Top 10 Makeup Tips for Indian Summer ~ A Must Read
July 3, 2012 Makeup
Summer has arrived and it’s scorching heat all over the country. And the one thing that loses its beauty during summer is our face. In spite of applying a lot of sun-block /sunscreen lotion we always return home with a face tanned and dirty. Make-up doesn’t come into the picture as all the make-up we put in the morning, gets drenched with our sweat within no time and never gets to see the sunset. So, here a few make-up tips for the hot Indian summer that helps fight sun-tan and doesn’t look overdone too.
After coming out of the shower in the morning apply a good day cream (for pigmentation or fairness or whatever you use on a regular basis)
Apply kohl on your eyes. Do not smudge if your face is round and bigger than people who you are with. Keeping it simple does the trick. Women who have tiny eyes should definitely apply kajal. Smudged eyes look great on women having thing long faces.
20minutes before getting out in the sun apply the sunscreen lotion you have. A SPF of 45 or more is what you should look for. Do not apply anything on your face after applying sunscreen, not even water.
Then just 5minutes before getting out in the sun, apply a good compact all over your face and neck.
Compacts from Oriflame and Lakme usually come cheap and effective. This will prevent your face from sweating and the sunscreen from melting down.
Top up with a little talcum powder to make up for the unevenness in complexion on the face and to hide the scars and spots, if any.
Never forget to apply a good lip-gloss or lipstick on your lips before going out. This helps protect the lips from getting tanned. Revlon lipsticks are preferable. It’s better to have colored lip glosses rather than the transparent ones.
If you have smudged your eyes with kohl then applying blood red lipstick will look great on you. Do not match brown lipsticks with smudged eyes especially when you have large lips.
Women having thin lips should never forget to apply kohl on their eyes.
Always remember not to highlight both your eyes and lips, unless you want to look like a bozo. The trick is to highlight the eyes when you have thin lips. And to highlight the lips when you apply a little kajal only.
Never forget to take the compact, lip gloss/lipstick and kajal in your bag as you go.
And lastly, apply a little mascara on your eyelashes before you go to get that perfect look, simple yet beautiful, for your office or college or for hanging out with friends in the day.
Apply these 10 simple tips in the summer mornings and save yourself from getting tanned and look perfect for the rest of the day. Enjoy the summer and bid adieu to summer hassles.
