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.

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)  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.
