Top 5 Makeup Tips That Will Make Your Life Simpler
If you’re packing light, consider only carrying the beauty products mentioned below. Yes, really, they’re all that you need! Here are 5 useful tips on how to use them to your benefit.
1. Always Consider The Weather Before Applying Makeup
If the wedding is during the summer, the weather will be hot and dry. Consider using oil-free products during this time. Also, keep face wipes in your purse in case the heat gets to you. And remember, while sea breeze is cool, it’s also extremely drying. Moisturise!
2. Apply Your Favourite Foundation Using A Sponge Or Brush
No matter what, never use your fingers to apply foundation. Always use a sponge or brush. It’s not only hygienic but also blends the foundation evenly into your skin, giving it a dewy touch. Also, in order to avoid dealing with a cakey face on the big day, make sure to apply the foundation before using a concealer. The concealer helps with minor touch-ups and gives your skin a radiant glow.
3. Don’t Forget Your Eyebrow Pencil!
It’s the small touch-ups that matter in the end. Don’t you agree, ladies? That’s why you shouldn’t forget to pack your eyebrow pencil. It helps fill in your eyebrow, which highlights all your features. When picking one, choose one shade lighter than your natural eyebrow colour. It always does the trick!
4. Lip Gloss To The Rescue!
In order to avoid dry and chapped lips during the wedding, apply a coat of lip gloss before applying lipstick. Then, use a lip pencil to define your lips so that the colour stays intact and lasts for a longer time. You’re welcome!
5. Use Your Blush As An Eye-Shadow
Yes ladies, did you know that you could use your blush as an eyeshadow? We love double duty products! Shades of pink, bronze, greys and nudes are our favourite! Always focus on the lids and try to go higher than your crease.
Easy Styling Tips You’ll Thank Us For
1. Always Carry A Spare Pair Of Shoes
When you’re going for a destination wedding, it’s better to go super prepared. Your choice of shoe depends on the location. That’s why it’s important to carry an extra pair of comfy shoes in your bag, just in case.
2. Use A Hair Straightener To Fix Wrinkles
Your hair straightener is perfect for vanishing last minute wrinkles from your clothes. There’s absolutely no need to carry an iron to remove minor wrinkles when you have your trusty hair straighter at your disposal!
3. The Only Saree Hack(s) You’ll Ever Need!
If you’re wearing a saree to the wedding, the way you drape it is the most important part of it all. Pin the pallu to the blouse and bra strap so that it doesn’t fall off and the strap doesn’t show. To stop the pleats from opening, pin them to the petticoat from inside.
4. No More Bra Problems!
Now, when you’re sporting a backless dress or blouse, you don’t really have to worry about your bra straps sticking out. You don’t need a stick-on bra or a multi-way bra - get hold of an old bra pad and stitch it to the fabric. Voila! You’re done.
