Warm Orange and Copper Toned Eyes with Contrasting Fuchsia-Magenta Lips

IMG_8146

Hello Hello!

So as you can see today’s look is perfect for your weekly grocery run and everyday chores – so natural and simple NOT! Haha didn’t mean to shock you guys there but just checkin to see if ya’ll are paying attention! So actually as you can tell from the photo and the title of this post that this look is a bit unconventional using contrasting tones on the eyes and the lip. I love the look of clashing colors especially the contrast between warm orangey tones versus really cool toned pinks. I’m quite pleased with how this came out and ofcourse it’s not everyone’s cuppa tea and that’s completely okay – makeup is art and all about experimenting and that’s what I love about it!

1. After priming my lid, I mixed a matte lighter yellowish orange shade and a deeper more true orange shade (Makeup Geek Chickadee and Inglot 383) and applied it all over the upper crease in a windshield wiper motion with fluffy crease brush. You have to make it as blown out as possible.

2.  I decided to apply a little bit of a matte yellow shade (Inglot 323) just on top of where I applied the orange colors and blend it out. Then I applied Anastasia Beverly Hills Morocco, which is a warm terracotta brown, on my crease with a denser crease brush. I swiped it from the outer to inner corner of the crease.

3. Once everything is nicely blended out, I applied Makeup Geek Foiled eyeshadow in FlameThrower, which is a super shimmery copper with a foiled finish, on my lid. I dampened my brush for it to get maximum intensity. Then I blended out the edges for a seamless transition with the crease colors.

4. Then I applied Anastasia Deep Plum on both my outer and inner corner to darken these areas and blended upwards towards the crease. Blend Blend Blend – go ahead and apply a little bit more if you have to at this point.

5. For more dimension, I applied a pop of shimmery orangey gold (MAC Melon pigment) on the centre of my lid.

6. I highlighted my brow bone and inner corner with a pale shimmery gold shade (Anastasia Legend). I lined my waterline with a gold eye pencil. On the bottom lashline, I darkened the outer corner with some Deep Plum and then placed Melon pigment in the middle and Legend on the inner corner. Blended it all out with Chickadee and Inglot 383. I curled my lashes, applied mascara to top and bottom lashes and then applied falsies : Koko lashes in Risque.

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.

HIYA MY BUNNIES!

I was just experimenting with the Sleek Sunset Palette today and came up with this look. The lighting killed me as there was barely any sun at my end and the photos really doesn’t do justice to the actual intricacy of the eyes. I wanted to upload it anyway and share the details with you all! 🙂

EYES

~After priming my lid, I started off with Makeup Geek Chickadee on the outer crease with a fluffy brush

~Then with a slightly denser crease brush, I applied Inglot 383 (matte orange) on the crease

~Then I applied the shimmery orange shade from the Sleek Sunset palette (refer to photo above) on both corners of the lid keeping the centre bare

~ Then I mixed the two shimmery terracotta shades and applied it with a crease brush on the outer and inner corner of the lid taking it slightly to the crease (inner crease aswell) and blending out the orange shade

~I applied the gold shade from the palette with a wet brush on the centre of the lid

~Then with a more precise crease brush I applied MAC Hepcat and MAC Fig. 1 to the inner corner and outer corner of the lid blending out *make sure it is precise enough not to overpower the shadows on the inner corner

~Then with a pencil brush I applied Makeup Geek Corrupt (matte black) on the outer corner and slightly upward to the crease

~Then I took MAC Hepcat and Fig. 1 once again on the same crease brush and blended the black out

~I applied MAC Brule (matte cream shade) on the brow bone

* if there are any harsh lines make sure to go back and blend everything out

~I applied Australis Grape Cake eye pencil on my waterline and slightly on the lower lash line

~blended it out with a pencil brush and MAC Hepcat

~I applied the gold color from the palette on the tear duct area

~Then with a crease brush, I took Inglot 383 and blended everything on the lower lash line

~I lined my upper lash line with MAC Blacktrack fluidline and made a wing

~I darkened the line with Physicians Formula Eye Booster eye liner pen

~I used Maybelline Falsies mascara on the top and bottom lashes and then added false lashes (KOKO lashes in Ariel)
