FOTD: Festive make up look 1- Copper smokey eyes+coral lips (Quick tutorial)

Hey my lovelies,

Today I am here to share with you a festive make up look that will take you through the Diwali and the wedding seasons ahead. As you all know that the Durga puja is enormously celebrated in Kolkata for 4-5 long days so we, the Kolkata girls get a lot of excuses to wear different dresses and make up at different times of the day! In this post I am sharing one of the looks I created during this festivity. It is suitable for night time look and you can always switch your lip colour according to your choices.

Products used for the face

  1. Colorbar perfect match primer
  2. MAC select cover concealer
  3. MAC studio fix fluid foundation in the shade NC 41 + Lakme CC cream- bronze
  4. Maybelline dream lumi touch highlighting concealer in the shade honey

  6. Faces Glam on blush- Cocktail peach
  7. Miss claire eyeshadow- 0215 to contour
  8. Lakme absolute moon lit highlighter e
  9. Lakme absolute Sun kissed bronzer

Firstly, I primed my face and then I applied MAC select cover concealer on blemishes and thinly under the eye area as it has got the right amount of orangey tone that cancels out any darkness. I mixed CC cream with my MAC foundation to get the perfect shade for me. Then I applied the highlighting concealer under my eyes, forehead, along the bridge of my nose, chin to highlight those areas and contoured my cheeks and jawline with a brown eyeshadow which is 2-3 shades darker than my skin tone. To set the base I used a pressed powder. For blush I used a sheer peach blush to add a peachy glow. Lastly I added some highlighter on the higher points of my face like cheekbones, bridge of the nose, chin and cupid’s bow and a bit of bronzer to warm up the skin.

  1. Lakme absolute concealer and the same compact powder as a base for my eye make up (not pictured)
  2. Lakme eye shadow quartet- Desert rose (* shade)
  3. Maybelline The Nudes palette  (* shades)
  4. Loreal paris infallible eye shadow- Endless chocolate
  5. Maybelline gel eyeliner
  6. Revlon eyeliner pencil
  7. Maybelline fashion brow duo brow shaper in the shade brown
  8. Bourjois intense extrait eyeshadow 09
  9. Loreal paris volume million lashes mascara

For the eye make up I started applying a creamy concealer on my lid and then slightly powdering it as I did not have any eye primer. Then I applied a thick line of kohl along the upper lashline and smudged it. I used the reddish copper shade from the quartet all over the lid. Then I diffused and blended the colour into the crease with a medium brown eye shadow with a blending brush, defined the outer corner with a dark chocolatey brown shadow and highlighted the brow bones with a pinkish champagne colour. For the inner corners I used the same brow bone highlighter. I slightly extended the eye shadow work outward. I lined my eyes with a black gel eyeliner and winged it out slightly. I wanted my eye make up to be softer looking so I totally skipped using eye pencils on my lower water line  and only defined the lower lash line with a brown eye shadow. But you can always use your favourite kajal if you want. Then I curled my lashes and applied generous coat of my favourite mascara.

  2. Lakme absolute sculpt matte lipstick- Coral Flare
  3. Maybelline lip polish- Glam 4

I filled my lips entirely with a neutral lip liner, then applied a bright coral red lipstick. To soften the colour and give it a peachy tone I topped it with a peachy nude gloss.
