But, if you’re looking for some makeup and hair inspiration to amp up your Diwali look, we’ve got you covered.
This Diwali, take cues from your favourite Bollywood beauties. From Katrina Kaif’s bright blue lids to Vidya Balan’s dark wine lips, check out these celeb-approved looks before you pick up your make up brushes.
Sara Ali Khan’s glossy lips and textured waves
In this photo, Pataudi princess Sara Ali Khan is seen rocking soft smoky eyes and glossy nude lips. This Diwali, ditch the winged eyeliner and apply kohl to your upper lash line and top waterline. Instead of going for contoured cheeks, apply a bright pink blush on the apples of your cheeks to achieve this soft glam look. You can add a bright bindi to bring the whole look together.
Textured waves and loose curls are one of the most trendy looks this year. You can use either use a hair straightener or a curling iron to get this fuss-free look. The best part of this look is that you only need 15 to 20 minutes to achieve the waves. Just remember, the messier the better!
Janhvi Kapoor’s dramatic smokey eyes and matte lips
Actress Jahnvi Kapoor, who’s the face of a popular e-commerce beauty brand, sure knows how to leave makeup lovers ogling. Smokey eyes and matte lips can never go wrong and this picture of Janhvi is a proof! Here, Janhvi is seen wearing a my-lip-but-better shade, some bronzer and a subtle highlighter. Ace your makeup base with a full coverage foundation and watch a few tutorials to get the perfect kohl rimmed eyes. Take out the shimmery eyeshadow palettes that you haven’t used in months and dab on a golden shade on your lids to add some shimmer. You can also add some brown eyeshadow to your crease and lower lash line for a more dramatic look.
Katrina Kaif’s blue eyes
This look reminds us of rapper Honey Sing’s Blue Eyes song! Katrina, whose countered cheeks can give KKW mogul Kim Kardashian a run for her money, rarely steps out of her comfort zone when it comes to makeup. Her go-to look — nude lips and perfectly filled-in brows is our favourite. However, the Sooryavanshi star recently decided to go for a different look. Here, Katrina has given a twist to the average smoky eyes and has added a bright blue colour in the inner corners of her eyes. The quirky look is a must try if you’re looking for something unique this Diwali. Pick a bright shade that compliments your outfit for the pop of colour and keep the lips neutral. Use an eyebrow pomade to get a natural look and don’t forget to add a coral blush that suits your skin tone.
Kareena Kapoor’s classic kohl eyes
Kareena Kapoor’s kohl rimmed eyes is an effortless yet beautiful look for parties and festivals. You can go for a nude lip like Bebo or opt for a bold red mouth. Add some fake freckles and a small bindi to bring more attention to your eyes.

Kangana Ranaut’s Gajra
For those who do not want to go for a full face of makeup, Kangana Ranaut’s simple and traditional Indian look is the perfect guide. Just cover your imperfections with a concealer and dab some face powder to get an even skin tone. Brush out your brows and use a brow gel to define them. Moisturise your lips with your favourite lip balm and don’t forget to add a red bindi. Tie your hair in a neat bun and add gajra to get the perfect Diwali look.
Vidya Balan’s dark lips
This one is also for those who do not wish to spend too much time getting ready. Diwali is the perfect time to wear that dark lipstick you’ve been too shy to put on. Wear a light base and add a wine shade to your lips to get festive ready in seconds.
