Tips for a flawless look

Before you sweep on that gorgeous cat eye and blot the statement colour onto your lips, you have to prep your face. While it’s not the most exciting part of your pampering routine, applying your base makeup is the best way to smooth out blemishes and even out your overall appearance so that your face is fully primed for the fun stuff — in other words, it’s necessary.


All you need to achieve this dream is the right combination of products and a little technique fixes to handle this common beauty woe. Follow this makeup regimen to fix your face.


1. Prepare the base: I cannot stress enough on the use of a primer. The primer is a smartly devised trick sworn by every makeup expert for creating a smooth and lasting base for makeup. Whether you love wearing a full makeup or keep it simple with a fresh glowy face and a lip balm, a primer is your first weapon to fix your the touchup woes. An ideal primer will hydrate your skin and create a superior canvas for foundation and other products to be used. It keeps you sweat free and improves the staying power of the makeup. Try Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch. Its smooth cream like formulation creates a smooth base for foundation and leaves you with a fresh poreless glow! You can wear it alone or under a foundation.


2. Pick foundation wisely: Choose a liquid foundation with silicone. Avoid luminous or matte ones (they make the skin appear either too moist or too flat to be natural), and instead look for the words "lightweight," "sheer," or "invisible." Some lightweight foundations won't mask every flaw, though.


3. Create fuller lips: Apply a lip balm then create an outline with a lip liner of same shade as of the lipstick. Start applying lipstick from the inner side of the lip to outwards. Blot slightly against a tissue paper. Coat a layer of powder lightly and again apply the second coat. This tip will sure lengthen the stay of tint on your lips.
