Cannes film festival 2013 has been the topic of discussion since forever now especially with Aishwarya Rai walking down the red carpet, the entire blogosphere buzzing with pictures of this gorgeous diva!
I saw this one look which I really liked, it was Aishwarya’s signature smokey eyes but with a twist where she has gorgeous bronzy gold color smudged on her lower lashline! I absolutely loved this eye makeup look and thought I would re-create the same for you guys 🙂 Please understand I don’t look like her nor do I have her beautiful eyes, but I created this look with the best possible products I had in my kitty and to be honest, I really loved it!
So, these are the two pictures of Aishwarya’s eye makeup which I used for inspiration 🙂
Products I used to create the look:
- TheBalm Nude Tude Palette (Sultry, Sophisticated, Serious and Sleek eyeshadows).
- MUA Mascara.
- MAC Soft Ochre.
- MAC Genuine Treasure
- Lakme Kajal Ikonic.
As always, prime your eye lids, I am using MAC’s paint pot in Soft Ochre.
Now, if you see closely, Aishwarya’s smokey eyes are not jet black, but she has that bronzy shimmery base underneath which lifts the entire eye look. So, I have used MAC Paint Pot in Genuine Treasure as a base for my black eyeshadow. Now, you can even use Maybelline color tattoo in Bad To The Bronze instead. Apply the cream eyeshadow on the entire eye lid blending upwards towards the crease.
Mix dark brown and black eyeshadow and apply it all over the lid, staying below the crease line. Now, the reason why I am mixing two shades here is because I don’t want jet black smokey eyes, so to reduce the intensity of black, I am mixing it with a dark brown eyeshadow. You can obviously use only black eyeshadow as well 🙂 I have used Sleek + Serious eyeshadows from Nude Tude Palette.
Use a medium brown eyeshadow which is closer to your skin tone to blend out the harsh edges and soften the look. I have used Sultry from Nude Tude palette.
Apply the same cream eyeshadow on your lower lashline, I have used MAC’s Genuine Treasure Paint Pot.
Using a smudger brush or a pencil brush, blend out the edges using a bronze gold eyeshadow – I have used Sophisticated eyeshadow from Nude Tude Palette.
Line your eyes with a kohl pencil, lashline as well as waterline.
Apply black+brown eyeshadow on the lashline to soften the eye liner. Curl your eye lashes and apply loads of mascara to both upper and lower lashes.
Apply a satin finish eyeshadow as brow bone highlight to complete the look.
Apply a matte cream color as inner corner highlight and your look is completed 🙂
I hope you guys enjoyed the tutorial and I hope you all liked it 🙂
Until next time, take care and stay beautiful.
