Katrina Kaif is Officially gorgeous
Being smartly turned out is essential for a working professional. And a career girl with slick make-up moves is destined to be a hit! ‘Subtle’ is the term to keep in mind when it comes to the ‘day look’ in office. That means, a big ‘no’ to loud blush, eyeliner in bright hues, or eyeshadow to match. Stick to grey or brown eyeliner. Use lip shades in nudes, light pinks, peaches and oranges. “Mineral Foundation will give the skin a beautiful finish. One can go in for long-lasting lip colours,” says Lippi Lal, Consultant for Maxfactor and Bourjois Paris. In terms of eye make-up, experts recommend that even eyeliner and a mascara should do the trick, instead of using eye shadow. “Try to keep it subtle by using an eyeliner to complete the eyes,” recommends Charmaine Rao, make-up expert, YSL.
Products used for the ‘day look’ can also be used for post-work partying (with a few additions) As far as party make-up goes, it should be simple yet glamorous. “A mascara in a different colour can be a great product for the evening. A hint of glitter to the eyebrows or shoulder looks sexy. A shimmer powder can also be used to add sheen to your appearance,” says Lippi.
For the day, make-up expert Salimah Haji recommends a C-T-M routine followed by tinted moisturiser, colourless loose powder, mascara and a neutral lipstick or gloss. For the night, she says, “Use eyeliner and mascara. Add blush to your cheeks and more colour to lips. A highlighter can be used under the eyebrows and on parts of the face that catch the light (nose bridge, forehead, chin, jawline and cheekbones.”
“When it’s partytime, focus on creating smoky eyes using violets and electric blues. Lips should be minimalistic in shades of orange, coral and peach,” Meeta Awatramani, Training Manager, Clarins concludes.
