Heavy kohl lined eyes with red lips FOTD

Hi everyone!

Few days back one of the readers AD asked me if heavy kohl lined eyes would look good with red lips with reference to the eye makeup worn by Kareena Kapoor in Kurbaan.  I tried the look today and I quite liked the effect! Thanks AD!

The kohl looked heavier and darker than how it is appearing in the picture.

‘Barely Feline’ look: Quick makeup with cat eyes and nude lips

Hi everyone!

Today I’m doing a cat eyes- nude lips look that can be worn in the daytime or evening and takes under 10 minutes to do. The only skill required is eye liner application to do the ‘cat’ eyes to add some oomph and drama to an otherwise regular look.  Apart from the eyes, the  look is very clean, fresh and simple with nude gloss and a hint of bronzer, hence I call it the ‘Barely Feline‘ look.

Cat eyes have been in trend for quite a while now and are a favorite with celebrities like Angeline Jolie, Taylor Swift, Rihanna to name a few. Pair it with nude lips or a dramatic pout, either way cat eyes give a glamorous touch to the face.

Summary of the look :

On a well moisturized face, conceal required areas and apply light foundation, set with powder. Using liquid/gel eye liner, apply thick line on upper lash line and wing it outwards and  upwards (as shown). Apply kohl starting from inner corner all the way to the outer corner and join it with the wing to frame the eye. Apply nude natural pink gloss and a little bronzer under the cheekbones for a perfect summer look.

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.
