Step By Step Tutorial for Traditional Diwali Makeup
Like any other art form, makeup has its own techniques and methods. Once you have mastered the basic methods, you can start experimenting with different styles and techniques. It is time to bring out your favorite makeup products, sit in front of the mirror and just follow the steps for Simple traditional Diwali makeup.
Step 1: Pre-makeup routine
We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to start with a clean and moisturized base. Before putting anything on your face, wash your face with a mild cleanser, apply an alcohol-free toner. Don’t forget to checkout the Guide to Indian Skin Tone and then a thick layer of moisturizer. If you are attending a day event, then apply sunscreen as well. Starting with a hydrated face gives you an inner glow and lets your makeup sit better on your skin.
Step 2: Prime your face
Once you have applied moisturizer, you are ready to begin your Traditional Diwali Makeup. Bring out a primer and use it with your fingers. Primer has silicon that blurs the appearance of large pores and provides a smoother canvas to work on. Primers usually come in two variants- matte and dewy. Pick whichever you like.
Step 3: Apply foundation and concealer
If you feel like you can achieve a Traditional Diwali Makeup Look without using foundation, then, by all means, skip this step. However, if you want to apply foundation, ensure it's in the right shade. Go for a light foundation instead of a heavy one. Foundations with mouse consistency will also work.
Pick a concealer with medium to high coverage and apply it on your problem areas around the eyes, between the brows, the bridge of your nose, and the brow bone. Blend either with your fingers, brush or with a beauty blender.
Step 4: It's all about the eyes
Fill in your brows with a brow pencil. If you have sparse eyebrows, use an eyebrow gel and gently fill in the gaps. Apply eyeshadow primer on your eyelids.
