Look of February….

With the spring on its way and weather getting warmer (wonder how cold it was in Mumbai but still feels so) I feel I should do a look for February that is an array of colors neatly put together. Luckily my canon camera found its USB and I could take the picture of the products that can be used to do this look. I'll also give options of finding duplicates to certain Mac limited edition products as you wont find them in the store if you feel like doing this look. Now the only thing is looking for a model on whom I could do these looks and post it on the blog. Maybe one day that would happen too.

I called it as "February Fantasy" and let us see what we need to do this look.

Not in the picture: -
  1. MAC prep n prime face primer with SPF 50 PA++
  2. MAC Studio select concealer
  3. Bourjois Jet black eye pencil
  4. Clarins Instant Light eye primer

  1. Max Factor second skin foundation
  2. Oriflame Urban Shield foundation
  3. Shiseido Luminizing Powder trio as per the choice of colors according to skin coloring.
  4. MAC Powder blushes in Tippy (Blue pink satin blush), Emote (Muted brown matte blush) and MAC Mineralize Grand Duo blush in Love Rocks (Golden pink/Lavender pink with gold veining) with duplicated Tippy = Coygirl
  5. Lancôme Color Focus eyeshadow in Bikini Green (Neon green with yellow shimmer) with duplicate of Bikini Green = MAC Bitter
  6. MAC mineralize eyeshadow in Fresh Green Mix
  7. MAC Single eyeshadows in Cool Heat (teal with multi colored pearl), Sushi Flower (Peachy pink satin duo chrome), Smut (brown with burgundy pearl), Dark Edge (neutral brown), Gorgeous Gold (yellow green duo chrome)
  8. MAC Lipsticks in Nouveau frou (light lavender sparkle), MAC Fafi limited edition , with duplicate Lipglass in Totally It
  9. Mac Dazzle Glass in She-zam
  10. Shiseido Lipgloss in G5 Chianti Rose


On a cleansed face, apply a face primer for a flawless finish with the foundation. Apply eye primer on the eyes so that the shadow stay put longer and do not crease. Apply a tiny dot of MAC studio select concealer in the under eye area and blend it to perfection. This look needs flawless under eye area as we are using blues that could make the under eye are look darker. Dot and blend a liquid foundation on the entire face and layer it till you achieve a flawless canvas. For this begin with Oriflame urban shield foundation over the entire face and then use Max Factor second skin foundation on the highlighting areas of the face to create three dimensional effects. Dust with a fluffy powder blush Luminizing Powder trio for a glowy finish to set the foundation and concealer.


For a healthy flush of color apply Tippy on the cheek bones blending diagonally upwards near the temples to create a mini face lift. Begin with less as you can build on later. Apply Emote which is neutral brown matte blush in the contour areas of the face that is in the hollow of the cheeks towards the sides of the forehead, sides of the nose (if needed) and in the perimeter of the face. With a fan brush dust golden pink shimmer from Love Rocks.


Trace a dark black eye pencil on the upper lid from outer to inner corners. With a dome shaped smudge brush, smudge it into the lash line to give an illusion of fuller lashes. Mix Smut and Dark Edge in the outer corners and the lash line and blend it into the crease in the half way of the lid. In the inner half of crease apply Sushi flower and blend it upwards towards the brow bone. Highlight the brow bone with Gorgeous gold, dusting it with a flat eyeshadow brush. On the entire upper lid apply a mixture of Fresh Green mix and Bikini Green to give the lids a neon yellow green halo using a eye shadow brush. In the inner corners apply more of gorgeous gold eyeshadow to open up the eyes. Over the lower lid, just near the water line trace a thin line of black eye pencil and smudge it. Over the black eye pencil on the entire length of the eye lid smoke out Cool heat eyeshadow. Apply several coats of False Lash Effect Mascara for gorgeous lashes. Comb the brows and set them with a brow gel.


Mix Nouveau Frou and MAC Fafi limited edition lipstick to get a duo toned light lip color. Blend with fingers on the lips. Try not using a lip liner and create a stain of the lipstick. This is to get a muted lip in contrast to strong eye makeup. Coat the lipstick with Chianti rose lip gloss and on the centre of the lips apply She-zam which is a silvery lipgloss with pink and lilac glitter.

Try out this look and let me know what you think about it…

Till then,
