While Diwali is all about celebrating the triumph of good over evil and spending time with friends and family, it is also the perfect opportunity to get all dolled up and get glammed. You probably have your outfits, jewellery, and accessories all planned out, but what about makeup? Whether you are a makeup newbie or an absolute pro, these 3 Diwali makeup looks will have you looking and feeling your best this festive season.
Diwali Makeup Look For The Girl Next Door
Simple and charming – the girl next door prefers an effortless, no-fuss feminine makeup, so the best Diwali makeup look for you is one that is equal parts charming and modest. When doing your face makeup, mix a few drops of liquid highlighter with your foundation to get a naturally dewy look that glows from within. To get a flawless base that blends seamlessly into your neck, use the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool to find your exact base makeup shade match. For the eyes, start by laying down a pink eyeshadow shade all over your eyelids – you can even go straight in with your finger. If you are in the mood for a little bit of glam, jazz up your simple Diwali makeup by adding some sparkly and shimmery eyeshadow to the inner corners. Keep the look minimalistic by finishing off with just a few coats of a volumizing or curling mascara to get fluttery lashes. Add a rosy flush to complexion with a pink blush on the apples of your cheeks. Colour your pout with a nude or pink lipstick or go for a tinted lip balm if you want a really simple makeup for Diwali. Use the Maybelline Virtual Try On tool to pick a lipstick shade that enhances the natural colour of your lips and gives you a my lips but better look.
Diwali Makeup Look For The Desi Girl
Sugar, spice, and everything nice – the desi girl loves going all out with dramatic jhumka, a vibrant saree, a beautiful bindi, and lots of bling. Complement your extravagant traditional attire with an equally glamorous Diwali makeup that keeps all eyes on you. For this look, start your eye makeup before you do your base as the glittery eyeshadows could have a lot of fallout and nobody has the time for that. Prime your lids with an eyeshadow primer or concealer and instead of setting it with powder, pat on some shimmery gold eyeshadow on your eyelids. The sticky base acts as a glue that keeps your eyeshadow in place. Use a dark brown eyeshadow to intensify the outer corner of your eyelid. If you are feeling adventurous, experiment with a cut crease to take your Diwali makeup up a notch. No Indian makeup look is complete without kajal – line your upper and lower lash line with a deep, black kajal and add a winged eyeliner to turn up the glam. Get bold and dramatic lashes with a volumizing mascara and you are all set to let your eyes do the talking. Give your complexion a sun-kissed look by adding a peach blush on your cheeks. Sweep the blush on the bridge of your nose for some added flush. Balance the glitz and glam of the eyes with a soft, cream lipstick colour that flatters your skin tone. A lip makeup with warm shades of peach, coral, or browns will complement the golden eyes and add the perfect finishing touch to this traditional Diwali makeup look.
Diwali Makeup Look For The Boss Babe
Sultry, bold, and fearless – the boss babe turns heads wherever she goes, and she needs an equally fierce makeup look for her Diwali card party. Define the arches of your brows with an eyebrow pencil and make a statement with a dramatic smokey eye look - the bolder the better. Enhance your bone structure by contouring your cheekbones, jawline, and nose and sse some powder highlighter to illuminate the high points of your face and brighten up your complexion. What better than powerful red lips to tie the entire Diwali makeup look together! Outline your lips with a lip liner and fill it in with a bold red lipstick. Lock your makeup in place and set everything with a setting spray and you are all set to slay this bold look.
No matter your makeup style, these Diwali makeup looks are super easy to recreate, so even absolute beginners can be selfie ready in no time!
