Diwali Makeup Trends 2023: Stay Fashion-Forward this Festival

Diwali, the festival of lights, is just around the corner, and it's the perfect time to shine bright with your makeup looks. As an Indian woman who appreciates cruelty-free and vegan beauty products, you'll be delighted to know that there are exciting Diwali makeup trends for 2023 that align with your values. In this blog, we'll explore the latest Diwali makeup looks, trends, and tips to help you create a stunning festive makeup look that will leave everyone in awe.

Glowing Skin is In

The key to any beautiful makeup look is a flawless base, and this Diwali, it's all about achieving that radiant, dewy glow. Start with a hydrating primer to create a smooth canvas for your makeup. Use a lightweight, halal foundation that matches your skin tone perfectly. Opt for foundations with nourishing ingredients that provide long-lasting hydration. Mix a drop of liquid highlighter with your foundation for an instant luminous effect.

Or you could try our awesome new Strobe to Glow Illuminating Primer + Moisturiser which will not only give you a beautiful glow from within but it will also hydrate your skin. 

Once your makeup is complete, don't forget to set it with a setting powder or a loose powder and finish it off with a makeup setting spray.

If you plan to go around partying or visiting relatives, then make sure you apply your setting spray once your base makeup is complete and once your complete makeup is done. This trick will make your makeup last much longer and give you a beautiful and flawless finish.

Diwali Eye Makeup Extravaganza

The eyes are the windows to the soul, and Diwali gives you the perfect excuse to play with vibrant colours and bold eye makeup.

Golden Goddess Eyes

This Diwali, go for gold! Create a stunning festive makeup look by applying shimmery gold eyeshadow on your eyelids. Pair it with a deep brown or black eyeliner for a dramatic effect. Finish with voluminous, cruelty-free mascara for luscious lashes that flutter like a dream.

Sparkling Smokey Eyes

Smokey eyes are timeless, but this Diwali, give them a modern twist. Use cruelty-free eyeshadows in shades of charcoal, pinks, or navy blue to create a sultry smokey eye. Don't forget to blend well for that seamless transition between colours. Add a touch of glitter eyeshadow to the centre of your eyelids for extra sparkle.

Lip and Cheek Stains for All-Day Glam

For a long-lasting and natural flush of colour, lip and cheek stains are your go-to products this Diwali. These versatile, vegan-friendly products come in a variety of shades, ensuring there's one to match your festive outfit. Apply the stain to your lips and cheeks, then blend quickly for a radiant flush that lasts all day.

Long-Lasting Lipstick Magic

Diwali festivities involve a lot of eating and socialising, so you need a lipstick that can keep up. Opt for a cruelty-free, long-lasting lipstick in a bold shade that compliments your outfit. Matte lipsticks are not only trendy but also tend to stay in place for hours. 

A really cool Diwali makeup tip to make your lipstick last longer is to apply your lipstick and let it set for a few seconds and then apply a coat of your loose powder or your compact powder. Let the powder set and then apply another coat of the same shade of lipstick. This will not only make your lipstick completely matte and waterproof, but it will also make it last much longer than your regular matte lipstick. 

Diwali Makeup Tips for a Flawless Look

Invest in a makeup combo that includes cruelty-free products for the complete Diwali makeup experience. These sets often come with eyeshadows, lipsticks, and blushes, all coordinated to create a harmonious look.

Hydrated skin is the key to successful makeup application. Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to Diwali to ensure your skin is plump and ready for makeup. You can also include fresh juices and lots of fresh fruits to your diet because the festival brings in a lot of junk food and sweets which hamper your skin's health. So eating healthy before the festival arrives is always a good option to stay well hydrated and keep your skin healthy.

Before the big day, practise your Diwali makeup look a few times to ensure you're comfortable with the techniques and colours you've chosen. This will save you time and stress on the day of the festival.

Diwali 2023 is your chance to shine with cruelty-free and vegan makeup products that align with your values. From glowing skin to bold eye makeup and long-lasting transfer proof lipstick, there are plenty of Diwali makeup trends to choose from. Don't forget to incorporate lip and cheek stains for a natural flush of colour that lasts all day.

By following these Diwali makeup tips and trends, you'll be fashion-forward this festival season and radiate confidence and beauty. Embrace the cruelty-free and vegan beauty options available, and let your makeup reflect your compassion for animals and your love for the planet. Celebrate Diwali in style, and light up the room with your stunning Diwali makeup look!
