Written by Urvi DalalOct 18, 2019

Festivals and weddings provide you the perfect excuses to bring out all the shimmer makeup products that you have shunned for the better part of the year and tucked at the back of your wardrobe.

If you have always liked shimmer makeup, but have been shying away from wearing it because of your overt favouritism for all things matte, then we’ve got something that’s going to make you really happy. We’ve curated some shimmer makeup looks from our favourite Bollywood divas that have left us completely in awe. Read on to find out some amazing ways to include a pop of shimmer in your festive makeup.

Shimmery eye makeup

Rose gold shimmery eye makeup looks are absolutely lit, and we love how subtle yet classy Deepika Padukone’s eye makeup look is. Since it’s a festive look, we suggest you add a pair of falsies coated in oodles of mascara for some added drama. The best part about this look is that it allows you to play up your pout with any bright colour of your choice.

Shimmer eyeliner

If you want to make your eyes the focus of your entire look, then you should wear a shimmery coloured eyeliner, just like Kangana. The shimmery blue eyeliner looks absolutely stunning (you can obviously switch the colour to match your outfit) and helps take her makeup game several notches higher.

Shimmer lips

If you love experimental and edgy looks, then you absolutely need to wear glitter lips this festive season. Esha Gupta’s red shimmer lips are such a unique way to wear the shimmer makeup trend and will surely win you a lot of compliments. With such dramatic lips, remember to keep the rest of your makeup absolutely minimum with a thin eyeliner and some blush.

Shimmery blush

If you want to join the shimmer makeup bandwagon but don’t know where to start, then Manushi Chillar provides the perfect inspo. Simply upgrade your usual blush with a really pretty shimmer blush. Finish the look with a bold lipstick and minimal eye makeup and voila! Your festive makeup is ready.

Shimmer nails

If you think wearing glitter makeup is a bit too much for you, then wait, you don’t need to give up on this fad altogether. You can wear a shimmery nail polish just like Sara Ali Khan. We love how simple, understated yet absolutely stunning this looks. Besides, is any festive look complete without complementing nails? We think not!
