Pastel Mélange……………..

Pastels come to everyone's minds when summer comes. Pastel shades are very flattering and the colors just know how to keep cool in this scorching summer heat. Pastels in makeup give face a serene touch of breeze and waters in summer season. This is an art nouveau pastel makeup look that is as fresh as the face that would be doing it.
Lets see how we do it,

  • Oriflame Urban Shield Foundation SPF 15 Rs.398
  • Oriflame Giordani Gold Mineral Loose powder Rs.850
  • Bourjois Anti-cernes Pinceau concealer Rs.520
  • Shiseido Makeup Pre Makeup Cream Rs.1650 approx.
  • Shiseido Luminizing Satin Face Color in Petal (Light Pinky peach) and Carnation (soft pink) Rs.2500 each

Prime the face after a skin care ritual to get a flawless canvas for the makeup to sit upon. Dot on Oriflame Urban Shield foundation on face and blend with fingers or foundation brush. Always start from the centre of the face going outwards and downwards in short criss-cross strokes. The foundation contains Rhodocrisite extract that does not allow pollution to enter into skin. Dab concealer as required to hide under eye imperfections and also on the sides of the nose to beat blotchiness and flakiness. Set the foundation and concealer with mineral loose powder and apply a little more on the t-zone to combat excess oiliness and shine using fluffy powder brush. Smile and brush on a soft pink blush starting from cheek apples to the temples. I like to apply blush in rounded strokes so that there are no harsh trails left behind using a fluffy blush brush made with natural hair. Dust on light pinky peach blush over the heights of the cheeks, on the bridge of the nose, on forhead and chin. Keep the highlighter minimal so that it does not give an oily sheen.

  • MAC Paint Pot in Rubenesque Rs.1050
  • Clarins mono eyeshadow in Vibrant Violet Rs.775
  • Bourjois Effet Smoky pencil in Deep Purple Rs.320
  • Clinique Color Surge soft shimmer in Toasted Almond and Rose Pebble Rs.1050 each
  • Shiseido Hydro-powder eyeshadow in Languid Lagoon Rs.1550
  • Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Care mascara Rs.520 approx.

Apply Paint pot as eyeshadow base for eyeshadows to rest longer on the eyes. Trace the upper lash line with a deep purple eye pencil and smudge with pencil brush. Apply vibrant lilac eyeshadow all over the lid upto crease using flat eyeshadow brush. To get maximum impact press the iridescent eyeshadow onto the lids instead of giving wash of color. Apply rose pink eyeshadow in the crease for a subtle contour and to balance the vibrant lilac eyeshadow and blend it upto the brow bone with dome shaped crease brush. On the brow bone dust neutral beige eyeshadow with subtle shimmer. Trace purple eye pencil on the water line (if required). On the lower lids blend butterfly blue cream to powder iridescent eyeshadow for maximum impact and dash of color. The cream eyeshadow gives entire makeup a watery effect and looks amazingly glamorous. Wiggle lash roots with volumizing mascara for drama and keep the lower lashes minimal.

  • Clinique Long lasting lipstick in Violet berry Rs.1025
  • Clinique Superbalm moisturizing lipgloss in Lilac Rs.950

Dot and dab pinkish violet lipstick as a stain on lips and dab on some lilac colored lipgloss.

This look is as wonderful to see as to read about it. So try it out and send in your pictures. You may win a surprise makeup product you have always craved to have and it may be one of the products mentioned above.

Till then,
