Ramp to Regular…….Miu Miu

Miu Miu, the prêt-a-porter brand of leading designer Prada, is not only known for their eccentric and glamorous clothes but also for their out of the world makeup looks. This all thanks to makeup magician Pat McGrath who has conjured up another genius trend for Miu Miu fall 2010 rtw collection.
I am going to do a makeup look that can be sported on a normal day and something that does not look too dramatic.


  • Clarins Instant Smooth Perfect Touch Primer Rs.1450
  • Shiseido Stick Foundation Rs.1900 according to skin color
  • Shiseido Accentuating Stick in Glistening flush Rs.1800 approx.
  • MAC Prep n Prime finishing powder Rs.1250
  • Bourjois Anti-cernes Pinceau concealer Rs.520

Start with a beautiful canvas by using skin smoothing primer especially on the oily areas of the face. Apply stick foundation by making strokes across the face and blend with foundation sponge or with fingers. Use a brightening concealer to highlight under eye area and bridge of the nose. Apply illuminating stick on the heights of cheek, above the Cupid's bow and where ever skin needs illumination. I like a beige shimmer like the accentuating stick to give a watery effect on the cheeks. Dust the colorless finishing powder to set the makeup and not add any more color on the face. The canvas is bare with just glistening shine as the highlights are the eyes.


  • Givenchy Magic Kajal liner Rs.950
  • MAC eyeshadows in Orange, Tete-a-tint and Samoa Silk Rs.820 each
  • Clarins mono eyeshadow in Vibrant Violet Rs.775
  • Clinique Lash Power mascara in Black Rs.1075
  • MAC Brow set Rs.920
  • MAC Brow Gel Rs.750

Use the illuminating concealer as eyeshadow primer so that they eyes don't look heavily made up. Smudge and blend a chubby black kajal pencil on the upper lids just near the lash line. The waxes in the kohl allow the eyeshadow to look very vibrant. Let the pencil set on the eye lid as it would blacken the bright color if blended too early. Meanwhile fill in eye brows and tame them into the perfect natural shape. Over the eye lid upto the brow apply Tete-a-tint, flesh colored eyeshadow. Highlight the brow bones with Samoa Silk eyeshadow. On the eye liner blend Orange eyeshadow with a pencil brush or small dome shaped eyeshadow brush. On the lower lid apply Vibrant Violet which is an electric lilac color with intense shimmery effect. Apply lengthening mascara to get vertiginously long lashes.


  • MAC Lipstick in Taupe or Touch

Blend a flesh colored or taupe colored nude lipstick on the lips. Opt for a satin finish without a hint of shimmer to keep the lips muted and complimenting the bright eye makeup.

Sport this look for a brunch or at a disco night. It suits any occasion except something formal. Try it out….

Till then,
