A significant component of the holiday season is dressing up. Soon, the Hindu holiday of Dhanteras will be observed. Therefore it's time to start planning your glamorous outfits. Achieve this glamorous Dhanteras special makeup look in a few easy steps. Keep on reading!
Step 1: Clean the palette
Start with a clean face. This is an essential step that people tend to miss. They go straight to makeup without first following the three-step routine. Start with cleansing your face with a gentle face wash or cleanser. Apply a ph balancing toner. You can even opt for rose water or any other hydrating aerosol. Apply a thick layer of moisturizer to heal the skin barrier. If you have a day function, use matte finish sunscreen before applying Laxmi Puja makeup. You can skip this step during the night.
Step 2: Foundation and concealer
The next step is setting the base. Take a few drops of foundation and blend it into your skin with your fingers. Some women like to use a damp beauty blender or a foundation brush. Both work the same, in our opinion. Then take concealer one shade lighter matching to your skin tone and apply it to the areas you want to cover. Blend it the same way for a flawless Dhanteras special makeup look.
Step 3:Set your brows
The most overlooked area in makeup is the brows. The kind shape of brows makes your face appear more symmetrical and younger. Who doesn't love that, especially for Laxmi Puja makeup? Use a brow pencil to draw hair-like strokes and brush them upwards. Then use a brow soap or gel and set the brows in place. The latest trend in the beauty industry is full, bushy brows. And we love this trend. Tweeze any unnecessary stray hair but beware of over-tweezing. Your eyebrows are not meant to look like malnourished caterpillars.
Step 4: Add gold to your eyes
Since this is a Dhanteras special makeup, we have to add touches of gold. For this look, we have decided to add gold to the eyes. You are, however, free to use it wherever you like, such as on nails or using gold lipstick. Do have a look at our complete guide for eye makeup.
In your traditional Diwali makeup tutorial start by applying a coat of eyeshadow primer to your eyelids and blend it smoothly. This will prevent the De’lanci La Catrina Eyeshadow from starting to crease. Then, apply a base eyeshadow in a neutral color. Blend it with an eyeshadow brush.
Next, take a darker shade and blend it in the outer corner of your eyes. Once both colors are blended, apply DE'LANCI Pressed Glitter Eyeshadow Palette on your eyelids. Make sure to blend the eyeshadow first and add more products.
Step 5: Mascara time
Once you are satisfied with the eye look for your Dhanteras Makeup, take your favorite mascara and apply two generous coats of it. You can curl your lashes using an eyelash curler. Make sure to wait before applying the second coat. If you apply the second coat before the first coat gets dry, you can end with clumpy-looking eyelashes. An eyelash curler opens the eyes and helps them look more prominent. You can also add a thick layer of black liquid eyeliner on your upper eyelid. If you’re a beginner and still in doubt with how to apply eyeliner, read our guide. This part is, however, optional.
Step 6: Contouring for a chiseled face
If you are a complete beginner and trying the traditional Diwali makeup tutorial. If and do not know how to use contour to give an illusion of a more chiseled face, you can skip this step. For those who love to add more sharpness to the face, use cream contour and apply it to the sides of the face, below the hairline, and on the corners of the nose. Blend it with a contour brush or a damp beauty blender.
Step 7: Blush and highlighter
Once you are satisfied with how the contouring turns out, it's time to go in with the blush and highlighter. For glowy Dhanteras Makeup, apply generous coats of blush on your cheeks and highlighter. Take a liquid higher instead of a powder one for a more dewy finish. Blend everything with a damp beauty blender.
Step 8: Subtle lipstick
Since our eye look is heavy and maximalist, keep your lips subtle. Checkout our lipstick makeup guide and top it up with a clear gloss. For a fuller subtle lip, use DE'LANCI 25 Color Matte Lipstick Palette and lip liner in a shade close to the color of your lips and overline them very slightly. Now, your traditional Diwali makeup tutorial gets completed.
Seal the makeup by spritzing your face with makeup spray.
