Navratri, a vibrant nine night festival in India, is that time of the year when the lively spirit and the wish to have maximum fun is at its peak. Celebrated with zeal and enthusiasm, Navratri has tremendous festive spirit. Apart from the religious significance, this is the perfect time to look the best with all the traditional attire, accessories, hair and makeup.
Everybody loves flaunting those killer garba moves and showing off the new learnt styles. But midway through the dancing, you wouldn’t want your makeup to turn into a greasy mess, would you? With all the garba and dandiya, heavy lights and the sweating, it is highly possible for your makeup to get all sloppy.
Do not worry, we just have the right tricks for you to keep the makeup in place and also how you could glam up your look.
Priming your way through the night
A great base is the beginning of any great makeup look, whether you’re rocking a full face or just a few dabs. Makeup Primer is the base for foundation that allows it to go smoother and last longer. It is the life saver for getting your makeup in place. A good makeup primer helps in smoothing fine lines, wrinkles and pores.
Go easy on the Foundation
Foundation is a skin-coloured makeup applied to the face to create an even, uniform colour to the complexion, to cover flaws and, sometimes, to change the natural skintone. But during navratri, there is a possibility that it would get mixed with all the sweat resulting in the make-up looking all cakey. We would suggest you use compact/loose powder. It helps the makeup stay intact.
Kill ‘em with those eyes
Get those dramatic eyes with the perfect combination of mascara, eyeliner and eyeshadow. Applying eyeliner is an art in itself. But once done right, it will give your eyes the perfect look. Mascara helps in enhancing the eyelashes and eyeshadow makes the eye look even more attractive. Choosing neutral colours such as smokey eyes, bronze, copper colours would go with all the bright coloured outfits.
The Pouty Lips
Lipstick will complete your look and add a glamorous element to it. The combination of eyeshadow and lipstick will give the face a perfect look. If you choose a darker eye shadow, choose a subtle shade of lipstick and if you go light on your eye makeup, go for a bold, vibrant lip shade for a balance.
So, just dance it out girls!
Step out in the best glamorous avatar in this colourful festival of garba and dandiya. We hope these tips will help you look your best this Navratri.
Wishing you all a very Happy Navratri!
