Copper/Black eye makeup TUTORIAL

Hi everyone!

Today I’m doing a  Copper/Black eye makeup tutorial using Chambor eyeshadow trio #85 Mystic. I wore this look in my previous post HERE and Neha requested me to do a tutorial for the eye makeup.

This is a very simple look and I have used all shades from the Chambor ‘Mystic’ trio i.e lid color, crease color and browbone highlight shade.

This is for you Neha, hope you find it useful!

List of products used :

1. BeYu eye base

2. Lakme rose powder

3. Chambor eye shadow trio #85 Mystic

4. Lotus Herbals kajal

5. Maybelline black gel eyeliner

6. Maybelliner colossal volume mascara

7. Faces eyeshadow brush, angled brush, Q-tips

Products used Copper/Black eye makeup tutorial

Step 1- Moisturizing and priming

  • I used my regular Neutrogena oil free moisturizer which I use all over face on my eyes as well so that the lids and under eye is properly hydrated. If you use specific cream for your lids/under eye area, you should use that here.
  • Next, I have applied BeYu eye base which brings out the color of eye shadows and helps them last longer too.
  • After this I have applied loose powder all over my lid so that blending becomes easier. I am using Lakme rose powder.

  • After dusting a little amount of loose powder all over lids using a fluffy brush, pat copper eyeshadow all over the lid ending at the crease.

Step 3- Grey/Black eyeshadow

  • Next, take a small amount of the the grey/black eyeshadow and pat it 3/4th of the way on the crease and on the outer corner making a horizontal ‘V’ as shown.
3- apply grey shade to crease and outer V

Step 4- Blending

  • Blend using a fluffy brush along the contour of the eye (in the crease,taking it slightly above) and on the outer V. Take a small quantity of loose powder on the brush, pat it on the area to be blended and then blend with a light hand in a to-and-fro motion.

  • Take the golden highlight shade and apply in under the brow from the highest point of the arch outwards till the end of the brow.
  • Blend it with the crease color using more loose powder.
5- apply browbone shade

Step 6- Clean up excess

  • Clean up the excess in the inner corner using moistened q-tip.
  • Clean up the outer corner along a line joining the outer corner of the eye to the outer end point of the brow as shown.

Step 7- Apply a LOT of kajal

  • Apply a lot of kajal on your waterline.Let it be enough to run out beyond the water line to the lash line.
 

7- apply a LOT of kajal
  • Now using an angled brush or smudging brush, pick up a little bit of the grey black shade and smudge the kajal on your lower lash line. Extend it outward at the outer corner to form a wing.

  • Clean up any excesses with a q-tip.
7- smudge it with the grey eyeshadow using angled brush

Step 8- Inner corner

  • Apply the same highlight shade used on the brow bone to the inner corner of the eye. This will instantly brighten up your eyes.
8- apply highlight shade on inner corner

Step 9- Apply liner and mascara

  • Apply winged eye liner on the upper lash line and top off with lots of mascara. Make sure to apply mascara properly on the outermost corners as this gives definition to the eyes and can easily get ignored.

You can apply eye shadow/eye pencil to define your eye brows .

My pink lipsticks : Swatches + FOTDs

 

Pink is a color close to every woman’s heart.  When it comes to lipsticks, the shades and hues that this color comes in are endless! -baby pink,  bubble gum pink, coral pink, rosy pink, tea rose pink,  fuchsia pink, , ruby, carmine, magenta..the list goes on. While some of us like to stick to nude pinks, some like their pinks deep and daring like fuchsia and magenta. Whether you are 16 or 60, fair or dusky, at least one of pink’s many avatars will complement your skin tone and give that ‘glow’ to your face.

I was always apprehensive about wearing pink lipsticks and for a long time the only pink in my vanity case was Revlon Colorburst ‘Rosy Nude’ which is a universally flattering muted earthy pink.  Recently, I experimented with more shades of pinks and here is my collection-

FOTD using MAC Blue Brown pigment

 

Hi everyone!

Here’s a look I tried using MAC Blue Brown pigment for the first time.  Blue brown pigment is a duo chrome pigment from MAC with a reddish brown base and reflecting teal shimmer. I bought it as part of a 5 pigment set named ‘Smokey Thrillseekers‘ from the Tartan Tale collection.

It is the most interesting pigment of the set and it produces a beautiful dual reflection effect. It can be used with different bases to bring the different hues of this pigments- brown/nude to bring out the browns, black/blue to bring out the teal shimmer. I have used it with black base by smudging Revlon crayon pencil on the lids before applying the pigment.
