India is popularly known as the country of festivals. Be it festival of light, Diwali, or celebration of the sibling bond, Rakhi, all we girls need is an excuse to wing that liner and pop the red lipstick. Celebrations like these give us a chance to finally escape from the mundane casual outfits and opt for a bright and beautiful ethnic dress. From head to toe, everything must showcase festive feels. The dress might cover the body but what steals the show is always your face. Here is a guide to some prominent makeup looks that you can rock this Rakhi. 

Makeup looks ideas for Rakhi 2021-

Rakhi 2021 is special for all of us as last year most of us could not celebrate it due to the lockdown. This year comes with lots of hopes and aspirations between the sibling bonds. Special years like this call for a special look

  • Natural Glow Makeup- Keeping in mind the monsoon season, it is recommended to not wear any heavy makeup or makeup that is not waterproof. To get the perfect natural glowing makeup look, you must prepare ahead of time. Apply a home-made face pack a few hours before doing makeup or you can also apply a sheet mask for radiating skin. Choose a foundation matching your skin tone and apply it very gently to cover the whole face, especially the blemishes. Blend the product with a damp beauty blender by the tap-tap method. Apply a few drops of a cheek tint or you can also apply a little bit of lip gloss on the cheekbones and blend it with the foundation. Lastly, curl your lashes or apply gel mascara and pop a shade of lipstick that goes with your outfit. Voila! Your natural makeup look is all set. 
  • Blush baby blush- For all the girls who love blushing baby cheeks, high-five to you girl! Wash your face with a cleansing face wash and tap dry it. Apply a moisturizer that is not too oily. Get your base ready but remember it must not be cakey. While blending the foundation, apply cheek tint in diagonal motion on the cheekbones and near the nose. Blend it well with the foundation. When in doubt, just pout and apply some blusher. Smile a little and apply the blush on your cheekbones, cheeks, and a tad bit on the nose. To enhance the look, you can also do contouring. This blushing baby look never goes out of style and also goes along with any and every traditional outfit. 
  • The glittery glam- In case you are going to attend a function or party at night, you can always opt for glittery eye makeup to look bold and beautiful. A minimalistic base with smokey eye makeup goes really well and to add that wow factor, you can always apply a little bit of sparkling eye shadow. In case you are not a fan of all glittery and shimmery looks, you could apply eyeliner and add a stroke of kajal to it. Every ethnic look is practically incomplete without a stroke of kajal. In order to keep your makeup long-lasting, make sure that your base makeup for the eyes is done well. Concealing the eyes perfectly will help you get a dreamy look. Also, don’t forget to uplift the brows as highlighting the brows plays a very important role in eye makeup.

The most important thing to wear in makeup is your ’Smile’. No matter which makeup looks you choose this festive season, everything will look good on you if you are satisfied and comfortable in carrying it. Applying makeup is an art where the face becomes a canvas. If you are interested in trying out new looks for every event, you must enroll in an online makeup course and learn about it in detail. So this Rakhi season, rock the makeup look of your choice with confidence.
