For us ladies, Navaratri is all about that sexy backless choli paired with heavy mirror work lehengas! While we may not experience the usual mirth of this festival and will be missing out on Garba nights, there is hope for a quainter and much more intimate affair this year. Close friends and families are the only ones who will go ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ over your ensemble and we found the perfect jewel-toned eye makeup looks to go with them…

Mix deeply pigmented emerald hues and blend it with blush tones to create this absolutely stunning eye makeup look! Complete the look with neatly drawn wings and several coats of mascara for added drama.

If you’re the minimalistic types and don’t want your whole eye done up in rich jewel tones, this eyeliner style is your best bet. Apply a thick gold liner on top of your usual liquid black liner and step out to take a million ‘golden hour’ selfies like this. \

03. Sultry sapphire

When it comes to blue hues, sapphire tops all the rest. For this eye look, pick a shimmery shade and blend it all over your lids and crease. Swipe some on your lower lash line as well. Use a volumising mascara to add drama and make ‘em peepers pop.
BB picks: Lakme Absolute Spotlight Eyeshadow Palette, Stilettos
04. Rich ruby
Out of all the jewel tones mentioned in this list, ruby is certainly one that looks the most flattering on Indian skin tone. The rich red makes for an eye-catching makeup moment. To make your ruby moment as dramatic as this, take the pigment right up to your brow bone and layer on a clear lip gloss for that added shine.

05. Calming coral

This eye look is so chic and will take less than five minutes to recreate. Swipe on a coral eyeshadow all over your lids and blend it out using a nude colour eyeshadow for a seamless finish. Put on a pair of false lashes on your top and bottom lashes for added drama.
