Makeup Shoot !! Part 3

This post concludes the looks that I did for the recent photoshoot. I am planning to post an article on how to do makeup for photography (to encourage better pictures and not look washed out in the camera for all those who need a bit of help or feel so).
I requested the photographer to allow me to this look and named it aptly as 'Ultra violet'. Its not unknown that I am a huge fan of purples and lilacs and here was a golden (purple) chance to experiment.

So let me tell you the products that were used.......

I wanted to use purples and mix them with eclectic roses and toffee colors to not only compliment the model's complexion but also create a different theme altogether. So ultra purple eyes met rose pinched cheeks (subtle dusting of rose blush, cannot make out in these lights) and toffee infused with rose lips.


  • Vichy Comforting calming cleanser micellar water
  • Neutrogena Oil Free Sunscreen SPF 15
  • Clarins Instant Smooth Perfect Touch primer
  • Max Factor Second Skin Foundation
  • MAC Moisture cover concealer NW 30 (applied with 217)
  • MAC Mineralize Skin finish powder in Medium (light dusting to fix makeup)
  • MAC Mineralize Blush in Gleeful (dusted sparingly)
  • MAC Powder blush in Emote (for contouring)
  • Oriflame Tender Care Lip balm
  • Shiseido The Makeup Lipgloss in G27 Rose Toffee (splendid nude color as the name suggests)
  • NARS Pro Prime Smudgeproof eyeshadow base
  • MAC Paint pot in Groundwork
  • MAC eyeshadow in Top Knot (dark purple black satin, applied in the outer corners and outer crease)
  • MAC Marvel (bright purple frost, applied in the entire crease)
  • L'Oreal Chrome eyeshadow in Purple Obsession (applied on the entire lid_
  • MAC Shock-a-holic (smoked on the lower lids)
  • MAC Pigments in Violet and Kitschmas (layered in the inner corners)
  • MAC Sunday Best (as brow bone highlighter)
  • MAC Brown Down ( brow powder)
  • MAC Brow Gel
  • Shiseido Eyelash curler

  3. Stunning i must say..will MAC Remotely grey suit most Olive skin tone when contouring NEERAJ ?

    1. Thanks a lot!
      Remotely Grey would work mostly on lighter skin tones. For olive skin tones I recommend MAC Brown down for the crease.For contouring you could pass on with a matte bronzer like theBalm's Bahama Mama
