Hope you all are happy and healthy.
Last Sunday we planned to go to Barbeque Nation for dinner with a few friends. This restaurant has very chic ambiance and amazing barbeque veggies and kababs, which I LOVE. I usually don't plan my makeup for such outings with friends in advance but the beautiful YouTube beauty guru Chloe Morello's clubbing makeup tutorial aired just at the right time. So, cutting long story short everything was well planned (oh yes, including the makeup, I do it sometimes) but the weather that day at plans otherwise. It was windy, a bit chilly and drizzling and we had the most amazing weather in Mumbai after a long time. And we wanted to enjoy the weather rather than sitting in an air-conditioned restaurant. So, at the last moment we cancelled the dinner at BN and instead decided to go for a long drive, as all of us were loving the weather.
I decided to give my make-up also a bit of twist rather a change at the last moment (my eyes were already done the moment we changed our plan) with red lips along with the eye makeup shown in Chole Morello's Clubbing makeup video. Red lips, because, however, we were enjoying the colder weather, but it was all gloomy and dark. Red lips seemed perfect to me and I think the look turned out quite well, and thought why not share with you all. Most importantly pictures turned out well than I expected, as the lighting that day was really pathetic for taking make-up pictures.
Here is the list of products I used for the look:
- Guerlain Parur Aqua Feel Good Foundation #23 & Nars Sheer Glow foundation in Stromboli
- MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC 42 for blemishes
- MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC 42 for under eyes
- MAC MSF Natural in Medium Dark
- Nars Blush in Amour
- Nars Bronzer in Laguna
- Dior Amber Lights highlighting powder - high points of my cheek bones, bridge of nose & cupid's bow
- Urban Decay Naked Palette - Sidecar, Naked, Virgin
- MAC Eyeshadow - Cordura & Carbon
- Clinique Gel eyeliner in True Black - blended using MAC Carbon and Cordura eyeshadows
- Inglot Black Kohl
- Rimmel Scandal eyes mascara - black
- MAC Lipliner in Cherry
- MAC Russian Red lipstick
Here are few close-up pictures of eyes and lips:
I hope you all liked the re-creation of the look with a bit of twist. What do you think about red lips on rainy days. To me, red lips are all time favorite, just needs to feel comfortable & confident about it. What say, red lips during rainy season - yay or nay? Which will be your favorite lip color during rainy days?
Have a wonderful week ahead.
Lots of Love
