Today’s post is not an outfit post but a makeup look for upcoming festivals in India. I have used some bright colours in this makeup look but still tried to keep it soft and simple. I wanted to create this makeup look which can be worn by young girls to middle-aged women. I don’t want to make it heavy. I’m quite happy with the result that finally came out. My outfit was peach in colour and I wanted to wear a peach colour lipstick but that was making my makeup too soft so I chose one shade darker colour than my outfit. My lips colour is slightly dark but not too deep so I had a chance to keep my eye makeup a bit heavy. However, I had to keep it in balance, not too heavy not too minimal. I am sure you must have understood my point of view. You can create this makeup with your white or black dresses. If you are going to wear this makeup with your green outfit, my suggestion will be to keep your lip slightly light peach. Anyway, now it’s time for a quick tutorial of this makeup look.
First step –
I always keep my primary focus on the base. To keep in mind the sweaty weather, I cleansed my face with a light textured cleanser and then washed my face with fresh water. Applied a light moisturising lotion and then wiped the excess moisturiser by dabbing a damp cotton wool on my face. Then applied a primer and then foundation. I used The Body Shop Fresh Nude Foundation here. It’s a medium coverage foundation which I love. I can’t bear a heavy coverage foundation in this season, more so when you have to wear this makeup in daytime on the festival day. To hide the flaws and spots, I used L’Oreal Paris Infallible Total Cover Concealer Blender. I set my makeup with Mac Select Sheer Pressed Powder.
Second step – I groomed my eyebrows with powder to give a natural finish.
Third Step – As I mentioned I wanted to keep a balance between heavy and light eye makeup. I wore green metallic eyeshadow to give a nice contrast to my lip colour. I applied it on my upper lids and blended with my fingertip, used the same shadow on my lower lids. Then applied a brown shade from above the crease to near the brows and blended well. Used a matte beige colour shadow on my brow bones. Lined up my eyes in usual winged line look with L’Oréal Paris Super Liner Perfect Slim – Intense Black and curled them up with mascara. I used Inglot False Lash Effect Mascara.
Fourth Step – I contoured my face with Rouge Bunny Rouge Natural Defining & contouring liquid. I highlighted my face with the Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter Golden Lights.
Fifth Step – For apple of cheeks, I used M.A.C Peaches Powder Blush that added a warm tone to cheeks without making the overall look go flashy.
Sixth step – Completed my festival look with my favourite lipstick. I applied MAC Morange Lipstick. It’s a deep orange shade but for getting a bit soft look, I applied with a light hand and just one or two swipe.
Seventh step – I finished my makeup by spraying a makeup setting spray and putting a small sticker bindi. And DONE. 🙂
Hope you will like this makeup look and get some inspiration for your festival makeup!
