New Delhi, Aug 11: 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. Experts have suggest different looks:

Aakriti Kochar, beauty and make-up expert at Oriflame India and Bharti Taneja, beauty expert and Director at Alps Beauty Clinic, have shared inputs:

* Take a rich green coloured 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 eyeshadow. This will give a more smokey effect to the smudging.

Apply an orange eyeshadow 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 eyeshadow 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 coloured 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.

Curl your lashes and mascara well to open up the eyes for a bigger effect.

* Try a colourful mascara as it will not only give you the desired look but also add a dose of drama.

* To try something extremely different from the crowd, let your eyes speak with painting. There are number of beauty clinics where you can visit to decorate your eyes with beautiful paintings like of a freedom fighters, politicians, flags and chakras.

Everything traditional is the new contemporary

wedding bride jewellery

New Delhi, Jan 9: Most modern brides these days are opting for a traditional look for their wedding day rather than a contemporary one but if you want to give a modern makeover to your traditional designs, try out some evergreen pieces.

Shreedevi Deshpande Puri, Head of Design at Ganjam, lists down some trends:

* Golden Heritage: The traditional south Indian ‘Kundalavellai’ style of jewellery is being revisited by brides. Beautifully crafted in closed set 22 carat gold, these pieces showcase the beauty of rubies with accents of emeralds. Few Jewellery houses take pride in continuing this tradition which is becoming very rare.

Brides are looking to wear traditional pieces which could be family heirlooms or new pieces crafted keeping the integrity of the design and the craft. Unusual pieces like the Talai saman (set of head ornaments), The Vanki (arm band) and the Odiyanam (waist belt) are coveted.

* Wearing a legacy: Going back to the roots, this style of south Indian closed set diamond jewellery is seeing a growing popularity among young brides, especially for the wedding ceremony. A new take on this would be inspiration-based collections which is a break-away from the limited designs.

Tarang Arora, Creative Director and CEO of Amrapali Jewels, speaks about his favourite.

Whether it’s the Indian bridal Nath that has been passed on by generations of brides or the Maangtikka or Mathapatti that are now in every bride’s trousseau, no Indian wedding can be complete without these traditional elements.
