Hellloo girlies. I am writing to you from Starbucks, in Brigade Road in Bangalore as i sip on my Mocha Java Chip and enjoy the awesome weather here away from the Delhi Heat ! The reason I am here is that one of the boys good friends is tieing the knot and its just been three days of non stop party (outfit posts from the weddings coming soon!) . Anyway, this is what I packed in my makeup kit for this wedding.
Side note: The boy insisted on doing his packing at 4:00 am because he wanted to watch the soccer match on tv. I ofcourse slept by then and he did all his packing…only to come t bangalore and realise that while he has packed his suits, he hasn;t carried a single t shirt/ shirt. Go figure.
Side note 2: Sorry in advance for bad photos. These were clicked in the wee hours of the night
From left: Nyx Spellbound , Deborah Lipstick 19, Mac Mehr lipstick (wore this for the sangeet yesterday as a nude), Colorbar Nude Coral (on my lips every single day). Mac Dreaming Dahlias (wearing it to lunch today), Shiseido Perfect rouge 142.
My rule with lipsticks when attending weddings is you need one in a reddish tone (Shiseido), one hot pink (Nyx), a pink nude, and a peach nude (Mehr and Nude Coral respectively), a bright peachy coral (Dazzling Dahlia) and a regular mid tone pink (Deborah)
Blushes I’m carrying: Nars Orgasm (this looks so lovely with Indian wear) , Mac Peachtwist, Mac Dolly mix and Maybelline Dream Touch Mousse Blush. Nars Orgasm is what I was wearing yesterday as it complements the paleness of Mac mehr lipstick perfectly. Dollymix is an instant face brightener and peachtwist is super versatile. The Maybelline one is one of my all time fav blushes so had to carry that one
Face stuff: Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener (though I wish i carried something with heavier coverage cos the partying till 3:00 am is giving me circles this cant conceal), Mac Face& Body Foundation, Sigma Flat top Kabuki , Regular blush brush from New U and two coastal scents brushes for eyeshadows
For the eyes: In terms of shadows I only need these two- the Coastal Scents Revealed Pallette and the Bourjois Color Edition 24 H Eyeshadow pot in Khaki Green . The CS pallette has me covered for anything ranging from gold, to bronze, to peach and I was contemplating doing an olive green eye for one of the events so I carried the eyeshadow pot from bourjois!
Other Eye Products Im carrying:
- Maybelline Collosal Kajal
- Sephora Eye Pencil in blue (Did a soft, smudgy eye with this yesterday)
- Bobbi Brown Eye Pencil in Amethyst
More face stuff: The Avon CC Cream (Im still testing this out so no comments as of now), Loreal UV Perfect Even Complexion Moisturizer (HOLY GRAIL), Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate, Deborah Atomic Mat Lipstick in 03, and Clinique High Impact Mascara
