3 Party Looks for Indian skin | Video Tutorial

 

Hi everyone! As the year comes to an end, holiday season parties are on everyone’s mind. I’ve been really into doing party makeup looks these past few weeks and here are 3 of my most recent videos for some party makeup inspiration. I love a red lip as it instantly brightens and lifts the whole face. To give a little party spin to a classic red lip-winged liner combination, I added a thin silver liner with the black. This look is really striking, definitely party-worthy and quite easy to do. You don’t need any eye shadows for this look! I used my favorite red lipstick – MAC Ruby Woo for this look. If you haven’t been keeping up with the news, MAC is now available at Nykaa.com 🙂

Red Lips or smokey eyes may not be everyone’s cup of tea. For fans of a nude look, I did a soft gold party look last week which pairs a soft brown lip with a gold eye. To add a little festive spin to it, I used a gold pigment over the eyes, with a soft cut crease. Winged liner always looks pretty and I made sure to use a generous bit of highlighter on the cheekbones for a golden glow.

For those who love the drama of a black smokey eye, this sparkly smokey eye look would be perfect! I generally don’t do black smokey eyes as they can be difficult to pull off but I loved how the silver pigment added some sparkle and shine to a flat smokey eye. To keep the focus on the eyes, I used a neutral blush and warm nude lip.

FOTD : Berry Lips, Messy Curls

 

Hi everyone! I’m usually one for sleek hair but I tried out a more textured, messy look today and thought I’d share the breakdown. In terms of makeup, I went minimal on the base, liner/lashes and concentrated on color – both on the cheeks and lips. I quite like how the final look turned out, a lot more natural and fresh. Read on further for the products used for this look.

FOTD : Indian Festive Makeup Look

 

Hi everyone! Wish you all a very happy Rakshabandhan! Today I created this festive Indian makeup look using deep chocolate and wine tones. I had a couple of new products to try out (items I picked up from the Nykaa Freedom sale) and thought of doing a dramatic traditional look. I created a soft smoky eye using the Makeup Revolution Chocolate Vice palette and finished out the eye look with an ultra glamorous pair of lashes. For the cheeks, I kept it simple a neutral, bronzy blush and completed the look with a matte wine lip using the LA Girl Flat Matte Pigment Gloss.
