Diwali may be about spending time with loved ones and eating an excessive amount of sweets, but it’s also the kickoff of the Shaadi Season, AKA our favourite time of the year to get glam. Luckily, our favourite celebs’ Instagram accounts aren’t only a treasure trove of fashion (and pose) inspiration, because plenty of A-listers take to the app to document some gorgeous beauty moments.
Gaining momentum in the Insta-field is the youngest member of the Kapoor clan aka Khushi Kapoor. The star-in-the-making is a makeup maverick who loves to keep her followers entertained with stand-out looks, and her latest Instagram post is proof. POV: Khushi’s makeup from a Diwali party she attended recently. Sharing on Instagram and flaunting her lit-from-within, her makeup look is one for the books. If you weren’t already excited for the festive beauty, you will be after you’ve had a long look at it. Her makeup doesn’t include OTT elements you would naturally associate with the party season. But something about the soft amber lids, velvet matte lips, and overall glowing complexion make it an obvious choice for festive mood-boarding. And, the soft feline flicks and sculpted cheekbones elevated it to extraordinary status.
The wedding-worthy makeup look is guaranteed to get you lots of attention. Want to try it too? Here’s a step-by-step.
Khushi loves rocking a glowy, dewy base and this makeup look is proof. All you need to do is give your face a 2-minute massage with your go-to creamy moisturizer. Then, apply a layer of Farsali Rose Gold Elixir to ace a luminous base. Alternatively, mixing a few drops of this serum with your foundation will also do the trick. Once done with the foundation, apply a creamy concealer to cover any uneven patches, then dab setting powder only on areas where you tend to get oily with a tapered brush to retain the glow.
Fill in any gaps in the brows with your eyebrow pencil and brush them in place with a spoolie. If you’re blessed with fuller eyebrows, you can just use a clear brow product to set it in place.
Smear an eyeshadow primer across your eyelids to ensure your makeup stays put all night long. Take a nude brown shade on a crease brush to define the sockets and also along the lower lash line. Then, with a flat shader brush, apply a shimmery amber eyeshadow all over the lids. Next, grab a liquid eyeliner and trace a winged eyeliner on the upper lash line.
Finally, apply a coat of mascara on the top and bottom lashes or choose a voluminous pair of falsies.
Use a cream bronzer along your jawline, hairline and cheekbones for a more chiselled look. Make sure you blend it well.
Apply a cream highlighter on cheeks and high points of the face, using your fingers to pat and press the product. Then, apply a rosy cream blush on the apple of your cheeks, blend it upwards towards the temple.
Finish the look with creamy matte lipstick in an amber hue to complete this eye-catching beauty look. Finally, you can make your makeup last longer by spritzing on a makeup setting spray.
Now, you’re all set to try it out for your next photo op.
