The Day Look –  For Brunch or Lunch

Line your eyelids with brown or grey eye shadow. This gives a softer effect for the day. Then, apply mascara, which helps to make the eyes look darker and brighter, but prevents the “heavily made-up” look. For lipstick, use light pastel colours like mauve, browns or pink, provided it complements your skin colour. If you have a sallow (yellowish) complexion, avoid shades of orange and go for pinks. The colours should not be too intense. If you like, you can wear only lip gloss. The products you may need are tinted moisturiser or foundation, or compact powder, eye pencil or kajal or eyeliner, mascara, lipstick/lipgloss.  Products with a matte (non-shiny) finish are better for the day.  

To add glamour and shimmer to day make-up, apply a light colour shadow like mauve, or light brown over the entire area. Then use dull gold or silver shadow on the upper lid closer to the lashes and also to highlight under the brows.  

Select one unique and glamorous piece of jewellery and build your outfit around it.

Evening tea or high-tea look

Dark brown or dark grey eyeshadow can be applied over black eyeliner for a muted effect. Products you would need are eye shadow, eyeliner/kajal/eye pencil, mascara, lipstick. To add glamour, use mauve or pink eye shadow, instead of brown or grey, with silver or gold highlights. 

Go for the smoky eyes look. After applying eye shadow, apply eyeliner close to the lashes on the upper eyelid. Then smudge it with a cotton bud. Then apply a dark shadow over it and blend it outwards and slightly upwards. Apply liner just below lower lashes, smudge it and then apply eye shadow. Use gold or silver highlight under the brow bone, depending on our outfit and make-up.

Night look – Dinner

While choosing a foundation for very fair ivory skin, go for beige with a rosy tint. If the complexion is fair but sallow (yellowish), avoid pink tones and go for beige or biscuit. For reddish complexion, a softer beige will help. Olive complexions look better with brownish beige, while for brown and dark skins, try out foundation colours in natural brown tones. 

Where lips are concerned, a dark complexion looks good in vibrant colours. Avoid very pale colours. If the skin is fair, avoid very dark colours. For normal Indian complexion, go for warm earthy colours, like coral, wine, plum, strawberry, red and shades of red. 

Blusher colours need not match lip colour exactly, but it should be in the same colour tone. For fair skin, try pinks and reds. If you have sallow skin, avoid orange. For olive complexions, colours like rose, coral, russet, amber or copper are flattering, while plum, wine, bronze and burgundy may suit darker complexions. 

A brown shadow may be applied on the lids and a darker brown in the crease of the eyes. Use gold highlights. The products you would need are moisturiser, foundation, powder, blush-on, eye shadow, mascara, eyeliner/pencil/kajal, lipstick, glitter in gold or silver. Gold or silver eye shadow can be used to highlight. 

To add glamour, Use gold foundation, to add a golden glow to the skin. Then apply a golden tinted powder. For glamorous eye make-up, use brown, bronze and gold eye shadow. Apply dark brown eye shadow in the crease of the lids, to add depth. Highlight under the brows with gold. Apply gold eye shadow to shape the eyes and along the bone line. Outline the eyes with a dark eye pencil or eyeliner. Apply it on the upper lid, close to the lashes and smudge with a cotton bud. Gently blend a line of kohl or eye pencil on the lower lid. Try a touch of blusher at the outer eye, just under the eyebrow.
