Whatever you be flaunting, be it ethnic or western, sport a different and chic make-up look along with each festive outfit to turn heads wherever you go! If you are excited to try out some new trends, but confused on how to go about it, here’s you answer!
Say it with colors
Love colors but don’t know how to use them on your face? Well, the best way to sport bright yet trending colors is to use them in the form of eye shadows. They will not only highlight your beautiful eyes, but also add a touch of bright hues to your festive looks. You don’t necessarily have to match the color of your eye shadow to your outfit but you can definitely go for shades that complement each other. Opt for jewel tone like rosy pinks, turquoise blues, emerald greens or chrome yellows, and let your eyes do all the talking! Try to keep the rest of the face simple with kohl only on the lower waterline, a swipe of mascara, a hint of blush and peachy or light pink shades on the lips. You can sport this makeup look with a printed skater dress or even an ethnic flared kurta and palazzo combo!

Hot n smoking
As the name suggests, this makeup trend is all about creating smoke and fire! How can any festive season be complete without at least one smoky eye look, right? You can go for a light or a pretty intense smoky eye as per your wishes and the occasion, but we guarantee you that any kind of this popular eye make-up will make you look drop-dead gorgeous. If you are a beginner in this field, smudge kajal on your eyelids instead of going for black eye shadow completely. You can go for golden or silver shimmer eye shadow on your eyelids and smudge black on the end sides to create a ravishing smoky eye effect! Go light on the lips with nude shades – be it on the pinker side or browner side – and pair up your smoky eye trend with any stylish saree and statement jewellery for a night of festive revelry!

Bold is beautiful
Though this may not be everyone’s cup of tea, this look is surely a killer way to stand out in the festive crowd! Sport cat eyes or elongated winged tips for the eyes giving an intense dramatic effect. Have a light or neutral eye shadow on the lids making the eyeliner pop out even more. Black eyeliner is timeless but just makes sure it’s of good quality and doesn’t smudge too quickly. Now with such bold eyes you may be thinking of going light on the lips, right? Wrong! This festive season, set your own rules and coordinate the bold eyes with a bold lips as well. Ditch the predictable reds and pinks, and go for wine/berry/magenta/oxblood lips to look your boldest best!

All about ombre
Ombre is a hugely popular trend which started sometime back and isn’t just limited to clothes and accessories any more. Yes, you can create your very own ombre look on the eyes or even on the lips, this season. Choose two colors for the eyes but make sure one is a light and the other a dark color so as to create a successful ombre effect. Put the lighter shade on the major part of the eyelid with the dark shade on the outer ends of the eyelid. Smudge the lower lash line with the darker eye shadow and apply a generous coat of mascara. You can also put on some shimmer powder on the inner corner of the eyes to accentuate the look further. Go for soft and subtle shades on the lips to make the eyes the focal point of the look. You can don this festive makeup look with anything ranging from a boho chic off-shoulder dress and tie-up gladiators or an indo-fusion look of a straight cut kurta and palazzos
With these makeup tricks in the bag, you are all set to slay during the festive season this year! Don’t be afraid to experiment and create stunning looks that’ll show them who the diva is!
