Soft Eyes

Minimal eye makeup is one of the hottest trends today. If you follow Mira Kapoor's makeup looks, you know it is her go-to look most days. This one is really easy to recreate. 

Things You Will Need - 

  • Kajal 
  • Nude Eyeshadow 
  • Mascara 
  • Concealer
Steps - 
  1. Take some concealer on your finger and dab it all over your eyelids and under your eyes. 
  2. Using an eyeshadow brush, apply any nude or light shade eyeshadow of your choice on your eyelid. 
  3. Next take a kajal pencil and use it along your eyelash line. Go a little thick. 
  4. Using a fluffy eyeshadow brush, smudge it a little to get that smooth finish. 
  5. Apply kajal once again over the smudged line. 
  6. Round off with lots of mascara on the upper and lower lash line. 
  7. Finish off with a bold or a minimal lipstick as per your preference. 

Smokey Eyes

Another easy to do eye makeup look which works well with almost all traditional outfits. Again, you need a few makeup products to achieve this festive look. 

Things You Will Need - 

Steps - 

  1. Prep your eyelids with concealer or primer. This is a heavy look so it is a better idea to use these products if you want the eye makeup to last for longer. 
  2. From your eyeshadow palette, use the lightest shade on the inner corner and darkest on the outer corner. 
  3. In the center, pick shades between light and dark. Once done, use a thick, fluffy brush and start blending from the outside. This eye makeup hack is quite trending these days. If you want, you can also use a minimum number of eyeshadow shades depending on your outfit colour. 
  4. Use an eyeliner on the upper eyelids and apply across the lash line. 
  5. Apply kajal on the lower lash line. 
  6. Pick a bright colour from the eye shadow palette and using an eyeshadow brush, apply it on the lower lash line along the kajal. 
  7. Use the white eye pencil on your lower lash line. This will make your eyes look bigger. 
  8. Complete with lots of mascara.

Retro Eyes

If you have a calling for all things retro, this is the eye makeup you should be doing this Diwali. This classic look has been in trend for decades for a reason. 

The best part about going retro is that you can choose between both heavy and light eyes with this look. 

The classic retro look consists of a thick winged eyeliner. You can go with just the liner or do it over a heavy shimmer eye shadow for a bolder look.

Things You Will Need  - 

  • Concealer
  • Liquid eyeliner
  • Eyeshadow Palette 
  • Mascara 
Steps - 
  1. Begin with creating a base for your eyeshadow. You can use a cream based nude shade or a concealer. 
  2. Follow with the lighter shade according to your outfit. Apply it all over your eyelids. 
  3. Pick a contrasting, darker shade and start applying it from the outer corner of your eyes using a fluffy eyeshadow brush. 
  4. Next, choose a glitter shade and dab it on the center of your eyelid. 
  5. Using a liquid eyeliner draw a thick, wing liner. Begin from the inner corner of your eyes, draw a line close to your lash line. Go thicker and lift it once you reach the outer corner to create a wing. You might not get it perfect in one go and that's okay. Use a q-tip to clean and do it again. 

Shilpa Shetty's retro look was rounded off with a natural blush and a bold ruby lipstick.
