Durga Puja Special Eye Look Book

Monday, October 19, 2015


Ok, so here's the deal. I love eye make up and love to make it look dramatic. But, yes there is a 'BUT', if I head out with something like the one in the above picture, God forbid, I would be looked upon, frowned upon, talked about, laughed at and so many other things. Our society still cannot accept over the top dramatic, well some of it. And I do not wish to be the talk of the town and be the sentence of everyone's mouth like : " OMG, what had she done with her eyes !!". So I am going to sport something toned down, yet classy and glamorous, an eye make up which is suitable for my tiny hooded asian eye ( so not a Bengali feature ).

I have a very oily eye lid, so priming my eye shadow do not last long and it fades. So i have started using colored gel eyeliners as eye shadow and mix them with some other eye shadow to complete the look. I have been using the Lakme Gel Addict collection and used them to achieve these looks.

Look 1 : A smokey day time look

Products Used :

Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Gel Eyeliner in Grey Ash, smudged it all across my lid and the outer V with a hard bristled blending brush. Lined the lower lash line also with the same and smudged it.
Blended the color Grape and a little bit of from my MUA The Artiste Collection Palette, on the crease area.
On the inner corner a little bit of Mocca from the same palette.
Applied the Chambor Lash Lengthening Mascara 

Look 2 : A night time subtle golden and plum eye look

Products used :

Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Gel Eyeliner in Metallic Bronze, smudged it all across my lid and the outer V with a hard bristled blending brush.
From my Lakme 9 to 5 Eye Color Quartet Silk Route, taken the shade magenta and applied all across my crease area. The same color is applied on my lower lash line as well.
Taken a little of Grape and Chocolate from MUA Palette and dabbed it on top of the eye lid. And Mocca on the inner corner of the eye.
Again finished it off with the Chambor Mascara.

With these looks, I have seen that with a lot of sweat and also oily lids, my eye looks stays as it is for quite a long time. As the gel eyeliner is used as a base, it dries off pretty quickly and as these are long wearing, it prevents from other eye shadows to fade away less.

Hope you enjoyed the look as much as I am loving sporting them.
Hope you are having a great Durga Puja and Navaratri.
