With Diwali just a few days away, we assume your preparations to look your glamorous best are on in full swing. And no matter how amazing your outfit, the right makeup look can take your look several notches higher.

But if you haven’t found THE makeup look to wear this Diwali, you’re in luck. The stunning Mrunal Thakur recently dropped an amazing shimmery golden eye makeup look that managed to win our hearts. Paired with goddess-like glowing skin, this makeup look will definitely complement your festive outfits.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you master this look…


1. Face

Step 01: Start with massaging a generous amount of the Pond’s Light Moisturiser to hydrate your skin. Give the moisturiser a few minutes to sink in before applying your base makeup.

Step 02: Next, take a coin-sized amount of the Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer and apply it all over your face. This will create a smooth canvas for your makeup to glide on.

Step 03: Take a dewy finish foundation such as the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil-in-Serum Foundation and blend it in using a makeup sponge. Start with applying a thin layer and then build on it if you require more coverage. T

Step 04: Next, apply a tiny amount of the Lakme Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer and apply it in areas that need extra coverage such as your under-eye area, on blemishes, acne and dark spots.

Step 05: Add some colour to your face by sweeping the Lakme Absolute Illuminating Blush Shimmer Brick on the apples of your cheeks using a large fluffy brush.

Step 06: For that goddess-like glow, apply the Lakme Absolute Highlighter – Moon-Lit to the high points of your face. This includes the bridge of your nose, cheekbones, forehead, chin and cupid’s bow — basically, areas where the light would hit your face naturally.


2. Eyes and lips

Step 01: Mrunal’s eye makeup is the highlight of this look. To recreate it, start with applying the shimmery golden shade from the Lakme Absolute Spotlight Eye Shadow Palette - Smokin Glam all over your eyelid. Blend it properly to smoothen out the edges.

Step 02: Take the Lakme Eyeconic Kajal – Brown and apply it starting from the middle of your lid and extend it outwards to create a small wing. Smudge the liner out for a soft smokey look.

Step 03: To open up your eyes, curl your lashes and then apply at least two coats of the Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Volumizing Mascara for a dramatic effect.

Step 04: Brush up your brows with a spoolie and fill in the gaps using the Lakme Absolute Micro Brow Perfecter. This will give you instantly bold and defined brows.

Step 05: For the lips, apply a nude lip pencil all over your lips to eliminate discolouration (if any) and make your lip colour last longer. Then, take the Lakme Absolute Plump And Shine Lip Gloss - Beige Shine and apply it all over your lips to amp up your pout. And voila, your uber-chic festive makeup look is ready to be flaunted. Pair this look with loose curls like Mrunal, and you’re all set to slay this festive season.
