In my latest beauty story, “Balancing Bollywood Accessories & Beauty,” I would like to show the world how to balance statement jewelry with equally ‘show-stopping’ beauty.

Whether you like to be the belle of the ball or you prefer to keep it demure, these three looks (modeled on the one and only Nilisha Patel) will inspire your makeup looks for the rest of the year!

Boho Bliss
Smoldering Sapphire Sophistication

Smoldering Sapphire Sophistication

A dark blue outfit with gold accents paired with smoky eyes, a classic red lip, contoured cheeks and perfectly-arched brows; the already-magnificent look is elevated to otherworldly heights. Other wow-worthy details? Nilisha’s sly smile and enviable lashes.

Large gold and pearl earrings: House of Marigold

Glimmering Goddess

Keeping it relatively simple, makeup-wise, lets the intricate outfit steal the show. Breathtakingly beautiful, this look is certainly a head turner. The gold applique and rose petaled outfit – with an enchanting assortment of colors and floral embroidery work – pairs perfectly with sheer smoky eyes, soft coral lips and a bold blush.

This ethereal look swirls together sultry glamor and angelic sweetness and captivates completely. Smoky eyes, rosy blush and light pink lips add just the right amount of charm, while the boho-inspired faux-flower crown, tousled locks and fabulous pearl-embroidered top and fluffy skirt pack a playful punch.
