ICYMI, there’s only 29 sleeps till Diwali, and if you’re anything like us, the fact that it’s Dussehra next week is probably setting you in the festive spirit. We love the festive season for so many reasons – the vibe and the food, duh – but you know what’s at the very top of our list? The makeup. We’re talking bold eyeshadow shades, dramatic smoky eyes, blinding highlighters, and of course – glitter.
So to help you in the beauty department, we took a serious scroll through Instagram to find a handful of hella-stunning eye makeup looks we think you should consider trying come Navratri and Diwali. And because we know everyone’s beauty preferences vary, we thought we’d rank the looks from subtle to extreme glam so you won’t have a problem finding one that fits.
Trust: You’re gonna want to start wearing these ultra-glam eye makeup looks ASAP.
It’s still all about the eyes. Nothing says iconic more than this timeless combination of nude lipstick and matching lids coupled with smoked-out kohl eyeliner. If you are a minimalist who loves keeping up with the latest in beauty, this gossamer look might be your favourite way to don a brown-hued eyeshadow. It’s soft, chic and oh-so dreamy.
What’s a festive eye makeup roundup without a subtle yet glam soft smoky eye moment. Wear this eye makeup with a saree for major desi-girl vibes and you’re sure to turn heads. We suggest using the POPxo Drama Queen eyeshadow palette. Packed with 1 shimmer and 3 matte shades, this is the only palette you need to nail this eye-opening makeup look.
You’ve heard it time and again: A hood, volumizing mascara is all you need to brighten up your face in no time. Pack on the layers for some low-key drama. Alternatively, opting for a voluminous pair of falsies will also do the trick. Keep your base dewy and go for the same peachy hues on lips and eyes. If you’re exacting, coat your lip with a lip-plumping gloss.
Malaika Arora’s luminous skin and sultry shimmery lids are definitely worth a screenshot. The makeup look proves that shine on shine is the way to go and we’re very much on board with it. All you need is a silver glitter eyeshadow and a pair of falsies to turn up the heat. Team it up with glossy lips to make a statement.
Let your eyes do the talking. If you’re not into taking risks with your makeup, this can be your go-to style to switch up your style game. There’s nothing like bold smoky eyes- it’s fuss-free yet fashion-forward. Your social circle will definitely notice a work of art like this, it’s perf for your BFF’s wedding. You can get this look just right with black eyeshadow and this kohl eyeliner.
With radiant skin and glossy hair, Kiara Advani keeps things interesting in the beauty department. We love everything about this look- from her pink lipstick to subtle eye makeup accentuated with a feline flick. To perk up your peepers evermore, use a pair of coloured lenses in brown or grey hues. This is one of the most sophisticated looks, style your hair with soft waves for an edgy look.
This makeup look is straight-up art. If you’ve been considering trying winged eyeliner, now is the time to do it. To pull off this makeup look, you’ll need a duo of shimmery pink eyeshadow and precise liquid eyeliner. Just apply the eyeshadow on your lids and complete the eye makeup by enhancing your peepers with a winged eyeliner.
