Simple Make-up Tips to Keep You Looking Fresh and Attractive at all Times

Beauty SOS - Here are simple make-up tips to keep you looking fresh and attractive at all times

Channel your beauty regime to look great in a matter of minutes. It is all about refining your make-up technique.


Start with a moisturiser that has a built-in foundation. Make-up expert Cory Walia says, “Use products that do double duty. Mineral make-up is the best for that Use a mineral make-up base powder. It effectively covers pigmentation and unevenness. Carry it around in your purse for whenever you need it. With this as a base, apply a nice thick line of eyeliner on your upper eyelid, and apply shimmery lip-gloss for a quick make-up fix for your face.”


If dark circles are an issue, here’s how you can look alive after a long night. First soothe your fatigued eyes by pressing cool chamomile tea bags or chilled cucumber slices over them. Then, massage in a base foundation and apply concealer on the dark circles. Use a light brush or your fingers to smoothen it out. Says hair and make-up expert Ruhi Bindra, “Use a nice under-eye cream and make sure that you use waterproof eye make-up, specially during the rain, as you don’t want your mascara streaking down your cheeks.”


For that luscious pout, all you need is a good plumping fix. Line your lips a little outside your natural lip line and fill in with lipstick. “Use lip tints that not only colour, but moisturise as well. Lighter shades of lipstick will make your lips look bigger. Don’t use very creamy lipstick, as there are chances of it bleeding. Use red lipstick for instant glamour. Finish with dotting lipgloss in the centre on your lower lip for that bee-stung effect,” says Ruhi.


If your skin looks lacklustre, use a loofah in the shower to get rid of those dead skin cells. And naturally healthy and glowing skin, is the best make-up, says Cory. “Exfoliate your skin often, and with time the skin texture and tone will improve. Apply a shimmery body lotion all over to instantly brighten your complexion. Always use a foundation which is closest to your skin tone. Do not overdo the mascara and kajal part. You can finish off with a bronzer for that delicious, sun-kissed look,” adds Cory.


Apply a tinted moisturiser over your fresh, clean face.

Eyes: Line your upper lid with a black, brown or dark blue eyeliner to make your peepers look bright. Brush some luminous shadow over your lid and finish off with black mascara to open up your eyes even more.

Cheeks: Dust some rouge or bronzer over your cheek bones to define and bring out the angles in your face.

Lips: Put on a lipstick that matches your dress, or simply use a shiny clear gloss to let your natural lip colour show. Apply gloss right in the centre of your mouth to give the impression of fuller, plumper lips.

DAB IT: Touch up your face every time it feels greasy
