MAC Shadescents Ruby Woo Perfume + Lipstick

MAC Shadescents Ruby Woo Lipstick

 

Hi everyone! The MAC Shadescents collection, which consists of 6 fragrances inspired by the most iconic MAC lipsticks, hits Indian stores on March 17th! They have relaunched the 6 lipsticks as well in a limited edition packaging and I have to say, the color-coordinated tubes looks really sleek and beautiful. There are 6 lipsticks (Rs 1500) and 6 coordinating perfumes (Rs 4500) in this collection – Heroine (purple, matte), Ruby Woo (deep red, retro matte), Lady Danger (bright coral red, matte), Candy Yum-Yum (bright neon pink,matte), Velvet Teddy (neutral nude, matte) and Crème d’Nude (pale beige, cremesheen). I received the Ruby Woo set for review. I am a HUGE fan of the lipstick so I was quite keen to try out the perfume.

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.

Festive Makeup for Durga Puja and Navratri | Gold Eye Makeup – Day to Night

 

Hey everyone!

Navratri starts in a couple of days and I had loads of requests to do a look for Durga Puja and the upcoming festive season! I’ve created a simple look that you can take from day to night with just a change of lip color. For the eyes, I used a rich bronzy gold eye shadow – MAC Amberlights and paired it with a bronze cheek, a neutral lip for the day time and a bright red for the evening! I kept the eyes richly lines with kohl, I love that look with Indian wear!

 

Hope you like the look! Don’t forget to leave your comments below!

This kind of look definitely works with Sabyasachi’s opulent outfits! I’m reminded of the Grand Finale at Lakme Fashion Week last year, the look was similar but this time, the eyes are much softer. MAC Lipsticks Diva and Ruby Woo are 2 personal MAC favorites (and the ones I used for my wedding reception makeup!) and its exciting to see these used on the models here.
