Simple Republic Day Makeup Looks Ideas

Looking for ideas to create unique and elegant Republic Day makeup looks? Your search ends here with this guide. So, read on and choose one to celebrate this Republic Day with vibrant colours and pride.

1. Tricolour-inspired eye makeup

Begin this Republic Day makeup lookhby filling in sparse and uneven eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil. You can decide whether you want to keep your brows light and natural-looking or want them to look more defined and thicker. For the tricolour-inspired Republic Day eye makeup, colour your eyelids with an orange eyeshadow and follow this step by applying green eyeshadow to the lower lash line. Experiment with double eyeliners by drawing white eyeliner (on the top) and blue eyeliner (on the bottom, nearing upper waterline) to brighten your eyes further and mesmerise everyone with your tricolour-inspired eye makeup. You can add white-based shimmery eyeshadow to the inner corners for a glimmering effect. Take your Republic Day eye makeup look to the next level with some strokes of lengthening mascara. Since you are focusing on eye makeup here, you can keep the rest of your face makeup simple and subtle. Lastly, complete your Republic Day makeup look with a red lipstick

2. Indian flag face paint

Painting your face using watercolours sounds fun, but it can also damage your skin in the long run. We’re here to help you add vibrant colours to your face using makeup products. For this Republic Day makeup look, start with a quick no-makeup makeup look. You can either keep your eye makeup minimal (as if it’s almost bare) by using a nude eyeshadow, or opt for a bold smokey eye look using dark eyeshadow shades. Once your base and eyes are done, dampen your fingers with a setting spray and dip them in orange, white and green eyeshadows. Now swipe your fingers across your cheeks horizontally. Spritz a setting spray and let it air dry. The setting spray will not only keep these colours on your face for longer but also make them appear more vibrant. Lastly, finish your Republic Day makeup look by applying a nude lipstick

3. Cut crease makeup

This Republic Day, give a dramatic effect to your eyes by creating the cut-crease eyeshadow look. Start this Republic Day makeup look by applying orange eyeshadow on the crease of your eyes, and smudge it well. Next, apply a brightening concealer across the lid and cut your crease in a clean semi-circle. Set it using white eyeshadow. Finish off your Republic Day eye makeup by creating a sharp wing using a green eyeshadow. Enhance your eyes with a kajal and achieve thick lashes by using mascara. For the lips, you can either use a pink lipstick or go for a tinted lip balm if you wish to keep your lip makeup simple and subtle.   

4. Mismatched glam makeup

Ditch the conventional Republic Day makeup looks and add a touch of mismatched glam with this one. Remember, a bold and alluring eye makeup can do wonders to your look. Take the orange eyeshadow and apply it on the eyelid and waterline of the right eye. Next, do the same with your left eye with the green eyeshadow. Elevate your Republic Day eye makeup by using black and bold eyeliner. Play up your pout with a matte brown lipstick that will stay put throughout your Republic Day celebrations.
