It’s that time of the year again. The streets are lit up, rangolis have started taking over pavements and corridors, diyas are all lined up - both at storefronts and at homes. The air smells of ghee and fresh sweets, and the sounds of excited chatter float in through the windows, in anticipation of the festival of lights.

Diwali is the time when most Indians go all out—whether it’s with their glittering ensembles or with their beauty look, with sequinned nail art, sparkling makeup and glossy hair. And the best part? It’s only the beginning. Diwali might end, but the festivities continue with the bridal season right on its heels. If you’re looking to go big this season with your makeup (and we suggest you do), here is everything you need in your arsenal to shine your brightest.

It’s all about the highlights

Every time you move or a glint of light hits your face, your features should glisten. These stunning strobing and highlighting products will have your skin perfectly radiant for the festivities. Dab on to the high points of your face after your base and foundation, or mix a bit into your foundation for a lit-from-within look.

Sunkissed glamour

For occasions like Diwali, shimmery bronzers and blushes are the order of the day. Keep it warm for a sunkissed look and add a similar but darker shade to your lips for a monochrome look.

The perfect wink

Add drama to your lids with metallic glitters and shades that dazzle every time you blink. Complete the look with cat-eyed liners or just a swish of mascara and voila, your eyes are set for this sparkly season.

Time to gloss

Get that pout right with glossy lips. We’ve always been fans of festive reds, but deep mauves and plums are also on our charts this year. Try a solid lip colour as a base and then top it up with some glosst for a stunning vinyl finish.

Starry tips

Complete your look with bedazzled nail art. Try new things like sequins and other embellishments for drama, or update classic ones like shimmer French tips or neon glossy ones. Match the colours with your mood, your outfits and change as many times as you wish - it’s the festive season, after all.
