September is rolling in, and this will be the first time I won’t be going back to school. But the few of you who are going back to school, it must be a lot of excitement. New clothes, new books, new start! But what I miss the most about school was the freedom to wear whatever kind of makeup I pleased. Especially ridiculously fun colours on my eyelids. Now, however, they are a thing of past, but good thing I have a blog about makeup, so I don’t really need a justified reason to go crazy with my eyeshadows.
For foundation, I used Make Up For Ever Face & Body foundation in # 34, as it is an extremely natural foundation. I like using this for look as it photographs well too, but mostly love it for its easy melt in your skin quality, in the best possible way. Lately, I have been obsessed with contouring, as I feel it makes a hell of a difference on my round face. I use powder bronzer, mostly, and 9 out of 10 times it is theBalm Bahama Mama.For blush, I believe I wore NARS Luster Blush, a very easy going light peach/bronze. Over all, I like the base as it is there, but not too busy.
If you have overpowering makeup on the eyes, I feel its best to play it safe in a not too nude, not too bright pair of lips. Going either way is rather distracting and destroys the whole look. My all time favorite easy, pretty lipstick is Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Roomiest Rose. On my complexion, it is an incredibly soft shade with a reasonable amount of punch in shade. I highly recommend!
I, obviously, chose to have some fun with the eyes. Yellow eyeshadow is something I thought I won’t be caught dead in, but I clearly thought wrong. I picked up a couple of Inglot eyeshadows a while back while traveling and Inglot 103 R was one of them. I initially wanted to use it as an eyeliner, but it didn’t work out too well. SO I said enough of this and patted it on the entire lid. And then, I used Inglot Matte Eyeshadow in 379 , a midtone matte purple for cut crease. I didn’t want to blend too much because I wanted there to be a distinct contrast between two shades. You can do that with any choice of colours you like, it is not too hard to replicate, in fact, quite easy. The trick is to keep the rest of your makeup very easy on the eyes. I lined my lower lash line with Revlon PhotoReady Kajal Intense eyeliner + brightener in Carbon Cleopatra. Finished off with a single coat of Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara.
