Party look #3 : Green Smokey eyes and coral lips

Hi everyone!

Today I’m doing an intense green smokey eye look. I’ve paired the green smokey eyes with soft coral lip color and bronzer on cheeks.

Summary of the look :

On a well moisturized face, apply foundation and set with powder. For the eyes, use a black smudgy pencil(or kohl) on entire lid as base and apply green eye shadow all over lid, blend it with a blending brush in the crease. Apply heavy kohl on waterline and lower lash line and smudge it with the green eyeshadow. Apply peachy golden highlighter on brow bone and inner corners and finish with mascara. Use bronzer on the cheeks and apply coral- peach lipstick on the lips.

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.

Party makeup#1 : Simple golden look FOTD

Hi everyone!

Today I’m doing a simple copper- gold party makeup look .  The overall look is quite subtle yet party wear. The key to this look is lots of fine golden shimmer used as lid color and highlighter on cheeks to give a glow to the face. This look is easy to do and will go best with ethnic wear having copper/gold work.

For the cheeks, apply earthy pink blush on apples and hollows of cheeks and lots of golden highlighter on cheekbones. Apply earthy pink lipstick and top off with gloss.

Products used :

Steps :

The eye makeup is very simple with all over lid application of golden-copper eye shadow, smudged liner, kohl and mascara.

1. Apply golden/copper cream/powder eye shadow all over lid, build it up to high intensity and blend it out towards the browbone. I have MAC Cream color base in ‘Improper copper’. Its a golden-copper shade with lots of subtle gold shimmer.

2. Next, I’ve used Chambor blush ‘#59 Star Delight’ as all over lid color to set the cream base. The blush is basically an deep earthy pink shade. When I opened the packaging I found out that it had a lot of fine golden shimmer on the top. The shimmer is very fine and I’m using it as a highlighter/eyeshadow till I finish off the top golden layer and reach the actual blush shade.
