Last Minute Diwali Makeup Shopping Guide

Need a guide for your last minute Diwali makeup Shopping? Here, I've selected some products that you might like. All my favorites, all affordable, all available in India.

Face:
  • Foundation: Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation - For almost flawless looking skin.
  • Concealer: Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer. To brighten up your under eye areas, and somewhat conceal any blemishes.
  • Powder: The Body Shop Loose Powder. A more affordable option is Maybelline Dream Matte Powder]
Eyeshadows:
  • Maybelline Color Tattoo On and On Bronze/Bad To The Bronze- Can be used as an eyeshadow base. Reviewed here
  • Colorbar Heatwave (shimmery taupe brown) - Some Colorbar eyeshadows are really nice and affordable at Rs.300. You can pick other shades too, see here.
  • Bourjois Intense Extrait #10 (matte black) - Reviewed here

Eyeliners:
  • Bourjois Effet Smoky Pencil Smoked Brown- Can be used as an eyeshadow too. You can also get the Intense Black I showed here
  • Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal- Reviewed here
  • L'Oreal Super Liner Instant Impact Felt Liner - It's very black & easy to use since it's like a pen. Shown here
Mascara: Bourjois Volume Glamour Max Definition Mascara. Gives volume & length. The only mascara I will repurchase. 
Blush: 
  • Lakmé Absolute Chromatic Baked Day Blush - Its a gorgeous pink that'll suit just about anybody.
  • MAC Fleur Power - Not affordable, but I just put it in there just in case =)
  • Lakmé Cheek Artist Kiss Of A Rose - Great natural-looking rosy blush.
Lips:
  • Deborah Milano Rosetto Red 09 - Bright red-pink. Gorgeous & classy color.
  • Maybelline Color Sensational lipgloss Touch Of Toffee - Nude. I repurchased this, coz I love it so much! Reviewed here
  • Bourjois Effet 3D Max Long Lasting Gloss #14 Rose Watery - Shimmery Pink for glamorous-looking lips.

Hope this comes in handy if you're going Diwali shopping in the next 2 days!

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
