5 celeb-approved glitter eye makeup looks that will turn you into an absolute smoke show this Diwali

Diwali 2020 is going to be an intimate affair for many. And while you will not be bursting any firecrackers this year (a welcome change), you can make up for it by turning into a patakha yourself. The trick is to add as much glitz and shimmer into your ensemble as possible… from the stunning lehenga to your makeup look for the festivities, you are spoilt for options here. We already know you have the wardrobe department covered, so let us provide you with some inpo for the makeup. And how do you make your makeup look lit for a festive evening? Glittery eyes of course! Here are some celeb-approved glittery eye makeup looks you can try this Diwali…


1. Stack and line

This stunning eye makeup look on Disha Patani has been done with a pigmented, glitter liner, a white-out shimmery crease and a hint of green glitter in the inner corner of the eye. As a finishing touch, a dab of highlighter under the brow bone makes the eye look pop!

2. Lit to the max

As kids, the ones who had the guts to let those silver, crackling phooljhadi burn out were considered elite! If you belong to that crowd, maybe pay homage to that with an ultra-glam, high-intensity silver shadow moment. For Kriti Kharbanda, filling her lids with the concentrated formula and softening the outer corners with a touch of blush was enough to turn the ensemble into glitter-ball glam. We love it!

3. One for the minimalists

Wanna wear glitter, but your love for minimal makeup always comes in the way? This gorgeous look from Hansika Motwani will help bridge that gap. Apply a neutral eyeshadow to your lids and dab some shimmer over it. Line your eyes with brown eyeliner and smudge it out lightly. Add fluttery lashes to level up your look! Finish off with a matte nude lipstick and well-defined brows.

4. Pretty in pink

Working with pink glitter has to be the easiest way to do shimmery eyes because if you mess up, it still looks chic. This eye look on Sonam Kapoor Ahuja has been created by blending pink and gold glitter, stacked with a brown shadow that’s taken all the way up to the brows and gold highlighter under the eyebrow. We love how the pink has been brought down to the lower lash line — it’s such a pretty look!

5. Gold dust

Bebo very rarely budges from her nude shadow palettes but we are glad she did for this sequinned ensemble. Pairing the silver stunner with golden glitter lids that have been lightly smoked in the outer and inner corner, she has absolutely nailed this look. Make sure to pack the glittery shadow in the middle of your eyelid to make your eyes look bigger and brighter.
