Maharashtrian makeup look

• Step 1: Prep your face

Don’t forget to prep your face before starting with the Maharashtrian or Nauvari saree makeup look. Begin by cleansing your face with a gentle facewash to get rid of dirt, dust, impurities, oil, and grime. Exfoliate effectively and follow it up with a hydrating serum. Then, moisturise your face with day cream and finish off by applying a broad-spectrum SPF religiously.

• Step 2: Ace the base

Doing your base makeup efficiently will enhance your simple Marathi makeup and help keep everything in place. To ace the base, start by applying a primer to blur pores and create a flawless canvas for the rest of your face makeup. Then, apply foundation to get an even texture and smooth base for your Maharashtrian makeup look. For an even complexion, choose a foundation shade that matches your skin tone and undertone. Next, use a concealer to banish the blemishes and correct dark spots, acne marks, and hyperpigmentation. Apply the concealer using the facelifting technique to achieve a seamless finish. Lastly, control oil, shine and sebum and lock your base with pressed powder.

• Step 3: Add colour and shine

Give your skin a naturally flushed look by applying blush on the apples of your cheeks. Then highlight the high points of your face using a highlighter. Apply the highlighter on your cheekbones, bridge of your nose and cupid’s bow to get that natural, Maharashtrian makeup glow from within.

• Step 4: Elevate your eyes

Take your simple Marathi makeup look up a notch by opting for an easy yet classy eye makeup. Start by shaping your eyebrows well as this will tie your entire Marathi look makeup together. Further, use a subtle eyeshadow shade and sweep it across your eyelids. If you wish to add that oomph factor to your Maharashtrian makeup, double shade your lids by using a darker eyeshadow colour on top. Follow it up by creating the kohl eye makeup using your kajal, eyeliner or both. Finish off your Nauvari saree makeup look for the eyes by applying a few coats of your favourite mascara.

• Step 5: Paint the pout

Add a final touch to your Maharashtrian makeup look by applying a liquid matte lipstick or velvet matte lipstick of your choice. Not sure which lipstick shade will suit you the most? Head to the L'Oréal Paris Virtual-Try-On tool to find lip makeup shades that suit you the best. This tool allows you to experiment with a variety of makeup products online, from the comfort of your home, without having to spend a penny. Once confident, paint your pout and you will be all set to rock your simple Marathi makeup look with ease.

• Step 6: Keep your Maharashtrian makeup intact

Keep your Maharashtrian makeup looking fresh all day and prevent smudging and fading with the setting spray. This will extend the wear of your makeup products and give it a ‘just applied’ look all day long, without frequent touch-ups. Using a makeup setting spray will also increase the intensity and vibrancy of your Marathi look makeup and make the colours pop from dawn to dusk.

So, try your hands on the above-mentioned easy yet creative Maharashtrian makeup look and have all eyes on you this festive season.
Additionally, allow us to help you create a gorgeous Nauvari saree hairstyle that you can pair with this makeup look.

Maharashtrian hairstyle

An important thing to keep in mind before starting with your hairstyle for Nauvari saree is to make sure that your scalp and strands are cleansed and moisturised thoroughly. Wash your hair with a nourishing shampoo that will cleanse your hair without stripping off the moisture and natural oils. Follow it up with a hydrating conditioner to seal in the moisture so that you can reveal soft, shiny, and luscious locks. Use a hair mask to give your hair the nourishment it craves and deserves and ensure that you get smooth, silky, shiny hair that feels extremely soft.

Pro tip: Use a hair mask once to twice a week depending on your hair type and needs.

Before achieving the Nauvari saree hairstyle of your dreams, allow the hair to air dry or blow dry on low heat. Go for the iconic Marathi bun hairstyle to look like a perfect ‘Marathi Mulgi’ that you are. To do so, all you need to do is take all of your hair up into a neat and clean bun and clip it in place. Take out a few strands from the front section of your hair, style them into soft curls and applying a few drops of hair serum to set it and avoid any frizz. Complete your Maharashtrian hairstyle by accessorising your bun with a Gajra. And voila!

So, what are you waiting for? Don your favourite Nauvari saree, wear a bindi on your forehead, and don’t forget to add on some traditional jewellery such as nose rings, bangles, and necklace and gear up to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi in style!
