    Bhai Dooj is a festivity that strengthens the bond between siblings and is celebrated with immense enthusiasm and love. It is the day when all sisters want to look their best and enjoy the festivity with some amazing selfies and photos with their brothers. 

    Since it is a day event, it becomes a little tricky to do the right makeup so that one does not look too blingy and at the same time is able to add uniqueness to one’s Diwali look. The right choice of eye palettes and the right amount of makeup is the key to having an amazing Bhai Dooj look.

    The celebrations might be closed knit, but the enthusiasm to get dressed and do makeup never goes anywhere for the sisters! Bhai Dooj calls out for a more Indian look and the makeup too needs to be in sync! To know how to get the perfect look, have a look at the tips given below! 



    Start the look with well-prepped skin. Use a cleanser and toner followed by a moisturiser. Once the moisturiser seeps into the skin, use a primer on your face to get a flawless base to begin your makeup!

    No Layering 

    The humid weather can prove to be a challenge, thus it's best to avoid layering your face with heavy concealers and foundations and rather go for sheer coverage.

    To keep the look balanced and easy to carry, it's best to dramatize either the eyes or lips. For instance, you can either go all out with your eyes by carrying a beautiful black smokey eye with a neutral lip colour or carry a bright pink/ orange lip colour and very minimal eyes with loads of mascara.
