Summer favorites : My coral and peach lipsticks- swatches and FOTDs

Hi everyone!

Summer’s here in full swing and one of my favorite looks this summer are soft, natural looks with corals and peaches. Coral fever is everywhere..from makeup to clothes to footwear! Coral/peach lips paired with a peachy-pink blush instantly give a glow to the face imparting a soft, natural look.

Here are my peach and coral lipsticks-

1. Revlon Colorburst ‘Peach’ (Rs 580)

2. The Body Shop lipstick #63 (Rs 575)

3.Lotus Herbals pure color lipstick ‘Peach creme’ (Rs 225 )

L-R: Revlon colorburrst Peach, The Body Shop #63 , Lotus Herbals 'Peach creme'

L-R :Revlon ColorBurst Peach (single swipe, 4-5 swipes) , TBS no. 63 (single swipe 3-4 swipes), Lotus herbals peach creme (single swipe, 3-4 swipes)

Here is how they look on me-

1. Revlon Colorburst ‘Peach’

This is the lightest shade of my collection and I do not like it as much as the other 2 shades cos it washes me out a little whereas the other 2 shades especially Lotus Herbals ‘Peach creme’ brighten up my face.  More suitable for fair complexions.

This is a true coral shade and a gift from my Mum. Love the shade!

3. Lotus herbals pure color lipstick ‘Peach creme’

This is a peach shade with pink and brown undertones hence easier to pull off. Gives a very bright, fresh look to the face and ‘safe’ peach shade, would suit most complexions.

Party makeup#2 : Red lips and shimmery eyes

Hi everyone!

Last time I did a simple golden party look (click on link to read post) which would pair very well with ethnic outfits.

Today I’m doing a bold lips with shimmery eyes party look with my favorite red lipstick Revlon Colorburst ‘Crimson’ and MAC ‘Jigs and  Jive’ pigment. This look would look great for evening parties paired with a western outfit. Red lips always take up the glam factor up a notch and are a perfect choice for party looks.

The eyes are kept softly shimmery with champagne-tan shimmery eyeshadow with slightly thick winged liner on upper lash line and bare waterline.  I’ve paired this makeup with a black lace-satin knee length dress with red sandals and red nails to match with the red lipstick.

Final look :

For the eyes, apply shimmery champagne eyeshadow all over lid, blend at crease with dark brown matte eyeshadow, apply highlight shade under brows, apply winged liner on upper lash line and finish with mascara. For the cheeks, apply matte earthy pink blush under the cheekbones and on the apples of the cheeks and finish with highlighter on cheekbones. Apply red lipstick using lip brush for precision.

Heavy kohl lined eyes with red lips FOTD

Hi everyone!

Few days back one of the readers AD asked me if heavy kohl lined eyes would look good with red lips with reference to the eye makeup worn by Kareena Kapoor in Kurbaan.  I tried the look today and I quite liked the effect! Thanks AD!

The kohl looked heavier and darker than how it is appearing in the picture.

Summary of the look : 

On a well moisturized face, conceal required areas, apply foundation and set with compact powder. For the eyes, apply light brown matte eyeshadow all over lid, apply heavy kohl on lower lash line and brown pencil on upper lash line and finish with mascara. Apply matte brown blush under the cheekbones and fill in lips with red lipstick using a brush for precise application. 

Products used for eye makeup :

EYES:

1. MAC Select moisture cover concealer NC 45.5

2. MAC Smolder (on water line and lower lash line)

3. Bourjois kohl and contour pencil ‘Brun expressif’ (dark brown shade)

4. Coastal Scents 88 eyeshadow palette

5. The Body Shop smudging brush

Steps :

1. Apply concealer under the eyes as well as on the lids. Blend well and set with compact.

2. Apply matte light brown eye shadow all over the lid.

3. Using MAC Smolder (or any other blackest black liner) apply a thick line on the waterline and smudge it with black eyeshadow on the lower lash line with a smudging brush. This will set the kohl and prevent it from smudging and giving raccoon eyes.

4. Line upper lash line with a medium thick line using matte brown liner pencil.

5. Finish off with mascara.
