For Naraka Chaturdashi aka choti Diwali, take some makeup inspiration from Sara and don’t shy away from bold eye makeup. Even out your eyelids with some concealer and then sweep some shimmery blue eyeshadow across your lids. Smudge the eyeshadow along your waterline as well, before adding 2-3 coats of mascara. Keep your makeup otherwise light to make your eyes pop and you’re ready to roll!

For the big day, don’t hold back and flaunt your makeup skills by taking a leaf out of Janhvi Kapoor’s style book. Contour your face to make your cheekbones appear chiseled and add even strokes of blush to them. For your eyes, go for the classy cat eyes and bring together the whole look with nude peach lip colour.

While gearing up for the Govardhan puja, take some makeup lessons from the queen bee herself! We’re loving the mint inner corner eye makeup by Katrina. If you’re replicating this look for the puja, make sure to curl your lashes to perfection like her and sweep some blush along your cheekbones to add some colour to your face.
