Trying to go for a new look every time you step out to celebrate can be quite a task. This festive season, how about taking a cue from the ladies who light up the big screen. From bold berry lips offset with big romantic waves to a classic pair of cat-eyes complimented with winter-pastels — here are beauty cues, courtesy these Bollywood glamerinas. From Malaika Arora Khan who looks polished-perfect every time she steps out, to the more experimental Deepika Padukone who looks effortlessly chic in a host of makeup looks — pick your beauty twin to commemorate the festivities. Apart from the red carpet, we also have inspo from these divas’ Insta-perfect selfies. So, what’s your favourite look, ladies?
The Braid Band
How party-perfect is this look? Give it up to Sonakshi Sinha who provides an easy-to-whip-up beauty look for Diwali or any of your numerous festive get-togethers. If you don’t like to go product-heavy when it comes to makeup, here’s your cue. A perfectly drawn-out eyeliner is the highlight, accompanied by a braided band that wraps itself behind the ears.
She is blessed with cheekbones that could cut glass, and Nargis Fakhri knows how to highlight them like a pro. For your late night cards party, be inspired by this look and take a YouTube lesson in contouring to perfection. Add to the mix a pair of winged eyeliner and a bright purple lip to compete your look.
The subtle saviour
Not in the mood to brandish your beauty tools? Fret not, there’s Kangana Ranaut to the rescue. A hint of calming, oceanic blue to cover the eyes and glossy nude lips to finish off — that’s all you need for your Diwali shopping and gifting rounds. And, if you are blessed with a head full of curls like Kangy, even better!
Flirty and fun
When we spotted this picture on Jacqueline Fernandez’s Instagram account, we fell in love with it instantly. What’s not to like in this super easy look that you can replicate this Diwali. The cat-eyes are just the right amount of pointy and the lips, just the right amount of pink to make your festive look pretty much perfect.
Leave it to Sonam Kapoor to go from a Paris fashion front row to a film promotion, switching her look from fierce to dainty. We love this picture that she shared on her Insta profile that highlights her structured side-wave, offset with a nude pink lip and heavy-set eyes. Perfect for a festive gathering with friends.
The focus shifts from eyeliners to curled faux lashes, as a liquid matte pop of pink on the lips completes Priyanka Chopra’s look. Add luscious cocoa waves to the mix, and you have a look that is a winner. Be PeeCee-inspired and go for a big pop of colour for your signature lip as you celebrate Diwali with friends and family.
Fierce, not in your face
This filmy beauty has managed to carve a style standing of her own and here’s a look that can perk up your celebrations with a hint of edge. The cornrow-braid mane mix has the perfect accomplice — a rustic red for the lips that offsets the fierce hairdo elegantly and just a single swipe of kohl. Replicate the look for a cards party to up your beauty stakes.
Peaches and cream
How pretty is Alia Bhatt as she plays with hues of pink for a look that is perfect for your Diwali eve. If you are doing golds and ivories for ethnic and traditional wear, for your beauty look, opt for an easy-swept bun, a Barbie pink signature lip and a hint of blush without sharp contouring. Soft and all-aglow is your Alia beauty talisman.
With always on-trend Victorian-inspired necklines, Mandarin collars and high-necks, you need a beauty look that is laced with vintage glamour. Here is Deepika Padukone acing her look with makeup that highlights two things — her eyes, and her lips. A thick layer of glossy-black eyeliner with defined wings and pastel pink lip colour will complete your look.
If you’re spending your days doing your pre-Diwali gifting rounds, know how to carry off beauty that won’t let you strike out under the sun. Malaika Arora Khan pulls off day makeup perfectly, thanks to strobing and smart highlighting. Go glossy for not only your lips, but your eyelids too with shades of peach welcoming the balmy days of winter.
