Colorblock your flag!

I used the Palette from Sleek's Caribbean Collection to recreate the colours/flag of my country of origin (India, if you did not guess). My inspiration for this are the Pixiwoo sister's who recently created a Union Jack eyeshadow look.

Keeping in mind the countless colorblocking looks I've seen on the runway, this would totally be on trend wouldn't it?

I could recreate the exact flag but I did not want it to be that literal. Instead I brought the orange colour right up to the brow and then down to the nose bridge as a contour. A thick, rounded brow would work well with the look I thought.



I used Barry M's White Kohl Pencil to line the waterline heavily and topped up the orange shadow with Sleek's Pout Polish in Bonaire. I love a glossy eye!


Try colorblocking or recreating your country's flag girls. There can be SO many ways of interpreting it.

I've done my Ukrainian flag (yellow and blue) with Sleek's Sunset palette before :) The colors there were the exact match of the colors on Ukrainian flag.
