With a heavy outfit, do subtle makeup. Define your eyes with kajal and mascara. Apply a hint of blush and complete the look with a lip colour. Go for side-swept tousled hair like Kareena Kapoor.
If you have narrowed down your outfit for Diwali and Bhai Dooj, all you are left with is to decide on makeup and hairstyle. We all know perfect makeup and hair can elevate your look instantly. Add on the right jewellery and you are ready to go.
The key is that your makeup and hairdo should complement your outfit and not overpower it. Balance out your look smartly. Remember the rule - less is more. If your outfit is too heavy, then a subtle eye makeup and lips with dewy skin is the way to go. On the other hand, if the outfit is light-weight, try to upgrade your look with smokey eyes.
For hair, you can go for gajra bun or tousled side-swept hair.
If you want the typical traditional look, take cues from Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Red lips, red bindi and red sindoor- it's OTT, but if you can pull it off, why not?
If you are going with heavy jewellery, do minimal makeup. A swipe of eyeliner, dewy skin and light lip colour is the way to go. You can also wear gajra like Sonam Kapoor.
A sleek middle-parted bun is perfect with layered neckpieces. Skip earrings like Kangana Ranaut.
Smokey eyes take your look to the next level. Wear a lighter shade of lipstick and minimal jewellery.
