Indian Wedding Reception Eye Makeup: Step-by-Step Tutorial

Hello Girls,

Happy Weekend everyone, am having a very busy schedule over this and the next weekend as we have to go shopping, decorating, and visiting relatives for Diwali. Hopefully will be able to do some makeup shopping as well.
Recently, I had to attend a day wedding reception (you would understand this if you were a jain). I wore a mauvish pinkish Benarasi saree with silver thread work. Since the saree had all the classic elements, I decided to keep my eye makeup more towards the neutral smokey side and came up with this look. Hope you like it!!!

Let's start with the products used for the eyemakeup:

1. Lancome Magic Voyage Pallete
2. Estee Lauder Magnascopic Mascara
3.L'oreal Super Liner with Felt Tip
4. Lakme Ultimate Eye Kohl
6. Inglot Eye Brush
7. Shu Umera Lash Curler

Step 1: Start by applying eye kohl over the upper lash.

Step 2: Pat a taupe eyeshadow over the kohl, keep it below the crease.

Step 3: Apply a matte brown eyeshadow at the crease and blend lightly, so that there are no harsh edges.

Step 4: Pat a silver shimmery eyeshadow over the upper eyelid and in the inner corners of the eyes.

Step 5: Apply the matte brown eyeshadow at the outer third of the lower lash line and the taupe eyeshadow at the middle third of the lower lash line.

Step 6: Apply black liquid liner on the upper lash line.

Step 7: Highlight the brow bone with white eyeshadow.

Step 8: Curl lashes and apply mascara.

Hope you girls like the finished look. Once again, happy weekend everyone!!!

Take care...
