Indian Inspired Makeup Tutorial

Hello beauties,

This is my own twist on Indian makeup. It is the first time I tried doing this style of makeup and I was not sure how it would turn out but I am happy with the result. In my opinion, this look can be worn by anyone and also to different occasions. I hope you like it!

Pictorial and products used listed below...

Step 1: Start off with primed eyelids. I used E.L.F Eyelid Primer in Sheer.

Step 2: Using a small shader brush, pack the tip with Taupe from the Lorac Pro palette and line slightly above the crease.

Step 3: Blend out Taupe. Then go back in with the same shader brush and line the inner and outer parts of the crease with Espresso from the Lorac Pro palette.

Step 4: Blend Espresso out using a small blending brush. You can add more of both Taupe and Espresso. It all depends on your preference and how dark you want the cut crease to be.

Step 5: With a flat shader brush, apply a nude shimmery eyeshadow all over the lid but do not go past the crease line. I used Inglot's eyeshadow in #153. You can use Champagne or Bronze from the Lorac Pro.

Step 6: Again, add Taupe to the crease and blend, blend, blend!

Step 7: Intensify Espresso with a pencil brush and use it to blend the edges of Espresso.

Step 8: Line your waterline with a brown eyeliner. Then add Espresso on your lower lid and blend it with Taupe.

Step 9: Create a winged liner on the lid. It can be as dramatic as you want it to be. Sorry for the sloppy liner, I fixed it but forgot to take a picture (whoops).

Step 10: Highlight the brow bone and tear duct (Nude - Lorac Pro).

Mascara (The Rocket Mascara - Maybelline)
Lashes (Glamour 202 - Ardell)

ps: do not forget to clean up any fallout under the eyes!

Lipstick: E.L.F Moisturizing Lipstick in Red Carpet
