Fresh Rainy Makeup…the Thunder Cloud

I love to do these seasonal looks using colors that adorn the season. And rainy season is not far from all this. Rainy season is all about aquas with shimmering colors and lots of greys and blacks that epitomize thunder clouds……..these cumulonimbus clouds are my inspiration for this makeup look today.

  • Estee Lauder Color Correcting Primer in Lavender Rs. 1280
  • YSL Touché Éclat Rs.2150
  • Chanel Pro Lumiere Foundation Rs.2760
  • Shiseido Translucent Setting powder Rs.1950

Prep face with glob of moisturizer 5 minutes before makeup application for the makeup to glide and blend better. I like Estee Lauder's Color Correcting Primer as it brightens up sallow complexions and brightens it. Plus it's a fantastic base for makeup to sit on. Take a dime sized amount and smoothen primer all over the face in gentle dabbing motions and then blending in downward and outward directions. Use the tiniest amount of foundation just to even out skin tone. Pro Lumiere foundation adds luminosity to face without making it oily and greasy. Start from the T zone and blend it outwards and downwards, some on the cheeks towards jaw line and hair line. Luminizing concealer like Touché Éclat hides and reveals much more luminosity of the face. This product knows to highlight the areas of face in the sun and moon and in the rains too. Just some clicks and your near to a very glamorous look coming ahead. I use touché éclat in the under eye area, sides of the nose, on the top of cheek bones, sides of lips etc. Do remember to choose the color that flatters your skin tone. Set with white translucent powder that goes colorless on face.

  • Estee Lauder Signature blush in Rose Nuance Rs. 1950

With a fluffy blush brush dust the darker shade of the blush in cheek hollow blending it into the temples in round motions. With a fluffy fan brush dust the highlighter on the height of cheeks for a well structured and subtly contoured look

  • MAC Paint pot in Painterly
  • Clarins Mono eyeshadow in Thunder Grey Rs. 775
  • MAC Single eyeshadows Rs.900 each in Phloof, Electra, Stars N Rockets, Moth Brown (LE), Thunder (LE)
  • Clinique Quickliner for eyes in Really Black and Grape Rs.990 each
  • Clinique High Lengths Mascara in Black Rs.1075
  • Clinique Instant Lift for Brows in Deep Brown Rs.1095

With a concealer brush apply Painterly all over the lid upto brow bone. This is beige toned non-creasing cream to powder eyeshadow which also works as wonderful eyeshadow base and is good in waterproofing the eye makeup. With flat fluffy large eyeshadow brush dust Phloof on brow bone. Trace Really Black on the upper lash line and blend with small dome shaped smudger brush to push the color into lash line. Apply Grape on the outer half of lower lid and again blend outwards till it meets the black on the upper lid. With crease brush gently blend Thunder Grey into the crease. Make sure you take less as this eyeshadow is really pigmented and more the pigment more pronounced would be the smoldering effects. With flat medium eyeshadow brush apply Thunder in the outer corners, Stars N Rockets in the inner corner and with fluffy brush just dab in Moth Brown blending the gap in between the inner and outer corners. To create the look of rain cloud blend Moth Brown up and above in the mid- crease till the brow bone. This also creates ultimate French Glamour with a twist. For the effect of lightning apply Electra in the inner corners.
Sweep two layers of new Clinique High Lengths mascara and groom the brow in Deep Brown to compliment the look.

  • Shiseido Perfect Rouge Sheer in Pout Rs.1450
  • Shiseido Luminizing Lipgloss in Cool Rs.1450

Keep the lips understated by dabbing Pout on lips and add a dash of clear lilac gloss in Cool to enhance the pout.

This makeup is exclusively for Rainy season parties. Do try it and let know.

Till then,
