This Lohri, look stunning with these beautiful and bright makeup ideas!
Lohri is the best time to celebrate the end of dull dreary and cold winters and the impending arrival of bright and sunny climes. And there is something just so bright – asides from the bon-fire – about Lohri. Women decked up in their finest clothes and jewelry, singing songs, applying mehendi, relishing rewris and peanuts and generally being boisterous.
So to add on to the celebration, we’ve got 4 bright eye makeup looks for you to sport this Lohri to go with the warm and vibrant feel of the festival and make you look nothing short of stunning.
1. Shimmery eyes in gold: Gold is one color that can never go wrong for Indian skin tones. Being shiny and brilliant, it highlights your dark eyes, making them look seductive and gives your face a warm glow. Besides it goes in perfect tandem with the vibe of the festival. Top it up with glitter accents for that ultimate festive look.
Zuri Recommends: Maybelline Hyper Glossy, Gold-Iation; Revlon Colorstay Shadow Links Eye Shadow Gold; Lotus Pure Radiance Eye Shadow, Goldmine 540; MAC Glitter GOLD – MAC Heirloom Mix Holiday 2014 Collection
2. Teal Green eye makeup: Apply a layer of this bluish-green hue to give your eyes a refreshing, lively look. Contrast it with the festive red or yellow clothes you may wear or match it with blues and greens. Don’t forget to sweep a hint of teal on your lower lash line under your kajal too for that extra drama and depth.
3. Copper eye makeup: Copper is a personal favorite and goes beautifully with ethnic Indian outfits. Go for a smokey eye makeup by adding a layer of shimmery copper eye shadow in combination with earthy colors like beige and browns. Sweep it on the outer half of your lid. It warms up the neutral palette, highlighting your eye color. And the shimmer formula adds texture to it. You may add a pair of false eyelashes for a stunning effect.
4. Cornflower blue eyeliner: If you’re not too keen on applying eye shadow, but still want your eyes to pop out, then cornflower blue eyeliner is your go-to product. Cornflower blue with its cool, vivid undertones is capable of making your eyes look strikingly beautiful. So whether you want to opt for a basic eyeliner or a dramatic cat eye is your personal choice. Finish off with some mascara and you will create a really different and yet awesome statement!
Would highly recommend you to go understated with your lips while you try one the above looks.
