Picture this. You've spent hours perfecting your Diwali makeup - the cat-eye, the contouring, the bold lip, basically the whole ordeal. You walk in looking like a 10, and 2 hours and 5 jalebis down, you've eaten half your lipstick and your previously smokey eyes now resemble dangerously close to a panda's. In other words, a disaster.
Lucky for you, we're here to salvage the situation and give you some insider tips on how to keep your hours-worth of hard work budge-proof, smudge-proof and ultra long-lasting.
OIL-FREE = SWEAT-FREE
Ever heard of moisturizers that respond to 'over-day ageing'? These potions combat the fluctuations in hydration levels and sebum production through the day that cause your skin to look dull and lifeless. But opt for an oil-free one though.
Water-proof is the new gen of makeup that'll have us watching tear-jerkers all night long and still stay put. What more could a girl ask for?
POWER TO THE POWDER
Kylie Jenner does it, so do we. Setting your base with powder not only promises longevity, but a gentle sweep under your eyes also keeps your bags at bay.
SAY YES TO SETTING SPRAY
The name says it all. Invest in a really good one and a single spritz can save you from a long night of touch-ups. Make sure this is the last step of your routine before heading out.
PREP YOUR SKIN
Exfoliate. Exfoliate. Exfoliate. We can't stress this enough because this magic step makes all the difference to your skin. Why? Because the smoother the surface, the more product you can layer on. Make sure to slough away dead surface cells with a good exfoliator.
IT'S PRIME TIME
There's no bigger sin in the beauty world than ditching the primer in your routine. Not only do these holy-grail products 'seal in' the moisturizer, but they also provide a perfectly smooth canvas for your base. #ProTip: Avoid creasing of your eye shadow with a special eye primer.
Building your makeup in light layers not only looks more natural, but also ensures long-lasting stay. This crucial step works for the almighty 3 - the base, the eyes, and the lips.
DON'T SKIP THE LINER
The not-so-secret secret to having a full pout all-party long ? The lip liner. This lip-mapping tool helps sandwich your lipstick so that your color doesn't bleed or smudge even after 2 glasses of chardonnay. #ProTip: After lining your lips and filling in the color, finish with another coat of pencil to set it.
