Ready and Gorgeous

Have you got late for a party or a function because you took hours to get ready?
Are you being teased for taking spending longer hours before the mirror?
Does your company tell you the wrong timings of a wedding because you take too long to get ready?

This has become a major issue as most of the time goes in choosing outfits and matching makeup and hairstyle with it. I won't be able to help with the hairstyle but I can talk about easy party fixes and makeup that goes a long way when you are attending gatherings.

This post is about getting makeup done in 15 minutes. Comes with practice but definitely is compliment-worthy.
I'd suggest a look that can be done by anyone and everyone and yet look radiant. This look is designed with combination to oily skin in mind as this is the commonest skin type found in India. Surely would write about other skin types in some other post.

We need: -

  1. An oil free long lasting foundation like Dior forever extreme wear foundation or Clinique's Perfectly Real Makeup. In the budget buys I'd opt for Max Factor Second skin foundation.
  2. Loose powder like Shiseido Translucent Powder or Clinique Blended Loose Powder (Mineral enriched). Budget buy would be Oriflame Giordani Gold Mineral Powder.
  3. Concealer would be something like Clarins instant Light Perfect Touch or YSL Touche Eclat. I've never found good concealers in the budget section.
  4. Crème to powder blush like Shiseido Accentuating Stick in S2 Peach flush or Clinique Uplighting Illuminator in Peach or Clarins Multi-use in Apricot.
  5. Powder blush like MAC powder blush in Peachy Keen or Body shop shimmery peach blush. I love the Max Factor Flawless Perfection Blush in Naturelle and Revlon Matte blush in Peach.
  6. Bronzer would be Shiseido Multi Shade enhancer in S2 or S3 or Dior Bronzers. I love the L'Oreal Glam Bronze duo as well as the Bourjois bronzing powder in the budget section.
  7. Eye shadows are palettes like Clinique color Surge quad in Spicy or Pink chocolate or Clarins eyeshadow quad in Earthly riches. I love the L'Oreal trio eyeshadow in Doutzen Kroes and Aishwary Rai.
  8. I love the Quickliner for eyes from Clinique in Black-Brown or Bourjois Liners
  9. Mascara is always Clinique Lash Power mascara for vertiginously long lashes and waterproof too. Max Factor Waterproof False Lash Effect mascara is a good deal.
  10. Lipsticks should be Joli Rouge from clarins in soft peach or soft plum shades. Love their glossy finish. Max factor color perfection lipsticks are beautiful for all occasions. One must try Lipfinity from Max Factor as they come in wonderful colors and stay forever.
  11. Gloss calls for Lancôme Juicy tubes or Clinique superbalm moisturizing lipbalms.

This could be an essential kit for everyone on a go. I shall write on more ways to look beautiful for occasions………………

Till then,
