Applying lipstick and face mask

Here are a few beauty hacks and neat make-up tricks to help you look fresh for longer hours, without smudging and help you get through every memorable moment on a New Year’s night.

Prepare Your Skin:

The first and foremost step before applying makeup is to prep your skin, both by exfoliating and hydrating it. Use good scrub for exfoliation that would remove all residual dead skin cells and make your face look clean and fresh. Hydrating the face will provide a clean surface for the makeup and will also further avoid fine lines that show up as the evening goes on.

Right Foundation:

Choosing the right foundation is a very important step in getting your makeup right. Avoid oil-based foundation as it would melt and slide off the face. Go for a24-hour wear foundations as they would last for longer hours. They are quite affordable too! Also talk to your makeup artist to get the skin tone right that would go well with your dress and accessories.

Go For Waterproof Makeup:

Water proof are like makeup savers on an important day. They are formulated to prevent melting, sweat and would last all evening. Choose waterproof mascara, eyeliner that won’t smudge and spoil your looks. To make your lipstick long last, apply lip-liner underneath the lipstick as the second layer ensures the colour remains seamless throughout the evening. However, keep applying lip gloss to avoid dryness on the lips. 

Setting Spray:

Setting spray is the best way to keep your makeup intact and even across the face. Be it a matte look or a dewy look, setting spray can ensure your makeup looks flawless. However, avoid touching your face soon after spraying setting spray, allow it to dry before putting on foundation.

Blotting Paper:

Nothing helps like a blotting paper if you find your makeup uneven or cakey across the face. Keep a blotting paper handy to prevent an oil build-up and to look flawless. Do not try and reapply the foundation again as it spoils the whole look.

Well, apart from following the beauty tips, we bring you two incredible beauty masks to exude that glam glow instantly!
