COLOUR CORRECTOR IS A MUST
Colour correctors come in a range of colors — orange, green, peach, yellow, and
lavender — and can hide uneven skin tone, acne, dark circles and pigmentation. Spot-conceal
blemishes with a concealer and use a translucent powder to set it.
A SATIN-FINISH FOUNDATION
Apply a foundation that offers medium to full coverage but feels lightweight on the skin and blend it well. A dewy foundation will give the face a more natural and radiant glow.
PRIME IT RIGHT
Your skin and the makeup you put on are separated by the primer. Use a non-greasy, lightweight mattifying primer
for the foundation to set well.
HIGHLIGHTER FOR HEALTHY GLOW ON FACE
Invest in a good cheek tint. Highlighter is the easiest way to give your skin a healthy glow. Pat on a tiny bit of a peach-toned bronzer around the edges of your face and cheeks to give it a little extra depth.
NUDE EYES & BRIGHT LIPS
Apply a nude eyeshadow just in the crease of the eyes and a brown-toned lip gloss to complete your dewy look.
MUST HAVE IN YOUR MAKEUP KIT
Sunscreen with SPF 30 and above
Concealer to even out the skin tone
Loose powder to set the makeup
TIPS FOR THE PERFECT NO-MAKEUP LOOK
Use your fingertips instead of brushes
Apply foundation with a slightly damp sponge
Use subtle hints of a shiny, creme-based eyeshadow on the eyelids
Use a peach, beige or brown eyeshadow, mascara and a gloss to complete the basic look. For the no-makeup makeup look, it’s crucial to choose a foundation shade that complements the skin tone and is neither too light nor too dark. Line the eyelid with a thin stroke of kohl and add a matte eyeshadow. Top it with mascara, a subtle blush and lip gloss.

I mix sunscreen and foundation for a dewy look
I moisturise and use a Vitamin C serum before applying makeup. I also hydrate my skin so that the makeup settles well on my face. I mix my foundation with sunscreen and let it settle before applying blush. Pink or cherry lip tint is a must and a thick layer of mascara adds to the look. I suggest skipping the setting spray when opting for a dewy look.I have acne-prone skin, so I also take off makeup diligently.
