MAKEUP FOR INDIAN SKIN TONE

MAKEUP FOR INDIAN SKIN TONE Β : PERFECT FOR THE FESTIVAL /WEDDING SEASON
Navratri has begun!!! For the uninitiated, its an Indian Festival which celebrates the victory of Goddess Durga over the devil Mahushasura.
The mythology aside, its also time for a lot of celebration and festivities. There is a lot of garba and dandiya (dance forms) involved along with lot of strolling around and roaming about with friends and family and indulging in the yummylicious food!!!
Yum Yum…missing Kolkata. Its the best time of the year according to me to be in Kolkata.
Okay well this post is in regards to the ongoing festivities and also many more to come.
For this FOTD/LOTD Β I have used copper, gold kind of shades. This makeup will compliment well with Indian traditional wear, and its perfect makeup for the INDIAN Festive Season
Hope you all like it and incorporate it somehow and find it useful.
So lets begin!
1. I primed my lids usingΒ NYX EYESHADOW BASE in skin tone, to negate any pigmentation on the lids. And taking a flat eyeshadow brush and using patting motion I applied the brown copper eye shadow on the outer half of the lids and also on the lower lash line(outer half only).

2. Next I used a orange based gold eyeshadow on the lids with the same eyeshadow brush and applied it on the lower lash line( inner half).

3.Next taking a matte brown eyeshadow I applied it on the crease to darken it.

4.Next I applied a shimmery gold eyeshadow on the tear duct, and lightly blended the dark brown on the crease. For the highlight I used a matte beige/white color eyeshadow, but you can go all out and use a shimmery highlight as well.

5. Applied a black gel eye liner and mascara on top and bottom lashes. Its done.

Here is the full face makeup. I used a burnt orange blush on the cheeks, and for the lips I used an apricot lipstick and topped it off with a coral lip gloss from NYX. I shall update the post will the details of the products used soon. I promise, but I just wanted to get this post up soon.
I gave a Β little INDIAN twist to the FOTD by using Indian jewelry. How do you guys like my take on the makeup for Indian skin tone ?
