Revlon inspired ‘Contoured eye- bold lips’ look FOTD

Hi everyone!

Today I’m doing a contoured eye-bold lip look inspired by the look given by Revlon’s Gucci Westman for the Luca Luca show at New York Fashion Week. See the Luca Luca Look  HERE.

Summary of the look :

On a moisturized face, conceal required areas and apply full coverage foundation on face and neck. Blend well and set with powder. For the eyes, apply matte neutral eyeshadow all over lid and darker eyeshadow in crease and outer corner to define and contour the eyes, apply black liner on upper lash line , smudged brown pencil/eyeshadow on lower lash line and mascara on lashes. Define brows with dark brown eyeshadow. Fill in the lips evenly with the bold lip color with a lip brush.

Red smokey eye look with Coastal Scents 88 Palette + FOTD

Hi everyone!

Today I’m doing a red smokey eye look using Coastal Scents 88 palette.

For this look, I’ve paired softly smoked red smokey eye with maroonish red lipstick in one look and red-pink lipstick in another with a little bronzer applied at the apples of the cheeks.

I’ve paired this makeup with a simple white top to avoid any color clashes.
