Onam Makeup Looks That Are Bound To Turn Heads

So to help you find your ~lewk~ for Onam, we’ve rounded up the 10 prettiest Onam makeup ideas on Instagram. They’ll go perfectly with your off-white and gold saree!

The Ultra Glowy Skin

Glowy skin like this is a perf makeup look for any festive outing, but we especially love how low-maintenance it is for Onam. Prep your base with hydrating and illuminating products. Follow it up with concealer and foundation. Then, just sweep a shimmery highlighter across your cheekbones, and then to get the extra level of dewiness, use your fingers to tap a super-thin layer of Vaseline right on top. 

MyGlamm Recommends: Spotlight Illuminating Liquid - Stardust

If you love a liquid highlighter, this is the highlighter to call on. It feels undetectable, and the glow factor is buildable, super wearable, and totally believable. Beauty mavens praise it for exactly that, noting that it’s perfect for everyday use.

The Kohl-Rimmed Eye Makeup

You can’t go wrong with kohl-rimmed eyes and ultra-long lashes for the Onam makeup look. It’s cute, classic, and super easy to do. Ace your makeup base by applying a layer of primer followed by a foundation and concealer. Grab a kohl liner to apply on the upper and lower water line. Dab some golden shadow on your eyelids. Apply a couple of layers of mascara. Finish the look with a makeup setting spray and you’re sure to turn heads.

MyGlamm Recommends: Twist It Mascara

NGL, but it’s pretty tough to find an affordable natural mascara that’s waterproof. This product has everything we love about mascaras - it will curl and lengthen your lashes and give them a nice, clump-free volume that stays put no matter what! Also, you’ll never see the dreaded mascara goop in the corner of the eye that Chandler Bing complained about!

The Bright-Red Lip

Save the bright-red lipstick for Diwali and opt for a rusty, brick-red lipstick like this for Onam. It has warm brown undertones that feel super regal and are ultra-flattering too. All you need is this all-star lipstick to ape this makeup look.

Just dab a little pink or peach cream blush on the apples of your cheeks and blend it up towards your temples using your fingers, if you’re exacting, match your pout with your eyeshadow and lipstick.

MyGlamm Recommends: Tinted Perfection Brightening Banana Primer 

This one is a cult favourite for all good reasons. The multi-action balmy formula instantly blurs pores and reduces excess oil so you get your base in place. The tinted formula will prolong your makeup and give an instant brightness boost and there’s a subtle hint of yellow to revive dull, tired skin. We’re obsessed!

Gloss On, Worries Gone
