Easy Tutorial for Festive Makeup: Gold, Bronze and Coral

Hi everyone :)
The day before yesterday was Janmashtami, and in midst of fasting the whole day and doing a truckload of work for the occasion I did find a little time to make myself up before I sat down for the long puja.
I chose gold and bronze eye shadows and neatly kohl lined eyes to pair up with a peachy blush and coral pink lips coordinating with my yellow dress. The lips were kept matte to not overpower the strong eye look and keep it simple.
So here it goes.
Products used :
For Face:
Maybelline Dream Liquid Foundation in shade 04: Nude Light
Kryolan Dermacolor Camouflage Crème in shade DFD
Lakme Perfect Radiance Compact in shade 03 Golden Medium
Revlon Skinlights Illuminator in Bare Light
For Eyes:
Lakme 9-5 Eye Quartret : Tanjore Rush
MUA Glamour Days Palette (not included in picture)
Maybelline The Colossal Liner in Black
Lakme Eyeconic Kajal in Black
Lakme Eyeconic Mascara
For Cheeks and Lips:
Maybelline Bold Matte Color Sensational Lipstick in MAT03 as a stain and as lipcolor
Maybelline Cheeky Glow in Peachy Sweetie on top of the cheek stain
Festive Makeup with Gold Bronze and Coral: Products Used

With a concealer brush, put a bit of Kryolan Dermacolor Crème all over my upper and lower eyelids to balance out dark circles. The same process should be applied to conceal all acne spots and scars. Let it set for a minute.
With bare fingers or a brush, apply the Maybelline Dream Liquid Foundation all over the face, neck and exposed chest region. Let it set for a minute and layer if required.
Tight line (line the inner sides of the eye with black kajal) the upper eyelid.
Using a double tipped eye shadow applicator, apply the shade no 1 ( a pale shimmery white shade for highlighting) over the brow bone.
Apply the gold shade from the Lakme Eye Quatret all over the lids.
With the other side of the applicator, apply the bronze shade in the outer V and in the outermost crease in a thin line.
Using a blending brush, blend the two shadows. Line the upper eyelid with Maybelline The Colossal Liner in black and apply mascara in layers, generously on the lashes of the upper eyelid.
Here's what the finished eye makeup should look like :

Line the lower eyelid thinly with a white pigment (I used shade 4 from the MUA palette) and smudge black Kajal on the outer rims of the lower eyelids and finish with mascara.
For the lips, apply the Bold Matte lipstick, wait for it to dry, pat with a tissue and layer on once more. The vibrant coral pink gets the look together and makes it look lighter.
Dab the same lipstick on the cheekbones lightly, and blend with fingers, going vertically from below from the eye (the highest part of the cheekbone) towards the temple.
Apply a powder blush like The Cheeky Glow blush from Maybelline in Peachy Sweetie to help the cheek stain stay longer.
As a final touch, apply the Revlon Skinlights Illuminator in Bare Light on the highest part of the cheekbones, the bridge of nose and on the Cupid's bow of the upper lip. Let it set for a minute.
Finish with applying the Lakme Perfect Radiance Compact on the forehead and in a "W" pattern on the face: From the temple in a single swoop to the T area on the nose, then continue from there to the bridge of the nose, to the other side and in a single swipe, brush powder to the temple. Touch-up with compact where necessary.
Here's the complete look :
Hope you like it :)
