Diwali is a happy time for Indians, with a celebratory mood in the air. The festival of lights is also the perfect opportunity for us to glam up in our best traditional attires. If you are wearing a chic ethnic outfit this Diwali, you also need to ace your makeup game to become the centre of attraction. Delve deeper into this article to get the best Diwali makeup look ideas.

Diwali Pre-Makeup Skin Prep

On the auspicious occasion of Diwali, put your makeup skills to the test and flaunt a glam look. But before you bring out your makeup palette, you need to know that a smooth base is necessary for your makeup to look flawless.

So before you start putting the makeup products on your face, the first thing you need to do is cleanse, then tone, apply serum and finally, moisturise. Use the Waterlight Gel Moisturiser to avoid clogging your pores. The lightweight moisturiser will also ensure that you don’t have a greasy feeling on your face and your makeup doesn’t look cakey.

Additionally, pollution levels are at an all-time high level during the time of Diwali. Therefore, you need to create a protective barrier on your skin. The Mineral Matte Tinted Sunscreen will protect your skin from UV rays and also create a barrier on the top layer of your skin. Another great thing about this sunscreen is that you can use it as a primer before putting on your makeup. Moreover, the tinted nature of the sunscreen will ensure you get a smooth complexion without a ghostly white effect. Your makeup will look flawless on top of this mineral sunscreen with a matte finish.

Diwali makeup look

We have different types of Diwali makeup look ideas for you:

Glam makeup look

If you prefer a modern and glamorous look, you will have to opt for accentuated eyeshadows. Begin with using the face wash and Super Clarifying Serum before applying the Waterlight Gel Moisturiser and the Mineral Matte Tinted Sunscreen as a primer. Next, use concealer to get a clear base to do your eye makeup.

Use a nude shade to cover your eyelid before going ahead with the bronze stroke. Remember to blend the bronze tint smoothly using a brush. Remember to draw a crease line higher than the original one to highlight your eyes.

After you are done with the eye makeup, use foundation and concealer on the face. Next, use a blusher to highlight your cheekbones, forehead, and nose tip. In the end, choose a bright tint like red to do your lips.

Simple makeup look

Going for an effortless, no-fuss makeup look will also look charming with your gorgeous Diwali outfit. Start this look by adding two to three drops of liquid highlighter to the Waterlight Gel Moisturiser or foundation. It will help create a dewy appearance that glows from the inside.

Next, move on to the eyes and cover your eyelids with a pink tint. Using your fingertips can be a great way to blend the eyeshadow seamlessly. In case you want something a bit sparkling, add some shimmery eyeshadow around the inner corners of your eyes.

Next, use a volumising mascara to make your lashes look longer. Use a pink blush on your cheekbones to get a rosy appearance. Complete your look with a nude or pink lip tint.
