01. Smudged eyeliner look

Eye makeup is taking centre stage this Diwali (thanks to face masks). As a beginner, you can try this easy smudged eyeliner look and pair it with a nude lipstick like Janhvi Kapoor.

Step 01: Start by applying primer all over your face including eyelids. The Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer hides pores and imperfections to give a flawless base.

Step 02: After completing your base makeup, take a kohl pencil like the Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal - Black and apply on your eyelids and waterline. Smudge gently using the built-in smudger at the back on the pencil.

Step 03: Apply generous coats of the Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara - Black to make your lashes appear fuller and open up your peepers.


02. Shimmery lids

What’s a festive season without a little bit of shimmer and bling? We know as a beginner these may be a little tricky to use at first, but this is the season to experiment.

Step 01: Start by applying a liquid concealer like the Lakme Absolute Mattreal Mousse Concealer to hide dark circles and create an even base.

Step 02: Instead of directly applying shimmer eyeshadow on your lids, first apply a base. An earthy or nude matte eyeshadow shade would be perfect. Pick the Brunette shade from the Lakme Absolute Spotlight Eye Shadow Palette - Smokin Glam and swipe on your lids to create a smooth base.

Step 03: Next pick the shade opulent from the Lakme Absolute Spotlight Eye Shadow Palette - Smokin Glam and dab over the lids. Do the rest of your makeup as you usually would and prepare to slay!


03. Gold eyeliner and fluttery lashes

If you’re still not confident about your eyeshadow skills and don’t wanna risk creating a mess, opt for a gold eyeliner and some mascara to nail your festive glam look.

Step 01: After finishing your base makeup, take a gold eyeliner and draw a neat and thin winged eyeliner. The Lakme Absolute Shine Line Eye Liner - Liquid Gold comes with a fine applicator brush that is easy to use.

Step 02: To add instant drama to any eye look and appear more awake, swipe on a few coats the Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara - Night Drama.

Step 03: Lastly, fill in your brows to add balance to your look. The Lakme Absolute Micro Brow Perfecter - Charcoal fine tip will give you hair-like strokes and is super easy to use.
