It might sound cliché to step out and treat yourself on Women’s Day, but it does hold merit. After all, why should you wait around for the men and children in your life to plan something special for you on the day that celebrates womanhood? You should be doing it yourself and use it as yet another excuse to see all your besties (not that you actually need a reason in the first place). Might we suggest a boozy (or not!) brunch with the girls.

Y’all can dress up and take yourself out to break bread and pay homage to the fact that female friendships are an integral part of thriving in a supportive community of women. And, if you are pressed for ideas on how to glam up, we picked out some celeb-inspired makeup looks to pair with all kinds of ensembles...

 Janhvi dolled up her lovely sequins and a high ponytail with this totally adorable makeup look. Keep your face glowy and muted to catch the afternoon sun; for drama, wear coloured kohl and deepen the pigment by topping it off with a light layer of black kohl. Swipe on some lip balm to keep things fresh.

If you are the fun one in the group, you’d want your makeup to reflect that as well. Upgrade your basic makeup look with a touch of neon in the inner corner of your eyes. We love the slight red smoke around Amyra’s eyes; it looks so romantic.
