Holi is widely celebrated in India and worldwide as a colorful festival. This brings happiness and joy to one’s life. Then why have we made it a ritual to just Wear White Color On Holi? The reason is, Holi colors look vibrant and reflect properly on White & light colored dress.

Who said you can’t apply Makeup For Holi? Makeup is a true companion of any woman for the special event and it also helps in protecting the skin from the harmful chemicals included in the Holi colors.


Start by applying the base

Begin with a moisturizer as you need to hydrate and prepare your skin for the subsequent makeup you will apply.  Ensure that you have a seamless base in order to achieve long-lasting and flawless makeup. Prime your face and follow it up with a full coverage foundation. You can also opt to prime your face followed by the matte foundation which will help in holding the makeup for a long time.


Make the eyes stand out!

A festive makeup requires a pop of color and it can best be incorporated in your eye makeup. Use jet black, waterproof kohl to line your upper lash line and waterline. Define your eye by applying kohl to your lower as well as upper waterline but leave the inner corner of the eyes bare. You can also experiment with colors by opting for green or blue kohl. If you want to add a smoky touch to your look, use a pointed brush and gently smudge out the kohl to make it look diffused and smoky without harsh lines. Add volume to your lashes by applying mascara. This makes the eyes look open. Make sure you use water-proof products so that it will stay until the end.


Don’t forget to ‘blush’

Cheeks are always left out as we focus more on eyes and lips. Since the eyes already reflect screaming vibrancy, go for an exceptionally light blush. A cream blush would look more natural and suit the makeup. It goes without saying that occasions like these call for a photo session. The highlighter is an indispensable product to apply in times like these as it catches the light and reflects the right amount of it when a snap is clicked. It makes your skin look absolutely luminous and beautiful.


Lips ‘Matter’

Matte lipstick is currently trending and it requires prior moisturization of the lips. Slab a generous amount of lip balm before you begin your makeup and remove it before applying your lipstick. This will help your lipstick last longer and refrain your lips from drying. Chose a vibrant matte lipstick to add the extra glam to your over-all look. You do not have to go for the usual red, as they many bright shades available in the market.


One last thing, please use water resistant makeup to make sure that your makeup stays put and you don’t end up looking like a complete mess once the festivities start.
