Traditional vs. Modern Diwali Makeup: A Radiant Clash of Styles

Traditional vs. Modern Diwali Makeup: A Radiant Clash of Styles

Diwali, the festival of lights, is not just about illuminating our homes; it's also about shining from within. And what better way to do that than with a stunning makeup look? In the world of beauty, Diwali offers two distinct paths: the timeless elegance of traditional makeup and the chic allure of modern styles. Let's explore the contrasts between the classic and the contemporary, using products from the Diam Beauty collection.

Traditional Diwali Makeup:

In the traditional corner, we have makeup looks that have stood the test of time. Think vibrant, rich colours, intricate detailing, and a touch of cultural heritage.

  1. Dramatic Eyes: Traditional Diwali makeup often features intricate eye makeup with bold eyes. With our Cheeky Affair Liquid Blush, you can use the bold shades: Rustic Rouge and Cinnamon Swirl to get that pigmented Diwali look. 
  2. Red Lips: A classic choice for Diwali is the timeless red lip. With each of our products, you can achieve this look! Our personal favourite way is to repurpose the Cheeky Affair Liquid Blush in the shade Rustic Rouge as a lip colour or Spiced Terra using Matte-nificent Liquid Lipstick!
  3. Bindi and Accessories: Traditional Diwali looks often include bindis, nose rings, and other accessories to add an extra layer of elegance.

Modern Diwali Makeup:

On the other side, modern Diwali makeup leans towards simplicity, highlighting natural beauty with a contemporary twist.

  1. Subtle Shimmer: Opt for a soft shimmer on the eyelids using the Cheeky Affair Liquid Blush in the shade Coral Crush for a more understated but still glamorous appearance.
  2. Nude Lips: Modern Diwali makeup often pairs a nude lip with a neutral eye look. Our Matte-nificent Liquid lipstick collection has every shade you need for that perfect minimalist look. 
  3. Glossy shine: Keep those eyelids and lips glossy with our Wet lip glaze. Simple yet elegant, a glossy tint goes a long way!

Whether you choose to embrace the timeless beauty of traditional makeup or the modern chic of contemporary styles, the key to a stunning Diwali look is confidence. Experiment with different looks, mix elements from both worlds, and, most importantly, celebrate the festival of lights with love, happiness, and a radiant smile. After all, beauty comes from within, and Diwali is the perfect time to let it shine.

So, which side are you on this Diwali? Traditional, modern, or a bit of both? Let your makeup reflect your inner light and enjoy the festivities with style.
