 Glam up for the holidays with these chic Bollywood-inspired make-up looks

What is common between Bollywood’s grandeur and the magic of Christmas? Both are captivating, enchanting, and larger than life. They whisk us away into a world of dramatic costumes that we can only fantasize about. And so, if you're looking for some inspiration for the holiday season, take cues from your favourite Bollywood stars to add the Christmas sparkle to our looks. 

Go right with red:

Embrace the timeless allure of the season's signature color with a bold red lip. Deepika Padukone exemplifies the enduring elegance of this classic shade, proving its timeless appeal. But if bolder make-up is what you're looking for, then Kriti Sanon's fiery red eye make-up is a perfect way to capture the bold Christmas spirit. Pair it with a black dress or a sequined gown, and you'll have heads turning at every soiree!

Raining Rhinestones:

Step away from the jewellery box, rhinestones are the new sensation! Leading this trend is Kiara Advani who shows you how to embrace the sparkle by incorporating rhinestone accents into your eye make-up. Sonakshi Sinha, on the other hand, opts for clear rhinestone-adorned eyes that are a testament to the fact that diamonds are truly a girl’s (or anyone’s) best friend. Whether it’s a dot around the eyes or a daring brow embellishment, these gems are sure to add a touch of elegance to your overall look. 

Playful Graphics:

Enhance your holiday looks with bold graphics. Janhvi Kapoor's lilac sweep across her upper lid or Kriti Sanon's striking blue shimmer kajal are two striking looks, perfect for the holiday season. They add a touch of whimsy and charm to any Christmas outfit.

Magical Metallics:

Get ready to dazzle on the 'gram with Ananya Panday's ethereal metallic eyes. Metallic eyeshadows are the ‘IT’ trend of the season and we can’t agree more. Take it from Janhvi Kapoor, who effortlessly makes a bold wing out of blue metallic shimmer complemented by holiday green. These shades seamlessly combine shimmer and sophistication, adding a touch of drama to every celebration without seeming too much. 

Simply Glam: 

We love Alia for her naturally glam looks which are perfect for any occassion, including Christmas celebrations. A touch of blush with nude pink lips is all you need for a naturally flushed look, perfect for gatherings that call for a more subtle look. This make-up look represents the warmth and the charm that winters bring and we are all for it!

Sugar Plum Fairy:

The pink trend is not just limited to Barbie but has in fact reserved itself for Christmas as well. Embrace the essence of the sugar plum fairy with Anushka Sharma's mesmerising makeup. Her eyes are adorned with a shade of plum while her rosy cheeks evoke a dreamy holiday vibe. She pairs the look with a glossy lip paired and lots of highlighter along her sculpted cheekbones. Don't hesitate to go overboard with your blush, it’s all about embracing the candy floss hue. This look is perfect for the holiday season as it is both classy and enchanting.
