One of our readers, Shilpa, requested a breakdown of Priyanka Chopra‘s ravishing look on the cover of December 2011’s Vogue India. Isn’t it striking? To get this look, as always, start with careful application of concealer, foundation, and powder.
For the eye makeup, lightly sweep a chocolate brown eyeshadow (MAC Eye Shadow in Handwritten) over the lid, into the inner corner of the eye, and along the lower lashline (refer to picture above). Be careful not to over-apply the shadow. Blend a silvery taupe eyeshadow (MAC Eye Shadow in Satin Taupe) over the outer third of the eye and blend outwards to form a sort of triangular wing. Blend some into the brown eyeshadow along the lower lashline as well. Use your favorite highlighting powder or illuminator on the brow bone, above the eyebrow, and at the top of the bridge of the nose. You can even dab some in the center of the eyelid to brighten. For full impact, apply false eyelashes. Curl lashes and apply mascara.
Blend a rose-beige blush (MAC Powder Blush in Harmony) into the cheekbones. Finish the look by using your finger to dab on a frosty pink/coral/beige lipstick, like MAC Lipstick in Lame or MAC Lipstick in Plastique.
Don’t forget a bold red nail polish to seal the deal!
