Balance the eyes with a soft and glossy look. You can play with various textures of the eyeshadow- matte, metallic, glitter, duo-chrome, to add to the look and make you stand out this festive season.

Important tip: If you have got an OTT hair accessory, keep your make-up look basic so that the look is balanced.
