Step into every occasion in style with these top beauty trends for the festive season. From glam to subtle, there's a trend for every mood... Bookmark these for later!


01. Glowing glam

05. Blush-draping

One of the easiest and most loved trends of the season is all about getting that glow, and Dia Mirza's look is proof! Keep the base dewy, the eyes shimmery, the contour sharp, and the highlighter popping to ace this simple Diwali makeup look.

02. Graphic liner

05. Blush-draping

Black eyeliner is passé — take cues from Mrunal Thakur and hop onto the graphic eyeliner beauty trend for Diwali 2021. If blue doesn't go with your outfit, don't be afraid to pick out a contrasting shade — and you don't need to stick to a classic cat-eye either. From double wings to a fox finish, let your creativity run wild!

03. Subtle but striking

05. Blush-draping

The matte makeup look is back just in time for Deepavali 2021, and let us tell you — it's back with a vengeance! Turn to Yami Gautam Dhar's minimal, matte makeup look for all the inspo you need. Keep the base matte, eyelids a warm orange and the cheeks subtly bronzed, and turn the attention to your bold, bright lips for a much-needed pop of colour.

04. Vivid violet eyes

05. Blush-draping

We're just going to say it — we called this beauty trend for the festive season a while ago! Vivid violet eyes are the hottest Diwali makeup trend, and they can be pulled off with just about any outfit too. Keep the base luminous and the lips a creamy nude shade, and let your eyes do the talking with this one.

05. Blush-draping

05. Blush-draping

A closer look at Kiara Advani's luminous makeup, and you'll notice that the star has applied blush to where the contour would normally be. This is the 2021-favourite face-defining technique, blush-draping, and we absolutely love it! Define your face with blush instead of a contour, add a liquid illuminator to the high points, keep the lips a glossy nude, and go heavy on the kajal to ace the Diwali makeup look.
