Friend's Wedding reception party-Eye makeup look

I just got back from my friend's wedding reception party and thought I'd show you guys the eye makeup look I wore to the event.
It was a Punjabi event with the typical Dilli's bling bling bling thrown in for good measure , by some strange coincidence every event I attend, I'm bound to bump into one of my Mommy-in-law's Kitty party friends, so its customary  to look the part of 'khaate-peete ghar ki Punjabi Bahu' ;)

Well armed with a license to dress up & deck out like a Christmas tree I wore a hot pink (rani color/magenta) saree with very heavy antique gold embroidery. (Gosh! that saree alone probably weighs a ton!)

Okay enough rambling,on to the makeup, I tried to keep my skin very fresh and moisturized.I used Kryolan TV paintstick as I didnt want whitish cast in flash photography.I buffed the foundation well to create a even skintone.
I wanted to wear more toned down shades of gold and bronze on my lids. So I used two of my most favorite shadows- MAC Musuem bronze and Glamour Doll eyeshadow-Prankster on my lids.I just used the tiniest hint of shimmery fuchsia on my crease and added a whole lot of drama with falsies. And I topped it all off with MAC cremesheen Speak Louder! Lippie.

Pleasantly the overall makeup look turned out quite glamorous & pretty!

      1. Review coming up soon, dear, its been sitting in the draft folder for 2 months now! My bad! But I'd highly recco Kryolan TV paintstick for flash photography videography etc. Its a medium to full coverage with matte finish,doesn't oxidize and makeup looks flawless for hours.Definitely worth investing in.

      1. Thanks dear so glad u liked the look, sorry I forgot the shade number will check it and post in the evening. :) though there are over 120 shades and I found atleast 3 shades very close to my skin tone so I'd suggest u swatch these in store first before buying

    4. That golden shade is looking so beautiful on your lids!! It is contrasting beautifully against your skin, and I can imagine how glam you must have looked with the lippie on. Very pretty! :)
