Makeup Look : Bright Magenta Lip (Quick Look)

 

Hi everyone! Now that I’m back to work after a week of break, I’m slowly easing myself into wearing more makeup. I wore very little makeup when I was visiting my parents so jumping into elaborate looks seems too time consuming! I’ve been doing quick, easy looks the past few days. The easiest look to do when you want something quick yet striking it a bright lip. You can pair this with just kajal, thin liner or a winged liner. I personally love a winged liner as it lifts my eyes and always looks elegant.

This is the look I created today using the Lakme Absolute Matte Lip Tint in Magenta Magic as the focus of the look. Read on for the full list of products used.

What look do you go for when you have only 5 minutes to do your makeup?

[note color=”#FFE4C4″]I always go for a deep lip with a simple eye when I am pressed for time. A statement lip is much quicker than a statement eye and its something I personally prefer too. I just use Mascara on the lashes, maybe black liner and go for a fuchsia/berry/red lip color. A few dabs of concealer on the under eye, a little bit of foundation/Tinted Moisturizer to cover up my blemishes and blush (if I have some time left!). This look always works for me!

‘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.
