On the face I first applied my moisturizer (Suncros Aqua gel) and applied a cream foundation (MAC Studio Tech NC35) with the help of a sponge making downwards strokes and blending away. Areas that were not covered by the foundation were concealed with just a little bit of concealer (Kryolan FS22). I contoured my cheeks (Inglot Pressed powder), applied an earthy toned blush (MAC Earth to Earth mineralize blush) and highlighted my cheekbones (B&D Highlighter no.10). If you’d like to achieve the same look, follow these easy steps —
Step 1: I used an eye shadow base (B&D) all over my eyelids first. I also applied some on the lower lashline as 2 eye shadow shades will be used there.
Step 2: Next, I applied a matte light brown color (MAC Cork-shade no.1) on the crease area as a transition shade that will help make blending super easy.
Step 3: Moving on to the actual application of color. First I applied a green shadow (MAC Humid-shade no.2) on the outer 3/4th of the eye. The inner corner that was left empty was filled in using a pencil brush and a copperish-bronze shadow (MAC Woodwinked-shade no.3). Finally to add the smokiness to the look, I used a matte black (MAC Carbon-shade no.4) on the outer corner edge of the eye and blended all the 3 shades with a blending brush.
Step 4: To highlight under my brow bone I applied a shimmery off-white color (MAC Gesso). Just at the crease (where the eye fold appears) I used a matte orange color (MAC Orange-shade no.5) to help blend out all the colors.
Step 5: Then I applied my favorite kajal pencil (Faces solid black) on my waterline.
Step 6: To intensify the eyes even further, I used the same copperish (MAC Woodwinked-shade no.3) color in the inner tear duct area and the green (MAC Humid-shade no.2) on the outer 3/4th of the lower lash line with a pencil brush.
Step 7: I used the same kajal pencil (Faces) to draw a liner as I did not want a very stark line since the look was all about keeping the eyes smokey. Pencil liners also give you more playtime – meaning you can blend, rub, draw different lengths to them without much effort and pains. I used an angular brush to smudge out the line and create a small wing at the outer corner.
Step 9: To add some shape and structure to the face, I styled my brows with a matte brown eye shadow (MAC Embark-shade no.6) and an angular brush.
Step 10: Moving on to the lips. I lined them with a pink lip pencil (MAC Dervish) and applied a nudish-pink lipstick (Clarins Peach Sorbet) and topped it with some shimmery lip gloss (MAC Dazzleglass Hi-Falutin’).
