Makeup Look : Plum Eyes with Matte Red lips


Hey everyone!

For Day 4 of the September Daily Look Challenge, I did a soft matte smokey plum eye with a deep brick red lip. After yesterday’s chic elegant wedding look, I wanted to try something a little dramatic! I used the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 palette to create this gradient plum eyes (love the mattes in this palette!). And for the lips, I used only the NYX lip pencil in shade Deep Red to line and fill in the entire lip. The NYX lip pencils are fabulous (and very affordable) and I just bought loads of shades so you’ll be seeing more of those.

    Love tat lip color,pls suggest some powder highlighter and bronzer

    • September 4, 2014 / 8:17 pm

      For highlighter, you could try the new Revlon Cheek Highlighting palettes. For bronzer, Sleek is a good option if you can order online. A lot of brands don't have bronzers in India. Lakme has the Moon lit highlighter which has a bronzer on one side which is good but very pigmented so be careful while using it. Always have the option of MAC and if you are willing to spend a bit, Shiseido bronzer is really good!

      Hi Supi, its hard to get matte only palettes. Best thing would be to custom create your own palette. Inglot has the freedom system where you can pick your own shades and create your own palette. Sleek has some good mattes in the Au Naturel palette and they ship to India.

      • September 8, 2014 / 12:52 am

        Thats great. Thanks. I'll try out the inglot. It's available here 🙂 🙂

    Hi Ankita,

    Lovely combination. Can you plz suggest an affordable yet branded matte eye shadow palette which v can buy here in India

    • September 7, 2014 / 10:50 pm

      Hey Archana, mattes are difficult to find in India in pre made palettes. I'd suggest making your own palette from Inglot – they have a huge range of shades to choose from.

    September 6, 2014 / 7:02 pm

    Love the lip color!

  31. September 7, 2014 / 7:01 pm

    hey ankita..the pictures in this look are all looking a bit powdery….is it the camera setting? otherwise your pictures turn out really well 🙂 A matte red lip is such a classic makeup look!

    • September 7, 2014 / 10:52 pm

      May be my camera setting. Or I may have over powdered. Looks the same on my screen though 😛
