Steal the Look: Parminder Nagra


Parminder's look here is all about the eyes. The fresh, minty green eyeshadow amps up the glam factor of traditional kohl-lined eyes and neutral lips. This is a great look to wear to an evening party or wedding this summer.

Steal the look with the following products:

Nars Duo Eyeshadow in Habanera, ($32). Use the minty green shade on the lids, and the amethyst color in the crease. Use MAC Blanc Type eyeshadow to highlight the browbone.

Fill in eyebrows with the Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil in Brunette ($22). This is my new favorite eyebrow pencil because not only is it a great color match for dark brown and black hair, it has a spooly on the end so you can brush the color through your brows after you're done feathering the color in. I'm finding it much easier to use than brow powder and an eyebrow brush. It's easier to put in my makeup bag for travel too.

Remember, with an eyebrow pencil, use short, feathery strokes to fill in sparse areas in the brows, and then brush over them with the spooly to soften the color and blend it into your brows to make it look like your real hair. Don't put too much color in, and never press too hard on the pencil. The goal is to get natural looking eyebrows, not fake ones like Dr. Spock.

But I digress, back to Parminder's look. Finish up the eyes with MAC Smolder eyepencil and black mascara.

Brush on some blush, like MAC Blush Baby on the apples of the cheeks.

And finally, swipe on Stila Lip Glaze in Blackberry ($22). This gloss is the perfect neutral for summer. You can even wear it alone with no other makeup during the day, it's that flattering. Line with MAC Plum lipliner if you want to boost the color, and your done. Gorgeous!

  7. Hi.. I've been reading your blog for a while, and had a quick question.. have you ever used Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer? There's a lot of hype surrounding it, and it isn't available where I live, so I was wondering if it was worth ordering online.

    Great blog, btw. :)
