Gone are the days when fair skin and light eyes ruled the world! Desi girls, like Frieda Pinto, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and Priyanka Chopra are on top of their game. Follow these colour schemes to enhance your inner desi-ness!
Gold, bronze and copper
No, we haven’t got our medals wrong! Warm gold, bronze and shimmery copper eyeshadow really bring out the sparkle in our dark eyes. Sweep a bronzer in golden brown to get a radiant, sun-kissed look.
Blue, green and purple
We Indians have been blessed with dark eyes and it’s time we play them up! Line your eyes in navy blue, jade green, plums and deep purples. Jewel tones do complement our pretty eyes!
Corals, reds and pinks
Lipsticks in these shades are a desi girl’s best friend! A blush in warm pink or apricot can also be applied to highlight dusky skin.
Introducing the LBE (Little Black Eye) – chic, simple and versatile! For an easy day look, line your eyes in black kohl. Take it up a notch at night, by rocking a smoky black eye – never forget that Indian skin and eyes are the perfect prototype for this!
Now that you have mastered these basics, go out and prove to the world ki dekhi lakh lakh pardesi girl, ain’t nobody like a desi girl!
