Since the festive and party season is upon us, what better way to celebrate than play with makeup? And you’ve got to agree—nothing does justice to festive makeup than coloured eyeliners. Wondering what are the various ways to play up your eyes this season? Here’s a low-down.

One of the coolest ways to wear a metallic coloured liner is by wearing it right under your black winged flick. Sure, we’re black lovers when it comes to liners but a burst of glitzy colour on the eyes is sexy AF.

How to get the look: To keep the drama on your eyes with coloured liner, first create a long flick outside the eyes using the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Artist Liquid Eyeliner. Then use the Lakmé Absolute Shine Line in Sparkling Olive to draw a line right below the flick but make sure there’s no gap between the black flick and the green. Ooh la la!

This is when you can actually go from runway to reality. This look is all about the power of blue on the eyes and of course, trying out the dotted liner trend. Remember that this one needs practice but will get you plenty of attention!

How to get the look: Use the Lakmé Eyeconic Blue and draw a thick cat eye. Then using the same kohl, create two big dots on the waterline of each eye. Party makeup, we’ve got you!


Keep the drama below the waterline

You know how you’ve always stuck to using liner on the upper lash line? Break those rules because coloured liners look just as smashing when used a little below the lower lash line.

How to get the look: Use the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Line in Burnished brown , which is like a coppery shade, to draw a line on the lower lash line. Smudge it out a bit using a smudger brush to give the eyes a sultry feel.
