Sparkling freshwater blue make-up tutorial!

Hello Everyone

Hope you all are happy and healthy. 

I have been really slow in posting these days. The reason being BAD natural lighting as it rained throughout the past week. I highly depend on natural light for taking my pictures, so all the pictures that I took last week were absolutely gross and not worth posting. Today, however, was bright and sunny throughout the day and I squeezed out some time to do a make-up tutorial. This look is very bright and fun, inspired by sparkling & crackling fresh water. 

Here is a list of products used to create this look :

  • Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation #24 Beige Ambre (Review here)
  • MAC Pro Long Wear Concealer in NC42 (Under Eyes)
  • MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC42 (Blemishes)
  • MAC MSF Natural in Medium-Dark
  • Nars Bronzer in Laguna 
  • MAC Powder Blush in Pinch o'peach
  • MAC Cream Color Base in Hush 
  • MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre
  • MAC Eyeshadows: Freshwater, Shimmermoss, Humid, Shroom, Reflects in Transparent Teal 
  • Lancôme Kohl in Love in Deepwater Blue (review here)
  • Clinique Gel eyeliner in True Black
  • Maybelline the Falsies Mascara
  • Combo of MAC Lipglass - Cultures, Lychee Luxe & Pink Lemonade 
Here is the step by step tutorial to get the look: 
  • Step 1: Primed my lids using MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre 
  • Step 2: Apply MAC Freshwater eye shadow on inner and outer third of the lids
  • Step 3: Pack MAC eye shadow in Shimmermoss in the center of the lid
  • Step 4: Blend Humid in the crease 

  • Step 5: Apply the three eye shadows under the lower lashline

  • Apply 6: Lancôme Kohl in Deepwater Blue in lower water line and tightline upper water line using Inglot Black Kohl
  • Step 7: Highlight the inner tear duct and brows using MAC eye shadow in Shroom
  • Apply 8: Apply black liner on the upper lash line and finish the look with couple of coats mascara
  • Step 9: Pack Reflects in Transparent Teal in the center of the lid and in the inner third of lower lash line. The reflect applied on the lid takes the look to different level and makes it very sparkling. 

Here are few more pictures of the whole look: 

I hope you all liked the look. This is kind of over the top look, you can decide for yourself where you would like to wear this look. 

Have a lovely week ahead. 

Lots of Love

  7. I am a fan of your winged liner Eesha!!! i know i have said this like 100 times but really can't get enough of it! super gorgeous! you are using mac pro long wear foundation in nc42 under eyes? how do you like that foundation? i too was matched to the same shade and I really loved how it looked but confused between studio fix fluid and pro long wear..any suggestions?

    1. Hi Parita... thank you so much. I made mistake there Parita. I am so sorry. I am using Pro Long Wear Concealer in NC 42. Its amazing, you know. I have used both the foundations and did not like either. Studio Fix was still better, but, Pro longwear just refused to blend well.
