April comes with the regional new year, a festival that is celebrated with full enthusiasm by different communities. It is named Baisakhi in North India, Pohela Boishakh in Bengal, Vishu in Kerela and so on in other parts of India. This harvest time is observed with a great deal of music, fun and frolic, dance, and of course delicious delicacies. And yes, it is the perfect time for you to look festive, make heads turn and allow your Pohela Boishakh makeup to do the talking. Baisakhi makeup is all cheerful and bright but not tacky or over the top, and all these regional looks are unique in their way. If you’re not sure of your Pohela Boishakh makeup look, we’re here to help. Here’s a Vishu makeup tutorial, Pohela Boishakh makeup tutorial and more that will make you dazzle this festive season.
1. Baisakhi makeup look
Start your Baisakhi makeup with a primer to create a smooth canvas for the rest of your face makeup. Go light on the base makeup since summers have already made headway and that might cause your makeup to look cakey. For a natural yet snatched look, we recommend skipping the foundation and going in straight for the concealer. One of the best ways to apply concealer is by using the facelifting technique. To control oil, sebum, and shine on your face, apply powder. Then, give your skin a naturally flushed look with blush. Begin your eye makeup by dabbing some eyeshadow on the centre and inner corners of your eyelid. Go for shimmery eyeshadow shades to give your eyes a sparkling shine without looking over the top. If you wish to go a mile extra, turn this look into a smokey one by combining brown eye shadow. Define and enhance the beauty of your eyes with kajal. Finish off your simple yet stunning Baisakhi makeup with classic red lipstick. Not sure of the lipstick shade that will suit you the best? Try the Maybelline Lipstick Finder tool to solve this dilemma. Then, slay your look by braiding your hair.
2. Pohela Boishakh makeuplook
Now is the time for you to play up your Pohela Boishakh makeup look and celebrate the day in high spirits. Apply primer, foundation, concealer, and pressed powder to build a strong base. Choose a shade that matches your skin tone and undertone. To find your foundation shade, head to the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool. For your ideal concealer and powder shade match, try the Maybelline Fit Me Finder tool. Next, enhance your natural radiance by applying a highlighter on your cupid’s bow, cheekbones and bridge and the tip of your nose. For the eye makeup, use dark pink eyeshadow and swirl the shade across the crease of your eye. Further, create a cut crease with a natural coverage concealer and set it with white eyeshadow. Elevate your eyes with an eyeliner. Add a regal touch to your lips and create a statement by wearing the dark pink lipstick. For the perfect finish, style yourself with accessories and don’t miss the red bindi.
3. Vishu makeup look
Keep your base makeup simple and almost bare. Once you are done applying the primer, foundation, and concealer, add drama to your Vishu makeup look by contouring your jawline and cheekbones. Make your skin look fresh and healthy with a rose or nude blush. Start your eye makeup by shaping and filling in your eyebrows with a slim-angled tip eyebrow pencil that will help you achieve defined brows. Apply nude eyeshadow on your eyelids and follow it up by creating a winged eyeliner look. Complete your eye makeup by applying a few coats of mascara. You can pick a waterproof mascara as that will help you flaunt thick, voluminous lashes without clumps, smears, or flakes as you enjoy your day. If you want to keep your lip makeup simple, apply a tinted lip balm or, conclude your Vishu makeup look by adding some nude lipstick that flatters your complexion. Lastly, look the best from the rest and have all eyes on you by wearing a Gajra.
