Spring/Summer Look#2 : Turquoise blue and forest green eye makeup for day/evening

Hi everyone!

This is look #2 of my Spring/Summer Look Book.  Look #1 was Everyday makeup using colored liners.

Blue and green and my favorite shades for bright spring/summer eye makeup. For this look, I have paired a very popular color this season- turquoise blue, with forest green for the eyes with nude lips for the daytime and plum lips for the evening.

On a well moisturized face, apply foundation ,set it with compact and apply bronzer on cheeks. For the eyes, pair a turquoise blue eyeshadow with dark green( outer half of lid) and pair this with nude lips for the daytime and glam it up with plum lips for the evening.

I have kept the turquoise shade intense only on the inner half of lid and blended it out with dark green to keep the look subtle and wearable.

This is the final look (with nude lips )

Orange lipstick : REVLON ‘Misty Rust’ swatches, FOTD and NOTD

Spring is almost here and as predicted by many beauty and fashion bloggers, ORANGE is going to be the hot color this season.

While most people would cringe at the thought of orange lipstick or orange eye shadow, it is actually one of the colors that can instantly brighten up your face especially when worn on the lips. A bright fluorescent orange may not suit a lot of skin tones but there are a lot of other variations of orange which are universally flattering- burnt rusty orange, brownish orange, bronzy orange etc.

This is my take on how to sport the orange lips look.

On a well moisturized face, apply light/medium coverage foundation,  golden/light brown subtle eyeshadow(optional) with brown/black liner, a little brownish blush in the hollow of the cheeks with bronzer on the apples of the cheeks and lastly, the orange lipstick.

I’ve paired this makeup with a simple white shirt and minimal accessories. Whenever is doubt about what clothes to pair with bright/eye catching makeup, always go for white, black, beige i.e neutral colors and keep the accessories minimal. Let the makeup be the star of the show!

Revlon 'misty rust' - Orange lipstick FOTD

This looks is best suited for the day time though it can be jazzed up for the evening by adding a little more gold to the eyes. The lipstick I have applied is a matte shade ‘033 Misty Rust‘ from REVLON matte lipstick range.  Another shade worth having is ‘Sienna‘ from Revlon Colorburst range. Its not a true orange but a  beautiful brown-red-orange which would be very flattering on all skin tones.

Products used for eye makeup- Orange lips look

3. Next, apply lots of kajal on the waterline and smudge it a little on the lower lash line.

4. Apply brown/black liner on upper lash line. If using brown in pencil form, apply on lower lash line also.

5. Finish off with a coat of mascara.

Nail-of-the-day

Lotus Herbals COLOR DEW nail enamel 'Orange Alert'

Keeping up with the orange fever, this is ‘Orange Alert’ from Lotus herbals COLOR DEW nail enamel. The quality of the nail paint is excellent though the color is not that interesting- its neither completely bright (fluorescent) nor completely burnt and rusty, its somewhere in between. A more apt description would be hanuman ji-teeka orange 😛

Since this is the only orange in this range I would have preferred a more burnt rusty orange shade (like the lipstick).
