’Tis the season to glam up your beauty routine. There’s no two ways about it, so what will it be? Sexy or natural, dewy or smouldering. We say this festive season don’t be bound by rules, just get inspired. And we’re here to help. Get out your makeup kits and brushes, the party’s about to begin!
Here are some festival makeup ideas to rock this season!
This is the time to pull out all stops. Besides, there’s no such thing as too much highlighter or sparkle. And when the mood is all about rich hues and glitter, why shouldn’t the beauty look match? Choose to go subtle, sophisticated or OTT with glitter this festive season. The mantra? Balance. Want to own a shimmer face? Sharp brows, minimal eyes and muted lips are to compliment. Entering the disco ball territory with whispers comes handy with this subtle dream. Pro tip: Take it off right with baby oil or mild face cleanser.
If there is a best time to play with makeup, festive season it is. As much as we love seeing experimental makeup on the runway, we think this one’s easy to recreate at home. Use an eyeshadow palette or DIY with your fave lip color to create carefully careless paint strokes in the corner of your eyes. This graphic red eye is experimental and lets you improvise. To serve a final touch to this artsy vibe, choose the right balance between a warm and a cool nude. While your eyes do all the talking, let the base be simple, young and fresh.
Kohl eyes and nude lips, this timeless look is to go with any festive attire. We’d call it understated glamour with ethereal panache. Pro tip: While you play with a highlighter, let the lips be a subtle nude or pink. Who doesn’t love traditionally rooted fashion and beauty? Remember the messy bun with fresh flowers our mums and dadis sport? Feel free to play your way with hues and colors. Guess you’re stealing the limelight with this one.
NEUTRAL AND SUBDUED
For all of us who believe in natural wonders, there’s good news. You can go neutral with your cheeks, eyes, lips – all at once and still look fly. The trick? A hint of highlighter and a delicate flush of color on the cheek. Neither overdone nor trying-too-hard, a lit-from-within glow is always a win! A sleek crown going into neat flat waves or just a regular bun does full justice to this look.
PRETTY IN ROSE
Adobe red lips, gold liner and glossy lips. Who said drama can’t be demure? This look will evoke balmy evenings and long summer nights just when you crave them the most! Sport this look on any occasion with an otherwise natural base and muted lips. Trust us, it looks so gorgeous it seems tough to conquer. We promise it’s easier than it looks, and you’re going to get addicted!
