Modern Indian Bridal Look 1 - Blue Smokey

Traditional Indian bridal outfits tend to include gold and red as the main colours. Nowadays, outfits have become modernised by adding accents in blues, greens, turquoises, even hot pinks!
A close friend who is getting married soon asked me to create some looks using modern bright colours so I put together this blue smokey eye, which was inspired by the front cover of Asian Bride magazine (Spring issue) and a bright pink Arabic inspired look too, which will follow soon.
Here is a breakdown of the products used:
Lanacane anti chafing gel as primer
NARS Sheer Glow in Syracuse
INGLOT concealer palette
ELF HD Powder
YSL Touche Eclat
MAC Strobe Cream as highlight base
MAC Painterley Paint Pot as base
Blue shade from Sleek Primer Palette
MAC Deep Truth eyeshadow
MAC Steamy to blend out the blue
Barry M Dazzle Dust Ice Pink as highlight
Collection 2000 Glitter Liner turquoise colour
MAC Contrast eyeshadow
Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Zero
Matt black eyeshadow to blend out the liner
NARS Laguna to contour
MAC DollyPink blush
Barry M Dazzle Dust Ice Pink as highlight
Sleek Lip Liner in Pink Rose all over lips
MAC Dazzle Cream in Gone Romancin (limited edition but you can substitute with any bubblegum pink iridescent lipgloss such as L'Oreal Juicy Rose Glow Glamshine lipgloss)
The headpiece is just a necklace which I fixed to my hair using bobby pins. This necklace is from Chohans on Stratford Road, Birmingham, UK
