I applied the foundation using the Real Techniques Buffing Brush, the applied the Nars concealer on blemishes and under eye are, also applied the L'Oreal Lumi concealer on the under eye area to brighten. Blended the concealers using my Beautyblender. I set the concealer under my eyes using the Clinique mineral powder.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Nude Mauve (swatch here)
I contoured very lightly, as Aishwarya had subtle definitions to her face but nothing too chiseled. I applied Medium Cocoa to the hollows of my cheeks and Dark Cocoa to to the perimeter of my face. I used the tiniest amount so it wasn't too obvious. For blush, I chose Max Factor Nude Mauve, as it adds the most natural flush but you can hardly tell there's any colour there at all.

Bourjois Mega Liner Ultra Black
If you look closely, you can see Aishwarya has quite a shimmery eye makeup. So I opted for the Nude Grey Collection palette. I applied the shade 'Under The Moon' on the inner 2/3rd of my lid and the shade 'In A Nutshell' on the outer V of the lid and a little on the crease. I didn't use too much of the dark shade, just enough to create a subtle definition. I didn't want to define my brows too much, so just filled in some gaps using Soap & Glory Archery Brow pencil.
I created a really thin, slightly winged liner using the Bourjois Eye Liner. I kept it really close to my lash line. For tight lining my upper lash line, I used Max Factor's Charcoal liner and applied 2 coats of mascara. Then I lined my lower water line using Max Factor's Excessive Jade liner. This is more of a Teal shade than Turquoise, so I dug out the GOSH LA palette, and took the bright Turquoise shade (middle row on left) and packed that on to my lower waterline using a flat eyeshadow brush. (This feels really strange to do!) Then I went on to put some mascara on to my lower lashes. It might seem like a lot when reading it, but honestly didn't take me very long at all to do the eyes!
MAC Lipstick in Rebel
MAC Lipstick in Diva
Looking at the pictures side by side, I can see that I haven't captured the lip colour exactly - but oh well! At first look, I thought MAC Rebel alone would be perfect, but once on my lips, I realised it was too purple. So I deepened it slightly by dabbing on MAC Diva. In hindsight, Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 107 might have been better.
