Tip #1: Exfoliate 2-3 times a week
One of the easiest things you can do to ensure you get rid of all the dirt and grime that may have been living rent-free on your face, exfoliation is a simple and easy way to get clear, glowing skin. It removes the top layer of dead skin cells and grime to reveal brighter, smoother skin underneath. Exfoliate 2-3 times a week to make sure your skin looks fresh and healthy, and you'll be good to go!

Tip #2: Use an illuminating moisturiser
If you want to look gorgeous with minimal effort, you need to turn up the glow. Using a moisturiser that doubles up as a highlighter can instantly perk up your face, and give you that oh-so-desirable glow. You can use it on its own or mix a few drops with your foundation too.

Tip #3: Play with your eye makeup
Okay, so maybe you're not in the mood for full-face glam, but upping the ante for your eye makeup can ensure that no one notices. Whether you have a penchant for kohl-rimmed eyes, or you've been dying to experiment with some graphic liner, make sure that your eye makeup looks on fleek at all times!

Tip #4: Sheet masks FTW!
Need a quick pick-me-up for your face? Turn to sheet masks just before a major event, and simply put one on for 15 minutes. Once you've taken it off, you'll reveal clear, glowing skin that's radiant and luminous, just in time for your festivities to commence!

Tip #5: Perk up your pout
There's nothing like a bold red lip to get you in the mood for the festive season. Whether you're going bare-faced or full-on glam, a red lip is just what you need to add that extra oomph to your Diwali 2021 makeup. Simply swipe on a coat, and you'll instantly feel more festive too!

Tip #6: Don’t sleep with makeup on
Hold up! Don't even think for a second that your festive beauty tips end with makeup. Sleeping with makeup on can end up clogging the pores, leaving you dealing nasty zits the next day. Simply turn to micellar water to make sure every inch of your face is washed clean before you turn in for the night.
