FOTD: Orange and Teal

South Asian weddings are the absolute best, especially Bangladeshi weddings. We have several different ceremonies so weddings usually span over a week. One of my closest friends is getting married this weekend and her 'gayer holud' (it's a type of bridal shower) ceremony was tonight. The custom is to wear colors like red, yellow, orange or green so I picked a blue and orange outfit.

I quite liked the way my makeup came out tonight. I pulled this look together really quickly so I'm quite proud that it's not messy :)

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
MAC Select MoistureCover in NC42 & NC35
Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick in Honey
Bobbi Brown Face Powder in Warm Natural

Nars e/s Mediteranee (on entire lid )
MAC e/s Deep Truth (crease)
MAC e/s Teal 'N' Tease (crease)
MAC e/s Gorgeous Gold (browbone and inner eyecorners)
Urban Decay Liquid Eyeliner in Radium (upper lid)
Sephora Flashy Waterproof Liner in Flashy Blue (lower lid)
MAC technakolhl eyeliner in graphblack (waterline)
Diorshow Mascara

MAC blush in Sunbasque

MAC lipstick in Barely Lit
MAC plushglass in Power Supply

By the way, I got a fantastic herbal facial on Friday so that's why skin looks so clear :)

Thanks! No, Indian wedding makeup is way too extensive so she's getting it done by a professional.
