It is wedding season and we are sure most of you must be busy prepping up for your looks. One thing you can't go wrong about is your makeup. After all, it is your makeup that completes the entire look and makes you stand out.
Shimmery eyes with nude lips are one of the hottest makeup trends of the season. It is just the look you want for a night event or party where you want to highlight your eyes and keep the rest of your face subtle. If you don't know how to recreate it, you have landed on the right page.
We asked Professional Makeup Artist and Trainer, Sonia Jakhu to decode the shimmery eyes and nude lips makeup look. Here is a step by step guide.
Step 1: CTM
The makeup expert shared that one must begin with CTM (cleansing, toning, and moisturising) to prep the skin.
Step 2: Colour Corrector/ Concealer
Use a concealer or colour corrector to cover up any blemishes, marks or pigmentation on the face. Make sure you gently pat the product into the skin and not be harsh with the brush or blender as it can lead to the formation of harsh lines.
Step 3: Foundation
Pick the correct foundation shade according to your skin colour and blend it well into your skin. Make sure the colour is not lighter or darker than your skin tone or it can spoil your makeup base. Set the foundation with a loose powder or setting powder.
Step 4: Groom Eyebrows
Using a spooly, brush your hair in an up and out direction. Fill in the gaps using an eyebrow gel, powder, or a brown eyeshadow. Avoid using black on the eyebrows.

Step 5: Shimmery Eye Makeup
Take some brown eyeshadow and apply it to the crease area. Then sweep the colour all over your upper lid. Take a darker brown and intensify the inner and outer corners of your eyes. Blend the two shades well.
Take some glitter and apply it to the center of the lid. Blend the corner with the dark brown colour again. The expert says that blending is the key to any eye makeup so blending can help achieve the desired look.
Using an eyeliner, define your eyes. You can give it a sharp winged liner or a smudged liner for that smokey finish according to your preference.
Apply kohl on the lower lash line and smudge it to give a smokey effect. Avoid using kajal if your eyes are small. In this case, you can instead use a white eye pencil as it makes your eyes look bigger.
Finish off by applying a pair of eyelashes according to your eye shape.
Step 6: Contour
To give your face a chiseled effect, start to contour your cheekbones, nose, jawline, and forehead. It clearly depends on the structure of your face.
Step 7: Blush And Highlight
Take a fluffy blush brush and apply it to the cheekbones. Make sure the blush blends well with the contour. Follow with a highlighter. Highlight the bridge of the nose, cheekbones, forehead, and centre of the chin.
Step 8: Glossy Lips
Outline your lips with a nude lip liner and then fill with a beautiful nude lipstick of your choice. Apply some clear gloss on the center of the lip which will give your lips a fuller and plump look.
