This year, India will be celebrating her 75th Independence Day, and while patriotism runs in our hearts all year long, why not display it on your face as well on this momentous day? Painting your face to resemble the tricolour may be the most obvious way of flaunting your patriotic streak, but there is a lot more you can do using just the products in your makeup bag! Here are five simple yet classy Independence Day makeup looks you can create this year.
Start this Independence Day makeup look by filling in your brows with the slim-angled tip eyebrow pencil that will help you achieve defined brows. For the tricolour-inspired eye makeup, start by using an orange eyeshadow on your eyelid and follow this step by adding a green eyeshadow to the lower lash line. This will help display the colours of the flag this Independence Day. Next, use an orange-beige lipstick to complete your face makeup.
Add drama to your eyes by using the orange eyeshadow on the crease of your eye and smudge it well. Next, create a cut crease with a concealer and set it using a white eyeshadow. Follow this step by creating a winged eyeliner look using green eyeshadow. Use a kajal to define your eyes, and complete this easy yet glam Independence Day eye makeup look like a pro. To give this look a perfect finish, pair it with orange lipstick.
For this look, apply a green eyeshadow all over your eyelids and use a silver eyeliner pencil on the waterline. Finish this eye makeup for Independence Day by using a mascara to achieve lifted, thick, and long lashes. Opt for a coral lipstick shade to complete this stunning Independence Day makeup look.
Ready to go the extra mile? This alluring Independence Day makeup idea will add a touch of mismatched glam to your look. Shape your brows and use orange eyeshadow on the eyelid and waterline of the right eye. Next, apply green eyeshadow on the eyelid and waterline of the left eye. Use a blue eyeliner to line your upper lash line and brighten your eyes further. Do not forget, bold and striking eye makeup can do wonders to your look. Complement your Independence Day makeup look with a matte pink lipstick that will stay put throughout your Independence Day celebrations.
You might have often painted your face with the tricolour while in school, but If you’re not sure about using paint on your face, we have the perfect Independence day makeup idea for you. Start with a quick no-makeup makeup look and enhance the natural colour of your lips by applying a tinted lip balm. Next, dampen your fingers with a setting spray and then dip them in orange, white, and green eyeshadows. Swipe your fingers horizontally across your cheeks to add a touch of patriotism to your makeup. The setting spray not only keeps these colours on your cheeks for longer but also make them appear more vibrant. You can go a step further by pairing your look with a navy blue bindi, painting your nails with tricolour, and choosing a classic all white outfit!
For every Independence Day makeup look to stand out or look perfect, you need a base makeup to support it. The first step of your base makeup should be using a primer to create a smooth base that keeps your makeup in place all day. Apply foundation to create an even complexion and highlight certain parts of your face like your eye contours and top of your cheekbones with a concealer. You can use the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool to find the perfect concealer shade match and use a shade or two lighter to create the brightening effect. If you wish to add some natural colour to your face, apply some powdered blush to the apples of your cheeks.
Finalize your makeup for Independence Day with ease by using the Maybelline Virtual Try-On tool. This tool helps you to experiment with different face, eye and lip makeup products virtually, without even having to spend a penny.
