Makeup Look - Traditional Malayali Makeup using Neutral tones, Contouring and Highlighting | The Fa

Hello my darling cupcakes,

Today, for the MOTD (Makeup of the Day) post, I have a rather special look here bringing me back straight to me roots which is Kerala. I love dressing up in traditional set saree and that attire just brings about a special ethereal glow in women.

Bringing a slight twist to the traditional Kerala - Malayali attire, I am wearing a set saree with a Kalamkari print. I wore this for my Brother in Law's wedding, for the morning temple ceremony. I did pair the outfit with Traditional Gold Temple Jewellery with an Antique Touch to it.

Here is the product breakdown for you all.

5) NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Biscuit

6) Bharat and Dorris Cream in No.8 to colour current under eyes
