The Basics of Diwali Party Makeup

Diwali makeup is all about embracing your inner diva. Here are the fundamental elements to consider when creating the perfect party look. 

Make sure you always start with a clean, moisturised face. Use a gentle face wash that gets rid of all the oil and dirt from your skin. And follow it up with a light moisturiser that helps you to hydrate your skin from within. Once your moisturization is done, you must use primer to create a smooth base for your makeup. Your primer not only helps to blur out all the fine lines and wrinkles but it also helps in filling up the boards and making your makeup last much longer.    

Once your primer is well blended, you can then choose a foundation that matches your skin tone. Blend it well for a seamless finish. After your foundation, you can then hide blemishes with a concealer. Use a contour kit for sculpting your face elegantly. If you don't have one, then you can always use a brown lipstick for contouring.    

Once your entire makeup is complete, you can then apply setting powder to keep your makeup in place. Consider using a setting spray for extra durability.

Diwali Party Makeup Look Ideas

Now, let's delve into the most stunning Diwali party makeup looks that will leave everyone in awe. 

This Diwali pick the golden Goddess look and embrace the shimmer with golden eyeshadow and highlighter. You can finish off your amazing golden eye makeup look with winged eyeliner and bold lashes to add drama.    

Or you could go for the old classic sultry smokey eyes look. You can create an alluring look with dark, cruelty-free eyeshadows. Pair it with nude lips for balance.

What is the valley without a little bit of shimmer and glitter? Therefore, you can definitely pick a glittery glamour look. Begin with a glitter eyeshadow palette for an extra dose of sparkle. Complement it with a simple red lip.

Above all, it is always great to choose an ethnic look for this festive season. You can opt for traditional eye makeup with kohl or kajal. Add a pop of colour with a statement bindi.

Indian festivals and weddings look great and complete when you wear something red. So this Diwali, you can go and flaunt the red Goddess in you. Make red the hero of your look, from eyeshadow to lipstick. Keep the rest of your makeup subtle. 

Diwali Makeup Tips for a Lasting Glow

To make sure your party makeup look stays vibrant throughout the festivities, follow these Diwali makeup tips 

Make sure to invest in a long-lasting primer. A primer helps to create a base that locks your makeup in place. A setting spray is your best friend. A few spritzes will keep your makeup fresh all night. Carry blotting sheets to combat excess oil. A small makeup kit with essentials like lipstick for quick touch-ups is handy. You can also keep a small compact powder in your pores because compact powder is great when it comes to touching up your makeup and making it look absolutely fresh. 

If you have dry skin then you can also keep a face mist in your purse because this not only hydrates your skin and makeup instantly but it also moisturises your skin from within.

How can I make my lipstick look glossy and shimmery?

To make your lipstick look glossy and shimmery, you can begin by applying your moisture lipstick and then tap in a little bit of your shimmer eye shadow all over your lips. Let it set properly and then apply another coat of your glossy lipstick. 

How to make my makeup last long during Diwali?

The best way to make your makeup last long during Diwali is to spray your setting spray in between your makeup steps and then finish it off with one last spray all over your face and neck.

Diwali is all about sweets and snacks. How can I make my lipstick last longer during these snacking times?

When you apply your lipstick for Diwali, make sure you begin by preparing your lips well. Begin with scrubbing your lips first and then follow it up with a lip balm and leave it on for a few minutes. Wipe off the lip balm and then apply your lipstick. This will not only keep your lips well hydrated, but it will also make your lipstick last much longer. Apart from this, make sure you carry your lipstick in your purse for quick touch ups.
