Sonia Bennett is one of the most famous make up artist and hair stylist in Bangalore. She strives to create revelations through make up and hair styling. Her passion for make up started at a very early age. A beautiful and fun loving girl, whose special fortes are creative fashion looks, concept styling,  still shoots, fashion shows,  make overs and so on. Sonia is currently working as a makeup artist in MAC and has also worked with various photographers, wedding planners, fashion editors, art directors, designers and freelanced as well since 2010.


She was present at INIFD for a makeup workshop and I really liked this session as I was selected as her model and could really feel the magical difference after makeup.


In this session Sonia Bennett taught us basic makeup with smokey eyes. She taught us the correct way of using makeup step by step. After cleansing my face, the first product from M.A.C which she used was, the MOISTURISER and then for the base a STUDIO FIX FLUID was used which really smoothen my face. Then, according my skin tone, an orange concealer from MAC palette was used under my eyes & nose for a flawless skin. Finally she used a PERP N PRIME LOOSE POWDER for the final touch and a SHADESTER SCULPTING POWDER was used by her on my cheeks.


Next comes the EYE makeup. Her focus was on eyebrows for which she used DEEP DARK BRUNETTE and then comes the eyes for which MAC EYE PENCIL was used as a liner. Black smokey eyes with MAC EYE SHADOW with a golden glitter touch was done. MAC MASCARA was also used to enhance the eyes. And finally a nude colored lipstick was applied, which completed the look.


It was really a great experience with her, as apart from being talented Sonia Bennett is a very friendly person with a lot of energy and a beautiful smile.


I am really very thankful to INIFD Bangalore,  for conducting this workshop which helps us in improving our daily life activities. I wholeheartedly thank our Hon’ble Center Director Mrs. Fareeda Khan & Team INIFD Bangalore for giving us such learning exposures and look forward to keep learning more.
