I have this insane ability to duplicate a makeup look simply by looking at the picture. I know there are better skills to have in this world, but this is mine.
So here's how you can duplicate the look Nelly Furtado sported at the David Letterman Show recently. She's totally rocking the navy eyeliner, alot of us don't use this color as much as we should, it really adds a nice zing to your eyemakeup, especially if your getting dolled up to go somewhere special.
-MAC Bliss eyeshadow on lids, MAC Sketch in crease
-Elizabeth Arden Smoky Eyes Powder Eyeliner in Midnight (I've used this myself, it's the best, another option is Prescriptives Soft Lining pencil in Blue Black)
Line the upper and lower lash line with the navy eye pencil, including the inner rims of the lash line, and then squeeze your eyes shut to get color all smudgy.
-Black Mascara on the top lashes only (pick your favorite, but I'm really liking Maybelline Lash Stylist these days)
-MAC blush in Blush Baby
-MAC lipstick in Pink Apertif
-MAC lipliner in Plum (line and fill in the lips with this color)
-MAC lipgloss in Viva Glam V (dab on the center of lower lip, then press lips together)
This lipstick combination is my new favorite by the way. You desi girls out there should really try this.
UPDATE: I've realized there are alot of women of color out there, especially desi women, who are looking for a foundation that works with olive skin tone. Look no further than Vasanti Cosmetics for foundation and concealor. I actually met the founders of this line, Monal, Pinki, and Priti Patel at a South Asian Bridal Expo in New Jersey, and they are the nicest people I've ever met. And they know makeup. I remember Monal telling me she used to work for MAC before she decided to create her own line.

Most women who wear Vasanti foundation shade V3 or higher use O2 concealor.

I actually did this look on myself a while ago and was lucky to have a picture taken.
I've attached it at the right so you can get an idea of what the makeup looks like on me.
Oops! You missed it. Image removed.
Btw, I use Vasanti Face Base in V3 and Wonders of the World Concealor in O2.
