Rainbow hued makeup to chase away the blues - 1

Violet Nails

Va Va Violet nails are all the trend. Get your purple craze on with this perfect set of violet nail polish. Whether itÂ’s a flat eggplant purple, a delicate whisper of lavender or a metallic violet, thereÂ’s something so regal and mysterious about purple manicures.

You will need: Revlon Nail Enamel in Soulmate or Nykaa Pastel Nail Enamel - Blackcurrant Gelato, No.72.

Indigo Eyeliner

ThereÂ’s no better way to chase away the rainy blues than with your version of blue. Â’Tis the season to sport joyful eyeliner in indigo. In fact, itÂ’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 - Nykaa GLAMOR eyes Liquid Eyeliner - Whimsical Potion or Coloressence Eye Liner Pencil - Dark Blue + Free Sharpener to make a subtle statement by day.

Blue Kajal

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.

You will need: Lakme Eyeconic Kajal - Royal Blue or L'Oreal Paris Super Liner Perfect Slim - Blue 6G + Free Kajal Magique, SUGAR Twist And Shout Fadeproof Kajal - 02 Still Got The Blues

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.
You will need: Lakme Absolute Color Illusion Pearl Eye Shadow - Jade Pearl, NELF USA HD Custom Pro Palette Eye Shadow - Marine Green or Lakme Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow in Palette Gold.

Yellow Nail Polish

Yellow is popping up everywhere! This blazing hot trend isnÂ’t new but sunny is everywhere you look. The only major downside is that yellow isnÂ’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.

You will need: LYN Lacquers - Yellow Collection in Bee Witched and Nykaa Pop Nail Enamel - Sunny Side Up, No. 46 for a brighter pop of color.

Orange Blush

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.
You will need: Revlon Highlighting Palette in Bronze Glow or Bodyography Blush in Dusk Duo. Nykaa Get Cheeky! Blush Duo - Brazilian Bombshell

Red Lipstick

ThereÂ’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 NykaaÂ’s just the place to indulge your passion for red; whether youÂ’re pining for the pigment that stays on and on to mattes that arenÂ’t over dry.

You will need: Maybelline Color Show Lipstick in Wine Diva, Red Festival or LÂ’Oreal Paris Pure Reds Color Riche Collection Star Lipsticks in Pure Fire, Pure Garnet.
