Let's make-up with Bina Khan: Brownie Points

Either way, this is the brown girl’s LBD. From top to toes, this is how it goes — enjoy!

October 20, 2012

Since we are, after all, brown, what could be more flattering than a honey-coloured look with hazelnut accents? Add a strong kajal to make the look more formal or keep it clean with strong highlights. Either way, this is the brown girl’s LBD.  From top to toes, this is how it goes — enjoy! 

Make-Up Chart By Bina Khan

1. Bourjois Healthy Mix serum gel foundation:

This 16-hour foundation is the perfect base to this flattering look. Anti-fatigue, vitamin enriched, the 16-hour formula gives you excellent, breathable coverage.

2. Bourjois Healthy Balance unifying powder: 

With yuzu to create an anti-shine formula, this hypo allergenic, non-comedogenic powder is as good for you as it looks!

3. Rimmel Match Perfection Blush in 004:

This exciting blush provides you with a contour powder and two blushes all in one. Genius!

4. Rimmel Glam eyes in HD #002 “English Oak”:

This brilliant quad provides you with the medium, light and dark required for your natural eye. Medium in the socket line, pale on the lid and lashings of the dark in the corner. (For more on these shapes please look at my previous columns).

5. L’oreal Lash architect 4D mascara:

It has some serious oomph! And since everything else is so subtle, a strong lash is something that you will definitely need.

6. Art Deco lipsticks in “24” and “18”:

A delicious combination of brown and peach opens up the face. This mineral based, Vitamin E enriched lipstick treats as it tints.

7. Maybelline Colour Tattoo in “Eternal Gold”:

As a general highlighter on the nose, cheekbones, inner eye or browbones this product is worth its weight in...well, gold!.
