LOTD: Daytime Diwali (Festive) Makeup Look
Diwali at home is always special. Since the time I got married its been a tradition to celebrate Diwali at my in-laws place in Delhi and its one tradition that it holds a really special place in my heart. This year is no different and like always am here sitting in my in-laws' living room, sipping a cup of hot ginger tea courtesy my mum-in-law, nibbling on a slice of banana cake and typing away at my keyboard...
Diwali in Delhi is interesting in the sense that the festivities start almost 10 days prior... This essentially means decking up every morning and go about doing your business in your fineries... This gave me an idea for doing a post on a daytime festive makeup look... It will be both practical and easy to achieve.
I wanted a soft look that would scream understated glow with the perfect base and smokey yet glittery eyes. This meant using lots of browns, subtle shimmery eye shadows, adequate highlighter and a nude lip.
I used a cream eye shadow because shimmery powders look a little too shimmery. Cream eye shadows on the other hand impart an understated shimmer.
Because I didn't want the eyes to take away from the other parts of the face, I used kohl only on my tightline and skipped using a liner on my upper lash line altogether. However, I did put on some false lashes to complete the eye makeup.
I used an Orangey-Bronze blush on my cheeks and added a touch of highlighter on the bridge of my nose. I went for a nude brown liquid lipstick so as to maintain the color palette.
However, to make the look pop I wore a bright pink bindi.
