Festivities call for a lot of dressing up; making embellished outfits and chunky jewelry our wardrobe staples. Following them are iconic makeup looks which we carefully curate for every occasion. Striking a balance between the right makeup and outfit is something that we all keep harping about but find it difficult to achieve. So, to help you with that and to take some makeup inspiration from our Bollywood divas, here are our favourite picks:
Because kohl-rimmed eyes are just perfect for any traditional occasion. If you decide on tight lining your eyes with kajal, choose a soft beige gloss but if you decide upon a smokey eye, dab your lip with a nude-toned lipstick. Perfect with sarees, this look is best suited for Diwali Parties.
If you are someone who simply loves lipsticks, then a bold lipstick is your choice of statement. If your outfit ranges from shades of beiges, soft golds or pared down pastels then ox-blood, bougainvillea pinks or pink toned purples should be ideal. Pair that with a hint of mascara and you are good to go for any Diwali Party.
If shine and shimmer are what you like then a glimmering eye makeup is best! Step away from beiges and golds and mix them with bronze, pinks and rose golds to get that perfect festive look right. Great for a Diwali Pooja or Lunch!
Don’t you feel like a queen when you eyeliner looks on fleek? Yes, if that is your reigning moment, then winging it with your Diwali outfit maybe the right thing to do. You can choose between a well-defined winged eye and a dramatic cat eye to nail your eye makeup. With some wavy tresses wrapping the sides of your face, this look is something you will want to re-create.
Dewy Blush Look
If nailing clean makeup is your forte, then give this look a try. Sweep a coral or nude pink blush on your cheekbones, dab your lashes with some mascara and put a hint of lipstick to get that perfect dewy look. This works amazingly well when you want to keep your jewelry and outfit in the limelight.
Pair these looks with some exciting new jewelry that is upon our Diwali Store.
