  • Oriflame O beauty blush in Pink
  • Max factor Color perfection lipstick in rosy pink

How to do it: -


On a primed face, use a foundation just where needed so that it gives a flawless canvas without looking heavy. I like cream to powder foundations as they five a smooth finish. Use concealer wherever needed especially in the inner corners of the eyes and around the sides of the nose. Dust a colorless translucent powder gently so that it gives a dewy finish but sets the foundation better. The main focus of the look is a bright skin so use less powder.


Create an under eye guard by dusting some powder with a fan brush in the under eye area to catch the eyeshadow fall outs. Prep the eye lids with a primer so that the eyeshadow glides better. I also like a long wearing cream eyeshadow as it holds the product better. Line the upper lash line with a black pencil and blend with MAC 219 brush so that it stains the lashes and creates a base for the other pencil liner. Trace a turquoise liner over it and blend it into the black to create a gradation of color. Over the lower lids draw a violet or grape colored liner and blend it with a pencil brush again so that no harsh lines are seen.

Over the brow bone apply a pink-gold highlighter. Define the crease with a medium brown to bring out the eyes. Liberally dust silver shimmer with chunks of silver in it over the eye lid and be careful of the fall outs. Then use a black eyeshadow with navy blue shimmer on the outer corners of the upper lid just near the lash line. Take a deep purple and apply on the outer corners of the lower lid just near the water line. Dust a bright turquoise eyeshadow over the eye pencils that we have traced and blended starting at the lash line and covering only half of the lid and not all over the lid. It can look very trashy otherwise. Smoke out a bright lilac eyeshadow over the traced eye pencil on the lower lid.
Sometime bright colors can make the eye makeup look lost. So trace a ultra thin line using a gel liner in black color just near the upper lash line to define the lash line. You can wing out the liner to make it look like from 80s.

Apply curling, lengthening and volumizing mascara for very glamorous lashes. On the lower lashes apply less mascara to maintain the youthfulness of the makeup. You can curl your lashes while the mascara is wet to set the lash curls.
Comb the brows and set with a brow gel if needed.


Smile and blend a rosy pink cream blush on the cheeks for a lived in effect and a rosy flush. Use a champagne colored shimmer cream blush over it for a dewy effect. Dust very little amount of sheer tone fuchsia blush over the cheek apples to set the cream blush from getting streaky. With a fan brush dust some iridescent powder over the cheek apples, t zone and over the brow bone.


Use the same cream blush over the lips. You can also use a creamy satin rosy pink lipstick. Blend the pigments into the lips and give it a stained look. Apply some lilac pink colored gloss over the centre of the lips to create a fuller pout.

Apply a shimmery turquoise glitter liner over the upper lids and in the inner corners of lower lids to make it appear flashy and edgy.

This look is very good for girls but with some nips and cuts everyone can sport this look. I wish I'd a model to show how the look looked. But the step by step instruction is sufficient right now.
