Diwali is just around the corner, and we are beyond excited! It’s an excuse for every Indian girl to doll up in shimmery clothes and gorgeous jewellery – the things we love the most! This year, we’ve decided to dedicate our make-up look to the true essence of Diwali – which is to spread light and happiness. And honestly, what screams ‘happiness’ louder than bright colours? So ditch the usual pastels, and metallics, and go crazy on colour!

Eye Liner

If there’s one colour that is banned on Diwali, it’s black! Line your eyes in pretty teals, vivid greens and perky purples. For the super-adventurous, hot pink liner is always an option! Lakmé’s Absolute Drama Stylist Shadow Crayons are perfect for this look, as they deliver intense pigmentation, and can be smudged out easily.

Mascara

Blue mascara is the way to go! Not only is blue an interesting shade to coat your lashes with, but it also whitens the eye, to make you look more awake and alert! Curl your lashes for a va-va-voom effect!

Blush

No more soft pinks and peaches. Brighten up your cheeks with Diwali colours! Fair skinned ladies look amazing in a hot orange shade, while medium and dark toned girls rock a brick red shade like no other! As always, blend it in to avoid the dreaded clown look!

Lipstick

Want to stick to just one product to liven up your look? Pick a lipstick! Be it a neon pink, fiery orange, bright purple or bold red, these lipsticks can dramatically change a look! Go for matte lipsticks for the most vibrant, and intense colour.
