Gold-Rust Make-up look!

Gold-Rust-Makeup

Hi Everyone,

With the wedding season in full swing, I have a series of party/ wedding looks for you all to try. One of which is a Gold Rust Makeup look which I would be talking about in this Blog. This looks works best with Black, Gold, Maroon or Rust coloured outfits.

Eyes

Here the eyes are kept less dramatic as my Lipstick shade is dark enough to add drama. On the eyes I used a soft gold on the lids and a brownish-copper on the outer V. Softly lining the eyes,  Avoiding a dense line of Kohl instead paying attention just on the outer 1/4th of the eye for a wider and bigger look.

Lips

I have used a pretty rust-copperish lipstick here from maybelline, named ‘Keep Me Coral’

10 Minutes to Smokey eyes!

smokey_eyes_1

Hi Everyone!

Classic smokey eyes can never go wrong for any occasion. You can choose the color and intensity depending upon the time of the day and of course the category for outing. Many people have a misconception of a smokey eye makeup, which is, it has to be black and bold all the time. If you too feel that way, allow me to make a correction here…

You can choose absolutely any color for a smokey eye effect ranging from neutral such as soft mauve or plum to dark and intense shades such as navy blue or black.

The shades I have chosen here is black, brown and a dull shimmery greyish-brown from the Maybelline ‘The Nudes Palette’.

Let me show you how you can achieve this look in 10 minutes!

Smokey Eyes in 10 minutes

And the time starts now….

 

Step 1 

Primer

Use an eye-shadow primer on your lids so that the shadow glides on easily, doesn’t crease and lasts longer.  The primer I have used is from MAC and the shade name is Painterly.

Apply it evenly on the whole of the upper lid and if you do not have one, you can use a concealer, If you happen to run out of a concealer also… go ahead and used a small bit of your foundation.

Time Taken – 00:00:45

 

Step 2 

Eye-Shadow

I have picked the darkest quad form the Maybelline ‘The Nudes Palette’.

1. Apply Shade number 1 evenly on the upper eyelid.

        Time Taken – 00:00:30

2. Apply Shade number 2 in the crease and the outer half of the upper and lower lid. This steps required enough blending so that no harsh lines are visible.

        Time Taken – 00:01:00

3. Apply Shade number 3 in the inner half of the upper and lower lid and make sure the blending is proper so that the transition between shade 3 and 2 isn’t noticeable.

        Time Taken – 00:00:45

4. Apply shade number 4 in the outer corner and the lash line of the upper and lower lid. Blend Blend Blend!

         Time Taken – 00:00:45

5. Use a Black Kajal to line the upper and lower lid. Making it thicker at the outer 1/3 of the eye and thin as it gradually goes in.

         Time Taken – 00:00:30

6. Repeat the process with shade 4.

         Time Taken – 00:00:30

 

Time Taken – 00:04:00

 

Step 3

Mascara

Put lots of Black Mascara on the upper and lower lashes . I used Maybelline Falsies Mascara here.

Time Taken – 00:01:15

 

Step 4

Lashes

Apply Lashes on the upper lash line. I generally prefer using lashes only on the outer 1/3 of the eye for more natural looking lashes. But in order to dramatise the look you can choose the type and length as per your convenience.

Time Taken – 00:03:30

Indian Wedding Makeup

IMG_20150510_203908172

I created this ”Indian Wedding Makeup” look long back, just couldn’t find time to post it. Here, I paired copper eye makeup with pastel pink lips, paying special attention towards the skin to make it look flawless for which I used a BB cream as a base, foundation for concealing and a compact to seal it all. After which I used a blush and highlighter to get the finished look. I follow this routine whenever I do wedding makeups, not otherwise.

5 Minutes Make-Up Challenge!

5 Minutes Make-Up

Hi Everyone!

My blog for the day will help you with make-up when you have absolutely no time in hand. I follow this scenario when I am getting late for an outing and have no time to spend on elaborated makeup.

Step – 1:

Put compact all over your face and neck with a big fat powder brush. A good brush can really quicken the process.

Time taken – 00:00:50

Step – 2:

Put on some blusher on the cheeks. Swipe the same brush on the eyelids (the left over product on the brush shall be good enough for an everyday makeup look). This will add warmth to the face.

Time taken – 00:00:45

Step – 3:

Put on a brown eyeliner using a pencil, A pencil really helps put eyeliner quickly, its absolutely okay if your line is not perfect because we are going to smudge it in the next step.

Time taken – 00:01:00

Step – 4:

Use a brush to smudge the eyeliner you’d just put. Make sure you do this as soon as you apply it as with the course of time the liner tends to dry out and the smudging becomes time consuming and even the look of it doesn’t turn out to be as desired.

Time taken – 00:01:00

Step – 5:

Use the same brush (with no extra product), and stain the lower outer corner of the eye, giving just a tint of color.

Time taken – 00:00:30

Step – 6:

Put on some Mascara

Time taken – 00:00:30

Step – 7:

Use a lip gloss/lipstick

Time taken – 00:00:25
