1. Colour Pop Eyes

If you like your outfits to have a lot of colour, this is the look for you. We love how actress Kriti Sanon slayed the look with a flash of red and a turquoise tint. You can go all out for your fun party makeup and balance it up with a lovely undertone monotone ensemble to make a spectacular statement.

Go for straight open hair for this look and try this look with white or bold color outfits.

2. A Well-Balanced Look

When in doubt about your holiday makeup, aim for a balanced appearance; believe us, it'll be exactly what you need to turn heads. Keep your base light and go for balanced tones, just like Kajol. If you wish, you can even add a coral tint. Keep your eye makeup simple and add some colour to your face with a blush.

Go for a sleek Jooda for this look and pair it up with a Silk or Banarasi saree.

3. A Touch Of Red

A Christmas beauty look isn't complete without a splash of red, and what better way to do so than with a dramatic red lip? We adore Jacqueline Fernandez's flawless application of the bright red lips. It's time for you to master the red-lips look like an expert, just like the actress. Choose colors that complement your skin tone and complement the aesthetics of your attire.

Pair up this look with a red sheer saree and curled hair and you are all good to go.

4. Wing it

The traditional winged eyeliner design never goes out of style, and no matter what the occasion, this trend always works, making it a great choice for any makeup look. This Christmas season, channel Janhvi Kapoor and kill the winged eyeliner like never before. A dramatic touch can be added to the look by using a thick winged liner and mascara.

Go for a loose low bun for this look along with a heavy earrings. This look will be most suitable for light colored sarees lik beige etc.

5. Deepika’s Golden Look

Her eyebrows have been kept bold, and her eyes have been darkened with a dark colour pigment that blends in well with the rest of her face. Her eyes are also lined with a deep black kohl, and her lashes are precisely shaped with mascara. The overall aspect of the face leans towards a golden hue, and we adore how it all came together. Finally, she chose a natural pink tone for her lips, which works nicely with the overall appearance. This appearance can be achieved with clothing that is golden, crimson, pink, or blue.

She has opted for a sleek messy bun for this look and hair wore choker based jewellery pieces.

6. Priyanka’s Deep Red Look

Priyanka's makeup is all about dramatic eyebrows, a well-highlighted forehead, and a flawlessly pointed nose in this look. Her eyes are highlighted with gold accents and lined with black liner. The face contours have been done with excellent accuracy, and we love how the reds in her makeup pop against the goldens. Wear this makeup with any ethnic ensemble to light up the Diwali celebrations.

Go for a middle parted sleek bun for this look along with some gajra on the bun. Wear it with heavy earrings.

7. Anushka's Boho Look

Moving on, we have another flawless diva that can provide us with great inspiration when it comes to applying cosmetics to boho-style or Indo-western outfits. Anushka has a peach-tinted nude cosmetics look in the photo. Most aspects have been maintained natural, from her brows to her lips. Her lashes were also curled with a super-strong mascara and her eyes were lined with a black smoky liner. A tinge of very light orange with shimmer may be seen on the eyelids, and natural pink blush can be seen on the cheeks. As previously said, the lips are a light pink natural colour that ties the whole look together.

Go for wavy hair for this look as it will give you a really effortless and chic look.

8. Tara's Copper Look

Tara is glowing in a copper look, offering us ideas for our Diwali makeup looks (interesting makeup tips to know). The eyes were emphasised with a dab of shine across the lids, and the eyebrows were left in their original shape. A distinct copper contour is visible on her cheeks, forehead, and chin. Her lips are a neutral colour. Her forehead is also adorned with a little golden bindi, creating a stunning and eye-catching look for the holidays. So, this Diwali, go for any of these outfits to rock the event and catch everyone's attention.

Go for sleek straight middle-parted hair tucked behind the ears hairstyle for this look.
