Tired of the same old cateyes and shimmer shadows, we were in need of some serious eyespiration to give our peepers a monsoon makeover. We called on Pallavi Jain, our makeup expert at the Lakmé Absolute Salon who, prompted by the season, showed us how to work the aquamarine look.

To keep Anuja’s look minimal and monsoon friendly, Pallavi started by prepping her skin with the Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse in Beige Honey (the tone closest to her natural skin colour.)
To define Anuja’s eyes, Pallavi outlined her upper and lower lid with the Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal in Blue to create a cat eye. Next, she merged the liner with the Lakmé Eyeshadow Crayon in Turquoise to give it an electric look.
She finished off with a slick line of Lakmé Eyeconic Black across her lower waterline.

“Blue eyes are very popular right now. Everyone’s doing them, even on the international runways,” says Pallavi. You can wear this as both, a day as well as a night look. If you’re headed out for a day date, keep your wardrobe simple and let your eyes do all the dressing up. If you’re headed out for the night, add some metallic magic to this look with the Lakmé Eyeshadow Duos. Wear coral cheeks and a nude gloss to complete your look.

For the other look, Pallavi decided to experiment with shades of green. She started by getting Anuja’s face prepped in the same shade of foundation as she wore earlier.
TreatingAnuja’slids as a canvas, she created a base in a vibrant shade of green (from the Lakmé Eyeshadow Quartet in Botanica) all across her eyelid. To create the brighter shade, Pallavi applied the turquoise Eyeshadow Crayon towards the edge of Anuja’s eyelids and lightly merged it in. She finished off by lining Anuja’s upper and lower waterline with the Eyeconic Black liner.

This look is so fresh, we find it absolute fitting for the monsoons! We suggest wearing it with a monotone dress in a contrasting shade (or green, if you’re feeling brave enough.) Though it might seem a bit difficult to merge the two eyeshadows, we assure you, you’ll get it right the second time around. You can even replicate this technique with any two colours of your choice; we can’t wait to try a lilac and deep purple.
