Let's brighten up a gloomy rainy day with some fun make-up!

Hello Everyone,

Sorry for being my absence for more than a month now.

After a long time, I did bright make-up today, just to add some brightness in a gloomy rainy day. Oh yeah, it was very gloomy and rainy here in Mumbai today!

Products Used:

  • Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer in Dark
  • MUFE Matt Velvet + Foundation #55
  • MAC Mineralized skin finish in Medium-Dark
  • MAC blush in Pinch o'peach
  • MAC Bronzer in Refined Golden to contour
  • MAC Paint Pot in Painterly to prime the lids
  • MUFE eyeshadow #6, medium purple shade
  • MUFE eyeshadoe #92, dark purple shade
  • MAC Shimmermoss, mint green shade
  • MAC Lucky green, lime green color with golden sheen
  • MAC Prance eyeshadow (LE), shimmery sliver-mauve shade
  • Coastal Scents 28 neutral palette, pale pink shade 
  • MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack, black gel liner 
  • Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencil Zero
  • Revlon Grow luscious mascara in Black
  • MAC Lipglasses in Cultured and Pink Poodle 
Here is the stepwise tutorial to get the look:

  • Step 1: Start with priming your lids with Painterly Paint Pot
  • Step 2: Apply MUFE eyeshadow #6 using MAC 224 brush in the crease and blending it toward the browbone 

  • Step 3: Apply pale pink shade from Coastal Scents 28 neutral eyeshadow palette under the brows using the same MAC 224 brush. Apply that medium purple shade again if the intensity of shade is lost.

  • Step 4: Apply MUFE eyeshadow #92 in the outer V using Sigma E30 brush and blend using MAC 224. 

  • Step 5: Apply MAC Shimmermoss using MAC 239 brush on the outer half of the lid. 

  • Step 6: Apply MAC Lucky Green in the remaining inner half of the lid using other side of the same MAC 239 brush. 

  • Step 7: Apply MUFE #92 under the lower lash line using MAC 214 brush. Line the inner rim you eyes using a black eyeliner (Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Zero) and apply a thin line of black eyeliner on upper lash line (MAC Blacktrack)

  • Step 8: Apply black mascara on you both upper and lower lashes (Revlon Grow luscious mascara in Black) and apply MAC Prance eyeshadow in the tear duct using MAC 219 brush. 

Here are a couple of more pictures of the look.
