June is here and so are the rains! As rivers, lakes and dams fill up and the parched earth take a giant gulp, let’s take time off to celebrate makeup in every hue of the rainbow. After all, when the heavens part can rainbows be far behind? What’s more, makeup in every hue of the rainbow, from violet and blue to yellow and orange is available at Nykaa for the next two weeks at special markdowns. In keeping with the rainbow theme, we have tons of ideas of how you can go rainbow hued with your eyes, lips and nails. So stay colored up and smiling!
Va Va Violet nails are all the trend. Get your purple craze on with this perfect set of violet nail polish. Whether it’s a flat eggplant purple, a delicate whisper of lavender or a metallic violet, there’s something so regal and mysterious about purple manicures.
There’s no better way to chase away the rainy blues than with your version of blue. ’Tis the season to sport joyful eyeliner in indigo. In fact, it’s a wonderful hue to set off dark brown eyes.
You will need: Avon Retractable Glimmersticks Eye Liners in Starry Night Blues for shimmery nights out or Coloressence Eye Liner Pencil – Dark Blue + Free Sharpener to make a subtle statement by day.
Forget boring black! Blue kajal is trending and how! Blue like you’ve never seen it before from pearly pastels and cute cobalt to striking turquoise and shimmering brights. Come on, time to start experimenting.
Green Eye Shadow
Good news: Autumnal green eyeshadows are back! Wear it as full eye shadow or just spread a hint of it along your upper lash line and diffuse with a smattering of gold. In fact, anyone can wear a green eye shadow. It looks particularly striking with darker eyes, provided you steer away from mermaid hues.
Yellow Nail Polish
Yellow is popping up everywhere! This blazing hot trend isn’t new but sunny is everywhere you look. The only major downside is that yellow isn’t easy to pull off. Wear the wrong shade and you can look sickly. On the upside, just a dash of lemon on your pinkies and toes can be the perfect accessory to a summer wardrobe.
It’s probably the prettiest hue to liven up wheatish Indian skin tones. Orange or bright peach warms up your complexion the way bronzers do. Apply like a triangle on its side, with the highest concentration of color on the fleshy, outer two thirds of your cheek. The lowest point of your blush should line up with the top of your nostril, and the furthest out on your face should be close to your ear for a wide-eyed, sculpted look.
There’s nothing like a dash of the cheeriest red lipstick to brighten up your face. A cherry pout packs a festive punch whatever the occasion. And Nykaa’s just the place to indulge your passion for red; whether you’re pining for the pigment that stays on and on to mattes that aren’t over dry.
You will need: Maybelline Color Show Lipstick in Wine Diva, Red Festival or L’Oreal Paris Pure Reds Color Riche Collection Star Lipsticksin Pure Fire, Pure Garnet.
