Products used for the FACE :

  1. Lakme CC cream : Bronze [base]
  2. Clinique Blended Face Powder : 03 Transparency [powder to set]
  3. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick : Bronze [cheeks]
  4. Shiseido Bronzer : 03 Dark [to contour]

I started by applying a thin and even layer of the Lakme CC cream all over the face and neck using my fingers to apply and blend. I then layered a little more of the CC cream in the areas that needed extra coverage – jawline, nose and around the mouth. To set it, I used Clinique loose powder. To give a glow to the my skin, I used Bobbi Brown shimmer brick all over my cheeks as blush + highlighter. The melange of soft gold/bronze/champagne shimmer adds a gorgeous glow to the skin! Lastly, to add some definition to my jawline and cheekbones, I used a light dusting of the Shiseido Bronzer.

Products used for the EYES :

  1. Inglot Rainbow refill : 107R [all 3 shades]
  2. Lakme Absolute Ultimate Kohl [waterline+upper lash line]
  3. Inglot sparkle no.56 [inner corner highlight]
  4. L’Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes
  5. Clinique Even Better concealer : Orange Brightener [under eyes]
  6. Ben Nye concealer wheel [under eyes]

I created a soft smokey eye using matte brown eye shadows. I started by smudging some kohl along the lash lines and then used the darkest shade from the Inglot refill all over the lid and lower lash line. To blend out the edges, I used the 2 lighter shades of eye shadows. To add a little pop, I used a gold sparkle from Inglot on the inner corners. Finished the look with 2 coats of L’Oreal Volume Million lashes mascara.

For the under eyes, I first applied the Orange brightener from Clinique. On top of it, I layered 2 shades of concealer from the Ben Nye concealer wheel to get perfect coverage.

Products used for the LIPS :

  1. Guerlain Maxi Shine – Gloss D’Enfer : 441 Tangerine Vlam

This is a gorgeous medium coverage orange gloss that contains fine sparkle. The sheer formula makes it very wearable and it adds a nice pop of color to the otherwise neutral look! I love the non-sticky formula, it feels absolutely amazing on the lips! Will review it soon. It reminds me a little bit of Revlon Colorburst lip gloss Papaya! (Papaya is more coral, less orange)

  16. Hey Ankita, you look great. Could you do a step-by-step tutorial for this look. I really want to try this out. πŸ™‚

  17. Hi Ankita! I have been following your blog for quite sometime and it’s really is helpful in improving my make-up skills given that I am quite a novice in this field..And you do look very beautiful in this particular look.Just a query,I quite like tangarine and orange shades but I have quite full lips and I’ bit apprehensive about trying them out.Do you think that orange vlum lipgloss you used for your look is going to suit my looks?I really love that colour and the way it is suiting you..

    1. This will definitely work for you! You’re lucky to have full lips πŸ™‚ But if you feel uncomfortable because glossy textures do make the lips look fuller, you can go for a matte/satin tangerine lipstick instead.
