Diwali is almost here ! Most of you must be getting ready for the Diwali parties you'll be attending or hosting yourself ! For those of you who don't know what Diwali is - it is the festival of lights in India. All over the country people light up their homes with several oil lamps or candles , burn loads of fire crackers, make some yummy feasts, eat and pray. It is one of festivals that every body looks forward to ! Read more on Diwali here


This is a look I came up with for Diwali . The gold looks great on any skin tone especially tanned ones and pairing it with black is perfect for the Diwali night festivities ! Alternatively, you can also pair the gold with brown / burgundy / deep red / copper. Anything works !

Products Used and Description:

1. Apply primer all over the lid.
I used Pop Beauty Eye Magnet Primer
2. Apply a base layer of gold all over the lid . You can use a pencil or a cream shadow or a powder shadow.
I used Loreal HIP duo in Bustling
3. Apply a bright gold shadow over the base gold color.
I use Alima shadow in Gold Dust
4. Use black shadow on the outer V and move it into the crease. Blend upwards and outwards.
I used Milani Storm
5. Use a liquid liner along your upper lash line and a black pencil along your water line.
6. Run the black shadow over the lower lash line. Use gold over the black for a black - gold effect.
7. Apply a shimmery champagne / white gold shadow as your highlighter under the brows.
8. Use mascara / false lashes and do your brows !

Thats it !!


What are your plans for Diwali ? What will you be wearing for you party? Cant wait to hear about it all !!

Love,
Indian Girl

This would never work for me as I have blue eyes, but your's are just gorgous! My oldest daughter had dark eyes and this would have looked amazing on her!
