Maybelline makeup artist Charlotte Willer took inspiration from the beauty of the Indian woman to create her look.

Then, she created an angular eye using the mascara, black liner, and gray eyeshadow from the Maybelline Pink Persuasion Eye Studio Color Push palette. Finally, she applied Maybelline Blush in Deep Rose Pink to the cheeks, followed by Maybelline Color Sensational Pop Sticks to the lips.

To the eyes, she applied MAC Metal-X Cream Eyeshadow in Young Venus and Warm Thunder to the eyes, before adding MAC Strobe Cream in Pearl to the cheeks. The finishing touch? A swipe of mascara!
