Lucky for you, we’ve compiled a list of simple yet classic makeup looks along with steps for you to ace at Raksha Bandhan this year. Well, prep yourself to take a screenshot.
Nude For The Win
Subtle, nude has always been every girl's go-to makeup look, whether bronzed cheeks with a lehenga or a nude lip with an Anarkali suit. It is classic and simple which goes even with your heavy Indian outfits. The nude makeup look is one of the most in-demand looks, so glide on your favourite nude eyeshadow palette and lip colour to complete your Rakhi look. If you can't wait to try this look on yourself, read along & let’s steal the thunder!
Steps To Create Nude For The Win Look!
Step 1: After cleansing your face, prep it with Ecostay Insta Smooth Mattifying Perfecting Primer. Dot it all over your face to set the base for makeup and that goddess-worthy base.
Step 2: Mix a little moisturiser into your Lotus Make-Up Proedit Silk Touch Perfecting Foundation- Cashew. Apply it on your face for that dewy finish so your makeup doesn’t look cakey.
Step 3: Time to conceal your weak spots! Go over areas like lines, spots, pimples, and pigmentation and conceal them using Lotus Herbals Ecostay Insta Hide Crème Concealer - Nude Beige.
P.S. you can use your fingers to blend the formula into the under-eye area.
Step 4: Groom your brows with Ecostay Perfect Brow Definer BD-2 Natural Noir and fill in any void.
Step 5: For eyes that speak, add nude colour to your eyelids for a natural look using Ecostay Velvet Eye Shadow - Autumn Feel. And line them with Ecostay Gel Eye Definer following the eye shape and finish off the look with two coats of Proedit HD Mascara.
Step 6: Pucker up your lips with a swipe of Proedit Lip Plumper + Gloss - Sun Kissed Beige for that instant glossy effect.
Smoke It Out !
There’s nothing that makes a bold statement quite like a smokey eye! Admit it, you’ve wanted to try smokey eye makeup with a simple suit for a while but haven’t had the idea where to begin. This festive season gets ready to put yourself there with that smokey dokey eye look and let their relatives rave about it. From a smokey eye look with smudged-rimmed eyes and pinkish lip colour it would just be the perfect idea for Raksha Bandhan.
Steps To Create Smoke It Out Look!
Step 1: After cleansing your face, prep the eye area and face with Ecostay Insta Smooth Mattifying Perfecting Primer. Set the base for makeup as it will give your makeup something to grip onto.
Step 2: For the eyes, start with a taupe shade using Ecostay Velvet Eye Shadow - Orchid Freshness in the crease and built it into a cool-toned black and brown as you go with Ecostay Velvet Eye Shadow - Moon Night.
P.S. blending is the key so make it look seamless
Step 3: Tightline your lower and upper lashline and smudge out to make it look meshed. Put on two coats of Maxlash Botanical Mascara. Time to fill your brows in Ecostay Perfect Brow Definer BD-2 Natural Noir and set them in place.
Step 4: Add Proedit Silk Touch Blush Highlighter Duo - Paradise Petal to the apples of your cheeks and cheekbones.
Step 5: Use pinkish-nude lipstick like Proedit Silk Touch Gel Lip Color - Peach Paris to finish your makeup look!
Colour Me Up !
Are you feeling feisty this festive season? Let’s try a fresh and bright eye makeup look at this Raksha Bandhan. Add some pop colour to your eyelids with a flush colour to your cheeks, trust us you will slay the look!
Step 1: Prep your face and eye area using Proedit Silk Touch Luminizing Primer and let it get soaked into your skin to cover all the pores and acne scars.
Step 2: Start your eye makeup with basic shades and leave the centre bare for lightly blending in the two colours. Add a nude transition shade from Ecostay Velvet Eye Shadow - Autumn Feel to the crease for that smooth eye look.
Lotus makeup tip: Use matte makeup as it stays longer and doesn’t give out an effect of oily eyelids.
Step 3: Use Ecostay Longlasting Gel Eye Definer - Mega Black to add more definition and shape to your eyes and finish your look by using Maxlash Botanical Mascara to add volume and length to your lashes.
Step 4: Time to add some base to your makeup using Proedit Silk Touch Glow Strobe Cream SC1 Gold and Lotus Herbals Ecostay Insta Hide Crème Concealer - Nude Beige to contour your cheekbones and jawline.
Step 4: Put on Proedit Silk Touch Blush Highlighter Duo - Fiery Fusion to your cheeks and bit on your nose to give the fresh look. Also, lightly dust the highlighter to the high points of your face.
Step 5: Finally, dab on Ecostay Matte Lip Lacquer - Soft Pink and boom, you slay girl!
