A hint of this earthy rich wine color on the eye lids can make the eyes sultry and perfect for the date night or Indian wedding functions I should say. Its color which looks extremely beautiful on Indian eyes and Indian embellished traditional clothes. How to create this  look?

First of all, apply and eye shadow primer. Eye primers are available in cream, gel, mousse and stick form. they will help to ensure that the eye makeup stays crease proof and last much longer.

Then apply a warm wine or marsala color on the lids and blend it really well. Then on the crease you can either try an even darker wine or just dab your eye shadow blending brush in the matte black eye shadow once and then once in the same wine color that you have just used over the eyelids.

Use this mix of two colors on the crease and using a wind shield motion, you can darken the crease and also blend it well.

Then apply the same color on the lower lash line. Lower lash line is the area below the waterline where the lower lashes are there. Then apply some highlighting powder on the brow bone for that uplifted effect. 

Apply multiple mascara coats to make the lashes look thicker and longer.
