Kolkata is gearing up to welcome the Goddess in all her glory. The hoardings are up, pandals have started to make an appearance, people are rushing to finish their puja shopping and in general, there is chaos in the city. This chaos we all eagerly look forward to every year and I’m just counting days like every Bengali, whether in Kolkata or outside, for the Goddess to arrive. I’m sure you all are busy figuring out what outfit and makeup you will wear during those five days and to make matters slightly easy, I’m here with a Day To Evening Makeup Look option for you.
If you have been a regular visitor to the MAC stores in Kolkata, I’m sure you have come across Druna and Prajwal, both very good makeup artists. Druna is now branching out on her own and she shared two looks for Durga Puja especially for the readers of Pout Pretty on model Manju.
Day Makeup Look By Druna
Considering the climate, this time it will be quite hot and humid during the Pujas so heavy makeup is out of question. Go for light makeup during the day. Mix your foundation with moisturizer for a natural finish. Add a wash of light eye shadow with a hint of peach on the cheeks, add kohl in the water line and on the lids, a thin liner with a slight wing to give the look a touch of tradition in case you are wearing a traditional or indo-western outfit. Complete the look by adding a n*de/light pink lip color, some mascara and touch up the brows, again keeping it natural. No Instagram brows please!
Evening Makeup Look By Prajwal
For the evening, just touch up your base makeup and go for dramatic eyes that is again not OTT. Just add some dark brown/black to the outer corners of the eye, apply a mascara that adds volume and lengthens the lashes, contour the face to add some dimension and apply highlighter for added shine. Change the lip colour from the n*de/neutral pink to a slightly deeper pink to brighten up the face. And that is it. You are ready to dazzle!
Do you see how easy it is to transition from a day to evening makeup look? Thanks Druna and Prajwal for your inputs and if you want to see more such looks on the blog, let me know in the comments below.
Druna is conducting a makeup workshop to teach the basics like smokey eyes, highlighting and contouring and the ‘no makeup look’ at a very nominal rate of Rs 1000. If you want to book your place, call her now for details.
