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.

SUBTLE INDIAN MAKEUP

As you would have noticed, most of my makeup tutorials have a lot of focus on the eyes. I strongly believe that if you can highlight your eyes , half the battle is won. Indian look is synonymous to dark eyes and red lips. This is a look created with the red and golden hues(but not going overboard) which is perfect for Indian weddings and parties.

Gold is a great shade for makeup and it suits the Indian skin tone really well. It is a royal color which makes your eyes pop with kohled eyes.

On the eyes –

Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Eye shadow palette

Desert sand all over the eye lids until smooth

Nefertiti on the inner corners and slowly moving towards the mid of the eye lids

Saffron and Blazing on outer corner of the eyes blended in really well

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.

20180627_144735

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.

20180627_145036

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.

 

SUMMER HUES : FOTD

They said yellow eye shadow is the biggest trend this summer. From mustard to neon, my Instagram feed was flooded with great artists experimenting with the brightest and sunniest shades of yellow. So when I set out to explore the streets of Prague on a very sunny day, I decided to experiment with the bright hues of yellow. Thanks to my Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions, the color pop was totally worth it.

20180626_220005

I would not even have to explain what I used if you would see the palette for yourself. I started with a Bobbi Brown eye primer for the eye shadow to show its true colors.Basically, I used a mix of pink and purple in crease and base which are evenly spread out. I used the benefit concealer on the inner corner and spread it to the middle of the eyelids for the yellow to be as bright as possible. Then, I tapped the yellow color on the concealer and slowly blended it across the lids to even it out with the purple.

20180626_220150

Interestingly I had left my INGLOT AMC77 gel eyeliner(which I generally use) back home and I had no option but to use a lip liner on the eyes. I used NYX Maroon lip liner for the same and it did not disappoint me at all.

20180626_220235

As always, I was a little too shy to use a bright lip color with bright eyes and a very bright yellow top. Hence, I chose MAC twig, an absolute subtle and everyday wear lip color . Benefit brows and Benefit Roller Lash mascara as usual to complete the look.

RoseGal was in fact started by a group of friends all of whom shared a deep passion for great fashion. They give specific focus to a lot of particular styles. First of all, plus size fashion – They have the most affordable range of outfits fit for all occasions – from party wear to swimwear.  The second broad category is vintage fashion – There’s something so ladylike and elegant about the vintage collection they have.The vintage style is a unique  fashion statement, truly capturing the essence of classic fashion. The most appealing category is the one which caters to most of us – contemporary and modern.It showcases the very recent trends and the styles are loved by one and all. My personal bet on this website, solely because it had something for everyone irrespective of gender, body type, taste etc.

Coming to the latest trend of one shoulder tops and dresses,I think it is a great way to jazz up a look, bringing in the glamour quotient almost immediately.It gives a great structure to an outfit and also breaks the body shape lines into visually longer and leaner.

Steps I followed to get this look –

Step 1: Prepped and primed the eyelids with the Urban Decay Eyeshadow primer potion.

Step 4: I applied the shade Smog in gold from the Urban Decay  eyeshadow box to the middle of the lid and the shade blackout in the outer corner till I was happy with the intensity.

Step 5: I applied the gold eyeshadow to the lower lashline and followed up with black liner on the lower water line.

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.
