Fresh Summer Looks Part 2 :- Strawberries and Bananas

This is a summer inspired look and the colors are vivid enough to compliment summers. The name "strawberry and bananas" as those are the group of colors i am inspired by for the look.

Lets see how we do it…….


  • YSL matte touch makeup primer Rs.2300 approx.
  • YSL Teint Parfait complexion enhancer Rs.2350 approx.
  • YSL Touché Éclat Rs.2150
  • MAC Studio Fix Foundation powder Rs.1585

Prep and prime the face with a mattifying primer to combat shine and oiliness. The look is about bold and bright colors and it is best seen on matte complexions as it does not look over done. Use the complexion enhancer in a C shape from the sides of the forehead to apples of the cheeks for a sheer iridescence. Try avoiding liquid foundations as they can be really tricky these summers and stay to a basic concealer and compact. Use an iridescent concealer to hide under eye circles and apply a smidgen of Studio fix powder for an overall coverage and matte effect.


  • Shiseido Accentuating Stick in Rosy Flush Rs.1900 approx.
  • MAC Sheertone blush in Dollymix Rs.1080

Blend the cream blush stick on cheeks before applying the compact powder. After dusting the powder, in circular motions apply this bright pink-red blush on cheeks to mimic healthy flush. You don't want to overdo it and look like a clown so exercise control. Use a Dual fibre brush like MAC 187 or Inglot 27E to blend the blush instead of using a natural hair blush brush.


  • Shiseido Luminizing Satin Color eyeshadow in Solaris Rs.1550
  • Shiseido hydro powder eyeshadow in Lemon Sugar Rs.1550
  • Clinique Color surge single eyeshadow in Twiglet Rs.1050
  • MAC single eyeshadow in Sushi flower and Da'Bling or Lala Rs.820 each.
  • MAC Pencil eye liner in Teddy bear Rs.920
  • Clinique High Impact Curling mascara in Black-Brown Rs.1075

Use the hydro powder eyeshadow as a base on the entire eye lid and little bit on the brow bone with MAC 252 brush or fingers. Define the crease with MAC 224 brush using Twiglet (taupe brown) just for a gentle crease. Do not over do or else you could look like a drag. Use this vibrant satiny YELLOW eyeshadow starting from inner lid to the middle of the lid gradually blending into duo-chrome pinkish at the outer corners and the lower lid with Estee Lauder eye shader brush Rs.1020. Highlight the inner corners and brow bone with an iridescent pink opal eyeshadow. Line the eyes with black brown eye pencil and also trace the inner rims with the liner. Apply several coats of curling-lengthening-volumizing mascara on the upper lids and just define the lower lids.


  • Clinique Butter shine lipstick in Pink toffee Rs.1025
  • MAC Dazzleglass in Love Alert Rs.1100

This lipstick is actually a lipgloss in a stick. It gives this lovely strawberry stained lips and looks gorgeous yet subtle. Just dab the lipstick and blend the color onto lips with fingers.

This is a very easy breezy summery look and worth trying.

Till then
