It’s time for a glow-up! The much-awaited festive season is here and what more could we ask for than the joyous celebrations that go with it? Add to the fun-filled days with gorgeous festive clothes and amp up your makeup to match your vibe. If you’re unsure which are the best makeup products you need for your festive makeup kit, we are here to tell you which are the must-have makeup products for festive season outfits…
1. Pout-worthy lips
You can never go wrong with a swipe of a bold lipstick shade to complete your ethnic look. Red and pink hues are popular picks for ethnic wear, and you can find different shades to match your skin tone. The Empowered shade from L’Oreal Paris’ Rouge Signature Matte Liquid Lipstick collection is the perfect choice for a sensational festive outfit. For a pink shade, try the Day Dream Pink lipstick from Faces Canada’s Long Stay 3-In-1 Matte Lipstick range. Both colours will steal the show!
2. Dramatic eyes
Kajal and eyeliner are must-have makeup products for festive season! As with lipsticks, a touch of drama given by winged eyes or cat-eye looks will change your festive look for the better. The added definition will make your eyes look brighter and bigger.
IKSU’s Inkredible Liquid Liner is waterproof and smudge-proof, making it perfect for those fun evenings with your close ones. And if you like that metallic shine, why stop at gold foil prints and jhumkas? Kay Beauty’s Gold Gel Kajal will add a sparkle to your eyes too.
3. Bold lids
You can up the ante by adding an extra layer of eye makeup to your festive makeup looks. It’s a great way to get a little more shimmer and shine into your festive look. Pick metallic and glitter shades to achieve the most intense looks. Colorbar’s Berry Blush palette from their Jacqueline Fernandez collection with 12 distinct shades, is what you need to nail any festive look. Brooklyn Orange from The City Mini Eyeshadow Palette range will make it easy to create a lasting impression with its 6 easy-to-pick, blendable shades.
4. Matching nails
A little nail polish can uplift your look, especially when you match your nail polish shade with the colour of your kurta, saree or ethnic skirt. Both Lakme and Nykaa have several ranges that are suitable to pair with your ethnic wear. Your festive makeup kit definitely needs a few shades from Lakme’s Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Color range for a high gloss finish or Nykaa’s Fall Winter range for more muted matte finishes.
5. Defined features
The last finishing touches your festive makeup looks can’t do without are a few dabs of highlighter or blush. The key to getting an on-point festive makeup is striking the right balance and finding what works for which events. Subtle highlights and contouring work well for daytime events, while evening wear calls for deep shades. IKSU’s Illu-Me-Nate comes with a highlighter and blush duo that is ultra-shimmery. For a few more shades to play with, you can try Lakme’s Absolute Illuminating Blush with four shades.
