The festive season is fast approaching and we’re as excited as everybody else about the food, the parties and all the cheer that is to follow. Our constant endeavour is to look even better than the previous year and in order to do so we’re almost always in search of the right beauty products and makeup hacks to stun everyone. But not this season! We’ve shortlisted 7 makeup essentials that are ALL you’ll ever need to look your best…
1. The Hidden Truth
All the Diwali parties and celebrations of the wedding season can take its toll on our skin. Even out your skin tone and fake a flawless complexion with the right foundation. Make sure it matches your skintone perfectly by testing it along your jawline and not your wrist to make the right decision.POPxo Recommends: StudioWest Flawless Finish Makeup
2. That One Lippie
There’s something so glamorous, sexy and of course festive about red and pink lipstick. It’s a must in any girl’s makeup pouch and is perfect for bringing some cheer to your style. And if it lasts longer, it’s all the more better!POPxo Recommends: StudioWest Long Lasting Lipstick in Pure Crimson
3. The Nail Bar
Dress up your nails with some glitter to really help you dazzle. Shimmery nails are super apt for the festivities and are a no-fail way to help you shine. Make sure to add a clear top coat to help your nail paint last longer minus any unsightly chips.POPxo Recommends: StudioWest Maaya Vivid Nail Colour In Pink Champagne
4. The Right Blush
A pretty pink blush is that secret weapon for faking a gorgeous, natural-looking flush. A blush with a bit of shimmer is great for helping you glow this Diwali, but avoid it if you have acne-prone skin and stick to a matte blush. A deeper shade of burgundy looks better on duskier skin tones. POPxo Recommends: StudioWest Blush In Plum Shine
5. In The Shadows
Shades of gold, bronze and rust look fabulous on Indian skin tones. Just a single sweep of gold shadow should be enough for some subtle magic. Make sure to blend it well, you don’t want to look too OTT after all.POPxo Recommends: StudioWest Trios Eyeshadow in Goldmine Palette
6. Pressed Goodness
Pressed powder is a must carry in your purse to banish oiliness - you don’t want that shine to ruin a perfect look. Use it to keep your makeup in place and if you want a matte look.POPxo Recommends: StudioWest Flawless Finish Compact
7. Crossing Lines
No desi look is complete without defining your eyes for that charismatic touch. Now is the perfect time to put your eyeliner skills to use with pretty flicks or go all out with bold wings.
