This is one of the easiest ways to observe the tiger season. All you need to do is brush an orange eyeshadow across your eyelid and pair it with a lip shade of your choice. You can either pick a matte orange or a copper shade, the choice is yours.

How to recreate this look:

  • Start by priming your eyelids with a concealer like the Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Liquid Concealer. This camouflages any veins or uneven skin on your eyelids and keeps it matte to help the eyeshadow last longer.
  • Take any orange eyeshadow of your choice and apply it all over your eyelid. Use a fluffy blending brush and defuse the edges for a soft look.
  • Complete the eyes with lots of mascara on your lashes and a pair of false eyelashes.
  • This look is perfect with any lip colour but a peachy nude would be absolutely gorgeous. Try coupling it with the Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Lip Color - Peachy Affair
