Irrespective of the weather you might be facing this year, we have assembled some significant makeup trends that will make a great impact, and you will get some appreciative glances from everyone.
How To Choose the Perfect Makeup For Eid
Eid, no doubt is all upon dolling up and slaying the entire day along with posting perfect pictures on Instagram and Snapchat. Keeping all points in mind starting from trend and style and ending on the type of weather we have everything figured out for you and here are a few points that will significantly help you:
- In case you live in areas with hot weather, go for powdery cosmetics instead of oily and liquid ones so that they can stay for long.
- Always use moisturizer and primer to create a perfectly flawless base for makeup.
- It is better to throw attention to one feature at a time, so either try out bold lips or smoldering eyes.
- Don’t be afraid of playing with colors and experiment different eye makeups like Arabic eye makeup or artwork inspired eye makeup
- If you have oily skin, keep your hand light on highlighter as it will look extra shiny and sweaty rather than giving you a healthy radiance.
- Use waterproof eyeliner and mascara so that it stays in place even if you sweat as this Eid is going to be hot.
- Once you finish the makeup use setting spray.

Eid festivals are mostly observed during the day time and doing the right kind of makeup during day time is tricky.

But this isn’t enough because you have to attend so many brunch and lunch on eid. Put on eyeliner and kajal and apply some bold color shades on your eyelids. If you are a contouring person, then go for it but avoid on-sleek contouring as it will make you look extra in the sunshine. Don’t forget to highlight your cheekbones. Apply a fresh color shade to your lips. You are not done here yet, use your makeup setting spray to make your makeup stay for long.

↓ 9. Natural No-Makeup Look
With more and more celebrities and fashion bloggers incorporating a natural no-makeup look, it would be interesting to try this very refreshing and wholesome makeup look for Eid this year. This look is perfect for daytime as it gives you that ideal glowy skin with minimal layers of makeup. The idea behind this look is enhancing your features without concealing them with a lot of makeup products.
Foundation and concealer play an essential role in this look, as they give you that that clear and dewy skin. For that great flushed cheek look, apply a soft pink or peach blush and darken your eyes with smudged dark liner. For lips, go for a very natural nude shade. Tadaa! You are set!
↓ 8. Violet Eye Shadow
This look can be carried in two different ways. Either you use the violet eyeshadow on the inner side of your eyelids and a different color on the outer lid like a peachy pink or coffee brown shade. Use a light lilac color eyeliner to emphasize the shape of the eyes and to make them look bigger. Use a neutral tone for the lipstick and a slight touch of blush to the cheeks, since the focus is on the eyes.
Another way to go with this is to use the violet shade for the smokey touch at the edge of the eyelid while going for a subtle lilac shade for the middle of the eyelid.
↓ 7. Nude Makeup Look
Nude makeup is loved these days! It is something really simple yet so attractive. It makes you look natural even after covering all your blemishes and spots. Try out this makeup look this eid; soft bronzing, contouring, highlighting along with eyeliner and beautiful nude lip color. Soft and fierce at the same time. Just perfect!
↓ 6. Artwork Inspired Look
Go bold or go home. Try something out of the box but still wearable in the heat of June.
Makeup is a form of art; let us transform this art into eyes. Your eyes will take the center stage and a whole lot of patience. Firstly decide on the colors you want to play with and then start. For this look, the emphasis is on the eyes, so go subtle on the blush and lipstick color.
Here’s a step by step video tutorial:
↓ 5. Neon Colored Liner
Add a pop of color this Eid. Neon colored liners are all the rage this year. A neon-colored liner will instantly emphasize your eyes most charmingly and create an electric feel perfect for Eid. You can go minimal neon by just using a liner or go for a bold look with neon eye shadow.
The lip color used in creating the above look is in the shade slay tan and gotta light by Smashbox.
↓ 4. Monochromatic Makeup Look
The monochromatic makeup look is not only beautiful but comfortable to go for since you concentrate on a single color and thus don’t have to decide on various shades for your skin, eyes, and lips. Start with a base color which is neutral like pink or brown toned and use this color for your eye shadow, blush, and lips. If you are not into makeup and want something comfortable for Eid, then this is your thing.
↓ 3. The Revival of Winged Eyeliner
It has been decided that the eyes will not take a backstage this year either and we see a swift revival of the winged liner from the old days to create those beautiful Cleopatra like eyes. You can either choose a soft look and go for a winged liner to beautify your eyes and use lighter shades of eye shadow. Or you can choose a dark color eye shadow for creating that perfectly sharp winged look. No eyeshadow and just winged eyeliner along with mascara will work out correctly as well. This idea is super chic and perfect if you don’t like much eyeshadow.
↓ 2. Cultural Inspired Makeup
Do you think that all bright solid colors blue, green and purple, etc. in your eye shadow palette are useless? We all do feel like this often, but now it’s time to get them all into use for bringing out the rich cultural heritage you belong to through makeup.
↓ 1. Glittering Eyes
Glittering eyes are now taking a front seat so grab your glittery eye shadows and dab your eyelids with beautiful shades of glitter. Why go subtle when you can glitter in a perfect shimmery eye shadow?
