Vibrant Holi Makeup Looks - Maybelline India

Holi is almost here and you might have plans to either drench yourself in colours or host a vibrant Holi party for your friends and family. Whatever your plans are, you now have a perfect opportunity to play with colours and makeup. And in this article, we’ll help you get ready for Holi. 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.

4 Colourful Holi makeup looks

Listed below are 4 Holi makeup ideas that you can try this year:

1. Monochrome Holi makeup look

The best part about monochrome makeup is that it helps you experiment with various shades of the same colour. To excel in this Holi special makeup look, start by acing your base makeup as usual and then add a pop of colour to your cheeks with coral blush. To achieve 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

Start your face makeup with primer, foundation, and concealer. Then, add glow to your face 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 with navy-blue eyeliner on your lower lash line to create a show-stopping look. If you wish to go a mile extra and love playing with contrasting colours, finish off this Holi makeup look with fuchsia lipstick.

3. Glam Holi makeup look

Keep the base of Holi makeup simple and take your eye makeup up a notch with this look. For this 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. Next, use waterproof mascara for thick and voluminous lashes that won’t leave streaks down your face while 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 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. Finally, stun the scene by finishing your look with a classic red lipstick.

For any Holi makeup look to stand out or look perfect, you need to set your base makeup well to prep your face for the rest of the makeup.
