Picking Bollywood's Top 5 Stunners!
Sonam Kapoor has Namrata Soni to thank for her stunning look in her upcoming film, Aisha.
Soni, a make up artist and hairstylist, has been working as one since her school days! She went on to assist hairstylist Dilshad in Main Hoon Na and later, worked on her own in films like Om Shanti Om, Musafir and I Hate Luv Storys.
Soni picks actresses, who according to her, make Bollywood's best faces.
I have worked with Sonam the longest. She is very clear about what she wants. She loves to experiment with colours and styles.
During the Aisha shoot, Sonam would tell me, 'Do whatever you want. Please put blue eye shadow today or just frizz my hair.' Just a slight adjustment to her eye liner or lip colour or blush can change her look completely.
She has amazing hair and it's fun to play with that.
She was very particular about her look because she wanted it to go with her character. She went into every detail but did not interfere. If she disliked something, she would tell me. Otherwise, she would leave it up to me.

Malaika is beautiful to work with. I worked with Malaika during the photo-shoots of Femina and Stuff (a magazine on gadgets). She is so chilled out; I don't feel like I'm going to work!
She knows what she wants and how she wants it. She is very calm and lets you do your work. If there are options, then I offer them to her and she makes the choice.
