My Diwali Outfit and Makeup

Hi peeps, how was your Diwali? Those of you who celebrated, I hope you had a blast. I sure did. There was last minute cleaning, a mini feast and a party to attend among the usual stuff. On top of that, I had to redo my sari twice. So, I had very little time for my makeup. Here is my Diwali outfit:

This is a burnt orange georgette sari with antique gold sequins in a honeycomb pattern all over. I kept rest of the bling minimal with a polki necklace and matching bangles. My FOTD was pretty simple as well.

  • Lotus Whiteglow Micro Emulsion
  • MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation in NC 41
  • Maybelline powder blush in Apricot Flush
  • Glittery Copper colour from Maybelline Chai Latte quad all over the lid
  • Colorbar i-glide in Cocobar on the upper lash line
  • Lakme Black Satin kajal on lower lash line
  • Lotus Herbals Pure Colours lipstick in Peach Creme as a base
  • MAC Twig lipstick
The last time I used Twig, camera flash brought out pink undertones very prominently. This time, I wanted it to retain the earthy colour in pictures as well. So, I added a coat of Peach Creme as base. Do you think it worked?
