Just some suede!!

This is just a basic day look with some really long lashes and a lovely cat eye liner to create an elongated eye. This is almost contrasting to the theme of makeup I did in the last post where I created round looking eyes. 
This is a perfect office wear makeup look and can be donned for other occasions too, even for a Christian Wedding makeup.

So lets see how to do this plain and simple eye makeup look...........

The Lavender Moon

This look is inspired by Artemis the Moon Goddess post that I did a couple of months earlier. I wanted to use this amazing BH cosmetics Jenni Rivera Palette (reviewed here) to pull this look together for an incredibly beautiful monsoon evening. (Although monsoons are not too keen to come to India). Lavender moon is post where I have used luminescence of crystal moon like pearls to adorn a grey lavender shimmer eyeshadow.
The deep dark false lashes add to the flavor and make the eyes look shimmer-struck and glamorous.

I have tried to achieve a round eye more than an almond shaped one. To do this I have attempted to use certain techniques which I shall discuss in the tutorial. I went through a lot of international blogs where there are amazing makeups beautifully exhibited but with a lot of photo-shopping and airbrushing. Would you suggest whether I should do it too or keep it natural?

Anyways, lets see how to get the Lavender Moon look.......

Matte Matters!!

Sometimes its fun to use matte colors to brighten up eyes and then keep the rest of the face dewy and glowy. This is the anti-shimmery eyes look which allows a lot of room to work on skin and look amazing and fresh. Also the matte bright purples and pinks I have used are quite subdued and can be carried off in as a day makeup if you work for a stylish salon or something. To keep the eyes look bright and fresh, I would advice to emphasize of lashes and apply a wonderful mascara to open up the eyes.

I have used BH cosmetics 88 eyeshadow palette to achieve this look with the colors marked as a star. have a look at how to do this look after the jumpbreak.......................................................................

The Mascara Magic : Clinique High Impact Mascara in Brightening Black

For those who know me or have read my blog for quite a while may recollect my love for Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black. The time has come to renounce my love for this mascara again but in a better way by buying a color not known to the Indian markets (from Clinique of course).

Although this mascara was launched a while ago and lovely Pixiwoos have it, it hit Indian shores a bit tardily and I managed to pick up mine without seeing it or giving it another thought. This mascara is BRIGHTENING BLACK.

Random Makeups

Not all makeups that I practice end up as tutorials and they keep on piling up and stagnating in my overflowing computer. So I thought I would do some random in between posts to describe the makeup look and arbitrarily tell the theme and some main products involved.

Hope you find them enjoyable and not silly....LOL
Btw these are breather posts in between my Mascara Magic months and I will be shooting more mascaras for reviews whenever I find some spare time a midst busy freelancing life and funny timings of work and demands of customers.

So lets have a look at some random makeups.............(which may pop up hither thither in future too)

The Mascara Magic - Deborah Absolute Hi-Tech mascara

This July and August is going to be the months of mascaras and their applications and all. I always yearned to do such posts but was never inspired that much until I got a lot of mascaras to review and thought let me follow the works and get inspired from Clumps of Mascara. She writes these amazing mascara reviews and is my go-to site when I need to know about any mascara out there.

Today I am featuring a brand new mascara (which is also reviewed by the amazing lady Bhumika here and has elaborated it really well) which I bought from Jabong. I always wanted to buy a product from Deborah Milano since its making raves all over the country and nothing's better than starting the brand with my favorite product - mascara.

So lets have a look at what this mascara is and how to get your favorite Day to Night Look....

Illamasqua Generation Q ; Where beauty has no age limits.

In the last three years Illamasqua has become a global phenomenon, a proud advocate of self-expression and a lone voice in an industry controlled by the world’s beauty cartels – cartels, we believe, who have forced their soulless definitions of beauty onto the world.

Driven by this desire to constantly challenge the status quo, we are proud to break the unspoken prejudice of age as we launch our new AW12 collection - Generation Q.  This new, dynamic range of expressive textures and shades provides the industry’s only antidote to the homogenised outdated vision of beauty.

Generation Q is a celebration of beauty. Ageless, and without limits or restrictions. It’s our declaration to the world that beauty is inclusive, not exclusive. In fact, Generation Q is a clear message to everybody, everywhere that beauty is not young, old, black, white, male or female, but anything, everything and everyone. If you’re someone who does not want age to define them, don’t want to blend in and fade away, you are Generation Q.

For Illamasqua, this is a stand we were born to take. So in typical Illamasqua style, we have done something that no other brand would or could do. Our new Generation Q campaign will go against the industry’s unspoken and despicable taboo, by featuring older models as well as young. Because to us, hiding your age is like hiding your true identity. After all “Illamasqua customers will not be told what to do and when to do it” Julian Kynaston, Illamasqua Founder.

Illamasqua is not just make-up for the skin. It’s make-up for a mind-set. And it’s why all the Generation Q models aren’t models at all, but real make-up fans, with a real life and real sense of their own beauty. The future of beauty is changing and we are the new voice of a brand new generation - Generation Q, where beauty has no age limits
'Generation Q - is generation YOU!
It's what they tell you not to do; it’s what you see your true self through.
It's what is old and what is new.
What you know and what you knew.
It's what you feel and what is true
                                                  Alex Box, Illamasqua Creative Director
Generation Q empowers and complements the user with light reflective not age reflective products. The collection is a story of sultry, forbidden shimmer and creative formulations to build dimension.
All products and shades included in Generation Q have been formulated and chosen irrespective of age, race, gender or sexual preference to give everybody the tools to express their alter ego.
Illamasqua is standing up against the industry rule of “only wearing matt” products and concealing your real identity under a sea of “beige” after a certain age. Complementing and empowering your true beauty, shimmer is adorned to accent, highlight and lift features. Generation Q is a celebration of today, where beauty and creativity has no sell by date.

The 72 yr young and beautiful Evelyn epitomizes the Generation Q and can compete with her beauty and charm with any young one available.
Here's what Evelyn has to say about her experiences after being a winner of an Illamasqua competition.
"I am originally a country gal, born in Dorset in May 1940. I was not academic or sporty at school and would gaze out of the window and dream of the bright lights and big cities. I have always loved make-up; from a small girl using Mother's lipstick. I loved those beautiful women in the 1930s and 1940s films and tried to copy the looks. I get such pleasure every day from just putting my face on, and even more so now - thank you, Illamasqua!
I was very thrown to hear that I had been chosen to star in the Illamasqua campaign. I had no idea there were so many entrants.
I was very nervous to be modelling at a professional photo shoot. Thank goodness for Kate [my daughter] and all of the Illamasqua team, who were all so friendly and put me at ease. Once I relaxed, I loved every moment. 
It was a complete honour to have my make-up done by Alex Box. Very exciting! Alex is so wonderfully warm and approachable and deft with those brushes! To try to take it all in I left my 'Alex' face on for 3 days whilst I attempted to follow her lines.
I have always been an advocate of using real women for these campaigns and never imagined it would happen. Hooray for real younger and real older women who give the real picture of how we can be transformed as opposed to model girls and actresses, who are the faces of most trading brands.
I feel definitely that if you love glamour or care about your appearance then be empowered - let's believe in ourselves and go for it! I never imagined I would be wearing false eye lashes or red lipstick again and am thrilled to re-find the sense of fun that making up can give you with the promise of endless possibilities in new looks."
Here are some shots of this uber-beautiful diva being photographed and getting her makeup done from the famous Alex Box.

From the above pictures I can conclude that,

Beauty is ageless, raceless and no one is 'ugly'. We can be and look beautiful at any times. Its all about doing the right things, being positive and smiling all the time. When one learns to accept the failures and works their path to success, they get to know how Beautiful life is.

I hope you got the message too.
