Let’s just face it, V-Day or not, there’s no harm finding moments to dress up for. After two years of staying indoors and attending every event virtually, it’s time to appreciate every chance we get to deck up and step out, however, not without our face masks. Taking that into consideration and playing with the colours and trends of the season, we got three makeup artists to decode their favourite look that you can wear on V-Day which is around the corner. Brunch or a dinner date, take your pick from three eccentric looks created by celeb-favourite MUAs.
1. Kritika Gill – Lush Lavender
The key to achieving this eccentric eye makeup look is using different tones and textures of the same shade. Use a deep, warm shade of purple on the eye and extend it outwards to create a soft wing, defining the look. Blend the colour softly on the lower waterline too. Apply a shimmery lilac starting from the inner corner of the eye and moving to the centre of the eyelid to highlight the area. Use a magenta eyeliner on the inner rim of the eyes to add a definition. Complete the look by using a volumising mascara.
2. Heema Dattani – Smoked Brown
Use an eyeshadow base that would not only make your makeup last longer but also make the pigments pop. Smudge a brown pencil over the entire eyelid, a darker brown towards the outer corners, and a mid-toned brown for the creases. To add to the glam factor, apply bronze glitter over the lids. Opt for natural-looking eyelash extensions and curl them using a light layer of mascara. Use a black gel liner to conceal the lash glue band giving a sultry effect. Go for strong brows and set them with a clear brow gel.
3. Pooja Sethiya – Liner Power
You can never go wrong with a less-is-more makeup look. But as the day screams pink and red, why not try out a funky pink eyeliner? For this, you can use a regular eyeshadow palette or a cream formulation for more control during application and opacity in the final results. Make sure to smoothen out the entire eyelid with a neutral eyeshadow shade. You may want to use a precision eyeshadow brush to draw the wing for a sharp look.
