Independence Day Special- Indian Flag (Tricolor) Inspired Makeup

Hey Guys!

To all my Indian friends & readers..Happy Independence Day :)


Its India's 70th Freedom anniversary today. We got independence from the British rule after about 200 years of struggle that involved a loss of thousands of lives. It's a hard earned freedom that we owe to our nation's heroes that fought the mighty.
I'll credit the Indian radio channels for this super quick blog post. They've been blaring nationalist songs since morning. I'm not complaining though. I did tear up a couple of times.
The Indian in me just had to do an Independence day look. Here's one inspired by our national flag-The Saffron, White & Green Tricolor.






A lil thank you to Sunshine as well for holding the flag behind me while I posed in front of the camera. He says it was worse than working out. Ok whatever!

-I did not have a true Orange eyeshadow so ended up mixing a coral eye shadow and a MAC blush.
-I tried NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk on the waterline for the white stripe in our flag but felt that the look wasn't very wearable. Nevertheless, here's some photos with the white waterline. What do you think?
-I also had to mix 3 Orange lip shades  to get a gradient effect. I'm a lil obsessed with orange these days! My Instagram has all the proof (Just search for LipsnBerries!)
