Revlon inspired ‘Contoured eye- bold lips’ look FOTD

Hi everyone!

Today I’m doing a contoured eye-bold lip look inspired by the look given by Revlon’s Gucci Westman for the Luca Luca show at New York Fashion Week. See the Luca Luca Look  HERE.

Summary of the look :

On a moisturized face, conceal required areas and apply full coverage foundation on face and neck. Blend well and set with powder. For the eyes, apply matte neutral eyeshadow all over lid and darker eyeshadow in crease and outer corner to define and contour the eyes, apply black liner on upper lash line , smudged brown pencil/eyeshadow on lower lash line and mascara on lashes. Define brows with dark brown eyeshadow. Fill in the lips evenly with the bold lip color with a lip brush.

Revlon’s Global Artist Director, Gucci Westman created a Fresh, Modern Look for the label Luca Luca at New York Fashion Week for their Fall 2011 collection.

Revlon’s Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman, paired a contoured eye with a strong lip for the Luca Luca Fall 2011 collection, bringing forth the designer’s vision of a forest fairytale filled with lush orange and okra hues.

“The look is about a fresh, modern girl on an adventure,” says Westman. “She’s refined, yet modern. I created an eye that is contoured but not overly done so the attention is focused on the bright, striking lip.”

Classic Red lips look with Revlon Colorburst ‘Crimson’

Hi everyone!

I’ve been doing more of subtle look lately so here’s a bold lips look with what else but the classic choice for bold lips..RED!

Bold lips in everyday wear look good with subtle eye and face makeup. It also makes a good combination with softly smoked eyes for a runway or themed look. Pair with neutral colors in clothing and accessories for best effect or at the maximum match with 1  piece of your attire- say shoes  or belt or bag.

Read my bold red lips tutorial HERE.

Summary of this look –

On a well moisturized face, conceal required areas, apply light foundation ( I have skipped foundation here) apply reddish cheek tint on the apples of the cheeks with a light hand. Set with compact or loose powder. Alternatively , if using a powder blush, apply compact first and then apply blush. For the eyes, lightly smudge brown eye pencil on lid close to upper lash line and kohl on water line. Apply suitable base on lips ( lip liner, concealer/foundation) and apply red lipstick using brush for precise application.

This is a quick look for summer days when you don’t have a lot of time for elaborate makeup or days when you don’t want to wear too much makeup and yet look presentable and glowing. I call this the Natural Pink look. The most important elements of this look are concealer and a natural pink blush. These 2 products alone can give a lot of lift and glow to the face.

Spring/Summer look #6 : Quick look with Bourjois lip/cheek tint

Hi everyone!

This is a quick makeup look I did using Bourjois  lip/cheek tint or Bourjois Rouge Hi-tech as the product is named.

Lip/cheek tints or stains are gel or water based products that can be used on the cheeks as well as the lips for a natural looking stained or ‘just bitten’ effect and are a great alternative to blush or lipstick/gloss. They set really quickly so they need to be blended in to the skin really fast. On application and blending, they sink into the skin and the color generally deepens over the course of next 2-3 min due to the body heat and the stain sets into a long lasting matte finish.
