On October 30, thousands of those who practice Hinduism will celebrate Diwali, the Festival of Lights. Children will wake up at sunrise for a traditional body scrub and oil bath. And women will adorn their wrists with stacks of colorful bangles and sweep their lids with metallic shadows and inky kajal liners. After dark, skies across the globe will light up with fireworks and paper lanterns, all as a symbolic way to illuminate the beauty of this world. Today, M.A.C. has released a limited-edition Diwali Light Festival Collection encouraging women everywhere to light up their own beauty in honor of the special occasion.

Though Diwali is largely celebrated in India, the compact collection makes it easy for anyone to observe the holiday with a vibrant beauty look. The Eyeshadow X 9/Light Festival palette includes nine shades inspired by flickering lights. With hues ranging from scintillating golds to black matte, there’s a shadow inside for any skin tone or eye color.

Also included in the collection is every product needed to complete a bold eye look. Apply your shade of choice from the palette with the 239 Eye Shader and to blend colors, try the 217 Blending. Darken your lash lines with the brand’s cult-favorite Fluidline Pen in Retro Black, or opt to recreate the the more dramatic liner looks seen in popular Bollywood films with the Modern Twist Kajal Liner.  

Diwali is a day to show appreciation for the world and those around you. So consider buying the full set for a friend or family member who could use a splash of color in her makeup kit. Or, grab an item that’ll help you prep for the big day!

 

All items sold separately and available today, October 6 through November 17 on maccosmetics.com.
