Aishwarya Rai Cannes 2011 inspired Blue and Bronze look

Hi everyone!

Today I’m doing a Blue and bronze look inspired by Aishwarya Rai’s Cannes 2011 makeup that she wore with the blue and white Armani Prive outfit.

Aishwarya Rai blue and gold makeup at Canned 2011

I loved the blue used by the L’oreal artists on her lids but did not like the pairing with gold on the lower lash line. In my version of this makeup, I skipped the gold for a subtler coppery/bronze shade on the lower lash line.

Warm colors when paired with blues and green bring out their color because of the contrast and this is what I’ve done here. The blue shade used is a iridescent midnight blue shade (Read review HERE) Β and it quite bright , so I’ve kept the lip and cheek makeup understated with a nude warm lippy and bronzed cheeks for a balanced look.

  1. hey lovely blue… cant really make out the bronze tho…so sice u want to keep it subtle i think bronze is better….gold might look ott

  2. ankit a..i simply love d way u explain step by step way of using eye makeup πŸ™‚ infact i wud be sending few queries of mine help me wid dat..:P n plz do keep this simplified way of explaing for ppl like us πŸ™‚

  3. pretty…I like the blue..

  4. i love your take on the look. dare say better than the original. she is looking too pale. you used a nice deeper colour. also how is the lotus stick .. have u used it as a concealer.

    • Thank you Supriya πŸ™‚ The Lotus stick is quite good, the shade matches me perfectly and it blends very well. I’ve used it as a concealer and all over the face too. It doesn’t conceal my dark circles very effectively though. The only con for me it since it is stick form, my skin feels a little oily after an hour or two but nothing that a little dab with a tissue cannot take care of.

    Awesome look Ankita !!You have blended the blue one nicely,I would have liked to see same look with same hairstyle as Ash !!!

      I picked up the VOV pigments from Beauty Centre. They have brances in Ghatkopar, Kandivli, Crawford market and Khar. I picked it from the Khar branch.

  8. superb!! better than ash’s sachi!

  9. i liked her blue and gold but i dont like the fact that the gold line is sooo thick dts it….
    blog ka makeover … arre waah congrats πŸ˜€

    • Its not suiting her ! You saw her day 3 makeup in the Lanvin dress? That was really gorgeous! Yes blog ka makeover πŸ˜€ it or was the prev one better?

  10. ya loved that outfit as well as makeup and hair.. exactly its not suiting her.!! its getting too bold for her..

    yaa i like the makeover…. i liked it both ways actualy but this ones more precise.. coz ur comments come in a distinguished colour box :))

  11. Hi, Loveeeellly makeup, better than what the Loreal guys have done to Ash. Her lips are too subtle. I guess these makeup companies should hire some of YOU people, i.e. skilled artists to make the heroines look better. I even dont like the kind of makeup done on Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra. It makes them look so dull. I just hope that you get a chance to show your magic on them.
