Lightning strikes!!

This look is all about getting to another level of drama. Its keeping the entire makeup subtle and dewy and suddenly there's a burst of an electric purple liner, just the way lightning strikes through clouds. Using taupes and neutral fleshy colors makes the purple even more vibrant than worn alone.

To do this look,


  • Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer
  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
  • Clarins Instant Light Perfect touch concealer under eyes.........also try the new pen like concealer from Chambor whose reviews I read recently.
  • MAC Prep + Prime Finishing Powder


  • Shiseido Perfect Rouge Glowing Matte in WINK


  • Clinique Quick liner for eyes in Really black to trace the upper lid and lower lid. Blended with a small dome shaped eyeshadow brush,
  • MAC Creme Royale eyeshadow used as highlighter on brow bone.
  • MAC Smut applied as "3" on the outer corners.
  • MAC Satin Taupe used on the entire eye lid upto the crease and creating its reflection on the lower lid.
  • MAC Pigment in Pink Opal in the inner corners.
  • NYX Studio eye liner in Extreme Purple winged on the upper lid and also blended at the lash line of the lower lid.
  • Brows groomed with transparent mascara.
  • Clinique Lash Power Mascara in Black Onyx on the top and bottom lashes for lengthening and curling.

This is an easy look with a dash of dramatic purples.

Hope you like it!
