Its Monday and I hope everyone is starting off the week on a positive note 😉
My Monday started with my beloved NW35 concealer falling and shattering to bits!!… luckily I was almost at the end of it.. or it would have been a moment when tears would have flowed, as its my favourite..sigh.. Anyways, I did have a backup as I always get a new one once its almost reaching the end!!..sooo I could do Makeup Monday!..yay
I have been wanting to recreate this look for a while..so finally today got down to doing it..its a great night time look using Macs Mocha lipstick. I love this lipstick and it is most easily one of my all time favourite lipsticks!!.
It is a satin finish lipstick and so is nice and creamy on the lips. Mocha is a peachy-brown lipstick with a satin finish. It is very pigmented and therefore I love it as I am not a fan of sheer lipsticks. Also, compared to some other Mac lipsticks it is not drying on the lips.
Now here is a picture of Kareena Kapoor wearing a similar shade and I think the makeup on her looks fab!!… I tried to recreate the look using Macs Mocha lipstick and dark liner.
I used Macs Lipliner in Boldly Bare that is a great nude liner and then Macs Mocha on top and a light gloss from Revlon.
I love the look with black and think it looks really cool and sophisticated for an evening out with friends or even a date night with that someone special! 😉
Now Kareena Kapoor looks Fabulous in the photo but I wanted to show you my version using Mocha..
Products Used to create this look were
First I primed my face with Nivea Moisturizer (Aqua Sensation)
Then put on my prolong wear concealer in NW35 and followed it with my foundation in NC42 but this time I got me a new foundation from Makeup Forever in Caramel.
I mixed a little of both the foundations as the Makeup Forever is a little too dark for me as I could not find a shade to match me here in Hong kong so had to ask a friend to get it for me ..anyways, I made it work and its really good for photographs as that is what many reviews say about it.
let the make up sit for a min or two then I filled in my eyebrows with a eyebrow pencil from Dolly Wink.
Used Nars LOVEJOY as a bronzer and Nars Taj Mahal as a blush. Lovejoy is a brown/Bronze blush with a little bit of golden glitter in it..love it!!!.. and Taj Mahal is a vibrant orangy looking blush but is super flattering on tan skin!
yes, I have collected a few makeup products over the years and love them all to bits ..hehehe.
On my eyes I used a dark brown eyeshadow from NYX and nothing else, then lined them with eyeliner from Dolly Wink and lined my water line with Urban Decays 24/7 glide on Pencil in Zero.
Mascara used my Makeup Forever Aqua Smoky lash.
Lips- I used Macs Boldly bare Lipliner and Macs Mocha lipstick with Revlons lip sheen gloss in 03.
Hope you all have a great week ahead..
