With the ongoing pandemic, it's best to continue to practice social distancing and remain as cautious as we can. As most people work from home, we've become accustomed to staying in our PJs all day, wearing no makeup and basically putting in zero effort when it comes to our physical appearance. But as festival season is upon us, it’s time to get out your fanciest outfits, dust off your makeup bag and get your hair styling tools, ‘coz let’s face it, we’ve been in #LazyMode for far too long.
With Durga Puja ending on 26th October, many of us have virtual or (socially-distanced) in-person parties to attend. So if you need to look your best, but forgot how to do it--we’ve got you covered! We have rounded up some smashing beauty looks, courtesy your fave Bollywood divas!
So, without further ado, here are 5 beauty looks that you need to try if you want all eyes on you this Durga Puja.
Bonus: Those who’ve been working on their makeup skills during quarantine, now’s the best time to show them off!
You can never go wrong with red lipstick. Take a cue from Ananya Pandey and put your pout on display with a gorgeous glossy brick-red lippy. Pair it with a subtle brown smokey cat eye and a whole lot of highlighter if you want to up your glam quotient.
For all the makeup mavens out there, now’s the time to show off what you’ve learnt during quarantine. Clearly, this year has been anything but normal, so why not opt for a not-so-basic makeup look? Take a walk on the edgy side for your Durga Puja celebration with a show-stopping graphic eyeliner. Whether it’s a virtual or in-person party you need to attend, a graphic cat-eye is sure to make you stand out from the crowd. If you’re wearing a heavy embroidered or metallic outfit, this eye makeup look paired with a nude lipstick will complement your outfit perfectly.
A smokey eye paired with your warm-toned outfit screams mystery and elegance. But this year, instead of going for the classic black smokey eye, opt for an emerald green shade. Not only is it bold and chic, but it also goes well with every skin tone. You can even take things up a notch by applying the royal shade on your lids and a fuchsia pink shade to your lower lash line. Plus, this makeup look is perfect if you’re wearing a face mask.
Take a page from Disha Patani if you’re going for a celestial, bronzed goddess look. Even though our vacation plans are cancelled this year, you can still fake that sun-kissed skin by using a whole lot of shimmery bronzer paired with a golden peach blush & highlighter and taupe & brown eye shadow.
Adding jewels to your face came under the trend radar last year and it’s still going strong. There are two ways you can embrace this trend: The subtle way--by adding embellishments only on the inner and outer corners of your eyes, or the dramatic way--by taking inspiration from Euphoria and embellishing your entire eye section. Both looks are going to make you look like a trendsetter and help you get bomb AF selfies for the ‘gram.
