How to coordinate makeup with outfit Vol 1 : Makeup looks to suit every outfit

Hi everyone,

I’m starting a series of posts on How to coordinate makeup with outfit after receiving requests from a few readers. While starting out with makeup, I myself struggled with coordinating lip colors, eye makeup and blush with the outfit and the occasion. It seems overwhelming at first but a little knowledge about colors and practice over time makes it easy as you go along.

This is just a basic guideline for those starting out with makeup , who find themselves at a loss on how to coordinate colors and clothes and end up either making a makeup blunder or wearing the same makeup over and over again.

In Volume 1 of this series of posts, I’m doing a few looks that can be worn with any outfit.

Hope you find this useful 🙂

1. Neutral Smokey eyes and nude lips

A basic smokey eye using neutral shades like brown, grey, khaki or even black for a dramatic look , paired with nude lips and blush.

Sonam Kapoor in Vivienne Westwood and Masaba at Cannes 2011

Hi everyone!

As most of you know, Sonam Kapoor made her debut at Cannes Film Festival this year in a  white and grey Jean Paul Gaultier gown.

View pictures of her debut dress and makeup HERE.

While the first look was a bit disappointing, her look in a Royal blue Vivienne Westwood creation for a L’oreal photoshoot more than made up for it!!

The Body Shop Vitamin E Face mist REVIEW

Hi everyone!

Today I’m reviewing a product that has become a staple in my everyday makeup routine. My skin goes through cycles of normal /combination/ oily and dry weather or AC environments tend to dehydrate my skin especially around the nose and mouth. Generally after applying compact I would notice some dry patches of my face but skipping compact would make my skin oily after some time.

To solve this problem, I used rosewater spray on my face after completing my makeup (by filling up rose water in an empty Lotus Basiltone spray bottle). That did help to some extent but I’d generally end up with more than required rosewater on my face. I almost bought MAC Fix+ on visits to the MAC Store many times but couldn’t bring myself to spend Rs 800 on a facial mist! Finally, I picked up this cheaper alternative to MAC Fix+ from The Body Shop on a recent visit home with my Mum.
