Festive Eyelook for Diwali


Diwali is one of the most important festival in India. Festivities are planned on scale similar to Christmas. Everyone plans on food, gifts, party etc but few beauty crazed people think about the makeup they would be wearing for Diwali party 😉

And this is what I plan to do, a warm jewel toned eye look

Final look 1

I started with NARS Smudgeproof as the primer, followed by MAC Tan pigment all over the eyelid. Since I don’t get to use MAC pigments on regular basis, this was a good chance to have some play with them. It’s a beautiful rose gold colour.

Step1 MAC Tan Pigment

As the next step, I applied MAC Blue Brown pigment in the outer 2/3rd part of the eye. There was fall out but it can be minimised by using a flat dense eye brush. This is such a gorgeous pigment , beautiful duochrome. In this look, since I have used a rose gold color as base, the pigment looks more brown then blue.

Step 2 MAC Blue Brown Pigment

To give more depth to the look, I used MAC Foley and Embark eyeshadow as the socket colour. The key at this step is blending. Blend it enough to soften the line, yet keep the distinct colours visible

Step 3 MAC Foley and Embark


Using MAC Carbon as the outer corner colour adds that extra depth to the look. My favourite brush for this is Artiste dome shaped smudge brush. Its dense and pointed, so color application is precise avoiding the racoon effect.
Step 4 MAC Carbon

I finished the look with Loreal gel eyeliner, Milani Liquif’ye in Black on water line. On my lower lash line, I applied MAC Twink using an angle brush.

I started with concealing the dark circles and brightening the under eye area.

Purple Toned Eyelook Step 1

Instead of using an eye shadow primer, I used Smashbox Amethyst Cream eyeshadow as the base. Its an amazing eye product, with great pigmentation, ease of application and little to no creasing. I used my fingers to apply it starting from the lashline and then blending it towards the crease.

This is one of my go to look to do when I am in rush and don’t have time to experiment.
Do you have any such looks?

And yes, if you haven’t tried Smashbox cream eyeshadow, do try them when you are next in store. I am sure you won’t be disappointed.

EOTD : Loreal Infallible Eyeshadow

What do you do, if you are lusting after Armani Eyes To Kill , but don’t have enough moolah to get them ?? You head to local drugstore and get the more affordable cousin,Loreal Infallible Eyeshadow.

I treated myself to 2 shades( Purple Obsession, All Night Blue ) from this range. Today’s EOTD features ‘All Night Blue’

Other than ‘All Night Blue’, I have used MAC Embark in crease and some random gold pigment.

EOTD : Basic Neutral Look

Today’s post is about a basic neutral eye look created using SAX Eye Delight Eyeshadow Palette* and SAX liquid eyeliner*


I have used eye shadow ‘A’ from the palette as on over all eye color, with shade ‘B’ in outer 2/3rd of the eye and shade ‘C’ in the outer V.

The look was completed with SAX liquid eyeliner ( not shown in the post).

EOTD : Flicked Eyeliner

I haven’t been wearing makeup for quite sometime so I thought to start with simple eye look.

Please excuse my eyebrows, I am not getting a chance to get them threaded.

I used Australis Double Decker Eye Duo in Supernova Casanova all over my eyes and Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner to upper lashline.
Its a very basic look but a failsafe one.
