Here are some cues to help in the makeup application

  • In case if you are applying makeup for the first time, it’s best to do a patch test of the foundation before stepping out. If you land up with some allergic reactions, stop using the product immediately.
  • Don’t compromise on skin care. Always begin by washing your face with a face wash and following it up with a moisturizer with SPF. Choose the moisturizer according to your skin type.
  • Initially wear eye shadow colors that are more towards the neutral lines until you get confident to carry other shades. Once you are comfortable with coppers, golds, bronzes etc., experiment with bolder colors.
  • Don’t blindly copy a look that a friend or colleague is wearing. It might not look as good on you as it might on her as everyone’s features are different. Tweak it to your style and be confident.
  • If you have a bright lip color tucked in some corner of your vanity, now is the time to bring it out! Dab it on your lips with your fingers and top it up with a pink/flesh tone lipstick to achieve a gorgeous pout!
