Winter & Festive Beauty Trends Decoded

Winter & Festive Beauty Trends Decoded

Makeup trends are back in full swing and so is the festive fervor to get us going!


What’s #hot this winter on the beauty shelves?

"Tis the season" to make way for experimentation and transition from a makeup newbie into a beauty pro. We are talking monochromatic shimmer, glazed lips and graphic eyes. For the impending festivities and weddings top trends like bold lips, molten metallics and colourful cut creases are already knocking at our door.

So what do you think will 100% work for Indian skin? Here’s our Handy Makeup Guide(HMG):


Top Trends: Bold Blush, Soft Contour

This season's blockbusters are bold blush and soft contour and they are beautifully redefining the makeup game for all skin tones. Think bright orange blush and you’ll not be able to pick a shade of brown skin that it doesn’t complement.

When it comes to soft contour, the trick is to match your concealer to the foundation for an effortlessly blended contour.

If you are feeling experimental, there are TikTok trends like “Marinated Makeup” and “Grunge” that are making their way to us from gram’s beauty girls.


Top Trends: Bold Pout, Glazed & Glossy Lips

It’s time to bring back the focus to your pout after the pandemic, which almost made lip colours obsolete. The best way to go about it is to go LOUD. Bold hues like the tried-and-tested bright red, deep cherry, burgundy and plum are great picks for most Indian women. It is also recommended to go for velvety mattes or hydrating formulas to keep lips soft and nourished.

Another key trend for fall and festivities is glazed lips. Yes, they are high on shine and almost reflective. Hinting at a strong rebirth of the 2000s, you should complete your glazed lips with a strong lip liner for that iconic Y2K look.




Top Trends: Fluffy Browns, Bleached Brows

Eyebrows are certainly not losing focus this season and are in fact attracting all the eyeballs. While fluffy brows are all about embracing softness and looking natural, bleaching the brows is at the other end of the spectrum and not for the faint hearted!

Interestingly, both trends have earned a heads up from skin beauty gurus.


Top Trends: Bright & Bold Eyes, Graphic Eyeliner

This season is all about letting your eyes take centre stage with bold yet wearable makeup looks. Shades of blue are a total rage and so is the quirkiness that comes with graphic eyeliner looks.

As a brown skin woman, you can try going bold with a single-colour eye shadow paired with a neutral lip and extra mascara. Colored eyeliners in forest green, sapphire or cobalt will also be an instant hit.

Must-Try Festive Looks

Winters in India are not just about the fall in temperature but also about celebrations and weddings. While you should start with skincare as it is an important foundation to prep your skin for the season, your makeup should reflect the season’s mood.


For 2022, festive and wedding go big on bling and also embrace your individuality. Here are top 3 makeup trends can try:


1. Moody monochromatic

If you want to climb the beauty ladder one step at a time, going for a monochromatic makeup look is the best way to start. Not only is it trending but it works beautifully on brown skin. The idea is to make the face, lips and eyes match using a soft contour. Add rich smoky eyes or single-shade cut crease to own your skin and look your festive best.


2. Crystal & Gems

This year is all about face gems, shimmer and glitter and ways to incorporate it are more than you can count. Be it creamy glittery eyeshadow or crystal-accented eyes, there are no boundaries to invite glamour to your look.


3. Glossy Goodness

Glossy lips and glazed skin are a match made in heaven. Start with drenching yourself in hydration and working towards a radiant finish with a bold plump pout.

The Mokah Take

The key to creating show-stopping makeup looks starts with owning your inside and adding glam to your outside beauty. It’s also the best time to experiment and go bold, it is makeup for winter, weddings & beyond.

Slightly lived-in and not-so-perfect beauty looks are finally getting embraced, shine on!
