Diana Penty took Bollywood by storm with her debut in ‘Cocktail’ eight years ago. The model-turned-actress has been impressing with her acting chops over the years, but it’s her on-point hair and makeup looks that we can’t get enough of. One look at her Instagram account and you will find several trendy and refreshing beauty looks to recreate.

On her 35th birthday today, we decided to list five beauty looks from the actress that are perfect for the festive season.


1. Goddess glow

Festive season is one time of the year when you can dab on a little extra highlighter and look festive ready instantly. Having said that, don't go overboard; take inspiration from Diana and apply it on areas where the light hits your face (chin, forehead, cupid’s bow, brow bone and apples’ of the cheek) and keep the rest of your makeup toned down.


2. Messy waves for the win

Sure, you can always opt for braids and buns, but long, messy waves and festive outfits are a match made in heaven. Diana has gorgeous, long hair that she prefers letting loose on many occasions. If you don’t have great makeup skills, go for a neutral look and let your hair take centre stage.


3. Glittery lids

The easiest way to do festive makeup is by dabbing some shimmer or glitter eyeshadow on your lids. Diana knows how to accentuate her features well. She keeps the rest of her makeup simple and chooses to highlight one feature at a time. Take inspiration from the actress and let your eyes do the talking.


4. Power of red

Diana loves her nude lipsticks, but she also knows the power of a stunning red lipstick. Two swipes of red lipstick and you will look all decked up instantly. Stock up on a few shades of red lipstick this festive and wedding season to completely transform your look in minutes.


5. Braided bun

Another easy yet trendy way to style your hair this festive season is by creating a gorgeous braided bun like Diana’s. Simply create two Dutch braids on each side of the head and take them back with the rest of your hair to tie a loose, low bun.
