There are two types of people: the first kind who go all out with bold, dramatic makeup, and the second who prefer to keep it subtle yet striking. Well, the good news is that this week we have something for both—the minimalists as well as the maximalists, thanks to Bollywood celebrities!
From the regular kohl-rimmed eyes to the high-on-drama glitter, there is so much to experiment with in the upcoming party season. On one hand, Ileana D’cruz shows you a unique way of wearing kohl, and on the other, Deepika Padukone gives you inspiration to go matchy-matchy. Here’s everything from the week that went by.
Grey is the new black
The party season is officially here, and the oh-so gorgeous Esha Gupta is giving us major eye makeup goals. Ladies, ditch the regular black smokey eye for this stunning alternative. Esha pulls off a gun-metal grey eyeshadow with so much oomph, we cannot help but take notes!
Gleaming in glitter
Jacqueline Fernandez shows you how to amp up a black outfit! Instead of playing up your lips with a bold red lipstick (that’s the usual), play up your eyes using silver glitter. Cover your lids in this shiny hue and keep the rest of your face makeup minimal. Swipe on a soft pink lipstick to finish off your ultra-glam look. Define your eye makeup using dramatic falsies or simply go in with generous coats of mascara.
When nothing else works, a matching lip colour definitely does! If you can’t decide what lipstick shade to go for, just match it with your outfit. Deepika Padukone is proof that matching your lipstick with your attire can take your glamour quotient a few notches up. She complements her bright orange dress with a similar lip colour and looks like a million bucks! Also, whoever said coral lip shades are not for Indian skin tones… didn’t see this coming!
Bold and beautiful
Malaika Arora sure knows how to keep her beauty game going strong! For an awards night, the diva stepped out in a cute red dress with frill detailing all over. Shimmer lids and a deep red pout tied her glamorous look together. If you’re looking for a chic party makeup look, then give shimmer lids and a bold pout a shot. It’s sure to make heads turn!
Kohl-rimmed for the win
Thanks to celebrities, there’s always a new way to wear kohl on your eyes. Ileana D’cruz goes for a smudged kohl waterline and defines her look with oodles of mascara. She ditches the flush of pink on her cheeks for a rose gold hue and finishes her look with a glossy nude pout. Ileana’s makeup is the perfect example of keeping it subtle yet stunning. Yay or slay?
