To be able to look stunning throughout the day is as big a myth as the existence of suave, rich vampires and the Hogwarts School of Wizardry. The idea sounds amazing and definitely sets you day-dreaming. But, one snap back into the mundane reality of day-to-day life and work commitments to name a few will leave you wanting.

While there’s not much we can do to fix the situation about Hogwarts and gorgeous vampires in suits, we can certainly take action about the stunning bit. And although we are perfectly ready with a series of tips to help you through your day, we’ve carved out a simple process to accomplish our mission, using just 3 valuable tips from the fashionistas and youth icons from glam street.

If you have an issue, here’s a tissue – Jeff Rich

A simple solution by the English rock drummer of former rock band ‘Status Quo. ‘ Keep a pack of wet wipes easily accessible in your handbag. There are times in the day when your skin feels dry and scratchy, especially after some time out in the scorching heat. Use the tissue and gently refresh the skin for a pleasant feeling.

I believe that all women are pretty without makeup – and can be pretty powerful with the right makeup – Bobbi Brown

A striking lady recognized worldwide for her range of products and books on beauty tips, she advises girls to keep their compact powder always handy. A slight touch up through the day keeps your face looking fresh and pretty and keeps you confident and happy.

On a bad day, there’s always lipstick – Audrey Hepburn

We couldn’t agree more with this goddess of beauty, fashion and a sensational diva to have ever lived. She carried herself with the right amount of sass and confidence and her persona was unmatched.

Follow her footsteps and get yourself the perfect shade of lipstick. Lipstick not only lightens up your face but, also gives you a definite and complete look. What’s best that it suits every situation and is a life-saver in situations where finding time is a battle and your make up resources rare.

This is all you need to look gorgeous throughout the day. And, while we’re on the topic, let us run through an important aspect of the foundation of your make up.

I have witnessed many instances where the best make up falls flat because it doesn’t do justice to a person’s skin tone. Each skin type is different and has a natural undertone. The compact powder/ foundation selected should complement the person’s look to get best results.

We at #StyleShaala provide you a quick and easy technique to identify your Skin type!

Skin types are divided into three options:-

  1. Warm undertone
  2. Cool undertone
  3. Neutral undertone

And although this sounds complicated to decipher, all you have to do is raise your hand to get the answer. Yes, that’s it.

THE PROCESS

Check out the colour of the veins at the front side of your ankle.

  1. If the veins are green in colour, you have a warm undertone.
  2. If the veins are blue in colour, you have a cool undertone.
  3. If the veins present are in both the colours, your undertone is neutral.

IMPORTANT STYLESHAALA TIPS

 

  • Use different shades of lipstick for different occasions

 

Opt for shades of pink and red for social gatherings. Keep it simple with shades of brown and light colours for formal meetings. Experiment with bolder colours for parties and wedding functions.

 

  • Team it up with Gloss

 

Add a coat of transparent or subtle coloured gloss to complete the look.

 

  • Application of Foundation

 

Spread the foundation evenly in key areas like the forehead, under the eyes and your nose line.
