The answer to dewy skin
A big name among influencers as well as celebrities, makeup artist Mausam Gandhi, gives us an amazing hack to achieve dewy skin. She says, “I have learnt a lot of makeup hacks, but the best one has to be applying a little bit of Vaseline Original Petroleum Jelly as a highlighter on my cheekbones. This gives me that beautiful natural glow and I find myself doing this pretty often.”
Additionally, “Do not powder! In this way, you aren’t mattifying your makeup, but just leaving it dewy.” Wow, that definitely sounds like a piece of advice we need to start taking seriously.
The art of contouring for a natural look
Most people avoid contouring their faces on a regular basis thinking that this will look extremely stark and unnatural. But famous Bollywood MUA, Shraddha Naik, has the best hack for this problem. She says, “Before applying foundation, go in with your contour powder and blush. Apply foundation over it. This will give you a natural look. However, remember that when you put foundation over contour powder and blush, don’t drag the foundation, simply dab it with a makeup sponge."
A hack for that no-makeup makeup look
Mitesh Rajani, another popular makeup artist from the industry echoes this hack and stresses on the fact that if you want a lit-from-within glow for a no-makeup makeup look, then it’s best to apply blush before foundation. When you do that, your cheeks will have just a flush of colour and your skin will look well-hydrated.
The secret to flawless makeup
But not all of us are into contouring and highlighting on an everyday basis. Some of us just want to ensure that our makeup looks clean and flawless on an everyday basis. MUA, Mita Vaswani has the perfect hack for this. She says, “There is only so much makeup can do. For your makeup to look flawless, you need to take care of your skin every single day. Please drink enough water, follow a skincare routine and obviously, eat right. This is my personal hack to all things beauty.”
