Sunset makeup look!

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all are happy and healthy. 

This is probably the craziest look I have ever done, with ton of different shades and I tell you its full on! I don't think I would dare to wear this look out, ever. But, I thought this was such a fun thing to do such bold looks, and I am sure there are many of you out there who would love to wear such bold looks. A big thumbs up to you guys. Also, I create such looks just to practice and enhance/ improve skills and tricks. 

Products used to create this look: 
  • Chanel Perfection Lumiere foundation (Review here)
  • MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC 42 for blemishes
  • MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC42 + Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder #2 under eyes
  • Chanel Horizon de Chanel blush (LE, Review here)
  • MAC Cream Color Base in Pearl on the high points of my cheeks
  • Nars Laguna Bronzer for contouring 
  • MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot
  • MAC eye shadows: Heritage Rouge Pigment (Pro), MAC Reflects Blackened Red (Pro), Sketch, Brick Red, Rule, Chrome Yellow, Solar White 
  • MUFE eye shadow #92 and Metal Powder #1 (yellow gold) 
  • MAC Fix+
  • Urban Decay 24/7 eye liner pencil in Zero 
  • L'oreal Super Liner Pen in Black
  • Maybelline the falsies mascara (mine is quite old, hence those lashes look clumpy and not as nice I would want them to)
  • Chanel Rouge Allure Flamboyant 

Here is the step by step tutorial on how I did the look: 
  • Step 1: As always primed my lids using MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot
  • Step 2: I started with the crease work with MAC eye shadow in Red Brick using MAC 222 Brush

  • Step 3: Mixed MAC eyeshadows Rule and Chrome Yellow on fluffy MAC 224 brush and applied it on the brow bone. Mixing the two colors would create a nice transition. 

  • Step 4: Created a wedge shade with MAC sketch and then blended it into the crease to create a V shape using MAC 219 brush. 

  • Step 5: Applied black liner in the inner rim of the eyes. Applied it before smudging eye shadow in the lower lids to get a nice blended look. You will see the effect in the next step. 
  • Step 6: Smudged MUFE eye shadow #92 under the lower lash line about 2/3rd way in using MAC 219 pencil brush connecting with Sketch eye shadow in the outer V. 
  • Step 7: Applied Heritage Rouge pigment all over the lid 
  • Step 8: Applied Reflects Blackened Red pigment wherever I applied Heritage Rouge pigment. The beautiful effect of glitter is not captured in the picture. It looks very mesmerizing. 

  • Step 9: This is the most fun part of the look and takes the drama to another level. I wet the MAC 209 brush using Fix+ and applied the MUFE Metal Powder #1 in the inner corner of the lower lash line. 
  • Step 10: Highlighted brows using MAC Solar White Eyeshadow. I think also applied a little bit in the tear duct. Remember very vaguely. Also, applied black liquid line and winged it out. 

  • Step 11: Finish off the look with couple of coats of mascara and remember to separate clumped lashes (if any), which I didn't do here! I also filled in my brows using MAC Brun Eye shadow and set them in place with MAC Clear Brow Gel. 

Here are couple of more pictures of the finished look: 

I hope you all liked the look. Do you like wearing such bold looks? I definitely would want to, but, I would not want to be stared at. You know what I mean, right? LoL.. 

Have a lovely weekend ladies and gentlemen. 

Lots of love
