For eyes –
I finished applying my base makeup first and for that I used a face spray (The Body Shop Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz) as my skin was feeling dry and parched. Next, as a moisturizer I applied an illuminating cream (MAC Strobe cream). For a ‘not-so-heavy’ foundation look, I chose to use a cream foundation (MAC Studio Tech NC 30) and then to conceal areas that weren’t covered by the foundation, I applied a tiny bit of concealer (Kryolan FS22) under the eyes. Then I moved on to contour the cheeks (Inglot pressed powder 31), applied a peach blush (B&D No.9) and finally added a shine on my cheekbones (B&D No.10) as a highlighter.
Step 1: I began the eye makeup by applying a nude eye shadow (MAC Cork) all over the eyelid with the help of a fluffy dome shaped brush.
Step 2: Next, to define the crease line a little bit further, I blended a matte brown shade just into the fold with the same blending brush.
Step 3: If you are a beginner in drawing a winged liner, I’d suggest that you apply scotch tape on either side of the eyes as this will work as a cue for the wing.
Step 4: After the tape was applied I traced a thin line (the wing) at the edges on both sides and then took the brush slowly inwards and filled into the gaps. Finally I curled my lashes and applied mascara to the upper and lower eyelashes.
Step 9: To make the red stand out even further, I applied a red lipstick (Lakme Enrich Satin 359) over the red pencil previously applied.
If you are one of those girls who loves gloss, go ahead and apply some over the lipstick for that extra shine! And this is what the final look was like with the gloss on–
