Ganesh Chaturthi for us has always been about waiting for Bappa to come home, decorating our homes with marigolds and gorging on modaks! Besides that, these 10-days of festivities also give us a reason to dress up and put our makeup skills to the test! After all, all those hours you spent watching makeup-related YouTube videos need to be put to good use, right? And, to ensure you look nothing but stunning, we’re sharing five tips on how to amp up your makeup look for at-home Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations. Excited? Let’s begin


01. Play up your eyes

Want to amp up your eye makeup but running late for puja? Well, we’ve got a simple solution for you — coloured eye pencils. Pick a coloured eye pencil that matches your outfit from the Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate - The Gelato Collection. Simply rim the upper and lower lash line, add 2-3 coats of mascara, and you’re ready to slay! The pencil is smudge-proof and waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about touch-ups while you’re celebrating.


02. Choose a bold colour for your lips

Going for a bold hue for your lips is the easiest way to add glam to even your simplest makeup looks. Our trusted companion for this is the Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color - Firestarter Red. It gives the lips an intense matte colour payoff, while the rosehip oil makes your lips soft and supple. Also, it is available in 25 fun and intense shades that you can choose from.

This unique lightweight moisturising cream comes with a hint of highlighter to give your skin a 3D glow and also works as a primer to give you a flawless base.

Now, we firmly believe that good eye makeup can break or make your look, especially around the festive season. So, to make sure you shine bright, we suggest adding shimmer to your lids with the Lakmé Absolute Spotlight Eye Shadow Palette - Stilettos. This palette comes with 12 shimmery and matte shades that are velvety smooth in texture and super easy to apply. We suggest dusting shimmery bronze or golden hue eyeshadow on your eyelids and smudging your eyeliner to give them a subtle smokey effect.


05. Add a hint of highlighter

You can jazz up your makeup this Ganesh Chaturthi by sweeping some of the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Blush Shimmer Brick on the apples of your cheeks using upward strokes. It’ll add a healthy flush of colour and a subtle glow to your skin. So just swirl the brush in the pan and sweep away — but don’t go overboard, or you’ll end up looking like a shiny clown.
