Fireflies: Fiery Eye Makeup

A day wedding is the perfect occasion to experiment with bright bold colors like yellow, orange and red. Recreating a sunset look, I loved the yellow golden hues of the eye shadow and named it “The Fireflies”. With the December parties lining up at the year end, this is the perfect time to experiment with color and go bold in a big way.

As you would have already guessed it, my ‘go-to’ for the eye makeup has always been the Huda Beauty pallete. This time I used the Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions Palette as they have pigmented mattes and striking shimmers like no other. They are so build-able and easy to blend. I started with the striking yellow from the inner corners of the eyes, used the coral pink from the middle to the outer corners and then blended in the black from my UD palette.

I wanted a very thin eyeliner and I went for the MAC Fluidline in the shade Waveline.

I typically go for false eyelashes with transparent Ardell Runway eyelashes in Claudia.

Eyebrows are good old Big Brows from Benefit.

FOTD: FADED BURGUNDY EYEMAKEUP

Holidays are a fantastic time to create new looks and experiment with colors. I had shot this back in summers during our trip to Vienna but finally posting this with all the details. To think of it, it could actually be a great fall/winter look owing to the gorgeousness of this burgundy color.

The only eye shadow palette I had carried was this one – Electric Obsessions by Huda Beauty. Let me begin by telling you about all the products that have gone into creating this look.

BLUE SEA FOAM EYEMAKEUP : FOTD

Blue is such a soothing yet dramatic color for makeup. Blues and greens on the eyes actually look like watercolors on fair skin. With a tinge of metallic shade ,  they shine like jewels. I loved to experiment with some blue eye makeup and I can’t wait to show you the end results. I see so many makeup artists experimenting with galaxy and sea foam inspired makeup. They look lovely, so I decided to start with just one color – the very vibrant blue from Huda Beauty obsession palette.

The color is so vibrant and intense that it captures the splendor of a bright blue sea  appropriately.

Here’s a step by step tutorial for you guys –

Step 1:

I started by applying Bobbi Brown eye primer and blended it evenly all over the eye lids and the area below the brows.

Step 2:

I used the concealer Eraser from Benefit and covered the under eye dark circles.

Step 3

I used a nude color from the Estee Lauder eye shadow palette and covered the whole area and then used the teal color in the outer corner slowly bending inwards.

Step 4

I took a flat brush and used the concealer on the eyelids blending it uniformly and then used the metallic blue over it till it looked vibrant.

Step 5

I lined my eyes with INGLOT black liquid liner(not a fan of felt tip though) and used NYX white on my water line. Finally, Benefit Roller Lash mascara and Ka Brow for completing the look.

This is one of the easiest eye makeup to do which can up your glam quotient in no time.

 

FOTD : SUMMER DAY MAKEUP

I love summers for many reasons – one of the many is how the daylight gives an opportunity for subtle makeup and perfect pictures but at the same time melting makeup, sticky lipsticks and smeared eyeliners can be quite difficult to manage. I go for fresh makeup looks and non-black liners for sunny days. Here’s one I created which is light, simple and very easy to do –

Few things that one must keep in mind while doing a day makeup during summers –

1.Perfect Primer : Investing in a primer is a must. It helps you hold up the makeup in place when you are sweating like a pig 😀

2.Proper base : I prefer oil free foundation formula as oil based make you really sweaty in this sultry heat.

3. Matte : I keep it matte because shimmer in the daylight can make it look very blingy. Even when you attempt a healthy radiance, it shows up as over – the -top shine in summers.

4.  Sheer liner: I skip the conventional black liner and heavy eye shadows as deep colors look really heavy in summers.

5. As natural as possible : Keeping things light will help prevent the caking and creasing of heavy makeup on the face.

 

FOTD:Yellow & Blue Contrast Eye Makeup

As you would have noticed in my previous makeup posts, I have always been shy of using striking bold colors but with the new Huda Beauty electric obsessions palette in my kitty,I cannot stop experimenting with the bright colors. As it is already peak summer here and my wardrobe is filled with summery sunset and blue sky colors, I decided to show you 2 looks of eye makeup inspired by the bright sunny skies which I created recently.
