Makeup Look: - Sun and Rain

August and September is all about hide and seek between the sun and the rains. This look is inspired by their playful behavior.

  • Clarins Instant Smooth Perfect Touch Rs.1650 approx.
  • Clinique Superbalanced Makeup Rs.1550
  • Clinique All About Eyes Concealer Rs.1300
  • Clinique Blended Loose Powder Rs.1600
  • Clinique Blushing Blush in Precious Posy (bright peach orange with pink nuances……..more on the coral side) and Bashful Blush (reddish bronze with subtle pearl) each Rs.1550

Begin with freshly moisturized skin and sunscreen if you are going out. Apply Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch on the T-zone and cheeks for a matte base for the foundation to spread on. With stippling brush apply Clinique Superbalanced Makeup foundation all over the face in one layer to create a sheer base that makes skin look flawless. The coverage is buildable and you can go a little more in the problem areas of your face. Gently dab Clinique All About Eyes concealer in the under eye area to diminish the look of under eye circles, thanks to the yellow tone in the concealer. I prefer using a concealer brush as it spread the concealer evenly and goes into even the tiniest areas where fingers maybe difficult to reach. Plus it is proven that concealer brush applies 700 times less pressure in the under eye area compared to fingers according to a study. This would keep the under eye wrinkles to minimum. Set the base makeup with a pinch of loose powder that is mineral enriched and does not clog pores but does diminish the appearance of pores. Dust Bashful Blush in the contours of face i.e. hollows of cheek very subtly with a fluffy blush brush and then dust Precious Posy on the cheek bones and apples for a radiant summery coral glow.

  • Clinique Quickliner for Eyes in Really Black Rs.990
  • Benefit Lemon-aid Lid Correcting Primer Rs.870 approx.
  • Clarins mono coleur eyeshadow in Midnight Blue Rs.820
  • MAC eyeshadow in Expensive Pink (Golden Peachy-pink shimmer), Embark (Matte Red-brown with intense pigmentation), Nylon (Beige-bone shimmer), Gorgeous Gold (duo chrome yellow-green shimmer), Contrast (deep blue with purple nuances), Rs.820 each
  • MAC Pigment in Golden Lemon Rs.1250 approx.
  • MAC Opulash Mascara in Black, Rs.850

Apply Lemon-aid Lid Correcting Primer with taklon eyeshadow brush all over the eye lid to keep the eyeshadow sticking better. Trace the upper lid and the inner rims with Really black for a smoldering beginning and a dark base for the lashes to look enhanced. With dome shaped eyeshadow brush apply Midnight Blue in the outer corners of the upper lid and lower lid with MAC 219. Blend this blue in the outer part of the upper lid crease. Over this lightly blend Embark in the crease blending towards the brow bone with MAC 224. Highlight brow bone with Nylon using Christian Dior Large Shader Brush as the brush is soft, fluffy and blends the color better. On the outer third of the eyelid apply Contrast blending towards the crease. On the lid apply Expensive Pink with MAC 217. In the inner corners of the upper lid and lower lid upto the inner third apply Gorgeous Gold with Shiseido Eyeshadow brush (Small). In the inner corners dab some Golden Lemon pigment with MAC 219 brush. Apply several coats of Opulash Mascara to get those smoldering lashes.


  • Clinique Butter Shine Lipstick in Cinnamon Stick
  • Clinique Superbalm moisturizing lipgloss in Mango

Apply Cinnamon Stick lipstick which is coral gold with glossy finish and end up with some Mango lipgloss in the centre of the lip.

This look might sound complicated but its fun doing it….so do try it and let me know.

Till then,
