  • First off make sure that your eye bags or dark circles are hidden well. For this just use some concealer in the dark areas under your eyes.
  • Make sure you don’t overdo the plucking of eyebrows.
  • While applying mascara work on your lower lashes first and then on your top lashes. This way you won’t make a mess of your eye shadow.
  • If you are applying liquid eyeliner, use a handled mirror. Look down at the mirror while applying for best result.
  • To look more awake use a highlighter pen, the one manufactured by MAC of the lighter boost shade. This will make your eye area glow.
  • If glasses are a must for you, use a colored eyeliner on the lower lashes and go for black eyeliner for the upper lashes.

Once those gorgeous eyes are done, get down to those lush lips-

  • Gently rub your lips with Vaseline and a toothbrush for smooth lips before applying lipstick.
  • To make your lip color last longer put on a bit of face powder on your lips and then apply lipstick. This will make your lip color last longer and prevent it from getting removed from the edges.

As for your face, there are a few things you MUST keep in mind to attain a flawless look:

  • Use Evian water on your face to give your face a light look and to set your makeup. Do this before using foundation or powder.
  • If you want to give off a bold look through your makeup, make sure that makeup of only one of your facial features gives you that bold look. If you are using bright red lipstick for the day, then use subtle eye makeup. Similarly if you are feeling like experimenting with bright green eyeliner then don’t use that maroon lipstick. This will make you look sophisticated and also show off your knowledge of fashion.
  • Chose the foundation that suits your skin, not just something that someone suggested to you. If you have dry skin then you should only use a hydrating foundation, whereas if your skin is oily then you should go for matte foundation.
  • Do you have the habit of applying eye makeup after you have put on your foundation? This is a very common mistake that you would be better off avoiding. If you put foundation after doing eye makeup you will be able to get rid of mistakes you made while putting eye makeup.

The mind of an introvert works in the weirdest fashion. They are overly sensitive, sentimental and have tons of thoughts running through their minds, but at the same time, for reasons unknown even to themselves, they like nothing better than to stay aloof. Being one such self-confessed introvert, I have always loved putting my thoughts into words. Good books and music with moving lyrics work as my Muse. Children and things abounding with innocence strengthen my faith in goodness. Contemporary Indian works of literature make me a happy bookworm, and songs by Coldplay brighten up my day like nothing else! Here's hoping you will enjoy reading my posts, for you can trust an introvert to be a keen observer and a very devoted blogger!
