Traditional Indian EOTD

I usually do not like to go for such typical looks but oh well, it's fine to act a bit 'traditional' at times. These are colors that are incorporated in Indian/Bollywood looks most of the time, an amalgamation of burgundy, cranberry and golden pinks.

I tried to keep it a bit toned down by not exaggerating the liner rather keeping it thin and crisp. I did go quite above the crease as you may notice as that is the one thing that I have usually noticed in such looks. The key is to apply the color slightly above the crease and then blend it upwards.

Products Used:

-Urban Decay Primer Potion to prime the eyes
-Mac All That Glitters Eyeshadow all over the lids
-VOV Eyeshadow in a Majenta right in the crease and above blending it upwards
-Mac Warming Trend Eyeshadow on the browbone
-Mac Tete-a-Tent Eyeshadow to blend the crease color with the highlight
-Mac Fluidline in Blacktrack to line the upper and lower lashline
-Kryolan eye pencil in dark brown used to fill the brows
-Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara on the lashes

and you're good to go!

Getting a gorgeous Majenta-Cranberry color is important for this look as it gives it a burst of color. Mac's Cranberry eyeshadow would be perfect :)
