Golden Smokey Eyes for Indian Attire-GRWM

Happy January! I recently received the Lorac Mega Pro 2 Palette which is absolutely amazing. The colors are long lasting, highly pigmented and there's a great variety of matte and shimmer colors. I was also impressed by the amount of transition colors available which is great for creating multiple looks and adding dimension.

Using this palette only, I decided to create this bronze/golden look that's perfect for any Indian attire whether it's a wedding, reception or family gathering. This golden smokey eyeshadow look is neutral enough to match any outfit but glamorous enough to give you a warm and bright look. Check out my step by step tutorial below and learn the look.

Wearable Holiday Makeup For Any Event 2015

Hello Gorgeous! I know it's been a while since I posted any makeup activity but with a busy 2015 ending I thought I would get back into my beauty passion. Check out some of favorite products for the Holidays and watch my tutorial on an easy, wearable and flawless Holiday makeup look using both high end and affordable drug store products.
Products Used:  
NARS-Illuminous Foundation in Stromboli

MAC's Cool neutral palette
Too Faced Cosmetics-Semi Sweet Chocolate Palette
Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit

Buxom Cosmetisc in Brooklyn
Revlon Matte Lip Balm in Stardust



A classic warm red with a touch of gloss. You can rock this matte if you want, but I wanted a little shine. I'm wearing Revlon's Matte Lip Balm in Stardust.


A more vampy lip but still quite wearable. This is for those who are afraid of a little color but want some richness to their makeup. I'm wearing the $3 Wet n Wild Matte lipstick in Cherry Bomb. Cheap lipsticks for high quality looks.


My go to lips, a warm mauve- nude. Here, I'm wearing the Buxom Cosmetics lipstick in Brooklyn-a semi matte formula with a velvet and long lasting finish, I barely have to reapply this. This is a great neutral look if you're doing something low key for the holidays.
