A Dewy Eid

A glossy way to makeup

The glossy and hydrated trend to makeup has become very popular globally and can be a great look to sport this Eid. So, bid adieu to chalky, dark and patchy makeup. Whether you are going for a brunch, hosting dinner or just catching up with friends, this is the look to opt for the season. You can easily complement it with chiffon saris in floral prints or tie-dye dresses.

What if I have oily skin?

For those who are naturally endowed with oily skin, the above makeup technique to achieve the dewy look may actually be a bad idea. The skin may become extra oily and sticky; clogging pores and eventually resulting into unsightly pimples.

How do we solve the problem for oily skin? 

There's always a solution to every problem in the world. The trick is to follow the matte makeup technique and use highlighters in the right places - like the temple of the forehead, the bridge of the nose, the cheekbones etc re-creating the perfect glossy effect. Finally when all is done, spray some makeup setting spray and lock-in the look for hours to come.

Makeup tricks every girl should know 

* Make sure the mascara is not more than a month old. Fresh mascara glides better.

* Always cover dark circles with a concealer 1 to 2 shades lighter than skintone. 

* You can always create killer cheekbones by applying shimmer along the top.

* Clean, bold brow is attention grabbing. So comb it with clean mascara before shaping it with a soft brow pencil.

* A shimmery white eye pencil helps in brightening the eye when used on the waterline.

* Colour coding lips and cheeks always create a uniform look. So if you really want that natural look apply the same hue of lipstick on the lips as on the cheeks. 

* The best blending technique for foundations is to use the fingertips.

* Finally, always use a make-up setting spray to prevent runny and sticky makeup.
