Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse Foundation: Awesome, BUT....


It kinda looks like Magic 8 Ball, no? Okay, let's pretend it is. "Will the foundation inside make my skin flawless?"

*Shakes ball* [Answer at the end of the post]

What it is:
Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse is a feather light foundation with a mousse to powder finish. It claims to last upto 16 hours & has SPF 8.

Available in 2 shades: Ivory Fair & Beige Honey.

I got Ivory Fair , which pretty much suits my MAC NC 25 skin tone.


Makeup For A Maroon & Silver Saree

This is a reader query. She will be attending an Indian wedding & would be wearing a gorgeous maroon saree with silver embellishments.

She sent me a photo of the saree:


If I'm wearing a saree like that, I am guessing my makeup will be pretty much the same as Vanessa Hudgens' here....


Eyeshadows:
Since the saree is so bling & I'm assuming you'd be wearing some bling jewelry too, I'd want to keep my eyes matte, maybe just a little shimmery color on the center of my lids & inner corners. A simple smokey eye look will suit it well:
  • A matte brown like MAC Espresso + something with a hint of plum-like MAC Sketch- on lids
  • A matte black like MAC Carbon or Bourjois Intense Eyeshadow #10 on the outer V, and blend it with MAC Sketch.
  • A pearly vanilla highlight color on your brow bone & inner tear duct areas.
  • Black pencil liner, like Lakme Kohl Ultimate, smudged on top and bottom lash line
  • Black  mascara. Maybe add some natural-looking false lashes too.
