Makeup is magic, it has the power to completely make or break your entire look. Wear a subtle lip with your smokey eye, and you can stun, switch that up with the trendiest Marsala tint, and you may end up looking over-the-top and take all the attention away from your outfit.
And while many minimalists, read: Anushka Sharma, Alia Bhatt, love to keep it simple when it comes to makeup, a lot of our more experimental celebrities have begun to experiment with dramatic eye-makeup and quirky eyeshadows, especially playing with bright colours on their eyes. And we absolutely love it!
So be it Sara Ali Khan’s bright, angular yellow eyeshadow, Disha Patani’s lavender and purple eye makeup or Kriti’s edgy blue lids, these celebrities are paving the way for quirky makeup trends, and showing you how to take your look to the next level with a simple brush stroke. Get the look:
Sara Ali Khan
The overdramatized eye makeup was a great contrast with her teal blue co-ord set, Sara had a subtle rust coloured blush on her cheek and a simple gloss on her lip to finish her look. This is quite an easy look to begin with.
Dressed in a quirky, printed Anamika Khanna jacket-coulottes co-ord set, Sonam decided to play up her already quirky look with a gorgeous pair of silver jhumkas and a bright, sunshine yellow hue on her lids. Stunning as always, Sonam.
During her trip to Cannes this year, the actor pulled off some of the most edgy and quirky looks, but the one that stuck with us was her dramatic eye makeup that she wore with her custom-made, heavily-structured white and black gown by Peter Dundas. Put a light shimmer on your top lid, some white kohl on your lower waterline and put the eyeliner as usual, but just on your bottom lid, and you’re good to go!
During the promotions of Arjun Patiala, Kriti wore a gorgeous ink blue sequinned dress by Rutu Neeva. The actor added a bit of quirky to her outfit with her fuchsia pink shoes, which may or may not be a questionable choice, but it was her makeup that amped up her entire look.
Looking absolutely stunning in a tropical-inspired, heavily embroidered orange gown, Disha added that extra oomph to her look with a hot fuchsia pink eyeshadow on her lid, while a deep brown shadow added some glamour to her under eye, with a hint of silver on the corners making her look as fresh as a daisy. What a truly wonderful combination.
