FOTD : Winged Liner + Peach Lips

 

Hey everyone!

I was testing out some new products for review including a blue gel liner from Rimmel and decided to do a super winged eye liner. Unfortunately, the blue liner doesn’t have the creamiest texture and it was really hard to get a clean wing using it. I switched to the newly launched Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen and completed the bold wing using that. To emphasise the wing, I wore some heavily flared false eye lashes and completed the look with peachy cheeks and a glossy peach-apricot lip. Interestingly, I didn’t use a single eye shadow for this look, a pretty rare occurrence!

What do you think of this look?

Stila Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss Nude Vinyl = Perfect Nude Peach Lip!

 

I am not a huge fan of nude lip colors and prefer something bright on the lips generally. But I love how the in shade Nude Vinyl shows up on my lips! Described as a medium pinky nude by the brand, its more of a peachy nude on my medium complexion and the color is just the perfect soft peach that is neither too washed out nor too bright! I love how pigmented it is (medium opaque, covers up my pigmented lips well) though the thick texture may not be to everyone’s liking. Full review coming soon!

Stila is available at Sephora, Delhi in India though I’m not sure if this particular product is carried in the store. I bought this as part of the 17 piece Give me more Lip Set ($59) from sephora.com online.

Shimmery sky blue eye makeup + FOTD

While winter trends were all about the smokey look for the eyes, spring trends bring us pastel shades in blue, green, lime ,coral and orange to play around with. With spring just around the corner, its time to get colorful !

Inspired by the runway makeup for Spring/Summer 2011  collections,  here’s a Shimmery sky blue eye makeup look using  Colorbar eyeshadow #007 Aqua Marine.

Here’s the final look

Shimmery sky blue eye makeup look

2. Colorbar eye shadow single #007 ‘Aqua marine’

3. Bourjois ombre stretch eye shadow #14

4. Maybelline chai latte quad (for crease color and highlight shade)

Products used for shimmery sky blue eye makeup
  • First, I applied and  smudged the grey pencil on the lids to give a base to the shimmery sky blue eyeshadow. Without a base it appears very light, almost silvery blue.
  • Next, I applied the shimmery blue shadow to the entire lid up to the crease after which I applied the dark blue eye shadow on the outer corner.
  • After applying the dark blue on the outer corner, I applied dark brown on the crease and blended it well with the blue shades.
  • Next, I applied the highlight shade on the browbone and blended it with the crease color.
  • To give a more open look to the eyes, I applied some of the shimmery blue shade in the inner corners of the eyes.
  • Next, I applied lots of kajal and smudged it on the lower lash line using a moist brush loaded with the dark blue eyeshadow.
  • Lastly, I applied winged black eye liner and finished the look with a coat of mascara.

For the perfect spring look, my pick for an outfit for this makeup look would be a simple white shirt, blue jeans with silver earrings. What outfit would you pair with this look ?
