It’s World Oceans Day today and we are all for all-things-aqua! So for all the water babies out there, channel your inner mermaid and try out these sea-inspired makeup looks we have put together. From the azure blues, soothing aquamarines and turquoises to the verdant greens of the ocean, take your pick and get ready to turn the heat up in teal!
Do you love this teal makeup look or what? The teal eyeshadow is perfectly complemented by the bright pink colour on the lower lids and lips. Start by prepping your eyelids with a primer to make the eyeshadow colour pop. We love the teal in the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette – Royal Persia. Apply this colour on your entire lid making sure you do not go beyond the crease. Line your eyes with an eyeliner like the Lakmé Eyeconic Pen, which has a block tip that will give you a thicker line, and extend it slightly outwards to get a winged effect. Now take the pink eyeshadow from the same palette and line your lower lash line with it. Apply a similar pink-toned lipstick, and you are ready to rock and rule, girl!
If you are a girl who likes to experiment with your looks, try this unexpectedly bold blue smokey eye. It is a glamorous take on the good old black smokey eye, but with a blue twist. Start by prepping your lids with an eyeshadow primer and use a blue eye pencil like the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Kajal in blue sapphire to cover your entire upper lid. Line your lower lash line with the same pencil and blend it so it looks even. You do not have to be precise as this look works best if the makeup looks a little smudged. Set it with a blue eyeshadow. Using different textures of blue, one with the cream based pencil and the second with the powder eyeshadow will give you better depth of colour and make your eyes pop. Keep the rest of your face nude, so that you do not offset the drama going on in your eyes!
Golden sands blue waters
How beautiful is this look? Perfect for a day look, with two colours that complement each other so well. Start by prepping your eyelids with a primer and sweeping a golden eyeshadow all over your eye lids, and top it off with bright blue mascara! It’s as simple as that! Keep the rest of you face nude and let your eyes do all the talking. We love the golden hues of the Lakmé 9to5 Eye Quartet – Silk Route and for the spunky royal blue of the Lakmé Eyeconic Blue Mascara.
Ocean at your fingertips
The clean lines of this look are drool-worthy! Line your eyes with a blue liner and complement the look with manicured hands and blue nail polish. We love the Lakmé Absolute Gel Stylist in blue royale. Go ahead girl, paint the town blue!
For all you fun loving water babies, try this look the next time you want to change your look! Get the ends of your hair dyed in a shade of blue and embrace your inner Ariel! When you colour your hair, post-colour hair care is very important. So make sure you use a shampoo and conditioner that nourishes your hair like the TRESemmé Smooth & Shine Shampoo and Conditioner.
And while you all are flaunting your blue makeup at the beach and soaking up the sun, ladies, make sure that you do your bit to help protect our oceans. Use waterproof sunscreen, because ordinary sunscreen can leave a residue in the ocean that can harm sea-life. Remember to clean up on the beach, plastic bags look like jellyfish to many sea animals, and they try to eat the bags. So clean up after yourselves and use recycle-friendly bags! Do your bit to save the blue!
