I have a very exciting post today, I have collaborated with Aakriti Rana who is a fashion blogger at La Chica Loca Blog. Not only is she absolutely stunning but also a sweat heart with an incredible sense of styling. I love going through her Instagram gallery and can't stop myself from double tapping each and every one of her pictures. I love how edgy and chic her style is, she is a true fashionista.
I usually only do makeup looks but leave the styling part out but today I have teamed up with Aakriti to show you two makeup looks and a hairstyle to go along with the look that she has styled.
I am absolutely in love with wearing monochrome these days with a pop of bright colour on my lips, so when I saw her outfit, I knew we had to do a bright lip. I kept the eyes fairly simple by drawing a quick winged liner using the Colorbar Ultimate Eyeliner in Ultimate black to line my upper lashes with a golden base ( you can use any golden eyeshadow you like and pat it over your entire eyelids) Draw a line as close to your lash line and then draw a flick starting from your lower lashes and moving towards the end of your eyebrows. Draw an isosceles triangle pulling the line inwards and you've got yourself a perfect winged liner. Curl your lashes and add tons of mascara, here I used the Maybelline The Falsies mascara. To highlight the eyes add a little bit of a shimmery white shadow on the inner corner of your eyes and on the brow bone. For the bright pop of colour I chose a beautiful bright fuchsia pink from the Rimmel Apocalips range in the shade Apocalyptic. I love how long lasting and easy to wear this one is.
Inspired by her beautiful Zara heels, I decided to do another makeup look using an eye pencil in the same shade. I used the Maybelline Colour Crayon in Ocean Blue to line my lashes, I used the same technique as the winged liner but with out any eyeshadow under. I used the same mascara, and finished the look with the new Revlon Moisture Stain in Barcelona Nights.
For a casual look you can leave your hair down, but if you'd like a more formal look you can throw your hair in a messy bun. I will be posting a full tutorial on this hairstyle so make sure you subscribe to my Youtube Channel here.
Here's what she has to say about her outfit
So my today’s look is all about being semi-formal. Ever had those days when you have to go to office and still wan to dress up and look gorgeous in those boring formals? Well I have a perfect solution for that. I have picked a simple b/w striped maxi from Billa Bong and wore it with a black Zara blazer. To make it look a little funky, I added some silver accessories, contrasting Zara heels and carried a barrel bag by DKNY.
