Smoky eyes, the understated yet elegant no-makeup face also took a height this season and were exhibited by numerous eponymous labels. The shift from previous season has not been drastically sharp, but has rather evolved gradually to what it is today. We have shortlisted some of the quintessential styles which should definitely be on your festive lookbook.

EYE - CONIC BROWS

Glamour cannot get a better makeover than these glitter brows which are set to take the makeup game to the next level. Becoming a rage on social media in no time, this trend is easy to master even if you are not a pro in handling makeup. People have objected over its practicality, but its mesmerising look has won many hearts. The dazzling look can be experimented with diverse palette options from ice blue to warm amber. The best thing about this trend is that it does not go overboard, but effortlessly manages to get all the desired attention to the fore.

HIGH - ON - LASHES

Get your lashes on fleek in a matter of minutes. Vintage lashes are here to get a fuller effect. It adds volume and blends easily with the natural lashes. These were a fad in the 60s and came back in fashion in the 70s. The retro trend made a comeback on the Armani Runway in the Paris Couture Week’19. The look emphasised the top lashes for a simple, graphic eye. Curled with a spoon, they were customised to achieve a cat-eye like look. These lashes are sure to add more charismatic drama to your eyes. Sport the feathered effect and turn heads at every party.

GLISTEN - UP

To give your natural glow a boost, this no-makeup look is the trend everybody is swooning over. Winter calls for deeply nourishing and moisturising skincare range so our pick would be a highlighter with a creamy base. It should also be super blendable and easy to use. The market is brimming with such products, but we suggest to opt for a natural one. Chemical-free highlighters are the right choice as it oozes freshness and gives a naturally radiant glow. The shimmering yet subtle effect is ideal for a dewy, zero makeup look.

SPARKLE IT RIGHT

It dazzles up your face, once you find the perfect sparkly partner that compliments you right. Glitter eyeshadows come in various bases including the major ones, creamy and powder. You can increase the pigmentation as per your choice. Our take on this would be a more refined texture rather than one with glittery appearance. To ease the game even more, opt for metallic shade infused sticks. To master this palette, pair it with nude makeup to refrain from going overboard.
