Diwali Festive Makeup Looks using Maybelline Instaglam Boxes

Hi Everyone, πŸ™‚

Maybelline asked me if I could create some makeup looks using their Instaglam boxes. These are their festival fieworks boxes with 5 products each. Every box is color themed – coral, wine and pink. I think these make very fine gift boxes for girlfriends. Isn’t it? πŸ™‚

I have created 3 wearable looks that you can create on your own and in no time. One look is bold and two looks are simple with a hint of twist. πŸ™‚ Hope you recreate some of these for Diwali. πŸ™‚


That’s how the box looks.Β There is kajal a liquid liner, a blush, a nail polish and a lip polish.

Look 1 using Maybelline instaglam Box in Wine : This is a bold winged eyeliner look. If you are daring to go all out to make a statement this is the one that you should try. πŸ™‚

I have roughly drawn the winged eyeliner using the Maybelline Colossal Kajal. I have also smudged it lightly all inside the wing I created. Then I went all over the liner and edges with a Hyperglossy liquid eyeliner in black to make the edges very sharp and make the liner look bold. On the inner corner I have used the purpleΒ liquid liner from the box. On lips I have very slightly used the Glam 5 lip polish and cheeks and nails are also done using products from the box. πŸ™‚

Look 2 using Maybelline Instaglam Box in Pink : I have kept this look more on the softer prettier side.

For the eyeliner I have drawn a hollow winged eyeliner using the Hyperglossy black liquid liner and filled the wing with the metallic blue liquid liner from the box. I applied a little bit of blue shimmer on the inner corner of the eye. Also, there is a bit of colossal kajal on the waterline. Everything in the box except the liner is kept quite soft and subtle. You can make your liner bold or thin depending on your preference. I wanted this look to be very soft and prettyΒ so I went with a thin liner. The blue pigment of the liner is quite intense so that’s would be the surprise element of your look. πŸ™‚

It gets so busy amidst the festivities that sometimes you just want to put a bold lip and call it a day. So that’s what is there in this box a beautiful bight coral red lip polish. There is a black liquid liner in the box that I applied on the upper lash line. For a little twist I used the gold hyperglossy liquid liner in gold and traced it on the edge of the black liquid liner and on the inner corner of the eye. I mean there’s no Indian festival without gold, right? πŸ˜€
