Photoshoot Exclusive! Pramita

I have always loved the makeup and colorful style of the Indian Culture.  So when I had the chance to do Pramita's Wedding Day Makeup - I was thrilled!  Her Sari was a beautiful turquoise with so many sparkling elements.  It was a dream come true.  And it certainly helped that she had the most amazing skin and the sweetest personality.

To get Pramita's look:
Start with a base with MAC's Soft Ocre Paint pot all over the lid and brow bone.
Sweep a light turquoise blue eyeshadow in the inner eye towards the middle.  I used a color from the Coastal Scents 88 Satin Palette.
Sweep a medium to darkTurquoise eyeshadow on the outer half of the eye.  Again, I used this color from Coastal Scents.
With a pencil brush draw a defined line in the crease with Scene eyeshadow by MAC, then trace back over it with Black Tied eyeshadow by MAC.  Elongate the appearance of the eye by drawing the line to match up with the end of the eyebrow.
Apply the light turquoise in the inner eye, then the dark on the lower lash line. 
For the cheeks I used NARS Orgasam blush.
Lips is Subculture lip pencil and Cherish lipstick by MAC.  Top with a creamy beige lipgloss.

And that's it!  I love any opportunity to use bright bold colors.  Thank you Pramita!  You looked so so beautiful!
