A dramatic and colorful eye makeup tutorial on how to apply makeup for Karwa Chauth 2014
Karwa Chauth is a celebration every married woman looks forward to. Applying gorgeous mehndi, choosing an anarkali, lehenga or saree for this auspicious occasion brings back memories of the day a woman gets married. So here is a gorgeous eye makeup tutorial on how to apply makeup for Karwa Chauth 2014.Step 1: I started by applying the Bobbi Brown stick foundation all over the face and spread it evenly with a sponge. I did not dampen the sponge as the texture of this foundation is very creamy and spreads really well with a dry sponge.
Step 2: To contour my face, I used Benefit’s Hoola with a Sigma Angled contour brush and applied it over the hollows of my cheeks and a wee bit on the chin area.
Step 3: To add a hint of color to the cheeks I used B&D blush in a peach shade and swept it upwards on the cheeks with the Real Techniques blush brush. This blush has a slight golden sheen to it, hence I did not apply a highlighter separately.
Step 4: Now for the eyes, I first applied an eye primer – Benefit’s Stay Don’t Stray with a Sigma flat shader brush all over the eyelids.
Step 6: Complementary colors look lovely on the eyes. Hence on my orange outfit, I chose a turquoise/sea green eye shadow, Surf USA by MAC (Limited Edition) and applied it all over the lid, below the crease line with a Sigma flat shader brush.
Step 7: As a transition color, and to help blend the blue shade better, I used a light pink color from the BH Cosmetics 2nd Edition palette with the MAC #217 blending brush.
Step 12: To add some structure to the face, I filled in my eye brows with a matte brown shadow and a Vega angled brush.
Step 13: MAC Smolder was used as a kajal to line the waterline.
Step 14: To help draw a basic eyeliner, I used the liquid liner by Sephora.
Step 15: Finally I curled my lashes and put on some fake ones too. If you are not used to wearing false lashes, I recommend that you apply a generous coat of mascara so that your original lashes look like fake ones 🙂
Step 16: As the last step, I used MAC Mocha lipstick to go with the color of the outfit I was wearing.
