How to get the look


Step 1: For Luminous Base


To rock a glowy, dewy base all you need to do is give your face a 2-minute massage with your go-to creamy moisturiser. Then, apply a layer of primer to ace a luminous base. Alternatively, mixing a few drops of this serum with your foundation or using a serum-infused foundation will also do the trick. Once done with the foundation, apply a creamy concealer to cover any uneven patches, then dab setting powder only on areas where you tend to get oily a tapered brush to retain max glow.


Step 2: To Nail That Gossamer Eyeshadow


Smooth on an eye primer to prep those lids for makeup. Then apply a rusty nude eyeshadow all over your eyelids and crease. Next, use a clean blending brush to diffuse the edges. Take the same shade on a precise brush and run it along your lower lash line and then apply some glitter to the centre of your eye lids. 


Step 3: Smoke It Out


Grab your go-to kohl or pencil eyeliner and then trace the winged eyeliner and gently smoke it out to add a little more drama. Don’t forget to apply the same on the lower lash line and smudge it out to create a smokey effect.

Step 4: For Flushed Cheeks

Dap a few dots of peach blush that matches the eyeshadow tone on the apple of your cheeks and blend it away. Apply a liquid highlighter on the high point of your face including your cheekbones and the bridge of your nose.

Step 5: To Nail A Fuller Flutter

Curl your lashes and coat them with a volumising mascara. Alternatively, you can also go for falsies of your choice.

How to get the look

Step 1: For A Soft-Focus Base: 

The key here is to use a few soft-focus and luminous products in conjunction with your skin-perfecting routine. We recommend using a luminescent moisturiser on your skin that gives it a hefty dose of hydration. Then follow it up with a primer to get a silky-smooth canvas and diffuse the appearance of skin texture and fine lines giving a blurred finish. Wait for at least 5 to 10 minutes to ensure the products really sink into your skin and then proceed with your foundation and concealer.

Step 2: To Ace Silver Eye Makeup

Apply a brown-nude matte eyeshadow on the outer crease of your eyes to define the sockets. Then, take a darker shade of brown and apply it slightly below the light brown shade. Blend the two together using a clean fluffy brush. This will help in giving depth to your eyes. Next, apply a silver eyeshadow all over your lids and grab a kohl eyeliner to apply liner on the upper lash line and smoke it out using a fluffy brush.

Step 3: She Came. She Contoured. 

Use a powder blush to impart a rosy aesthetic to your cheeks. Then, use a contour to give your face a more sculpted look.

Step 4: Nail That Pout

Apply a poppy pink lipstick to complete the look.

How To Get The Look

Step 1: For that picture-perfect base:

A good base will set the rest of the makeup product up for success. First, prep your skin with a glow-boosting moisturiser. Then, buff a little layer of an illuminating serum-infused primer to retain max glow. Make sure you don’t forget the neck area. Use a damp sponge for your foundation to get a gorgeous finish. Dot and blend concealer under the eyes and on any scars or blemishes you wish to cover.

Step 2: Smoke It Out

Smooth the eye primer across the lids and let it set. Next, you can take a little bit of matte brown colour to just blend on the outer corner of the eye and then apply some dark brown or black shadow on the lids. Grab a black kohl and apply it on the lower lash line as well as the upper lash line. Then, take some more brown eyeshadow on a precise eyeshadow brush to smoke out the kohl on the lower lash line. To finish the eye, coot the lashes with mascara and stick on a pair of fluttery false eyelashes.

Step 3: For That IG-Worthy Contour

Add warmth to your face by using a bronzing powder across the temples, hairline and jawline, and sculpt the face by applying the cream contour along the hollows of your cheeks. Then, pop an illuminating blush on the apple of your cheeks.

Step 4: Glossy Pout FTW!

Just prep your lips, focus the liner that’s 2 to 3 shades darker on the outer corner of your lips before lightly feathering it around the rest of the mouth. Fill it in with a lip gloss in a lighter hue. All you need is a great liner-lipstick duo to master this old school lip look.
