Your makeup can be a game-changer when it comes to your overall look. Good makeup seamlessly blends with a stylish outfit. For some, it's a way of self-expression whereas, for others, it serves as a medium to experiment and be creative. Your makeup choices and products also change with time or season. With spring almost here, it is time for weddings and social gatherings and we surely need our makeup on point too. While the choice of makeup is different for everyone, here's something to help you get the basics right because no one wants to deal with last time hassles and we have got you covered!
1. Prep Your Skin Right
Prepping your skin right is the thumb rule before you start your makeup. Moisturise your skin with a decent amount of moisturiser that suits you. You can even use some massaging techniques to ensure deep moisturisation and hydration. Right after this, you can go for a good primer. These days, there are primers with SPF that not only set the base of your skin but also provide sun protection and with a temperature rise, this could be a great choice.
2. Go For Dewy Makeup
Thanks to celebrities like actress Disha Patani, we are truly in awe of the dewy finish. Dewy makeup has been on our radar and Spring seems like a perfect time to ace it. Opt for a hydrating, lightweight foundation that will keep your skin glowing and add a subtle sheen to your skin. Don't forget to add that blush, highlighter and gloss for a natural touch.
3. Pink Makeup
A dash of pink is always a good idea, even in makeup as well. Pink makeup looks chic and there is no doubt it and it goes so well with Spring fits. You can add a pink shade to your eyelids or even lips. When will you wear pink makeup if not in the spring season?
4. Red Lipstick
Beauty fanatics swear by a good red lipstick. Sometimes, when you don't want to add too much makeup, just stick to a reliable red lipstick to stand out from the rest. It has the power to amp up your entire look in no time. The best way to appear fresh in red lipstick is to opt for bare-minimum makeup and let that colour pop do the talking!
5. Be Selective With Contouring
Contouring has always been a very optional part of the routine, varying from individual to individual. You can go for it while heading out to a party or a fancy brunch. If you want to keep things minimal and natural, ditch contouring. Instead, you can opt for bronzer for your cheeks to add colour and subtle structure to your face. Avoid a bright blush and instead, go for a tone that blends seamlessly with the bronzer.
6. Experiment With Eye Makeup
Your eye makeup can literally do all the talking if done right. While you might like to keep it to the bare minimum but if you are someone who doesn't hesitate to experiment, we would say go all peppy with colourful sleek liners or vibrant eye shadows to complement the Spring season. You can even create beautiful sunset eyes by opting for a rustic brown, red and yellow tone and blending them with the right technique.
7. Setting Spray
Everyone wants their makeup to stay for a long time. If you also wish the same, a setting spray is an ideal way to finish your makeup look. Irrespective of whatever makeup you have applied, just set it all in the end with the help of a setting spray.
We hope these tips will come in handy whenever you do your makeup next time!
