A Very Bitta Diwali

I hope everyone had a wonderful Diwali and festive season! This truly is one of my favorite times of the year. In addition to spending time with loved ones and enjoying delicious holiday foods, I always look forward to this time for all of it’s #EthnicGlam. As much as I love wearing beautiful Indian clothes and jewelry, the look is never complete without some Bollywood-worthy makeup 🙂

I’ve tried my fair share of eyeshadows over the years and I always turn to MAC for my go-to metallics and shimmers. I used these as a beginner and they are great for a fool-proof and consistent application. So far, I haven’t experienced any exaggeration of fine lines with these shadows, which is a major plus for the 30+ sector!

Liquid liner with a flick is pretty much a staple for any South Asian look and I have been having such an easy time of it with the Makeup Revolution liquid liner pen. I bought it for the beautiful rose gold packaging (yep, I’m a sucker!), but it really is one of the best liquid liners I’ve ever used! For my finishing touch, I decided to go for an iconic lipstick, MAC Ruby Woo, and for a bit of Desi flair, I topped it with a Smashbox liquid lip for the perfect bronzy, metallic finish.
