Go blue like Sonam Kapoor

We love the way Sonam Kapoor has let her metallic blue eyeshadow take center stage and paired it with tight-lined kohl eyes. To lock in your look, don’t forget to take some blue pigment and smoke out your lower lash line. 

Try Nargis Fakhri’s classic beauty look

Nargis Fakhri teaches us an important beauty lesson: you can’t go wrong with red lips. Add some extra sparkle to your look with a swipe of golden shadow on your brow bone and lower lash line.

When in doubt, go for Parineeti Chopra’s smokey eye

We love a good smoked-out eye and Parineeti Chopra keeps her look interesting by pairing her statement eyes with a mauve lip color, versus the usual nude shade. To tie your look together, don't forget to line your upper and lower lash line. 

Play with purple hues like Millie Bobbi Brown

Millie Bobbi Brown has wowed us with her iridescent purple eyeshadow. For statement-making results, pair this look with fluffy, natural brows. If you're having a bad brow day (yes, it is thing), use a brow filler. Make sure you comb in the product with a spoolie to prevent harsh lines. 

Lily Aldrige’s silver lids + red lip = Goals

All the glitter this party season doesn’t only belong on Christmas trees and ornaments. Take a cue from supermodel Lily Aldridge and load up some silver sparkly pigment on your lids. Rather than sweeping glitter across your lids, we suggest dabbing it with your finger or a damp brush. Finish off with some bronzer and red lipstick.  

Embrace pastels like Lucy Hale

Actor Lucy Hale makes a strong case for pastel makeup. We love how she’s skipped highlighting the inner corner of her eye and instead opted for a mint green shadow to make her look pop. Brushed up brows and a satiny lip tie her look together perfectly. 

Work an unusual combination of colours like Lily Collins

If you’re thinking of dialing down the drama when it comes to makeup, try going the Lily Collins way. The Emily in Paris actor has picked a subtle wash of blue color for her lids and paired it with a light coral-nude shade on her lips. A combination we didn’t see coming. This eye look is by far the easiest way to make a statement. Just prime your lids and sweep some colour on your lids with your brush or a finger. 

There's nothing like some beauty inspiration to get you out of a beauty rut! Get ready for 2021.
