Ditch filters, try these makeup tips to get you Instagram ready
With rapid improvements in technology, smartphones can now do what earlier could only be achieved with professional cameras. Yes, it is about photographs; now the smartphones have cameras that can capture the fine details of the face. Also, clicking images has become so common that they’re clicked at almost every little occasion and sometimes without any occasion too.
When it is time to get clicked, you often find out that you’re not ‘camera ready’. However, makeup artist Samaira Sandhu has a few suggestions to help you apply makeup in a way that you’re ‘ever-ready for the camera. Here are a few quick tips to offer that won’t take a lot of your time and still help you slay all day for that perfect gram-worthy picture.
Moisturise your face and hydrate it with your go-to moisturizer. Dry skin people must begin with this step and remember to give this enough attention.
Concealer on spot areas and translucent powder
Dab on a generous amount of concealer on your under-eye. Make sure you set it with a translucent powder. Setting the translucent powder helps your concealer stay put together and lends you a fresh look all day long. Samaira is all praises of the one by Estee Lauder,an investment that she believes is worth it. However, L.A. girl is also one of her favourite concealers and top ones from the drug store market.
Mascara for longer voluminous lashes
Trust mascara for those thicker, longer and voluminous eyelashes which help you look gorgeous in a few seconds. Samaira trusts the BADgal Bang by Benefit/ Huda Beauty. A budget alternative is the ones by Loreal/Maybelline.
Eyebrow gel for defined brows
Groomed brows are definitely the trend of the season! Define your brows using a clear brow gel that not only frames your face but also helps you look put together. Samaira opts for the one by Benefit. A budget alternative suggested by her is the ones by Nykaa.
Highlight and blush!
Highlight your cheekbones well for that extra glow and dab on some blush. She started off her career with some highlighter and blush by Maybelline and still goes back to them at times. However, she opts for the one by Becca now.
Emphasize on lips
In any photograph, lips are certainly looked at more closely which is all the more reason to have a well-defined lip line when it is time to get clicked. For defining the lip-line, you may use a lip pencil of the shade which makes your lip shine out! Lipsticks are absolutely one’s own choice and you can opt for your best pick. Samaira often prefers the lip gloss by Rimmel London.
#ProTip: Make sure to take care of those flyaways to look neat and put together. There, all set to slay in that photograph!
