Merge a bright pink towards the outer corners in a v-shape and add definition to your eyes by adding brown eye-shadow in your crease. Wing out both your eyes with a liquid liner. Strike a balance by smoking out your lower lash line with a pink shadow. Add volume to your lashes by applying mascara. Apply kohl to your lower as well as upper water line but leave the inner corner of the eyes bare. This makes the eyes look open. Opt for the Lakme Eyeconic Eye pencil. The Lakme 9 to5 Eye Quartets are excellent shadows that offer a generous amount of glitter and pigment.

Since the eyes already reflect screaming vibrancy perfectly tuned for Ganesh Chaturthi, go for an exceptionally light blush on. A cream blush would look more natural and suit the makeup. The Body Shop’s Lip And Cheek Velvet Sticks are recommended for this look. It goes without saying that an occasion like Ganesh Chaturthi calls for a photo session. The highlighter is an indispensable product to apply in times like these as it catches the light and reflects the right amount of it when a snap is clicked. It makes your skin look absolutely luminous and beautiful. Skip contouring as there too much of anything is bad and so it goes for makeup too. The Sivanna Shimmer Highlighter is a very good and affordable option to select.


Use a hot pink lipstick to finish your look. Lakme’s pink flash in the absolute range would suit most complexions. It’s a matte lipstick that requires prior moisturization of the lips. Slab a generous amount of lip balm before you begin your makeup and remove it before applying your lipstick. This will help your lipstick last longer and refrain your lips from drying. Maybelline’s Baby Lips offers a good range of lip balms to choose from. Lastly, set your makeup by dusting a light layer of translucent powder all over your face. This will not let your make-up become cakey. The Laura Mercier is the best-selling translucent powder available in the market. Now, there is one more step that cast magic over your look. Spray rose water all over your face and let it dry. This is going to lend a more natural finish to your makeup while adding a degree of dewiness to it.


One of the best hairstyles for this Ganesh Chaturthi is an updo. Not only does an updo keep the hair from falling on the face while taking part in the Puja activities, but it also lends grace and elegance to the wearer. You can choose from simple updos like a bun or chignon or opt for a more Grecian type of a hairstyle


Though Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated all over India, the scale of the grandeur and pomp that takes place in Maharashtra cannot be compared with. Therefore, Ganesh Chaturthi is mostly associated with this part of India. It is but natural then that you could add a “Marathi” element to your look for Ganesh Chaturthi by wearing a nath. These days a wide variety of “clip-on naths” are available that you can choose from.



Tips & Tricks 

Freshen up those puffed eye bags after some late-night Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations. Not getting enough sleep during these days or being super stressed can lead to bags under your eyes. Mix salt and water and soak a cotton ball in it. Gently place these soaked cotton balls on your eye bags for instantly smoother skin and reduced puffiness.

Use the same product for your eyes and cheeks and save your time. Ganesh Chaturthi preparations keep you engaged, leaving you no time to do full face makeup. Forget about choosing individual complementing shades for your cheeks and eyes, which can be a time-consuming task. Instead, buy a product that you can use in both areas. Go with a shade that has a sun-kissed tone to it, which will look natural on both, your eyes and cheeks.

Use hair spray to doll up your eyebrows. If there is no time to use the tweezers, keep your irregular brows in place by spraying hair spray on a clean mascara wand or a toothbrush. Brush it across your brows and style them as you desire. You will be surprised to see your challenging brow lines all tamed.

Moisturize your skin well to get that polished and sculpted look. The trick to have a polished and smooth looking face before you apply makeup is to moisturize your skin well. But less is more, where moisturizer is concerned. Moisturizers take about 10 minutes to be absorbed by the skin before your face is makeup-ready. That is why you should avoid slathering it on too much.

Ditch the foundation. If you are blessed with good skin, ditch the foundation to save some time and use a concealer in the right shade. Finish it up with a compact to add sharpness.

With these beauty inspirations, we hope you have more fun celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi.
