Here's How To Balance Your Beauty Look With A Heavy Outfit, Feat. Shilpa And Aditi

We've been there. You have a small function or a family dinner to attend. While your outfit is heavy, bold makeup sounds like an overkill. You can't do a bare face because that would kill the vibe of the outfit. SO, what do you do?

I have been in this dilemma one too many times when the outfit or jewellery is super heavy and then I don't know what to do with my face but I know I don't want to do a full makeup look. Well, looks like Aditi Rao Hydari and Shilpa Shetty Kundra gave us the ideal solution to work a heavy outfit with a minimal (looking) face. 

Here are a few pointers to keep in mind when you have a heavy outfit and jewellery.

1. Going barefaced is NOT an option unless you want to look unwell! Go for a sheer coverage foundation and set your base with a translucent powder with shine pigment for a lit-from-within glow

2. Don't overdo the colour. Your outfit is anyway doing a lot of the talking, so make sure you don't put a lot of colour on your lids, cheeks and lips. 

3. Stick to neutral tones, a light brown smokey eye and a nude lip topped with gloss would be an ideal minimal makeup look. 

4. Highlighter and bronzer are your best friends. You need to add structure and dimension to your face, so contour with a bronzer and make sure there is enough highlighter to balance your outfit. 

5. If you want to add colour to your look, I think the best place to start would be your lips

6. Bold lashes and kohl would be a great way to give your face a lift and give your outfit an edge.
