Festive Fever | 4 Minimal & Dramatic Makeup Looks for Rakshabandhan 2022

Finally, the festive season arrives with Rakshabandhan blowing the clarion. Now that you have already taken your Anarkalis and Jhumkas out of the closet, all you need is some awe-inspiring Rakshabandhan Makeup Looks to amp up the festive glam.

Good news for both minimal and high-drama babies. We have got you both simple and glamorous Rakshabandhan Makeup Looks inspired by Bollywood celebrities so that you don't have to compromise on your makeup aesthetic.

To turn up the festive bling the Desi way, here are 5 makeup looks that you can pull off this Rakshabandhan.

1. A glowing gala

Royalty reaches a new height when traditional attire is teamed up with minimal makeup. For instance, Aditi Rao Hydari's makeup look oozes a warm and magical glow without going over the top.

To get Aditi's festive glow for Rakshabandhan 2022, hydrate your face with Spotlight Illuminating Lotion and go for Colorbar’s 24 Hrs Weightless Liquid Foundation for a dreamy satin finish.

Illuminate your eyes with a bronze eyeshadow from Colorbar's Berry Blush Palette. A peach blusher followed by a highlighter will give a soft glow to the face, while a rosy lipstick will add a sweet pop of color to the look.

Just some soft curls along with Kundan Jhumkas will add the right amount of festive bling to this look.

2. A Rosy Rapture

A Rakshabandhan Makeup Look inspired by who else but the minimal makeup goddess herself. Alia Bhatt’s makeup look is all things angelic - a pristine glowing base with hues of pink adorning the eyes and lips.

To achieve Alia's glass-like glow, highlight the cheekbones and high points of your face with Glow Crazy Highlighter. A sweep of pink eyeshadow with thin black eyeliner will suffice for this fresh-as-daisy look. For the perfect pop of pink on the lips, pick up the Kinky shade from our Sinful Matte Lip Color Range.

Lastly, complete this soft glam makeup look with a small black Bindi and some roses tucked in your hair.

3. Blazing Blue Eyes

If there's one makeup look that has taken 2022 by storm, it's the graphic/colored eyeliner look. And it's time to include this trend in your ethnic glam binge.

If you notice, Hina Khan has kept the rest of the makeup very light with just a hint of blush on the cheeks and a light-shade lipstick. The only drama going on here is on the eyes. Line your upper lash line with Colorbar's All Rounder Pencil in Blooming Bloo and lower waterline with a thin stroke of Intensely Rich Kajal. For Hina's fluttery lashes, coat your eyelashes with generous amounts of mascara.

For those who like their festive makeup look to be as dramatic as possible. Deepika's kohl-rimmed eyes with chunky eyelashes on a radiant base is exactly what Desi Drama is made of!

Ride high on radiance with a hydrating foundation and crazy loads of highlighter. Fill your brows to amp up the drama. Blend a medium brown eyeshadow on the entire eyelid up to the crease. Line your upper lashline with thick strokes of Infinite 24 Hrs Liquid Eyeliner and extend the liner to create a small wing. Line your lower lash line with bold strokes of kajal and connect it to the wing. Add volume to your lashes with Colorbar Zoom and Whoosh Mascara. Seal the deal with a nude lip.
