  • Moisturize your face


Moisturizers deserve accolades for their efficiency in making the skin feel supple and hydrated. It also aids in the make-up last longer. There is an array of moisturizers available in the market for differing skin types. The L’Oreal Paris Hydrafresh Anti-Shine hydrating and mattifying Icy Gel is ideal for oily skin while the Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturizer would suit normal to dry skin as well as combination skin.

  • Apply a BB cream


The use of a foundation would be recommended only if your skin has been suffering with acne issues. The BB cream would take care of reducing the visibility of blemishes and smoothen out the texture of your skin. Foundations provide better coverage than BB creams but the latter is recommended for individuals whose skin is in a good condition and is also advisable for casual use.  The Maybelline BB cream is one of the most sought after products which is exceptionally affordable and cost-effective.

  •  ‘Tiranga’ eye make-up


Incorporate colours of the Indian flag in your eye make-up. Draw a line above your upper lash-line with an orange or saffron eye-liner. Line your lower as well as upper water line with a green eye-pencil while smoking out the lower lash-line with a blue eye shadow. The Lakme Eye-Conic pencil in royal green would efficiently serve your purpose to apply on the lower lash line. Use the Nyx Smokey Eye Palette to smoke out the lower lash line. The Nyx Vivid Brights liner range offers a beautiful orange shade which can be used as the eye-liner. Coat your lashes with a generous amount of mascara.
