Match your eye-makeup with the mood of your social program on or around Independence Day on August 15. Use the tri-colour of the national flag to add drama to your look.

Aakriti Kochar, beauty and make-up expert at Oriflame India and Bharti Taneja, beauty expert and director at Alps Beauty Clinic shares some tips:

» Take a rich green colored eye pencil and apply it generously on the waterline so that you have enough for smudging it outside your eyes as well. Use a pencil brush to smudge the green eyeliner on the lower rim to create a smokey effect.

Settle it with a matte dark green eye shadow. This will give a more smokey effect to the smudging.

Apply an orange eye shadow on the eyelid along the socket of your eyes, use a fluffy brush to make it softly blended. In the end use a bright white or pearl eye shadow in frosty finish and apply in on the inner corner of the eyes.

This will brighten up the eyes. Outline your eyes with a thin eyeliner and curl your lashes to mascara it well to open up the eyes further more. Always fill in the brows for a finished look.

» Experiment with eye liners. A tri-colour eye liner will look far more happening. Give a twist with winged colored liners.

Pick them in shades of orange, white, green and blue to start sketching interesting blend around the eyes. Start with orange eyeliner on the inner half of the top eyelid and use dark green to extend the same eyeliner in continuation and flick it out.

Fill in the waterline with white eyeliner to brighten the eyes and use your blue eyeliner right outside the white eyeliner on the lower rim of the eyes.
