Here’s another Party Make up look that I wanted to share with all of you. It’s an extremely easy look and may take up to 15 minutes, as you need a steady hand to draw the eye liner, but once it’s done, the rest is all very quick.
Face Make Up Products used :
Left to Right :
- Revlon ColorStay Mineral Mousse in ‘Light’.
- L’oreal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Powder in W3 Golden Beige.
- MAC Blot Powder in ‘Light’.
- MAC Powder Blush ‘Springsheen’.
Revlon ColorStay Mineral Mousse swatch :
Index finger: L’oreal Paris True Match Super-blendable powder (W3), Middle finger: MAC Blot Powder (Light) and Ring finger: MAC Blush (Springsheen). I got this after I read on Rati’s article that it’s the closest and almost similar shade to the NARS Orgasm blush!

- MAC Chromagraphic Eye Pencil NC15/NW20.
- MAC Fluidline (gel eye liner) in ‘Shade’.
- Oriflame Giordani Gold Lacquer Perfection Liquid Eye liner.

Here’s how I got the eye look: First, I applied MAC Paint Pot (Soft Ochre) all over the lids. Then on the lower waterline, I applied the MAC Chromagraphic Eye Pencil. Using the Inglot 23T eye liner brush, lined the lower lash line with MAC Fluidline in Shade (a matte-finish emerald green colour). Then, on the upper lash line, I drew a very fine line with the Oriflame Lacquer Perfection eyeliner (a shiny black colour, with no shimmer, just shine), making the line slightly thicker towards the outer lash line. After this dried within a few minutes, I applied MAC Fluidline in Sweet Sage (a slightly frosty finish olive green colour) with the Inglot 23T eyeliner brush on top of the black eyeliner, making it thicker than the black eye liner line. These 2 together give the effect of having applied eyeshadow, unless one really looks close (so my friends keep guessing what I have done)! I then applied the Lakme eyeshadow highlighter shade (a beautiful frosty light beige) on the rest of my eye lid upto under the eyebrows. Eyes done!
Lip product used :
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Brilliance (Sparkling Touch for Lips) in No. 9 – a beautiful, shimmery coppery-rusty colour lip gloss. It’s a click type (the black knob at the right end is for clicking to get the product onto the brush).

And here’s the total look :
As much as I have tried over the years, I cannot get my face tone to match with my neck tone. My face is much lighter than my neck and the MUA at MAC told me that I have cool undertones on my face and warm undertones on my neck, hence, after she told me that, I have even changed my face powder shade from NC 20 to NC 25 to match my neck, but my face is still more pinkish than my neck! (That’s also why I bought the L’oreal True Match pressed powder in W3 Golden Beige). I think I should now shift to an NW shade for the face. What do you think?
