Beauty secrets’s Sonam Kapoor! Sonam Kapoor who was recently felicitated as Beauty of the Year at Vogue Beauty Awards spills out her secrets.

What’s your skincare routine? 

I always use a moisturiser with a sunblock before stepping out, and at the end of the day I use an eye-make-up remover and wash my face with Cetaphyll. Before I retire to bed, I use an intense moisturiser and eye cream.

What’s in your make-up bag?

Concealer, Foundation Fond de Teint (L’Oréal True Match), Bronzer, Baby pink powder, L’Oréal Paris Mega Volume Collagen Mascara, L’Oréal Kajal pencil and L’Oréal Lip Gloss. What’s your go-to beauty look for a red carpet event?

I love to experiment with my look each time. My go-to beauty look for a red carpet event would definitely be red lips, it makes me very confident.

What do you think is sexy, beauty-wise? 

Dark smoky eyes, open hair and pouty lips.

Your idols growing up

Madhubala and Waheeda Rehman.

Perfume; it is underestimated and there’s nothing sexier than smelling good.

Michael by Michael Kors. I spray it on my neck, wrist, ankles and elbows.
