A week back I had Instagrammed a pic of the products sent to us from the L'Oreal L'Or Luminere Collection.. This year L'Oreal invited us to "not just create a red carpet makeup look but an entire outift that you would wear to a premiere at an actual red carpet event"! (We loved the personalized invite and the video!)
Of course we were beyond excited! But when you get a combination of silver and orange (2 colours that do not go too well) it takes a while to come up with something that looks good.
I was looking for a good occasion and then mom and dad's anniversary came by yesterday. Perfect occasion with the dinner celebration..so we jumped in to create a look! And this is how we paired Orange and Silver :
(This is our first OOTD so please be kind *pretty smiles*)
Don't even get me started on how difficult it is to get good photos especially in indoor lighting! I am so thankful that Smriti is home for a week and it wasn't too difficult this time..
We used the Superliner Silver Gelmatic with black to create an ombre exaggerated winged liner and paired it with bold lips, Moist Mat in Orange Power. Kept the blush fairly neutral and used lots of mascara! To compliment the lips we went with a bright orange on the nails too and high heeled lace peep toes by Mango finished off the whole outfit.
Since I couldn't get proper close up pictures for the eye make-up last night, I did it again today to show it to you..though I kept the wing shorter this time..this way the look is more wearable.
And the bright bold orange lips!
And these are the 4 main L'Oreal products used for this look :
We love ombre effects, and also loved the way this one turned out, the silver slowly transitioning into inky blackness. You could go in for an exaggerated wing as well for a more dramatic look or a smaller one, whichever one you prefer.
Hope you like the look!
P.S. Review of the Gelmatic liner and Moist Mat lipstick coming soon! Stay tuned!
