Glow like a star with essentials
Make up can make any look glamorous. Achieve the perfect look with simple steps for this festive season
The festive season calls for unique looks for every occasion. In addition to chic ethnic outfits, a glamorous make up look will define your beauty in the best way possible.
Experts lists some ways to look perfect this festive season:
Bronzer: Bronzers are available in different shades. Opt for the one that matches your skin tone. A bronzer helps in creating an even skin tone and highlights the natural shadows on the face, giving it a more defined and angular appearance. Achieve the perfect look with baked, mineralised bronzers. If applied correctly it can help create a sun-kissed day or a glamorous night look.
Shimmery or metallic eye-shadows: Such eye shadow not only luminates, but also drives attention towards the eyes. Use light colours such as golden bronze, pink shimmers for a delicate shine apt for day wear or opt for brighter and darker colours like pops of green, blue and purple for a bolder evening look.
Use beige eye shadow as base on your eyelids to make bright, vibrant colours stand out. One can also use eye shadow instead of an eyeliner for a soft, smudged liner look. Accentuate your eyes further with mascara and eyeliner to finish the look.
Glossy lipstick: Glossy lips are back in vogue. Opt for high gloss lip colours or lip oils in bright reds, hot pinks, crimson and shades of orange for the envious pout. Use a lip liner for better definition. You can also dab some gold dust or illuminator at the center of the lip for additional lustre. Further, If you prefer a bold look, go for a smokey eye and pair it up with bright glossy lips
The radiant highlighter: Create make-up looks with the glamorous glow this festive season. A highlighter improves one's natural radiance adding a gorgeous finishing touch to your festive look. The highlighter base should preferably match the base of the foundation.
"Try Violet, Green and Yellow colours – that are not usually on your makeup palette for daily application but these darker shades would work wonders for a festive look! It's best to apply these colours on your eyes – winged or smokey look is a sure shot to get it right."
"If you're a pro with handling the make-up brush, you can try out a few geometrical patterns on your eyelids for a more dramatic appearance.
Stick to a nude palette for your face and lips and allow your eyes to do the talking with these shades. Play up the look with matching accessories to stand out in a crowd," experts note.
