Navratri followed by Dussehra and Diwali is that time of the year when we’re both excited and hassled at the same time and you know why. The thought of looking your possible best is appealing but the word ‘how?’ brings pressure. While one can manage to get a gorgeous outfit as options are endless, but when it comes to beauty looks - that’s where everyone feels the challenge. No worries, Bollywood celebs are here to help out. And buns are clearly taking over but there are other hairstyles as well. So, if you were looking for some kickass beauty looks for that Navratri party, here are some flawless hair and make-up inspo.
What’s better than a traditional bun at an occasion which demands a dandiya performance from the diva in you. Kriti Sanon’s look is styled by Sukriti Grover in a Sukriti and Akriti outfit and statement jewellery from Satyani Fine Jewels. Go ahead with a sweep of golden eyeshadow on the eyes and a subtle shade of peach for your pout. A thick liner will help highlight your eyes while the minimal make-up will enhance your ensemble.
