Great Make-up: Shreya

I will have the requested breakdowns out in a few days. I'm sorry I'm so late with it, I've been so exhausted and tired that I cant seem to do anything. I stumbled across this pic of Shreya and I became obsessed with the make-up. Yes, it's insanely photoshopped and the blush is a bit too heavy for my liking, but you can alter this look slightly and I think it would look great.

Since we don't have Photoshop available to airbrush and filter our faces to death and because too heavy a foundation would make this look a bit tarty, start off with a light to medium coverage foundation with a dewy or satin finish. Cover any blemishes and under-eye circles with the concealor of your choice. Set make-up with translucent powder.

You're going to need primer for this one, I'll be frank with you. This look requires matte browns and to make them look their best a primer is absolutely necessary.

Recommendation: Urban Decay Primer Potion

The look calls for the brows to be neat and very defined. Groom brows with a brow gel and emphasize them with a brow pencil. Pluck and stray hairs but be sure to not tweeze away too much.

Recommendation: Milani Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown, Ardell Brow & Lash Growth Accelerator

Apply a matte, medium neutral brown eye shadow on your lids.

Recommendation: Bobbi Brown Sable

Apply a a slightly darker matte brown shade along the entire crease and blend outwards.

Recommendation: Urban Decay Secret Service

Outer "V":
Apply a matte blalckish-brown eye shadow to the outer "v" only. Blend it into the crease colour so there is a subtle gradation of colour.

Recommendation: MAC Brun

Create a medium thick line with a dark matte black gel or liquid liner following the shape of your eye from the inner corner to the very outer edge. Do not extend the liner past the outer corner. Line your lower waterline with a deep black gel or pencil liner.

Recommendation: Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner, L'Oreal HIP Cream Liner in Black, Revlon Colorstay pencil liner

Lower Lid:
Dip a q-tip or a pencil brush, such as the MAC 219, in a matte black eye shadow and apply it to the lower lash line. Make sure that the line you make is thin but strong. Blend this out slightly so that the black eye shadow isn't as intense and appears smokey.

Recommendation: MAC Carbon

Apply a matte buttery shade on the browbone and blend into the crease.

Recommendation: MAC Brule

Mascara and False Eyelashes:
I have to be honest here. Mascara alone isn't going to get you the exact look. If you want to stick to mascara alone, curl lashes, apply a primer if you wish, and apply 2 to even 3 coats of a volumizing mascara on top and bottom lashes. Comb out any clumps with a lash comb. For added drama, apply a full strip of false eyelashes.

Recommendation: L'Oreal Voluminous, Diorshow mascara

Shreya's blush is very intense and I really don't recommend it for real life. A softer version is to apply a candy pink blush with a bit of shimmer lightly on the apple of the cheeks all the way to the temples.

Recommendation: MAC Dollymix

Apply a sheer plummy red lipstick and top it off with a neutral pinky red gloss
Recommendation: MAC Sophisto , L'Oreal Colour Juice in Candy Apple
