Look of the Day: Lohri Makeup 2016

Mungfali di khushbu te gurh di mithaas,
Makki di roti te sarso da saag,
Dil di khushi te aapneya da pyar,
Mubarak hove tuhanu
LOHRI da tyohar…

Yeah, I know I am a day late in wishing you all, but it is better to be late than never.  I wanted to write this post yesterday itself, after coming back from my first ever Lohri ‘meet’, but it continued almost till midnight and I was too exhausted after all the dancing and singing. Ahhh..!! I should dance a bit more often.
Anyway, back to today’s post. This is the look I went for yesterday. It is a simple golden and raspberry eye with bright bold lips.
And here is the breakdown…

My foundation is Studio Fix Fluid by MAC.
Apply a good concealer under the eyes, preferably couple of shades lighter than your actual your skin tone. It is very important to have a bright under eye area for any eye look to work.

Make sure you have an even and smooth base. Apply an eye primer so that the eye shadows can be applied in a smooth, even layer, and so that it will stay in place on the eyelid… I have used Urban Decay eye shadow Potion.
On my upper eye lid I applied a light golden eye shadow, blended with a raspberry. I blended the colors with a beige-brown eye shadow on the crease area. For highlighting my inner duct area I applied a shinny golden eye shadow and on brow bone I applied a pale, shimmered golden. All the eye shadows are from Coastal Scents 258 eye shadow pallet.
I skipped any liner on upper lid and went straight to lining lower lash line. I applied Face Magnet eyes kajal and then smudged it with a smudge brush. After that the same raspberry color on my smude brush and dabbed it on the outer corner of lower lash line. I have completed my eye makeup with the L’Oreal Million Lashes mascara.


I was confused whether to go for neutral lips or bold lips. Finally when I decided to go for bold lips, I was confused in between a bright pinkish red and an orange lipstick. That’s why I went for both together. I applied MAC Morange on my upper lips, MAC Relentlessly Red on my lower lips and smacked lips together.  

I used NYX Dessert Rose to add a flush of color on my cheeks. I used Benefit highbeam on my cheekbones and nose bridge.

I wore an Anarkali salwar suit whose color surprisingly matched my lip color. I finished off my look with a bindi and a pair of silver, matte gold plated jhumkas.
That’s it. Hope you liked the look. Share your lohri looks with me too. Mail me or tag me on facebook.

I wish that the warmth of the bonfire, sweetness of gur and Rewri remain with you forever.
