You can rely on these stunners to keep you and your makeup safe (even when you’re slaying the stanky leg on the dance floor). What’s promising is the fact that each and every one of these wonder formulas have super loyal, lifelong devotees. Almost like a cult by itself.

Here are the best party makeup and beauty products to be party ready this season:

  1. Six cult beauty products for the party season - 2

    Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion

    This drugstore powerhouse that puts its pricier counterparts to shame has cult written all over it. Apply a generous amount of this skin-coddling moisturizer before you slap on your base for that sundowner you’ve jotted on your calendar. What’s great about this universally loved cream is that it works as a great night cream too. Loaded with rich Hyaluronic Acid, this formula redefines what it means to get beauty sleep. And considering all the parties you’re invited to this month, you’re going to need it.

  2. theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter, Shadow & Shimmer - Gold

    Assuming this industry favorite isn’t already in your vanity, we suggest you stock up ASAP. We’re obviously talking about the theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter, Shadow & Shimmer-Gold. Popular amongst millennials, this honey-hued luminizer is an ideal middle-of-the-road hue that looks natural on just about everyone. Here’s the catch though. This subtle shimmer is densely pigmented so you won't have to worry about a meltdown should you choose to strobe to galactic levels. The only thing that’s gonna shine brighter than you on that dance floor, are your killer cheekbones.

    Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel - Ruby Blaze

    Sure, trendy manicures are fun but they burn your pocket real quick. Considering most of your money is going go after one too many pina coladas this season, we’re going to give you a dead ringer for those fancy mani pedis. Presenting none other than our very own inhouse starlet, the Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel - Ruby Blaze. This plush crimson polish turns nails into a jewel-toned accessory. Now, even if you spill some of that yummy cocktail on your shoes at least your nails are on point.

  4. Forest Essentials Facial Ubtan Multani Mitti

    Here’s to the most established ayurvedic beauty brand in India. Holding the flag high with a strong fanbase on a global front, Forest Essentialsneverceases to impress with its miraculous desi formulas. The nation’s favorite? The Forest Essentials Facial Ubtan Multani Mitti. There’s something about their ubtans that take you back to when your grandma used to make a batch when you were twelve (secretly preparing your skin for your big day). The fact that this concoction is the ultimate pick-me-up tub qualifies as pure perfection if you decide to pull all-nighters.

    Kama Ayurveda Bringadi Intensive Hair Treatment Oil

    Ah, this us every Indian woman’s dream in a bottle. There’s nothing quite like it tbh. Flying of the shelves from literally every beauty store, this oil is designed to prevent hair loss, dandruff, premature graying and even serve as a power antifungal agent. If you haven’t used this herbal hair formula yet we suggest you start now. Ever wondered why your colleague’s hair always manages to look that good EVERY SINGLE DAY? Well, that probably because she’s got one of these overachievers on her beauty cabinet back home. Just saying.

  6. Maybelline New York The Colossal Kajal 24HR Smudge Proof Deep Black

    In our opinion, nothing stands out during a party quite like intense, black kohl eyes. Now, we also want to avoid the infamous panda eyes. So, we’re going to recommend THE most reliable kohl in the market. Yes, captain obvious, it’s the Maybelline New York The Colossal Kajal 24HR Smudge Proof Deep Black. This iconic product has travelled places, all the way from our rebellious college days to this day resting like a queen in our work handbag. Plus, multiple surveys prove that 87% of Indian men prefer women with beautiful kohl-rimmed eyes as opposed to a heavy red lip. So, what are you waiting for? Smear on some of that kohl magic and get the party started!
