Tweak the no make up look with bronzer: Don’t wanna apply heavy make-up, but still wanna look gorgeous. We will tell you how to do that. Apply foundation on the well moisturized skin, then apply pressed powder or compact. Use a bronze eye shadow and tight line your eyes with black liner. You can add a line of kajal to bring some sparkle to your eyes. Apply generous coats of mascara and finish off with a blush nude lipstick.
Eyes, the point of attraction: This look is a stunning pick for those of you looking to highlight your eyes this evening. Use two tones of eye shadow (like brown and black or grey and black) and create a smokey eye. Be sure to add a little highlighting white liner in the corners of your eyes to make sure they don’t appear heavy lidded. Line your eyes and apply lots of water proof mascara. Finish off with nude lipstick and let your eyes be the centre of attention. The light of the bonfire will make your eyes look even more smokey on Lohri night!
Be sophisticated with wine lips:
That’s the colour of the season. First you need flawless skin, so don’t be stingy with the foundation, maybe go so far as to apply some bronzer so that your skin doesn’t look flushed or washed out. As the colors of the lipstick is bold and eye catching, go minimal on your eyes. Add a little white liner to open them up and layer on the mascara. Create a slight wing with your basic black liner. The next step is the deep wine lipstick and finally,a coat of gloss will not do you any harm especially on a cold winter’s night when your lips tend to get a little chapped.
Let’s be bold with orange red:
This look will never go out of fashion. Go for a red that’s inclined towards orange. Draw a thin line across your lid and extend a little outwards to add some character to your eyes. Make sure your skin is well moisturized for this look and a concealer is an absolute must especially so that the bonfire doesn’t throw any blemishes or dark circles in relief.
The Colored Liner Look: If you are not in the mood to look serious this winter, we have got something fun and pop for you. Pick a colored liner of your choice, preferably corresponding to your outfit and create a bold wing or a thick line. Apply mascara and add kajal so that your colored liner stands out. Complete this look with a bright popping lipstick, preferably picking from a range of pinks and purples.
