Come 31st July each year, it is only natural (for the fans) to want to celebrate all things Harry Potter the Rowling way. And why not; this is probably the closest we muggles can get to experiencing the Hogwarts life! *sigh* While we are sure you have your costumes and merchandise in place, how do beauty buffs like you and I (who are also major Potterheads, mind you), really celebrate this day? We rock some Harry Potter inspired makeup, of course!
These makeup looks actually make up for all those years you have waited for an owl to arrive at your door and transport you straight to the sorting ceremony. Pick your jam...
Gryffindor stands for bravery, courage and determination; hence it is only fitting that their house colour be red. We love this beautiful glittery red and golden eye makeup look that is perfect to bring out the Gryffindor in you.

Loyal, trustworthy and kind are the perfect words to describe this Hogwarts house. Although the most underrated house in the series, the beautiful colour combination of yellow and black proves to be a goldmine of potential makeup looks for beauty buffs like us. We love this yellow and black smokey eye that is super easy to recreate and is oh-so-wearable!

This beautiful green and golden eye makeup look is completely bewitching. Since house Slytherin tends to be ambitious, shrewd, cunning and achievement-oriented it only makes sense to demonstrate such strong qualities with a heavy statement eye as well as lip. What we love the most about this makeup look is the subtle neon green highlighter in the inner corner as well as on the cupid’s bow.

Blue lids never go out of style and that’s the biggest plus for all you Ravenclaws out there! Since Ravenclaws’ characterise themselves as being witty, bookworms and intellectuals, a subtle blue and copper eye makeup inspired from their house crest sounds just about perfect.
