done. You can complete the rest of your look with a nude lipstick, blush, and a bit of highlighter.
Virtual Date Look
#LoveInTheTimeOfCorona seems to be the hot topic ever since this lockdown began and if you’ve embarked on a dating journey of your own (and by this, we mean reinstalling dating apps ) then there’s a Sonakshi Sinha makeup look that’s ideal for the occasion.
First dates are always stressful and given the fact that you will be communicating through a screen doesn't make things any better but we've got just the solution. You can keep him captivated by wearing a sultry shade of red lipstick. A Deep Rose Red lipstick shade on your lips, complete with a taupe smokey eye, blush, highlighter, and a bit of brow powder to fix those quarantined untamed brows will help keep his attention on you through the entire virtual date.
Saturday Night Party
Your Saturday night ritual of dressing up to the nines, slipping on a pair of heels, and painting the town red probably feels like an eternity ago. Now Saturday night is all about those virtual parties, going makeup-free in your sweats, or just jumping into bed with a good book. But if you’re the type who’s all about the glam and love feeling like a million bucks, you can still go all out with your makeup during your Saturday Zoom party!
The best thing about virtual parties is that you can attempt edgy makeup looks you would otherwise be too afraid to try. This emerald eye makeup look is perfect for those who want to take a walk on the wild side. Start by adding a regal green eyeliner on your upper lash line, followed by a green eyeshadow all over your lids, and extend to create a winged eye. Add a little drama to your lashes by coating them with mascara and highlight your features with a highlighter. Since there’s so much going on with your eyes, keep your lipstick subtle by opting for a pinkish--nude shade. This look will surely make you the star of the party.
If you are searching for a new job during this lockdown and you have a bunch of virtual interviews lined up, it’s important to look put-together by not only wearing the right clothes but also using the right makeup. Make sure you don't go all out--your makeup should be minimal and still make a good first impression.
This Sonakshi Sinha makeup look is perfect for your Zoom interview. Start by applying a nude eyeshadow across your eyelids and then define your eyes by using black eyeliner on your upper lash line. You can also wing it out if you want, but remember to keep it subtle. Next, a bit of eyeliner on the lower lash line will make your eyes look bigger and coats of mascara will add more intensity to your eyes. For the remainder of your makeup, you can add a little colour to your cheeks with blush and apply a nude lipstick to keep things subtle.
