Here are 3 minimal festive looks that are easy-to-do, yet look like a million bucks. Check them out...

Before you begin, make sure you prep your face with a moisturiser and primer to get that smooth, long-lasting base. For an illuminating, lit-from-within complexion, you can use the Lakmé Absolute Undercover Gel Primer, which is enriched with vitamin E. For skin that is blemish prone and needs some kind of extra coverage, use the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Primer to soften the look of imperfections on your skin. For the rest, read to know more...

Brightly coloured eyeliners are oh-so-big this year! We do believe that this runway-approved trend can be translated to your festive wear as well. Just pick the dominant colour in your outfit and create a sleek wingtip. Light contouring and a creamy nude lippie will help tie the whole look together.

Whoever said that red needs to be saved for the bride, needs to get their facts checked. This red lehenga paired with a fiery, crimson lip is how you do a bold lip and here are the deets: Lightly sweep on a matte pigment on the lids and line with a kohl pencil. Apply highlighter on your cheekbones and browbones, put on some falsies and a dainty red bindi — and you’re all set to slay!

Sheer, shimmery products are an absolute must in your festive makeup collection and this look is the perfect example of how to wear them. Cover your entire eyelid with a beautiful shimmery shade that is easy to blend. In this case, the champagne hued eye makeup has been slightly updated with a dab of highlighter in the inner corner of the eye. To finish the look, opt for an illuminating complexion with blushed cheeks, a sharp extended wing tip liner, pigmented bold lips and of course, a bindi!

BB picks: Lakmé Absolute Spotlight Eyeshadow Palette - Sundowner
