TRY: Multicolour smokey eyes. The only eyeshadow rule you need to follow this seasons: more colour. Grab a palette with a bunch of different shades (like Nykaa Just Wink It! 12 In 1 Eyeshadow Palette in Crushed Berries, ₹1,499).
BYEEE: Monochromatic smoky eyes, just a liiittle snoozy.
Pro tip: Define your eyes with two different colour liners, then swipe on a complementary shadow.
TRY: Polished waves. They’re more ‘woke up early for this’ than ‘woke up like this’—and totally worth the effort. Blowdry, use a wand to create soft bends and finish with a smoothing spray.
Ugh, want these waves forever and always.
BYEEE: Messy waves. Save it for beach vacays.
TRY: Face crystals. Do your make-up as usual, then pop little sparklers (plenty of options with sticky backs on amazon.in) onto your cheeks and around your eyes. So pretty, so easy!
BYEEE: Hair crystals.They’ve had their moment.
TRY: Neck knot. Here to save yourself from basic buns everywhere. (Lock it in place with L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold, ₹2,400.)
BYEEE: Topknot. Leave this one to the ballerinas.
TRY: Floating liner. The bright wing is about to replace alllll the cat eyes. (Try swiping on Sephora Colorblock Liner, ₹900.)
BYEEE: Fixed liner .Not bad, just meh.
TRY: Cuticle art. The quickest way to a mani that your friends def won’t have: using a thin layer of nail glue to stick cool hardware (like these gold half-circles) to your cuticles.
Wait, you mean you don’t wear. chains on your nails?
BYEEE: Nail art. Been there, done that.
TRY: Matte lip stains. Break up with hard-core, crackly formulas and try a hint of matte tint that’s actually comfy. (We like M·A·C Versicolour Varnish Cream Lip Stain, ₹2,050).
BYEEE: Matte liquid lipsticks. Love you, Kylie, but...
TRY: Clip-in chains. These bad boys (there are a tonne of options on Amazon) are a thousand times more interesting than headbands, barrettes, or anything else you could possibly put in your hair.
BYEEE: Clip-in extenSions. For The Bachelor only.
TRY: Strobed lips. Chill with the face highlighter and focus on bringing light to your lips with a glittery gloss (like Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss in Crystal Clear, price on request).
BYEEE: Strobed skin.The over-glow is too OTT.
