Begin with a clean face and use some primer on your face so that your makeup stays on for a longer period of time. Use a foundation that matches your skin tone and blend it well to get an even skin tone. Then apply some concealer under your eyes to cover the dark circles and to even out the complexion. Set your base makeup with some loose powder.

This makeup look has a bold eye makeup so that you accentuate your eyes well. Start priming your eyelids with a concealer and set it with some translucent powder. Stick scotch tapes at the end of your eyes to get a clean eye makeup. Begin by applying a light brown eye shadow shade as your transition color on the crease line. Follow it up with some brick color within the crease and blend it right across the crease. To get a smokey look, add some black eye shadow on the outer edge of the crease and blend it in. Use a shimmery silver eye shadow on your eyelids and then blend it a little with the brown shade. Top the silver eye shadow with some glitter and use some highlighter on your brow bone.

Remove the tape and use some kohl on your waterline. Then use eyeliner on your top lash line. Wing it out into a dramatic liner look. Blend some black eye shadow on your lower waterline to get a slightly smokey look. To add some drama, apply false lashes and then add a dash of mascara to blend your real lashes with the falsies.

Using a contour kit, define your cheekbones, jawline and hairline. Follow it up with a warm colored blush. Then use some highlighter on high points of your face like cheekbones, tip of the nose, on Cupid’s bow and the bridge of the nose.

Use a bright colored liquid lip color to get the perfect pout. Pull your hair into a bun and adorn your hair with some flowers. Add a big, bright bindi and then wear your saree and traditional jewelry to complete the look.
