1. Kaushal Beauty
British beauty blogger Kaushal has done Diwali makeup looks for the past few years and it’s always a simple look with some sparkle. For her look from 2016, she has a half-cut-crease look that is neutral enough for a puja but glam enough for the Diwali party.
2. Arshia Moorjani
Beauty blogger Arshia Moorjani’s 2017 Diwali look is all sparkle and glam! She creates a dramatic eye that is pretty simple to do. It’s a smokey twist to a dramatic gold and coppery-pink look.
3. Vithya Hair and Makeup
British beauty blogger Vithya came up with not one, but two unique looks for Diwali. The first is a simple look with smokey brown eyes and a pop of coppery glitter. The second look is another dramatic eye but this time in shades of green. Though both are gorgeous, the first look is geared more for a glam party while the second tutorial is a bit more subdued.
4. Shweta Makeup and Beauty
Shweta’s Diwali look was another simple look that was fresh and clean. Her makeup look is perfect if you’re not looking for anything dramatic but it still offers a pop of color. You can always replace the pink shade Shweta uses for any color that matches your Diwali outfit.
