The onset of festivities gives us the excuse to dress up in our finest. With stunning festive wear like sarees, kurtas, ghagra, palazzos, capes, crop tops, and dhoti pants to flaunt this season, it is equally important that our festive makeup brings out our inner diva!
Here are 7 dos and don’ts to make you glow like the Goddess you are:
First & Foremost: Take Care Of Yourself And Your Skin
It’s important to keep your skin healthy, even more so during a festival time when sweets and unhealthy fried foods are passed around. Drink lots of water and make time for exercise – sweating it out helps release those toxins!
Blur Those Pores For A Flawless Finish
Remember that your face is the canvas. Cleanse before and after applying makeup products. Use a good moisturizer or primer to minimize your pores and help set your makeup with a smooth, even finish.
Embrace Your Skin Tone
Always choose the foundation shade that matches your beautiful skin tone to avoid looking chalky or grey.
Classic Red And Gold
You can never go wrong with a traditional red and gold makeup look. Glide on some gold eyeshadow, plump your lashes with mascara and add a swish of liner over your top lash line. Perfect your pout with luscious berry red lips, and dab some highlighter in the middle of your lips to give a fuller appearance. Apply blush on the apples of your cheeks for a healthy, rosy glow.
Brighten Your Eyes
You can highlight the inner corner of your eyes to give the impression of wider doe-eyes. Kohl on your lower waterline lends a sultry yet coy feel to your overall look.
Keep It Simple
Cake-face is okay on birthdays, but never makes for a good festive look! Remember: less is more. Too much foundation and bronzer can make your face appear patchy.
The Most Important Tip Of All: Never Forget The Quintessential Bindi!
A bindi is the exclamation point to any Indian outfit. A festive Indian makeup look is incomplete without it! Bindis also draw attention to your forehead and eyes.
