Picking the perfect ensemble with jewellery and makeup that accentuates it is the key to stand out. Raminder Singh, principal jewellery designer, BlueStone gives some tips on how to make your outfit shine with the appropriate jewellery.

Subdued jewellery

If the outfit has a busy print or textures, ensure that it is paired with simple jewellery. Solid watches, earrings and bracelets go a long way. The focus should be on simplicity — a small pendant, diamond studs, and a simple bracelet is enough to make an outfit look complete.

Statement earrings

Match your earrings to your face shape and put on a pair of statement earrings to bring out your best facial features. For example, women with heart-shaped faces should consider earrings that are wider at the bottom for a balanced look. If your face is oval, triangular earrings or studs will help in showcasing your cheekbones.

Skin tone and jewellery

Gold tones go well with darker hair, while silver illuminates most natural tones. White gold, and gems pair nicely with cooler skin tones. Warmer skin tones go well with orange, yellow, and green gemstones.

Colour coordination

For a complete look, it is imperative to coordinate the colour of the jewellery pieces based on the outfit. White pearls match well with blue/green outfits. Purple clothes should be paired with green emeralds or gold-toned jewellery. Diamonds can be coordinated with any look, and black jewellery makes a neutral outfit look spectacular.

Davinder Kaur, makeup expert at MyGlamm, has listed down a few tips:

Colourful eyes

If there’s a time to get over your fear of colourful eye shadows and eyeliners, it is now. They sound intimidating but are actually really easy to use.

Flushed cheeks

To make your face look vibrant and fresh, use a generous amount of blush. Cheek tints are the best way to add that dewy glow, but if you want more saturated colour, layer it with a powder blush and set.

Statement lip colour

Festivals are the perfect occasions to make a statement with luscious lip colours. Pick bright reds/pinks and go bold. Top it up with a metallic or shimmery gloss for fresh and pouty lips.
