Stunning Eye Makeup Looks You Can Steal From The Stars To Look Bomb This Diwali, Even With Face Masks On!

By  | 

This year’s Diwali is going to be different in so many ways. No, people are not suddenly going to grow a conscience and stop bursting crackers. We wish! However, there’ll be less hugging and more namaste, and everyone would have their face masks on (hopefully). I know, this is not how we hoped for the festival to unfold this year, mainly because we were told by the ‘experts’ that coronavirus would have perished by now, but anyway. The good thing is that we’d be celebrating with our families, although with smaller get-togethers and sanitizers and face masks. Which reminds me, have you zeroed down on your festive eye makeup look?

Since face masks cover half of our face, it leaves just the eyes as a workable canvas to channel all our festive creativity. It does save you the effort of contouring your jawline and getting the perfect lipstick shade so it’s not all that bad. Talking about eye makeup, there are multiple ways for you to get creative with your lids and lashes. And, we have plenty inspiration to get your eye makeup game on point.

We dug out some very stunning and different eye makeup looks that the stars rocked so you could steal them for your Diwali look. Whether you want some playful eye makeup to go with your quirky face mask or keep things simple and sophisticated with just a stroke of kajal on the rims of your eyes, here are five festive eye makeup looks for everyone.

Pearl accents

If you are looking to do something truly experimental and OTT with your eyes, here is a pretty eye makeup trend from the beginning of the year that you could work. Pearl accents became huge but never saw the light of day in the true sense because, pandemic. Pros like Sonam Kapoor managed to sport the look stat and you can copy this look for Diwali. All you need to do is create a winged eyeliner and at the end of the flick, paste a drop of pearl using your lash glue. This will look incredibly gorgeous if you are wearing something white.

Glossy lids

Speaking of 2020’s eye makeup trends, it was all about the gloss and still is. A very interesting way to make those eyes pop over your face mask is to smear some light-reflecting, beautiful gloss on the lids. You could go for a clear glossy look if you want something minimal or mix an eyeshadow shade of your choice with a clear gloss and pack it on your lids for a statement look. Plus, you don’t even have to worry about blending and all that jazz. Finish the look with oodles of mascara and liner and you’re done.

An absolute classic, kohl-rimmed eyes look so chic and perfect to team up with your ultra glamourous festive ensemble. Plus, this look defines your eyes so beautifully without putting in much effort. Once you have your base colour blended on your lids, line your eyes with a pencil or gel liner. Smudge the product over the lower lid using an angled brush for effortlessly dramatic look. Don’t forget to wear mascara for bomb lashes.

If you are a makeup noob, this effortlessly striking look can save the day. This is an easy-peasy makeup look that can amp up your festive look with a simplistic stroke of colour on the rims of your eyes. Here’s how you do it. Pick an eyeliner in a vibrant colour, preferably the one in contrasting to the colour of your outfit and wear it on your lower lash line. Skip on the rest of the eye products. Simply line your eyes and wear mascara. Even if you are going for an understated outfit this Diwali, this would totally take your festive look a notch higher.

Brown Smokey eye

Mod black smokey eye too basic for you? We get it. You can spice up the boring smokey eye by playing up the look in deep brown. That’s how the celebs are wearing it this year. Just like black, brown also goes pretty well with every outfit and since it is a bit toned down than the dramatic black, it gives you the best of both worlds. Basically, whether you are a makeup minimalist or a maximalist, this would be perfect for you. Apply deep brown colour on your eye lids and line your lash line with the same colour. Blend well until you get a smudgy, messy look. Line your eyes with a black line if you want and finish the look with couple coats of mascara. And, you’re set.
