Here's how you can get flawless look for this Diwali

New Delhi [India], Oct. 13 (ANI): With Diwali just round the corner, you can get a flawless look with these simple yet very useful make-up tips this season.

Here are 11 easy steps recommended by celebrity make-up artist Naunidh Singh for the best results:

Eyes: I would suggest applying eye makeup before any other cosmetics so that the pigment or colored speckles don't fall onto concealer or foundation making it patchy.

First we should apply the eye primer as it protects our skin and also helps us to achieve smooth and better finish. Shadow goes first, then liner, then mascara. Dont forget to highlight your brow bone.

Brows: It totally depend how much definition you want. If you've gone with a natural look, simply smooth hairs into place. When you're wearing more color, apply a dark brown warm eye shadow into your brows with an eye brow brush. For air brush stencils are available and you can simply apply a warm brown with the air gun and define them.

Prep your skin: Clean the under eye area nicely in case of any fall out. Moisturize your skin well and apply primer. Primers are available in each makeup category discussed above.

Concealer and correctors: Cover those dark circles and spots using the correct shades suiting your skin tone. To counteract those shadowy areas, use a finger to pat on a creamy cover-up.

Foundation: If you need to minimize redness or discoloration, blend on a lightweight foundation sparingly with your fingers or a sponge or a brush/ air gun according to your choice of makeup. Working women who just want a light coverage may simply skip this step and use a BB cream instead.

Powder: Instead of pressed powders I recommend translucent powder as it is very light on skin. Choose one to give your cover-ups staying power. Translucent powders are available in different shades and in all categories.

The one available with Temptu for air brush makeup gives a very smooth finish.

Contouring: This is one of my favorite part. With the help of contouring we can literally sculpt our face and make it appear more edgy and thin. For sculpting your cheeks apply bronzer which is 3-4 shades darker than your skin tone and apply it in the hollows of your cheeks and blend it upwards into your hair.

For perfecting your nose use your bronzer with a more precise top and sweep it on both the sides of the bridge of your nose.

This will make your nose appear sharper. Also contour your jaw lines and those double chins and jowls.

In case you have a bigger forehead then contour, the upper part of your forehead and blend you bronzer into the hair line.

Highlighting: For achieving a dewy glow on your face, concentrate on the tops of the cheekbones and the bridge of the nose.

Also highlight the centre of your forehead, cuspids bow right above your lips and your chin. For this use 3-4 shades lighter than your skin tone. There are endless products available in the market in each category for the same. Take your pick.

Blush: Who does not like those rosy cheeks. So go ahead and use your favourite blushes on the apple of your cheeks.

Lipstick: This goes on nearly last so you don't smudge it while working on the rest of your face. When you want the most finished, pulled-together look, pick a stick or a stain. If you're going bright or dark, apply with a brush for precision.

Lip Gloss: For the sheerest effect, go for gloss. It's see-through and light-reflecting, so it makes lips look full. Avoid highly frosted formulas, which can look dated. Just apply a little on the centre of your lips and let your lips shine.

Fix your Makeup: Many of us skip this step. I highly recommend this step, especially for the brides and also if you are going out for a special occasion or parties and require makeup to stay on for long hours.

Lots are available in the market but my personal favourite is from NYX. It's available in both Matt and dewy finish. (ANI)
