Artemis, the moon goddess .........look 2

My inspiration takes the next level.............when Artemis goes for the Winter solstice at Mt.Olympus. The makeup that she does look ever-ethereal in front of Zeus.......lets see what she used??


  • Chanel Base Lumiere Illuminating Makeup Base Rs.2600 approx.
  • Chanel Vilalumiere Aqua Foundation Rs.2670 approx.
  • Chanel Eclat Lumiere Highlighting Base Pen Rs.2100 approx.
  • Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre Rs.2670

Start with a luminous complexion. If you tend to be oily, stick to foundations that are matte yet impart an ethereal glow. If you have blemishes use Clinique Anti-Blemish Foundation Rs.1600 + Concealer Rs.1035 to achieve the perfect base. Its very important to looking glowing and not shiny to look like  Artemis. Apply Base Lumiere all over the face concentrating more on cheeks and other areas of the face that catch light naturally. Use a light coverage foundation to keep the look simple and beautiful. Apply concealer with light reflecting particles in the inner corners of the eyes to bring them out and look wide awake. To conceal facial issues and blemishes please use appropriate concealers for the same. Apply minuscule amounts of loose powder to allow the skin to peep through.


  • MAC Paint Pot in Rubenesque Rs.1100
  • Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio in Snow Shadow Rs.2100 (dark blue-grey/sky blue shimmer/white)
  • Dior Ultra Smoothing High Impact 1 color eyeshadow in Blue Declic Rs.1950 (light blue high impact shimmer)
  • MAC single eyeshadow in Motif (pink light duochrome) and Moon's Reflection (frosty light blue)
  • Chanel Exceptionnel Mascara in Noir Rs.1650
  • MAC Brow Fix Gel Rs.950 approx.

Prime the lids with a lid primer that has subtle pink pearl in it all over eyes concentrating at the lid and diffusing towards the brow bone. The idea of the makeup is to look ethereal and goddess like. With MAC 219 pencil brush apply dark bleu-grey eyeshadow from the trio on the outer corners and in the crease.Apply the same color in the inner corners and allow the creases to meet eachother keeping the middle of the lid bare. With tapered MAC 222 brush or Estee Lauder no.25 brush soften the crease blending towards the brow bone. This symbolises the midnight where as the silvery blue the moon. Use MAC Moon's Reflection eyeshadow on the entire lid packing the color on with MAC 239 brush and then blend with 217 brush upwards and side-wards. Use the same color in the inner half of lower lids merging the color with dark blue grey in a smoked up effect. Use Dior's shimmery blue in the inner corners to create contrast, on the middle of the lids and a highlight. To create a halo of color use MAC Motif over the brows and on the forehead for the goddess like feel. The last step in optional. Create batty lashes with Exceptionnel mascara and groom the brows.


  • Chanel Tweed Blush in Tweed Rose and Tweed Pink Rs.2500 each
  • Chanel Aqua Lumiere Lipgloss in Colibri Rs.1500

Dust the Rose shimmer on the cheekbones and Pink Shimmer on the apples, sides of the temples and T-zone. Finish with a pink-beige toned liquidy shiny lipgloss on the lips that mimics the reflection of moon in water.

So thats the look. Please volunteer if you want this look on yourself and many more. Mumbai residents preferred..............

Till then,
