The festive season is officially here! With Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations on in full swing, followed by Navratri, followed by Durga Puja, followed by (everyone’s favourite) Diwali... phew! There’s no end to it, until December. But we’re not complaining!
Apart from bingeing on mithai *drooling over modaks and kajukatlis as I write this*, there is more to festivals than just satiating your sweet tooth (a beauty-obsessed girl can tell!). It’s not just the outfit that makes your look either. Complementing it with the perfect hair and makeup is what puts your entire festive look together.
So, if you’re looking for chic ideas to look as glamorous as our B-town beauties this festive season, then you’re in for a treat. We’ve curated 5 stunning celebrity-inspired looks... that can kill!
If you’re team minimalist, then here’s Katrina Kaif giving all the right kind of beauty inspo to bring out the diva in you without going all OTT. Once you’ve set the base, follow it up with a soft pink blush to add a pop of colour to your cheeks. Create a soft smokey look for your eyes and finish off with generous coats of mascara. Lastly, use a pink gloss to put your look together.

Colour me blue
Janhvi Kapoor shows you how to amp up your eye makeup with a single product. After setting your base with a dewy finish, give your cheeks a naturally flushed look. With a deep blue eyeliner, line your eyes close to your upper lash line and use kajal to rim the waterline. Smudge the kajal for added effect and finish off with a soft red pout.

Kudos to Sonam Kapoor Ahuja for pulling off brown smoked-out eyeshadow with such aplomb. Start by acing your base makeup and follow it up with some blush. Next, take brown eyeshadow and apply it on your upper and lower lids. Then, take a brown eyeliner to line your eyes and finish off with mascara. Since you’ve played up the eyes, keep your lips toned down with a gloss.
Classic cat eye
One can never go wrong with a classic cat eye. Actress Esha Gupta wears cat eyeliner to complement her ethnic attire and slays it! Once you’ve set your foundation in, add some blush onto your cheekbones. Blend well so that it doesn’t pop too much. Next, create a thick cat eye and define your look with mascara. Brush and fill in your brows. And lastly, add a soft mauve lipstick to finish your look.

Calling out to coral lovers
Karisma Kapoor, for once, ditches her beloved pink lipstick for a coral shade and gives us major beauty goals. If you’re a lipstick lover, then we suggest you keep the rest of your face makeup simple—with just foundation and contouring—and add a bright coral lipstick to finish off your festive look, oozing glamour.
