It seemed to be an unspoken rule amongst celebrities to stay away from bold eye makeup and lips this season. The only thing bold were the eyebrows. And you know what? We’re relieved! The red lips and smoky eyes have enjoyed enough air time and need to take a backseat as nudes, no-makeup look, and monochrome looks enjoy their moment of glory.
What’s a monochrome makeup look? Essentially, it means sticking to one colour palette for the entire face. So, if you go for rose gold eyes then your eyes and lips need to be of similar shade too. Doesn’t it sound cool? Our celebrities didn’t exactly follow the rule to the T, but they made an effort. They mostly opted for pink lips and cheeks and kept the eyes nude.
Let’s start with Iqra Aziz, who aced the monochrome makeup look. Her lips matched her eyes and cheeks, and excepted for the pout, everything falls into place.
Armeena Khan might come across as a tad overdressed for Eid, but guys, she had our film’s premiere to attend at NYC so let’s not be quick to judge. Her hair and makeup, featuring pink lips and black thick eye liner, was so flawless we were mesmerized.
She’s rocking the short bob like a boss.

Mahira Khan, as we all know, loves to stick to basics. Her Eid look is an ode to that. Middle parted hair paired with peach-pink lips and a swipe of kajal, that’s it! Oh yes, loading up on mascara is absolutely essential for Mahira. P.s. We might go for this look tomorrow.
Ayeza Khan sported a similar look with slightly pink-ier lips and cheeks. She kept her eyes bare, keeping the focus on her bold eyebrows!
Pale pink lips and loose curls is what Mawra Hocane opted for. We love how our celebrities didn’t go overboard this Eid and kept it minimal!
Sadaf Kanwal chose to sport mauve lips, gold eyes, and a smile worth a million dollars. Her hair flicked around her face and the highlighter managed to look understated inside of overpowering the entire look.
Yumna Zaidi stuck to the code, but too glam things up, she chose to go heavy on the highlighter. You won’t see us complaining because we like what we see.
Top model, Amna Babar’s, lip shade bordered towards peach more than pink but the result is a flawless face and we like it!
Girls, keep your foundations for weddings and opt for BB creams or tinted moisturisers like our celebrities!
