FOTD : Purple Smokey eyes, Bright Pink Lips


While the ‘rules’ of makeup dictate you shouldn’t wear smokey eyes and bright lips together, I like wearing this combo sometimes. If the right shades are chosen, I think the smokey eyes-vivid lips combination can look quite stunning!

In this look, I’ve worn a smokey eye using the gorgeous blackened purple eye shadow Round Midnight from MAC Glamour Daze collection along with a vibrant warm pink lip using Bourjois Sweet Kiss lipstick+MAC lipglass combination. Read on for full list of products ~

[note color=”#FFE4C4″]I’ll be reviewing the Revlon Foundation and the MAC Glamour Daze collection products very soon so please hold off your queries till I write the full reviews. I know many of you are curious about the Revlon creme foundation πŸ™‚

This is my first FOTD with my new camera, I have hardly realized the potential of the camera but I hope you can see that the images are much better! [/note]

  1. Hi Ankita
    I couldn’t help noticing the improved health of your hair πŸ™‚
    Coming to the look it’s so pretty even I love smokey eyes with colored lips.
    By the way is it the 1st FOTD with new cam?? πŸ™‚
    The lighting seems good

    1. Hey Vish, I think its the flash making the hair look glossy πŸ™‚ It may also be the Park Avenue Beer Shampoo which I used in my last wash!

      Yes this is the new cam, used flash here.

  2. Absolutely stunning FOTD for the new year!! Love your lip color. Missed your posts:) have a beautiful year ahead ankita.

  3. And btw the front profile is lovely. Seeing this profile for the first time in ur FOTD:) the lipstick reminds me of colorbar over the top.

  4. oh my Ankita πŸ™‚ ive never seen u look more beautiful ! u look stunning πŸ˜€ is it the new camera or the revlon foundation or some other reason for the amazing glow on ur face πŸ˜‰ ? n i loved the MAC e/s its gorgeous πŸ™‚

    1. I guess its everything together. I’ve been taking care of my skin so its in good shape and the camera is great as well πŸ™‚

  5. Love, love, love this look. The eyeshadow is such a gorgeous colour. I wonder how I’ve never noticed it before. And yes, the Gorgeous Genius does it again…bends the rules and pulls off a look not many would dare to try…and looks stunning doing it πŸ™‚

  6. You look radiant and flawless πŸ™‚ And love the combination of smokey eyes with pink lip colour…
    Waiting for the foundation’s review.. I’m hearing it’s pretty good..

  7. You know your post has come at the right time. i was thinking of trying out this combo for a wedding I had to attend. But thought will look too dramatic.

    Now I am encouraged to do so πŸ™‚

  8. Hi Ankita,

    You look stunning!!!

    Please also review the Garnier BB Cream and as you said Park Avenue Beer Shampoo.

  9. lovely pic Ankita…Must say everything suits on you as you do it in such a classic way…and I so wish even I could wear colored lenses but due to power in my eyes its just not possible..sighhh πŸ™
    But anyhow everything looks perfect and the camera is also amazing.
    Pls tell me a dupe of the lipshade in any cheaper brand.

    1. hey Mansi, I have power too and I wear colored lenses all the time. You can easily wear them!

      If you’re looking for a bright pink, you can check out Maybelline Hooked on Pink, its not a dupe but its a nice bright. Hooked on Pink gloss is very pretty too.

  10. I realized t’s ur new camera in action d moment i saw d second pic(from the start)! the difference is immediately noticeable and images have come out b’fully! looking fwd to more gorgeous pics! n yes, i dont even have to mention it, u look stunning! m eyeing dat revlon whipped for long, myt as well pick it up! πŸ™‚

  11. OMG this is wonderful. I was just browsing youtube for a smokey eye to pair with a fuschia lip and then I open corallista for my usual dose of your blog and I find this. Yay…. just what I wanted.

  12. Apart from the lovely makeup….. ur face looks more chiseled due to all the hard work you have put in your diet and exercise regime!!! Awesome.. πŸ™‚

    1. THank you Priti! Though I’ve been very lax and indulgent in the past few days, I’m hoping it hasn’t undone all the past hard work! Your comment is very reassuring πŸ™‚

  13. Anks, It was after so long that i really picked up something from MAc collections persay. I loved the glamourdaze collecton, I got 3 extradimesnsion eyeshadow, lipglass impossibly sweet, 1 fluidline. The lipglass is very versatile and goes with all lippies &everything!!!!!
