Dramatic Berry Gold Smokey Eye for a Desi Bridal Party

Heya My Lovelies!

Today’s post is all about a super dramatic smokey eye with berry tones and a beautiful duo chrome pigment from Inglot that shows up gold in one angle and a pink bronze at a different angle. My uber gorgeous model is my beautiful bestie who was kind enough to lend me her face for the day 😛 ! I’m super happy with how the look came out and this look is perfect for a ‘desi’ bridal party or even for the bride herself! I don’t have a pictorial or step by step for this post but I’ll list all the product details and a diagram of the eye.

Gold and Greens Makeup

IMG_0862

HI My Bunnies!

I’ve been stuck at home with a sore ankle and what better time to do a post than now! This is an absolutely gorgeous gold and greens eye makeup with a bronzed face! I used three different shades of green for an ombre effect even though it’s not too visible in the photos but in real life it’s stunning! This will look beautiful on brown, hazel and of course green eyes!

EYES

~After priming I started off with MakeupGeek Creme Brule on the crease and outer crease(soft warm brown matte) with a fluffy brush

~Then I went with MakeupGeek Cocoa Bear (rich warm brown matte) on the crease with a tapered crease brush

~Then with a flat shader brush I patted on MAC Amberlights (bronzed gold shimmer) on the middle of the lid …I used Fix + to wet the brush for intense color payoff (you can do this whole step last really depends on preference)

~Then I added MakeupGeek ShimmerMint (light minty green shimmer) on both sides of Amberlights and just went back and forth with both the colors until the edges blended nicely

~Then I did the same thing with MAC Humid (rich forest green shimmer) on both sides of ShimmerMint and blended the edges

~Then on both the outer and inner edges I went with MakeupGeek Envy (deep metallic green) and I used a pencil brush

~Make sure to blend it with Humid and keep a little space in the innermost corner for the highlight

~I went with MakeupGeek Cocoa Bear again to blend everything in the crease

~Used Mac AmberLights as a inner corner highlight and Mac Ricepaper for the brow bone highlight

~On the bottom, I did the exact reverse of what I did on the top starting with Envy in the middle, then Humid, then ShimmerMint and lastly AmberLights – blended all of the with Cocoa Bear

~Line the waterline and tightline with a black eyeliner

~Line your top lash line and make a wing

~Put mascara on your lashes and add falsies!

Amber Goddess – Warm Copper and Gold Smokey Eye (EID 2014)

IMG_9897

IMG_9899

 

Hi my bunnies!

The reason I decided to name this look ‘Amber Goddess’ is because of the two BEAUTIFUL eyeshadows I used — the stunners of the show – MAC Amber Lights and MakeupGeek Goddess! I’ve been wearing these colors constantly for the last couple of weeks, just changing up the intensity here and there. I also think it’s perfect for the upcoming EID celebrations…most people love to dress up during EID and I think these shades would compliment many different eye colors and outfits! Everybody loves glitz and glam during EID and nothing screams out glamourous more than GOLD!

*PLEASE EXCUSE THOSE UNKEMPT EYEBROWS! I really need to do something about those! Just too lazy ! 😛

EYES

~Start off with MakeupGeek Chickadee and Creme Brule on the crease taking it upward just below the browbone and across to the upper inner corner.

~So the same windshield wiper motion with MakeupGeek Country Girl all across but this time closer to the crease…take the shadow downwards to both the inner and outer corner

~Add MakeupGeek Goddess to both the inner and outer corners layering it over Country Girl (don’t completely cover it – Country Girl will be peeking through slightly)

~Add MAC Amber Lights to the center of the lid…spritz the brush with Fix + or any other mist or water  before applying the shadow to intensify the color

~With a more precise blending brush, take MakeupGeek Mocha and Corrupt and lighty start dabbing and blending in the outer corner taking it slightly up to the crease…don’t take too much in one go…layer it slowly until you get your desired intensity – Remember less is more!

~Add MAC Ricepaper to the browbone as a highlight

~Line your eyes with a gel liner and make a slight wing

~Quickly before the liner sets, take a pencil brush with a little bit of corrupt on it and start layering it over the liner, pushing it upwards as you go and smudging it

~ Tightline the upper lashline

~For the water line, I only added a black eye pencil on the inner and outer bit leaving the middle empty

~In the middle waterline add a gold eye pencil or Amber Lights eyeshadow

~On the bottom lashline do the same thing with a black eyeshadow on the outer and inner corner and MAC Amberlights in the middle

~Blend everything with a blending brush!

~Add Mascara on top and bottom lashesh and Falsies (Miss Adoro Demi Wispies)

WHEW that was a lot to explain! Hopefully I can start doing videos soon so its easier to understand! Fingers Crossed!

Warm Gold Holiday Makeup

holidaymakeup

 

Hello my bunnies!

T’is the holiday season and this time of the year is all about the glitz and glamour and GOLD! I love a warm gold smokey eye with a bold red lip and today’s post is all about that! I just bought the Nyx roll on shimmer in Almond today and the color really inspired me to do this look. Its much more shimmery then it’s showing up in the photos and it has some micro glitters as well. I’m quite impressed and might do a review once I get my hands on some more of these!
