Here's how to get ready this wedding season!

1. A clear canvas before the foundation goes on! Start by using a primer. You can use the Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser. Apply and use a dabbing motion to blend it well. You can even try Essence Cosmetic's All About Matt Oil Control Base: it does a fine job of minimising the pores and helps to matify the face. On the plus side it is available at economical rates.

2.  For the foundation, you again want to use a matte formula. Look for a water based foundation. Oil based formulas tend to attract dirt and slide off easily.  Here are Makeup Maestro Amina Raja's Top Ten tips for a flawless foundation application. 


3. Follow with a concealer that is a shade lighter than your skin tone.
Makeup Meastro Amina Raja says:
Make sure that your concealer is a shade lighter than your skin tone. Too light and it will make your skin look ashy and too dark, the purpose of a concealer is lost. Also remember to conceal the top of your lids as well for an even tone. A mini baby blender works best for blending the concealer. Another good option is your fingers. The heat from your body melts the makeup and helps it to blend easily.

4. Follow with a pressed powder to help set your makeup. Sway, swirl and party all night long without your makeup budging!


5. For a more sculpted and chiselled look, don't forget to contour your face. Powder contours are easy to blend than cream formulas. But depending on your skin type, crème contouring is a favourable option for dry skins and powder works well for oily skins. Luscious Contour Kits are one of the best options for our local skin tones.

6. Trying to make a statement! Nothing better than a smokey eye! Use any shade of your choice and pack in in your lid. Use a darker shade in the crease and highlight the inner lid with a pale shimmer eyeshadow.

7. The nest step is to apply the liner. Use a formula that is longlasting, budge proof and intense!

8. For the mascara try Maybelline's Falsies Pushup Drama Mascara
These are some of the best drugstore mascaras!

9. Next fill in your brows. We love to use Luscious Cosmetics Brow Luxe Designer Pencil. It is the dupe to Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer. Always use a brow pencil in a shade tad lighter than your actual brows for the most natural looking results.

10. For the most ethereal look, use a shimmery blush formula. We love to use MM Makeup's Ethereal Glow! One that can act as a blush and highlighter both, this will add a bit of grace and glow to any look- Be it a day look where you need a dash of color on your cheek or need definition for a shimmery night out.
Masarrat Misbah Makeup's Ethereal Glow comes in a matte black plastic packaging with a built in mirror.There are 3 different shades to choose from, namely Illuminous, Radiance and Radiant Pink.

11.For the Va Va Voom results off with a red lipstick off your choice. If you are feeble of heart, choose a red with pink, orange or maroon undertones!


12. For fresh make up looks that last, this one is a great alternative to the all the expensive setting sprays out there. Don't forget to pick the Matte setting spray for a shine free look if you suffer from oily skin. This is my best friend during our crazy summers.
