Ganesh Chaturthi is one of India’s most celebrated festivals and a good excuse to splurge on some makeup products for that coveted look. Today, we’ll be drawing inspiration from Bollywood celebrities to give you five stunning makeup ideas you can sport this festive season!
Deepika’s Kohl Eyes
The focus of this look is your dramatic eyes. Start with a clean, primed eyelid and go in with a light brown eyeshadow. Layer it with some shimmery brown eyeshadow and extend it to your browline. Draw a line with some waterproof kohl and smudge it with your brush to replicate the Jawan actor’s smoky, kohl look. Complete the look with voluminous mascara and nude lips.
Alia’s Fresh, Clean Glow
Alia Bhatt has been the centre of most trends for the past few months, and not without reason. The Gangubai star likes to keep her makeup minimal and natural, with a light base, styled eyebrows, and a swatch of nude lipstick.
For this look, all you need to do is shape your eyebrows and fill them in. Add a dab of shimmery eyeshadow that matches the colour of your outfit. Finish with a nude lipstick and a small, black or red bindi!
Madhuri’s Red Lip
Sometimes the festive season is all about a red lip look, and that’s okay. The quintessential combination of classic Bollywood glam with a fresh, contemporary vibe, pair this look with a backless lehenga or a white kurta.
Start with exfoliated lips and apply a hydrating balm. Dab a light foundation on your lips for a neutral base. Choose a matching red lip liner, then outline your lips. Swipe on a classic red lipstick and finish with a hint of gloss at the centre. Add some fake lashes, and a rosy blush and you’re done.
Janhvi’s Old School Coral Flush
If you’ve been tracking Bollywood’s newbies, you’ve surely spotted Janhvi Kapoor rocking her looks, right? Among the many, her coral-flushed traditional vibe is something you can easily use for makeup inspo this Ganesh Chaturthi.
Start with a moisturised, primed face and apply a lightweight foundation for an even base. For her glow, use a coral-toned blush on your cheekbones and extend it upwards. Opt for a soft gold or light brown eyeshadow and go in with a light line of kajal on your lower lash. End with some strobe cream or a liquid highlighter. For your lips, try to use the same shade of coral as your blush and you’re done!
Keep It Glossy With Kriti
Kriti Sanon’s glossy lip game is on point and oh-so-glamm. It’s that perfect blend of casual cool with a hint of drama, so if you’re itching to get that Kriti-inspired shine, look no further.
Keep your face and eye makeup pretty basic: primer, light foundation, mascara, and a hint of kajal. Leave out the blush. For your lips, first swipe on a moisturising lip balm. Use a nude or soft-pink lipstick as your base and top it off with a high-shine clear gloss. You can use the same gloss on your eyelids and high points for a glowy touch.
So whether you’re vibing with Madhuri’s classic red lip or Janhvi’s coral touch, there’s a celeb look in this list just waiting to be rocked!
