With so many makeup choices and so much advice out there, it can take a while to figure out what really works for you to achieve great, flawless skin. Thousands of products, tips and tricks can feel a bit overwhelming. Once you do know what works for your skin the best, hold on to it, practice it. But before anything else, make sure you get the makeup basics right. And to help you find your way to flawless looking makeup, save these face makeup and beauty care tips that will come in handy 365 days.
Base your Base on the Season
What if we tell you that you don’t HAVE to apply foundation all over your face for a perfect base? Are you surprised? Don’t be! Going heavy on foundation all over your face, just to get your base right, is not the right way to go always. Because, salvaging cracked up foundation is truly a tough task, guys!
For us, a flawless BB Cream, a multi-purpose concealer, or even a good quality lightweight foundation does the trick. A tinted moisturizer is a good replacement too, for a foundation that lends a cakey finish.
What you really need to do is dab the right product, in the right amount, in the right places! Think blemishes, fine lines, dark circles, or wrinkles – blend well and you’re good to go! It’s light, it’s airy and it’s gorgeous. Remember, the goal is to make it look like it’s your skin, just better!
Highlight, Will be your Highlight Round the Year
Keep your highlighter handy, but find the right way of using your highlighter throughout the year! For example, during the harsh Indian summers, go super easy on the highlighter, since the humidity will do most of the job, and going overboard with the highlighter will only make your skin look oily, as opposed to adding the right amount of sheen to the high points of your face. Also, during summers, stick to a powder highlighter instead of a cream one.
Moving onto the season of chill: winters, of course, make your skin super dry. This is the time you can really bring the glow onto your face, and using a cream highlighter is simply ideal!
Showcase the Brow-Mance!
Happy arches, happy us! Gone are the days when brows just needed to be set using a pomade or a pencil. Once applied, these products were just too hard to blend well. But today, made up, overdone brows are a strict no-no! However when it comes to using a brow product all year round, ensure it’s waterproof!
Soak the Sun, But Ditch the Harm!
We all want to keep our skin protected from the harmful rays of the sun and all of us take some steps to avoid them. And SPF is a MUST throughout the year! Dodge the heavy, greasy feel of SPF-infused sunscreens and go for a radiant skin when you apply makeup that’s enriched with SPF. Before you think how substituting a sunscreen with makeup helps, let us tell you that the right amount of SPF factors in the makeup vital does the UV ray blocking properly and also adds radiance to your face.
