When it comes to holiday-themed makeup, our top choices include Christmas and Holi. The glittery, glossy red makeup looks brighten cold December months and Holi gives us the free pass to play with the colours (quite literally) in our makeup kit unabashedly. But turns out, there is yet another holiday that technically doesn’t scream ‘makeup inspo’ but does remind you of a certain unique colour combination you can try — orange and green eye makeup look,

Now, since desis associate this colour combination with the national flag so distinctly, a simple orange and green eye can be too on the nose. Which is why we found trendy and chic ways to do this colour combo — without being too obvious about it!

One way to safely do orange and green eyeshadow is to do a mismatched eye look — which btw is trending hard RN. This takes the pressure off if you’re still learning to up your eye makeup skills and haven’t played with such bold shades before.
