Start with a hydrated canvas
 

Start with a hydrated canvas

Once you’ve washed your face with a cleanser that suits your skin type, make sure you moisturise your skin. How your foundation/base sits on your skin is largely dependent on the smoothness of your skin. Know that if you have oily skin, your makeup will slide away and if you have dry skin, your makeup will flake off. An effective makeup tip for both these problems is a moisturiser that will leave your skin hydrated. Since we’re talking about college fests in winters, make sure you get your hands on the Fair & Lovely Winter Fairness Cream. This one contains advanced Multi Vitamins & Active Moisturisers that intensely moisturise the skin to keep dryness at bay.

You’re still in college so heavy makeup like overtly thick foundations are too extra for you. Our makeup tip for you would be to go for a lightweight base that works in multiple ways. We suggest relying on the Fair & Lovely BB Cream. It lends your skin a matte feel so it will stay put when you’re running around at the fests. Besides, it also covers dark spots and blemishes along with lending you a fairer look. Fuss-free and lightweight—this product is just what your tired skin needs for a college fest.

Always seal with a compact
 

Always seal with a compact

A compact is your one-stop solution to sealing your base makeup. So make sure you always apply compact or powder once you’re done applying the BB Cream. Apply a little extra on your T-zone in case you tend to get extra oily on that area of your face. Our makeup tip for you would be to go with the Lakmé 9to5 Flawless Matte Complexion Compact that’ll work beautifully to give you an even finish. Plus, it contains Vitamin E that’s a blessing for the skin!

Use matte lipsticks

When you’re attending an event and running errands, you need your lipstick to stay in place all through. Our makeup tip for you would be to go for a matte lipstick because glossy or semi-matte lipstick might have shift in the middle of the day. We suggest going with the Lakmé Enrich Matte Lip Crayons that are long lasting and super pigmented. Choose a shade that goes well with your outfit and you’re so sorted!

Wet your brushes
 

Wet your brushes

If you’re planning on wearing a subtle eyeshadow or blush make sure you spray just a wee bit of water on your brushes and then pick up powder product from the palettes because the water will help your blush or eyeshadow stay in place for longer hours. But make sure you don’t spray too much water on your brush because you don’t want things to get messy.
