Happy Chhoti Diwali lovelies…
AHA! So finally the nip in the air makes it the perfect Diwali weather. I am so happy. Diwali happens to be one of my favourite festivals alongwith Holi as these festivals give us an opportunity to spend quality time with friends and family…
Somehow, I always feel that the light from the earthen lamps looks more radiant and spreads more happiness than anything else… Philosophy ahan!
Thanks to all of you who have been keeping tune of our Diwali special series and giving us such wonderful comments and compliments.
Each one of you is a big ego booster especially in times when I am feeling a little low. Anyways, as promised, here is the Diwali night look to look your radiant best. Btw, Mr Chhotu camera again refused to behave well and hence, the lighting and quality is a little average. But there is some good news coming soon.
So, here’s the
All Gold and a Little Bold Diwali Night Look
Create a perfect base for the shimmery metallic makeup by first moisturizing your skin (Olay Total Effects Duo) and then, applying your favourite foundation (Loreal Nude Powder Magic Foundation).
Since you will be photographed a lot, conceal any dark circles and spots to create a flawless look (Revlon Colorstay Concealer). Now apply powder to set it all (Rimmel Stay Matte).

Head over to the eyes now. Since it’s a night look, we decided to go a little bold. Apply a shimmery brown or copper coloured eye shadow as the base shade on the 2/3 of your lids till the crease (MAC Pigment Tan).
Next, take a Golden eyeshadow and apply on the remaining area, specially the inner corner, and blend well. Apply this same colour lightly under your brow bone as well, alongwith a highlighter or a rose gold eye shadow for that metallic effect.

Now, take your favourite liquid or gel liner and apply it from the inner corner to out and create a wing. Make it a little bold and graphic by adding another wing below the first one to create a fishtail like effect (Lakme Absolute Shine Line and Inglot Gel Liner 77). Apply mascara as you like in one, two or three coats (Maybelline Hyper curl) and also, kajal on just half of your waterline (Maybelline Colossal).
Fill in your brows to complete the eyes (ELF Warm Neutrals Palette).

Give your face some more dimension by applying a bronzer on the cheeks till the forehead and some near the hairline and the jawline too (Loreal Bronzer Duo). You can also contour your face if you want. Highlight your high areas.
Go Bold for the lips too. Fill your lips with your favourite red or fuchsia lipstick (MAC Charmed I’m sure) and apply a peach/light pink gloss over it to make your pout look ooh! Tie your hair back in your favourite hairstyle and you are done.
I enjoyed doing this graphic eye liner and I would be experimenting with some more soon. Will be posting one more Diwali Look for those who like a little mysterious element for Diwali makeup.
you all a very Happy Diwali and may you all be blessed with loads of happiness
