You’d agree when we say that the excitement is almost palpable during Durga Puja as Bengalis prepare for the festivities in full gusto. While the festival involves offering prayers to the deity, Durga Puja for many also means gorging on delicacies and sweets. Since the festivities are all about pandal hopping with friends and family, you’ve got to show up in all your finery. While you can opt for a traditional Bengali sari or an anarkali, you also need to ensure that your makeup look finishes out the Durga Puja look perfectly.
To help you achieve the right makeup tips for Durga Puja, BB got Krystle D’Souza, the face of Pond’s to give you a tutorial on how to get the perfect makeup look on Durga Puja using the Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Cream. The September heat can be rather merciless and the humidity is sure to take a toll on your skin. This is when the Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Cream helps because it’s just the right kinda fuss-free and lightweight base your skin needs. So make sure you rely on this while applying makeup all through the festive season.
Select your hero product
Your hero product for this Durga Puja look needs to be the Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Cream. Why? Along with protecting your skin from the sun by giving you an SPF 30 PA++ (trust us, you need this while pandal hopping), this cream will also conceal your spots and moisturise your skin thoroughly. Can’t get better than that, can it? So just squeeze a drop on your hands and apply it evenly with your fingers on your face and neck.
Line your eyes
Use an intense black eyeliner to draw a winged liner because if you really want those stunning Bong eyes, you’ve got to make your eyes look bigger and attractive. We suggest using the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Artist Eye Liner, Black that will help you get the perfect cat eye makeup.
Amp up your lashes
To complete the bold eye makeup look for Durga Puja, go with a mascara that adds volume to your lashes. We think you should get your hands on the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara for this purpose. Don’t forget to add that red bindi for added drama ‘coz you know, it’s all in the details when it comes to completing a Durga Puja makeuplook.
Finish off with lipstick
In this Durga Puja look, let your eyes do the talking and hence, opt for a nude-ish lip colour. We suggest using the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color in Buttery Caramel on your lips.
