MACup Look – Smokey eyes and Red Lips

I so wanted to try out my new found love and that is Blue eyeshadow and here I am with Black Grey smokey eyes and tried to incorporate Blue in this look … not a Full On Blue but just a hint ..

Smokey eyes and Red Lips are not very good idea but again that’s why am here for isn’t it ??

On Primed eyes applied MAC Blacktrack fluid line all over the lid with Synthetic Brush

Applied MAC Carbon eyeshadow all over the lids with MAC 239 Brush

Applied MAC Smut eyeshadow in the crease with MAC 217 Brush

Applied MAC Brule eyeshadow to highlight the brow bone with MAC 219 Brush

Applied MAC Prussian Eyeshadow on lower lash line layered with MAC Deep Truth eyeshadow and Lakme Shadow Artist on top if it , removed excess with Eye Makeup remover

Applied MAC Blacktrack fluid line on upper lash line and MAC Feline kohl on water line finished with Smashbox Mascara

I have TheBalm Time Balm concealer in mid-medium and Clinique super Balanced Foundation in # 6

Applied MAC Sunbasqua blush on Cheeks, On Lips I have MAC Russian Red Lipstick and MAC Russian Red Lipglass , pressed lips on tissue paper to give stained effect .

In this Pic I applied MAC Luminary Lustreglass to add little shine just in the center of the lips.

Any alteration ?? Hope you liked the look and am sure will share your favourite Smokey eye combs ..

    Yaaaay…looks like someone is on a roll πŸ™‚ Another great look Rashmi – the pop of blue is lovely. BTW i love how this look draws emphasis to u’r gorgeous dark Hazel eyes.

        ‘awful day’…Rashmi, that’s putting it mildly πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I’ve always been an advocate of maintaining clam and logic in the face of adversity. Kudos to you for upholding your class act and not succumbing to a visceral reaction. Just remember this – ‘sticks n stones may break bones, but words will never hurt thee’.

        • rashmi says:

          yeah i agree with you on this and as you might not be following lot of Indian makeup blogs or that is what i think you dont know anything what all had happened in these 2 days and how ugly it was …
          Well this was def. a new start and am so glad i have some awesome readers here and I can always count on them πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

          • Isha says:

            Rashmi i do occasionally browse thru other indian makeup blogs – but don’t care enuff to comment. So yes, i am pretty much up-to-date on the maligning and character assasination that’s been going on. I know u like to maintain dignified silence regarding what happened earlier – and i respect that – but i do wish you would share what you endured so that the ‘lemmings’ realize the truth.

          • rashmi says:

            Oh God …. I thought you dont visit indian Blogs …. (except mine πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ and Isha it was and still special to have you around …
            and God did I told you how much I look forward for your comments and as we share high respect for C and Temptalia this makes me all the more connected to you πŸ˜€
            ahhaha and as far as my share …. where should I ?? …
            I am very emotional person and will not be able to handle things I guess so its better to watch and see how fairly i can handle the situation πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
            and a BIG Thank you Isha for always being supportive ..
            and when I was called “OLD LADY” only your face came in front of me and your encouraging comments …. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

          • Isha says:

            Rashmi, i have been reading u’r blog from the day u started it – i found u via T…use to always wonder who this ‘rashmi’ was when u wrote in the comments section:) In the beginning u wrote for another blog – and so by default i did peruse u’r articles there. I preferred being a lurker as the blogging scene was pretty new in India and i gleaned nothing new. But then when u abruptly stopped posting ‘guest’ articles i felt something was amiss.One doesn’t exactly need to be from mensa to figure out that all the snide comments directed at you was just a case of bullying. That’s when i decided to start posting on u’r blog – to show my support and encourage you. And as i continued to read, and u’r blog evolved i knew i had made the right decision. For me its more than our shared love for T n CM. You are so open, friendly and welcoming. I love u’r honesty – it reflects in your unbiased product reviews and in u’r readiness to improve u’r craft. Which is why, no matter how busy i am, i read u’r blog daily – i may not comment on every post – but know that i’m front and centre of u’r cheering squad. A big cyber hug to u Rashmi – u so deserve it.

          • rashmi says:

            I sware you have made me feel so special and now I think have i ever done this to my beloved in recent times ?? ….

    hello mac guru……..cheer up…..well what better way to cheer then wearing russian red………
    i liked the blue twist in black smokey eye……but in the closed eye pic the blending is not uniform…..haina…though in closed eye look the look is flawless….
    i dont knw why red lips dont go with smokey eyes………..i mean all big makeup gurus say so….but i personally feel pale lips with smokey eyes….make the whole look a little too timid…….i like red lips with smokey eyes…….i m confused…….

    • rashmi says:

      Hey honey πŸ˜€ yeahh am good dear and for how long I will think isnt it ??
      Thanks for appreciating the look … you are right the blending is looking little out of place but then it was close up pic but in actual it was looking perfect …
      thats the only excuse I can find now πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
      Have you seen Christine with smokey eyes and red lips … love her …
      i did added blue and thought it might look nice πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  3. Zara says:

    hihi…the minute i saw russian red i thought of Doc..for some odd reason its the shade i associate with her.. ;0 πŸ˜‰

      • Zara says:

        Ahh just came back home..i had to leave quick so cudnt complete my comment πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

        I like the addition of Blue to it a diff dimension..Its pakka too risky for someone like me who’s scared of reds but i can sooooo picture it on u…ur the Red Rash after all!!! πŸ˜‰

        I wud call this look as The Red Wave!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  4. archana says:

    A very attractive look ,looking nice on you πŸ™‚

    Rashmi, can you suggest a peachy blush which can give a healthy glow and will look like a bronzer too Two in one :)Any brand that can be bought here in India.
    thanks πŸ™‚

  5. Nia says:

    Nice Rashmi….I personally dont like bright red on my lips, but you seem to carry it well! Confidence does that!

    I have question though….I loved the way you did blue on lower eyelid…..which eye brush did you use for that? I love pop of dark blue or green better than all-over blue or green.

    Smokey eyes suit you well!

    • rashmi says:

      Thank you so much Nia πŸ˜€ am glad to hear from you ….
      i have used Eco Tools Brush here … tried with MAC 219 but it was too fluffy
      let me post the pic of brush tomm πŸ˜€

      thanks again Nia for appreciating πŸ˜€

        • rashmi says:

          the one with 5 brushes …
          Flat tip , Blush Brush , Concealer and 2 more ….
          let me find 5 th one and post here πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ ….
          Go for MAC I must say and thats what am going to do when I set my hands on this πŸ˜€

          • Nia says:

            MAC are so expensive…..I do think of buying it but scale myself back…..might get it someday…specially the 239…..

          • rashmi says:

            239 … I just cant live without that … GOD I need 2 – 3 more 239 … πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
            it is expensive but ?? the finish it gives is just awesome Nia πŸ˜€

        • Nia says:

          Keep up the good work! I may not post comments everyday….but I try to peek whenever I have chance.

          Was specially in awe of collection of your makeup….I have one drawer full and feel guilty to indulge in newer makeup…..but the greed to get more is always there…..I did look at your post of MAC eyeshadows to decide which ones to try and buy……and so thanks to you too!

          • rashmi says:

            Thank you so much Nia for kind words πŸ˜€ am glad you are here and our love for MAC πŸ˜€ what else we need isnt it ??

    thanks for the tip:)

      • AOYV says:

        Yes and especially you have the natural skin tone (not photoshopped khi khi khi – awaiting legal notice) to carry off all kinds of shades. Play it up πŸ™‚ I hope to see more colors from you and you have sooo many eyeshadows which you bought from your own money πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰ lol I hope you are having a good day after seeing THAT. See people who make fun of others are actually hiding their own insecurities πŸ™‚ (Now you know I would never say these things but I know you have endured A LOT!) Love you!
        AOYV recently posted..MAC Painterly Paint Pot: 1 year later and still going strong β™₯

        • rashmi says:
