Need a quick makeup master class before the festivities begin? We suggest you keep this article handy as Cherag Bambboat, veteran makeup artist and founder, Magical Makeover Academy answers 5 questions about makeup this season.
What are the latest colour trends in makeup this season?
The latest colour trend for makeup is everything that has a little bit of rose quartz in it. Think colours like soft baby pink or lavender. For a night out, make use of colours like dark copper and blue.
What are the must-try trends for the festive season?
There’s not a very big differentiation from the regular festive trends. Diwali is all about sparkle, glow and glitter. You can either decide to do a metallic gold eye or glossy eye or even a nude eye with a sprinkle of glitter on it.
What’s the one makeup must-have for every woman this season?
Every woman should have blonding powder. Normal powder contains talc which can make your face look cakey. Blonding powder is talc free and will give you a beautiful, natural finish.
What are the different makeup looks that can be tried?
Use a lot of colour! Instead of the regular black smoky eye, try blue, green or even purple smoky eyes. Strobing which highlights a particular feature is very in. You can even try the two-toned lip by combining two shades of the same colour. Use light pink combined with dark pink or dark maroon with an orange-red maroon.
What are the 3 makeup products that you swear by?
1. I love the Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation. It is absolutely sweat and water proof and provides good coverage.
2. Benefit Porefessional Face Primer helps filling pores and lines temporarily with optical diffusion. It has a micro sponge which reduces the appearance of pores and makes the skin look beautiful and smooth.
3. Invest in a good makeup fixing spray to prevent patchy or sweaty makeup.
