It’s officially the most fun time of the year – When the nights are long and the dancing never ends! From Navratri to Diwali to the 15 other weddings you probably need to attend, the festive season demands a special kind of prep altogether. Our OCD side has already got us mentally planning our outfits and beauty looks for all these special days.
While you might need different kinds of OOTD’s for all of your events, these five essential products in your makeup kit can be enough to create various looks for day or nighttime festivities.
1. A Versatile Eyeshadow Palette
Choose an eyeshadow palette that has a range of shades to complement day as well as nighttime events. Whether you want to do a smokey eye or go with subtle pinks and nudes, an eyeshadow palette that has an array of shades is your best friend.
2. Must-Have Lipsticks
Ah! What would we do without lipsticks? If you’re confused about which ones to carry in your festive makeup kit, these three shades of lipsticks (other than your usual ones) are our festive season favorites! A classic red, a sexy nude and a cute pink – one for any kind of mood you’re feeling.
3. Essential Brow Pencil
Your brows are what frame your face-a feature that can make or break your beauty look so don’t forget to carry a brow pencil to make that festive look Instagram-worthy!
4. A Shimmery Highlighter
We’re especially thankful to the makeup gods for giving us a product that can amp up the glam in seconds! A well-tinted highlighter can work magic into any outfit you wear. If you don’t want to invest in a highlighter, a silver or gold eyeshadow can do the magic as well!
5. Voluminous Mascara
Long, luscious lashes will never go out of style, hence, a mascara becomes an absolute essential for your festive kit. Make sure to pick a waterproof one with a wide wand for maximum lash effect!
