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.

Dark Lip Look on Indian Skin | Tutorial

 

Hi everyone! Dark, vampy lips have been a huge trend this season and I’ve always been a little skeptical about whether I could pull off a deep, dark lip color. I finally experimented a little and found some lip shades that worked for Indian skin. Its all about balancing the bold lip with the right neutral, defining eye makeup and fresh complexion. Dark lip colors can draw out the color from the face, so a rosy blush on the cheeks helps a lot in bringing the look together. I would also suggest plum or burgundy based lip colors instead of greyish or bluish tones as they are more flattering. Hope you find this tutorial helpful!

 

 
Lipcolor is ColourPop Ellarie Lip Pencil paired with Dukes Lippie Stix. I ordered the lip products from the ColourPop website and used a forwarding service to get it shipped to India. It’s a convenient and secure way to get products shipped from overseas to India. They basically give you a US address (if you’re shipping from the USA) where you can get packages delivered from any US retailer. They then combine all your packages and ship it to your Indian address. You can pay via credit card or COD. The charges are slightly on the higher side as compared to USPS and the website could do with some upgrades but overall, its the safest way and quickest way to get brands that are not available in India. Check out ShipOutFromUSA.com to know more about how this works.

One Brand Tutorial with Lakme | Video

 

Hi everyone!

A few months back, I started a One Brand Tutorial series on my YouTube channel and after creating looks using Maybelline, MAC, Natio and Clinique, I’ve done a look using all Lakme products.

I really like the colors they come out with, be it lipsticks, eye shadows or foundations because their shades always work really well for Indian skin tones. In this video, I’ve created a festive look that would work for all special occasions!
