Matte About You | Daytime Matte Makeup Tutorial for Indian Skin

I like Glitter, Shimmer and Frost!
I love Glitter Polishes...


When I first started experimenting with eye makeup, I found Matte eyeshadows were easier to blend. But then I experimented with different textures and boy! I was wrong. Mattes are difficult to work with, given the fact that if you over blend and don't blend seamlessly they often look muddy and blotchy. Like they just sit there, looking right back at you from the mirror. Not funny.
I prefer matte in the crease, no doubt but Satin works best if you just started with the trials. [I just mistyped Satan... :D]
I went a bit overboard with Contouring and warming up my complexion a leeetil bit. I am sick with the cold and my complexion is sallow and my nose swollen. I shy away from brown based makeup overall, assuming I would end up looking I had a mud fight. I was wrong, again.

Something is in my brow :D ignore.

So here, I broke all my assumptions into a certain possibility. A Matte Daytime Makeup featuring Browns.


I love experimenting with placements of eyeshadows into the crease and outer corners. So Crease it is today. Also, I used MAC Prolongwear Concealer in Nw40 for Contouring. I cannot find any other use for this one, my circles are gone and I don't feel the need for correction anymore. And I dislike the fact that this is very, very dark. Impulsive purchase when I had panda circles.


For Face:

Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation. You can check my review here.
Rimmel Stay Matte in Sandstorm
MAC Prolong Wear Concealer in NW40


For Eyes:
I used these three colours from Sleek Au Naturel Palette.
The Buff colour with an orange tone is exactly the shade of my eyelids. I skipped using Transition Eyeshadow today and just deepened my crease with this Matte warm Brown eyeshadow.
Lotus Color kick Eyeliner. [Love this, review here.]
Maybelline Hypercurl Mascara.

Cheeks:
Contoured with MAC Prolongwear Concealer
Bourjois Blush in Cendre De Rose Brune

Lips:
Colorbar Velvet Matte in Bare blotted to a dry matte finish.


That's for it. I filled in my brows and cut off some time doing my hair. Next time, I'll work on my hair, for sure.
Does it look matte flat? Let me know in the comments below! =)

  1. You look absolutely stunning.
    I am totally digging that matte look on your eyes. I'm with you on liking the other finishes a little more, though. Every now and again I do a matte look that I'm just so pleased with. Your look would be one of those looks for me -- you rocked it!

  3. This is a beautiful look on you! Don't shy away from mattes. I was a shimmer/glitter girl and now I can't believe I lived so long without mattes :)
