I finished applying my base makeup first and for that I used a face spray (The Body Shop Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz) as my skin was feeling dry and parched. Next, as a moisturizer I applied an illuminating cream (MAC Strobe cream). For a ‘not-so-heavy’ foundation look, I chose to use a cream foundation (MAC Studio Tech NC 30) and then to conceal areas that weren’t covered by the foundation, I applied a tiny bit of concealer (Kryolan FS22) under the eyes. Then I moved on to contour the cheeks (Inglot pressed powder 31), applied a peach blush (B&D No.9) and finally added a shine on my cheekbones (B&D No.10) as a highlighter.

Step 1: I began the eye makeup by applying a nude eye shadow (MAC Cork) all over the eyelid with the help of a fluffy dome shaped brush.
