Vancouver: Carli Lloyd scored three goals in the first 16 minutes as the US beat Japan 5-2 in the Women’s World Cup final on Sunday.

Lloyd’s flash of genius devastated Japan in a re-match of last World Cup final where Japan beat the American side in shootout, reports Xinhua.

Inspired Lloyd drew the first blood with only three minutes into game when she dashed onto a corner kick and drove the ball past Japanese goalkeeper Ayumi Kaihori.

Two minutes later, she received a back-heel pass from teammate Julie Johnston and tapped the ball in to make it 2-0.

In the 14th minute, Lauren Holiday put the Americans 3-0 ahead as she volleyed on mis-clearance by the hapless Japanese defender Azusa Iwashimizu.

The 32-year-old Lloyd completed her hat-trick two minutes later with an amazing half-field-long lob.

Japanese forward Yiki Ogimi pulled one back in the 27th minute when she brushed aside Johnston and sent a curved shot past American goalkeeper Hope Solo.

In the 52nd minute, Japanese playmaker Aya Miyama sent the ball into the area and Johnston headed in an own goal when she tried to clear it.

Midfielder Tobin Heath regained the three-goal advantage for the U.S. side with a blank-point shot after two minutes.

Make-up expert Niti Luthra suggests how to create different looks:

* Black and grey combination: Apply ash grey eye shadow and contour it with black eye shadow. Then put lots of kohl and mascara. Follow it up with silver highlighter on brow-bone. Choose medium tone blush for cheeks. Finish the look with a red lipstick.

* Dual tone look: Blend colours like deep blue and emerald green in equal proportion. It will turn into ash colour and then contour with black colour. If you are wearing a blue garment, use only blue eye shadow and contour with black shade giving a V-shape in corner of the eyes. Then use a silver highlighter on top. Similarly, you can create the smokey look with green shade. Apply a medium tone blush to your cheeks with a nude lip colour.
