Holi is almost here! While most people prefer drenching themselves in colours, some refrain from it due to the fear of allergic reactions. No matter which category you fall into, there’s one thing that can definitely help you add colour to your life and face and that is MAKEUP! Whether you’re hosting a Holi party at home or planning to attend one – we’ve got your back. Now is the time to keep those neutrals and nudes at bay and add a splash of colour to your makeup. On this note, let’s look at some vibrant Holi makeup looks that you can totally rock with ease.
1. Monochrome Holi makeup look
The best part about monochrome makeup is that it is usually flattering and helps you play around with various shades of the same colour to create magic. To excel in this Holi makeup look, start by acing your base makeup as usual and then add a pop of colour to your cheeks with coral blush. For achieving the perfect Holi eye makeup, reuse your blush, and sweep it across your eyelids. Complete your monochrome makeup look for Holi by colouring your pout with coral lipstick.
2. Colourful Holi makeup look
Apply your base makeup well. Then, get your glow on by using a highlighter for some dazzling shine. Shape your eyebrows well and elevate your Holi eye makeup by using a vibrant green eyeshadow. Pair the Holi eyeshadow by adding colour to your lower lash line with a navy-blue eyeliner to create a show-stopping look. If you wish to go a mile extra and love playing with contrasting colours, finish off this makeup look for Holi with fuchsia lipstick.
3. Glam Holi makeup look
Keep your base makeup simple and take your eye makeup up a notch with this look. For a glamorous Holi makeup look, use bronze or deep brown eyeshadow shades to colour your eyelids. Add intense drama to your Holi eye makeup by outlining your eyes with kajal. Further, use waterproof mascara for thick and voluminous lashes that won’t leave streaks down your face as you enjoy your Holi celebration. Go for dark to deep lip colours such as maroon or dark brown lipstick to complete this stunning makeup look for Holi.
4. Shimmery Holi makeup look
Once you are done with your base makeup, use the contour to sharpen, enhance and define your features like a pro. This will help you get sharp cheekbones and a defined jawline. Add a hint of colour to your face using nude blush. Seal the deal by adding lots of gold and shimmer to your eyes. To look the best from the rest, use dazzling and shimmery eyeshadow shades infused with metallic gold pigments. Next, top your Holi eyeshadow with kajal or eyeliner or both. Stun the scene by wearing a classic red lipstick.
