Quick Summer Makeup

Summers are my absolute favourite for the fact that all the colours are at my disposal and I have the power to use them in anyway! Here is a quick summer makeup which is quite colourful and gives a fresh bright look.

summer makeup

Coloured eye-liners have always been my obsession. They instantly add  an exciting twist to your makeup. The eyeliner I am wearing here is Maybelline Colossal Kajal in the shade Crushed Emerald. Though the colour is attractive and beautiful, but the fact that the product smudges after a few hours and doesn’t retain the sharp neat look, disappoints me. Otherwise it can be happily worn for a few (4-5) hours.

One of the base I often use for summers is the Loreal Liquid Powder which is reviewed here. I really like it for summers for its all-day-shine-free look.

The lip colour is from one of my favourite range, the Lakme Gloss Addict Lipstick in the shade Coral Lustre, reviewed here. This range is all about sheer translucent shades which work so well during summers (well, even winters!). You must have one of the shade from this range. It’s a must have!

A detailed list of products used in this look are listed below.

Gold-Rust Make-up look!

Gold-Rust-Makeup

Hi Everyone,

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’

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.

I gave a final touch to the whole look with a spray of MAC fix plus. It basically hydrates the skin and mellow downs the entire look a little bit, preventing it from looking too loud.

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
