Diwali's all about glitz, glimmer, shine, sparkle and glamour. Trade in the vampire lip for Pat McGrath's glitter fever. Swap the gloomy grey muted tones of monsoon with bold, bright iridescent shades of electric blue, sizzling red and neon pink. It's that time of year when a dash of gold on the eyelids or fingertips speaks volumes and less is never more! But with an unending number of weddings to attend, and juggling between family festivities and parties with friends, there's never enough time to be prepared. Our advice? Pack these top picks for the best-photo finish; since Diwali simply means being Insta-Ready in a jiffy!
Vaguely recall that art lesson on complementary colors in school? No? Dig deeper. The basic theory is that complementary colours, that is, hues opposite each other on the wheel neutralize one another. Ditch redness with L.A. Girl's Pro Conceal HD
in Green, cover up dark circles with Orange and throw on some Purple for pale skin. Lightly dab concealer in a shade slightly lighter than your skin tone for an absolutely spotless, goddess-like face.
Find your Match
Luminous skin begins from within. And if not, blend to ace your base. Dab on Colorbar's Perfect Match Foundation
for an ultra-light, non-greasy, radiant face, infused with micro-matching technology to melt onto any skin tone. Listen up oily pupils, use a product formulated with a mattifying water base and dry beauties ultra-hydrate with a drop or two of your daily moisturizer.
Contour like a Pro
First there was the classic contour. Then, it became so last season
and resurrected itself as the clown contour. But that trend didn't last either, resulting into the bronzed genius we now call strobing! But since a perfect, natural dewy look is the need of the hour, create depth by adding subtle definition. Brush on Makeup Revolution's Duo Face Sculpt
for a sun-kissed glow!
Pucker up for the perfect pout! Matte or iridescent, play it dramatic with a shimmering lip. Chambor Extreme Matte Long Wear Lip Colour
offers the best of both worlds with the intense rich colour of a lipstick, enhanced by a satin smooth matte finish.
