Karwa Chauth is a celebration every married woman looks forward to.

So here is a gorgeous eye makeup tutorial on how to apply makeup for Karwa Chauth 2014.Makeup for Karwa Chauth 2014 37Makeup for Karwa Chauth 2014 03Step 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.

This blush has a slight golden sheen to it, hence I did not apply a highlighter separately.

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.
