Eye Makeup For Ethnic Wear With Golden Theme

Hi All,

Eye+Makeup+For+Ethnic+Wear+With+Golden+Theme

Like I promised in my last tutorial that I would be doing my further tutorials based on what readers want.  So, here I am with the first one of the lot.  I find a lot of girls asking me what kind of eye makeup they should sport with saree or lehenga which has golden/copper zari work on it. So, I came up with a pretty simple look which would suit each of your saree with zari work, no matter what the base color of the saree is. This one is for you Deepika :) hope you like it.

Products Used:

Makeup Products

1. Lakme compact powder.
2. Lakme eye quartet in desert rose
3. VOV make up kit.
4. VOV 2 color eyebrow powder set
5. Maybelline hypercurl mascara
6. Elle 18 kajal
7. Golden eye crayon.
8. Streetwear eyeliner in black.

Step by Step Tutorial:

Step 1:

Prime your eyes with your favorite primer or concealer and groom your eyebrows with an eyebrow powder or a dark brown eye shadow.

3

Step 2:

Use a golden highlighter below your brow bone. I have used the pale golden shade form Lakme Eye Quartet.

Step 3:

Take a golden eye crayon and apply it over 2/3rd your upper eyelid.

Step 4:

Use some powder golden eye shadow over the crayon layer. You can use just powder golden eye shadow and leave out the crayon part if you have a properly pigmented golden one in your kitty. I have used VOV eye shadow in golden and the eye crayon.

Gold Eye Crayon

Step 5:

Take the copper shade from the Lakme eye quartet in Desert Rose and apply on the outer 1/3rd of the upper eye lid.  Blend the golden and the copper properly at the point where they meet.

Gold Eyeshadow

Step 6:

Take a matte brown eyeshadow and blend the harsh edges on the crease.

Step 7:

Draw a thick winged line with black eyeliner on the upper lash line.

Upper Lash Line

Step 8:

Finally, add loads of mascara and kajal and you are done!

This is how it should look!

Golden eye makeup

You can tone it down a bit by lightly brushing some matte brown eye shadow over it. Be confident and wear any lip color (sans red) of your choice with this look.

your eyes look lovely aparajita..i always notice how precisely you apply kajal…is it possible to have such precise application with elle18 kajal?

Reply

aparajita February 7, 2013 at 5:37 pm

thanks mily! :) i generally use maybelline colossal kajal. but i find no difficulty using elle 18 one too…. maybe when the tip gets blunt i will just use a brush to apply :)

Lovely eye makeup. I always look forward to your eye makeup tutorials…
btw I have a small query , am asking this to you as you seem to do eye makeup effortlessly – normally when I apply kajal it always collects on the outer corner of my eye after an hour or so . Do you have any idea how i can avoid it ? I love wearing kajal but because of this I am unable to wear it confidently.

Reply

aparajita February 7, 2013 at 5:40 pm

thanks sonali :) it may be because you have oily waterline. try this! take matte black or dark grey eyeshadow on a thin pencil brush and apply over your kajal :) the powder will set the kajal and it will last longer :)

sonali February 7, 2013 at 8:43 pm

Hi…thx for reply. Just one more question , is it safe to put eyeshadow on waterline ( I wear lenses) and also if you could suggest some particular matte one that could do the trick. Sorry for asking so many things…actually I am very new to this world of makeup!!

Reply

aparajita February 7, 2013 at 8:54 pm

my sis wears lenses too and i have tried this on her… :) just a slight dab, not much :) i use the matte grey n brown from VOV 2 color eyebrow powder set

Reply

Manisha February 7, 2013 at 5:20 pm

wow aprajita this one is so good. no many product required :0 I have watery eyes so kajal wont stays long I’ll use waterproof eye pencils. Wonder when I’ll be able to create that wing ;)

Reply

aparajita February 7, 2013 at 5:41 pm

try it manisha! its really very easy :) try resting ur elbow over a surface and just move ur wrist while creating the wing. it makes the hand steady :)

Sanjeev February 7, 2013 at 9:13 pm

Aparajita ji, I have never commented on any makeup tutorial as it’s a line I don’t want to cross. But I want to add something here- when I imagine the whole process of doing makeup, clicking pictures, editing them, etc. and I still see a job well done, I realize how much the person is enjoying what she is doing. After Rati, Neha and Deeptima I got this feeling from you.

So good show. :)

aparajita February 7, 2013 at 9:16 pm
