Talking EYES !!!

creating  a simple yet sophisticated look
1. Apply a light eyeshadow over your entire eyelid from lash line to eyebrow bone, but not beyond.
2. Define the crease of your eyelid using a medium or dark shade. The deeper the shade, the more dramatic look.
3. Line your eyes with a black eye liner. This can be gel, pencil or liquid eye liner

4. To open up your eyes so that they appear livelier, place a dot of a light shade in the inner corner of each eye. Use the same shade to highlight the brow bone.

 Tip: When choosing an eyeshadow shade, keep in mind that a pastel shade will look softer while a darker shade will appear more dramatic when applied.

Lip Cosmetics

Lip liner: When you are concentrating on lip makeup, you have to choose a good lip liner. Drawing the outline perfectly, you can offer a good shape to your lips. It promotes you fuller or thinner lips. Most of the women prefer lip liner for giving their lip a good feature. 

Lip plumper : For enjoying a fuller lip, select lip plumper. It is a wonderful cosmetic for your lip. Translucent, tinted, opaque, these are the types of lip plumpers available in cosmetic world. If you are searching for a sexy pout, buy this product. It is composed of menthol, camphor, etc. The product also encourages collagen production and moisturizes your lips.

Lipsticks : Lipsticks bring outstanding makeover on your face. After shaping the lips with lip liner, add an awesome shade on it. You may choose the shades according to your choice, skin complexion, etc. From matte shade to satin sheer shades, everything will be available in lipstick cosmetics. 

Lip gloss : Lip gloss offers sexy lips. If you are bored with the common texture of your lip, you may include, lip glosses. However, it also nourishes the lips adding glamor and fun. You may prefer to apply lip gloss alone or with your lipstick. 

How to apply Lip Makeup?

Make the outline with the Lip Liner – before you take this step to define the shape of your lips with the lip line, make sure that your lips are smooth, soft and free of grease. Try using a sharp lip liner, it should be a shade close to the color of your lipstick. Apply the same with a steady hand and don't make the line too dark. While making the line on your upper lips, start off with the centre portion and then come toward both the edges. In case of the lower lip, make the line from both the sides. 

Try to prime up the lips with A Lip Balancer – make the base right before applying the lipstick. It should be in a position to be seen balanced out to match the skin tone. If you see that your lips are of an even color, you can use a face powder to act as the best base. 

Fill up with the Lipstick – Use a lip brush and fill in the lip color on both the lips. Same as that of the lip liner, in case of the upper lip, you shall have to start off applying at the center and then move towards the two sides. Similarly, for the lower lip, apply it from both the sides. Don't put on too much of color. You can always try adding more color later on rather than removing the excess colors. 

Blotting Off - fold a clean tissue paper and hold it between both your lips. If there is excess color, just press your lips slowly together to do away with it. 

Apply lip gloss – Lastly, make the finishing touch by applying the lip gloss over your lipstick to make your lips gleam with shine. 

Lip sticks and lip colors usually have three different effects: matte, frosted, glossy. Ideally, those with thick lips should avoid lip gloss and glossy lip sticks or lip colors.

Teenage Makeup

So if you are a teen (or even just new to wearing makeup), you’re probably wondering what you should buy first and where to begin.  I’ve created a list of my favorite products to start with that won’t break your wallet!
These items are in order of what to buy first based off of what is the most natural looking and easiest to apply.  Start wearing one product at a time and add others as you like until you createyour custom look.

Loreal Voluminous Mascara

Loreal Voluminous Mascara
Mascara is usually the makeup product that everyone starts with as it is easy to apply and makes a big impact in your look.   This Loreal mascara is my favorite for thickening the lashes and is inexpensive, which I love!
Supriti’s Tip: For the first few times of use, scrape off the excess mascara on the end of the tube- otherwise it may clump as the formula is thick.
Where to buy: Shopperstop, or any shopping mall

Wedding Makeup

The Indian wedding makeup is usually very dramatic and viabrant, it’s one of the most interesting makeup looks to create, since it has to be PERFECT. After all, it is your big day!
Makeup should last all day, through all the crying, hugging, kissing, eating and dancing.  You’ll probably want to get your mascara waterproof, lips to be kiss proof, and your skin makeup to be bombproof.  (I really recommend Model in a Bottle as it makes your makeup last several hours!)
