Antique gold & black eye tutorial

Finally, I got the time to do a tutorial and edit it. Here is a look I wore for a friend's home party last Saturday. The occasion was Deepavali. Deepavali is also known as Diwali by the north indians. It is a festival of lights. I am not a hindu thus I may not be the right person to explain why this festival is celebrated by the hindus. I think there are many resources on the internet with regards to this festival. I love the food and company during this occasion.

Here are the pics, tutorial and products.

Products used:

Mac - Select moisture cover concealor NW35
Mac - Studio fix NC45

Easy black smokey eyes

I am so excited about the Mac style black collection. Have been waiting and wanting to buy the mineralized eye shadows for a while. Most Mac collections are released in Singapore much later then other countries. The good thing is that you get to see swatches and reviews of the products from the US much earlier. To me this is good as I will be able to pick out what I would like and not like.

With all said, I did a tutorial using the mineralized eye shadow in Cinderfella. What an interesting name!

Here are the products used:
Two faced shadow insurance (primer)
Nyx - Black bean (base)
Mac - Cinderfella mineralized e/s (upper & lower lid)
Nyx - Barely there e/s (Highlight & blending colour)
Mac - Silver fog pigment (inner corner of eye)
Maybelline - Volume express turbo mascara (lashes)
Nyx - Cocoa blush (cheeks)
Mac - Honey love lipstick
Nyx - Nutmeg lipliner
Mac - Melt in your mouth lip gloss

Hope you like this look!
