It has been horribly humid in Delhi these days but I have been able to figure a simple makeup routine that keeps my face fresh for hours at a stretch.Here you go 🙂
Makeup Primer : Whether I am wearing a liquid foundation or not, I apply a makeup primer. It helps in keeping my face shine free and fresh looking for long hours. And it definitely makes my makeup last long.
Compact : Totally cannot under estimate the power of compact. I apply my primer, then concealer and follow up with a compact either using a puff or a powder brush. I use at a couple of times a day to bring back life to my face.
Highlighting pens / light concealers : I rarely ever wear a foundation all over my face during the day but concealers are a must. My under eyes somehow look quite tired especially during this humid weather. These light weight concealers help me giving that woken up fresh look. They help in concealing the light blemishes and brightening the overall face.
Matte Blushes : Matte blushes look great during the day. They look natural . They don’t add the unnecessary shine to the face. They add that natural flush of color to your face without being over the top.
Matte Brown eyeshadow : Instant wake me up trick. Just apply a wash of matte brown eyeshadow (slightly lighter than your skin tone) all over your lid. Apply kohl and mascara. You’d notice the difference within seconds . 🙂
After 4-5 hours the humidity around makes my face look tired. So I carry a few tissues and a rose water bottle in my kit. I spray my face with rose water, wipe with tissues, apply moisturizer( if needed), double up lipstick as a blush, set everything with compact , apply lipstick. ta da! fresh face within 2-3 minutes. 🙂
and that’s the arm candy of the day 😉
