They say that eyes are the windows to your soul. In this third part series of make up mistakes and tips for festivity, Zahabia shares how you can keep your peepers bright and shiny through the festivities. In case you missed out the earlier post, you can check them here and second part here.
Eyelashes – Mascara is your saviour, Not many people are aware of the different kind of mascaras available for different needs in the market . You have waterproof, smudgeproof, coloured, clear, plumping, lengthening and the list goes on. Analyze your eyelashes and see if you have the right product. Mascara, when not applied properly can result in poor, clumpy and smudged looking eyelashes and that’s not what you want. Mascara gives your eyes the illusion of making them look bigger and more dramatic. And if you have thin scanty eyelashes don’t be afraid to put on fake eyelashes, these are easily available in the market and can be glued on to your own eyelashes with an eye safe glue. Ask your make up artist about these.
Eyebrows – Make sure your eyebrows are well tweezed and shaped, you can opt for different kind of shapes and sizes depending on your face structure .Once you have that right , then comes in the filling of your eyebrows . Please don’t use black to fill in your eyebrows, black is a strong color this can make your face look too sharp as the contrast level is high. Use a dark brown instead as its closer to the Indian skin tone and it will surprise you with how they look almost like your natural eyebrows only enhanced and perfect ! Another handy tip is use a brow brush for application for evenly blended and well shaped eyebrows.
And now that the make up is all done, don’t forget this one last tip!
Sleeping with your make up – One of the most common makeup mistakes is the temptation to go to sleep without washing off all that Make up. Sleeping with your makeup on will only bring on more skin related problems (i.e. acne). Tons of makeup brands sell makeup cleansers, which helps remove most of your makeup, but it never hurts to wash your face with warm water and a soft cleanser. Gently dry your face with a clean towel and apply a cream intended for sleepwear. Remember that your skin needs to breath after all that layering of make up.
