The Cyber Party

The 'future of makeup' inspires me. Films like Robot and 2050 (whatever) or space-age films like Starwars and all have always enticed me and I usd to love the themes of different characters in these movies and series. Their futuristic makeup is what kept me enthralled the most.
The theme of today's post is a robot woman who is partying and socializing and having a blast. She's painting the electronic circuits red..The look is also inspired by 60s and 70s disco and one of the collections of Gucci by Pat Mcgrath.

Btw, please ignore the small baby lashes that you can see. I have been having a tough time getting mascara on them and they just go wobbly and lopsided all the time.
Anyways, lets see how to do this look.....

I used my favorite Urban Decay 15th anniversary palette to create this look.

The highlights of this look are :-
  1. Fresh and transparent looking glowing skin.
  2. Healthy flushed cheeks
  3. Dewy lips
  4. Disco themed eyes with a futuristic wing and a strong brow.

Due to lack of sleep and lots of stress, I ended up with real bad dark circles which need help.

Concealed and primed the lids. The concealer is not too heavy and makeup is in its transitional phase with the flash too strong, thence it may look a bit heavy now. But the results of makeup would be completely different. That is one of the reasons I do not advice applying a lot of powder or a powder shield in the under eye area. It can look too dry and parchment like.

Prime the eye lids heavily as you do not want the eyeshadows to budge and stay put longer in your desired way. Plus it also corrects any unevenness on the lids.

Apply JUNKSHOW on the inner half of the eyelid with a flat eyeshadow brush

Apply HALF TRUTH on the outer half of the lid and the crease in an oval shape. To create this shape I used Urban Decay Good Karma eyeshadow brush (any concealer brush would do a good job to create the shape). The defined edges gives this look a rock chic effect.

Apply OMEN where the pink and the purple eyeshadows meet. This is to add texture and radiance to the look. It creates an overall 3 D effect.

With a flat eyeshadow brush, complete the perimeter of the oval shape with EVIDENCE eyeshadow. It adds a depth and a hint of mystery to the look. Plus these colors are the colors of midnight and look really gorgeous in the party lights.

Apply MIDNIGHT 15 eyeshadow in the inner corners to brighten up the eyes.

I increased the size of the oval globe to make the eyes look even more appealing. 

It may look like a creature from your favorite computer game or a creature from the deep sea...but NO! its just your eye. With an angled brush and BLACKOUT eyeshadow apply the liner on the lower lash line with the shape shown in the picture. (It is hard to describe and can be learnt with visual representations only). LOL

Extend the black line diagonally with DEEP END eyeshadow to create a gradient of colors. 

Fill in the brows lightly. Curl the lashes and apply 3 coats of Bourjois Volume Glamour MAX Definition mascara only on the upper lashes.

And here is the finished look. I put in some JUNK SHOW eyeshadow on the brows for some fun without making it too obvious. Dewy and glowing cheeks can be with a cheek stain or a gel blush. And the lips are drenched in glossy shine to compliment the strong eyes and dewy skin.


  • Lancome Teint Idole Silky Mat 18 hr lasting foundation
  • Clinique All About Eyes concealer
  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish compact
  • MAX Factor Miracle Touch Blush in Soft Pink and Soft Murano
  • Clinique Chubby Sticks in Super Strawberry 
  • Chanel Levre Scintillante Glossimer in Desir
  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance eyeshadow primer
  • Urban Decay 15th Anniversary palette LE. Colors used were Junk show, Half Truth, Omen, Evidence, Deep End, Midnight 15 and Black out.
  • Shiseido Eye lash curler
  • Bourjois Volume Glamour MAX Definition mascara
Also is a must watch video from Max Factor UK featuring the amazing celeb makeup artist Caroline Barnes and her take on soft dewy makeup. So say bye bye to heavily powdered face and embrace the dewiness even if you have an oily skin (opt for oil free soft and semi matte foundations, like the one I used in this tutorial.)

Hope you enjoyed this post.
