Oh yes, it is that time of the year again! The time when everyone's in a festive spirit, decorating their houses with the brightest lights and rangolis, shopping for naaye kapde and giving each other gifts; Diwali is truly magical. Of course, things are a little different this year due to the global pandemic with at-home celebrations and social distancing. Nevertheless, it is time to celebrate and get your glow on! So while you have your #OOTD sorted, your beauty game too needs to be strong. Here are some last-minute beauty tips that'll help you fake that glow.
Faking that festive glow is a lot easier than you think! If you want to glow as bright as a diya, then follow these easy tips.
Exfoliating your body from H2T is one way to remove all traces of pollution and dirt from your skin. Use a gentle scrub on your face to thoroughly clean the pores and a body scrub on the rest of your body.
Once you're squeaky clean, make sure to moisturize your face and body.
#POPxoTip: If you really want your face to glow to the Gods, ditch your boring moisturizer for an illuminating one instead!
Using a highlighter on the high points of your face such as your cheekbones, cupids bow, inner corner of your eyes and even on the tip of your nose is a great way to shine bright like a diamond. Now, imagine exuding that same kinda glow from your body. Use a body highlighter to add that extra glow to your overall look!
When I think of Diwali, I think about sparkling makeup and the festive season is perfect to go all out with your makeup look. Think metallic eyeshadows, glitter eyeliners and hi-shine glossy lips. In fact, do not shy away from using loose glitter to elevate your makeup game! However, keep in mind that you're only doing up one feature in glitter... an all-over sparkling look is best left to the professionals.
This festive season, do not forget about your hair! Use a conditioning hair mask a day before and we bet your hair is going to be on its best behaviour. Regular hair masks also help make your mane stronger, healthier and control the everyday damage caused by pollution and dirt.
Remember, it is always better to take care of your skin rather than covering it up in layers of makeup! Do not get lazy and sleep with your makeup on or skip your CTM routine. Cleansing, Toning, Moisturising is essential and so is using a sheet mask or a face pack every now and then. Face oils and serums too should make an appearance in your skincare regimen.
