I’ve been meaning to get to doing this earlier but a little accident in the gym has rendered my left hand useless..A big thank you to my mom who typed this out for me while I rest my hand.
So the Indian Independence Day is tomorrow, the 15th of August and we are celebrating our 69th Independence day and to honor the occasion, I decided to do an Indian flag inspired makeup tutorial. It is super easy and super wearable so you can totally go out with this look tomorrow!!
Start with bare eyes and if you want your look to last all day long use an eyelid primer to prime your eyes. If you want your makeup look to be more intense then also apply a white base that will make all shades pop. Since I’ve wanted this look to be wearable, I have skipped the white base.
Apply a transition color to your crease area. Transition colors help blend in your skin tones to the colors applied on top and makes it look more seamless. I have used MUA Matte bronzer in shade number 3 as a transition shade. You can use any medium brown eye shadows for this.
Apply a saffron color to your crease on top of the transition shade and blend it out. You could also use a bright orange or a more muted orange depending upon how intense or how natural you want your makeup to look. I have used my 120 color eye shadow palette for the orange shade.
Apply a white eye shadow to the lid area. Make sure you use a flat brush to apply the color. Since most white eye shadows are not very pigmented, using a flat brush will help to pack the color on the eyelid and makes it look a little more pigmented. If you want your white to look intense, you can use a white eye pencil on your eyelid before putting eye shadow on top of the pencil. Blend the while into the orange that we applied on the crease before.
Apply a dark green eye shadow on your lower lash line and blend it in. Use a brush that is tiny and fluffy or look for a brush that has a smaller head, this will help precisely apply the color without spreading it everywhere. I have used the eye shadows from the 120 color palette only.
Apply a blue eyeliner or a green eyeliner in your waterline. I chose to go with a mix of both blue and green and used the Maybelline Turquoise Colossal Kohl (read review here). You could also substitute the blues or greens with a white eyeliner too for a more bold look. The blue or green makes it more wearable.
Apply a blue eyeliner to your upper lash line. I chose to go with the Maybelline Hyper Glossy Electrics eyeliner. You can either wing your liner for a dramatic look or stick to a conventional eye liner application for a more toned down look. You could also go with a deeper blue eyeliner to make the look more neutral looking. I wanted the eyeliner to stand out like the chakra in our Indian flag.
Mascara your lashes, fill in your brows, Apply a neutral highlight to your brow bone and inner corner and you’re all set to celebrate India’s Independence. I used the Maybelline Falsies Mascara for my lashes, the Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow pomade for my eyebrows and a cream highlight from the 120 eye shadow palette.
Happy Independence Day everybody!! Tell me how you rocked your eye makeup.
