Indian Wedding Golden Blue Eye Makeup Look Tutorial

by Deeptima on October 28, 2010 · 135 comments

Hello Sweta,

When I saw your post on Ask IMBB I had ideas flowing in my mind but I am really bad in explaining makeup in words..lolz..so I immediately contacted Rati to ask if I could do a tutorial and she was like super duper excited. hehehe… thanks Rati Di !! I have done looks for both wedding and engagement for you. Following is the Indian Wedding look. :)

Wedding Look !!

For the wedding day the look I thought of is very traditionally Indian Wedding types, try wearing single colored jewelry if you decide to do the look I created, without blabbing much lets begin with the look. The dress you told was Dark Blue with Gold so the look I created is very simple and typical … as u said you are on the fairer side you can use a light yellowish gold eyeshadow.
So lets get started !!

1. Prime your lids with a good base, I used oriflame Dual Skin corrector

Prime

2. Apply compact after priming this will delay creasing if you have oily lids

Powder

3. Apply Gold eyeshadow on the inner 3/4 of your lids (SHADE 1)

4. Now using a Dark blue make an outer “V” using a angled or thin brush (SHADE 3)

Purple

5. Now fill in with A little lighter blue shade (SHADE 2) and blend carefully, gold and blue can make your eyeshadow appear greenish !!

Blue

6. Apply Dark Blue (SHADE 3) on your outer corner.

7. Use a Q-tip to clean fall out and to correct the outer “V”

8. Highlight with a very light golden Eyeshadow (SHADE 4)

9. Apply a small Winged Liner, this will enhance your beautiful eyes, Apply kohl liner on your water line.

Deeptima!
Gor-ge-ous ! I’m going to try this for Diwali. I usually go with one color on the lid, but hey this looks so pretty I wanna give it a shot!
Btw…I read somewhere, I think on your blog, that you’re not professionally trained. I just want to say that you’re realllllllllllly good at this and you should really consider pursuing a career in makeup (if you’r not doing that already)!!

Deeptima October 28, 2010 at 12:57 pm

mary October 28, 2010 at 12:41 pm

. Use a Q-tip to clean fall out and to correct the outer “V” what does this mean?

Also what does highlighting mean & which part is it done?

Reply

Deeptima October 28, 2010 at 1:08 pm

Mary, usually while blending the eyeshadow goes out of place and on areas where we dnt want it so just clean the areas where u have unwanted eyeshadow…. use a drop of any lotion on a Q-tip and clean excess eyeshadow…

we usually Highlight under the eye-brow on the brow bone focusing under and arch of the brow and blending !!!

Wow this is beautiful! You are really talented! I always end up getting all the colours mixed when I try something like this. Do you think it’s because I don’t use a primer?? :cry:

Reply

Deeptima October 28, 2010 at 1:26 pm

u shd use a primer…. and use a fluffy soft brush for blending ! Thnx !!

Reply

Jyo October 28, 2010 at 3:24 pm

Got the primer in today’s sale!!! I am so happy!! :evilgrin:

Reply

Rati October 28, 2010 at 1:28 pm

J Yo, also keep changing your brushes..I use separate brushes for different colours. It keeps the application precise and does not mix the colours. :)

Reply

Jyo October 28, 2010 at 2:58 pm

Hmmm..will try that! I bought the Colorbar warm palette specially for karwa chauth but the colours got mixed up on my eyes! Will try the primer next time. Any recommendation for eye primer/eye-shadow base? I have very very oily skin. I dont want something very expensive!

Rati: Will try keeping teh brushes seperate next time! I guess the goof-up was mainly because of that!

Thanks a lot for suggestions

Reply

Deeptima October 28, 2010 at 7:47 pm

Rati di u are totally correct Jyo u shd use diff brushs … if u dnt have many brushes, clean them before using other color… that’s wht i do… :P :-P

Reply

Rati October 28, 2010 at 4:47 pm

I used the same blue and purple but I think I need to go with a little heavier hand at these and used a golden from the inglot palette. No golden in my Cs palette. Winged eye liner doesn’t look too good on me so kept it simple. :P

But it’s a fabulous look, Deeptima I lovvveeddd it. :))

And no yours is prettier. :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*
