Like to keep it natural? Go for a natural or minimal makeup look. It goes with every outfit and looks effortless. 

How to create this look : 

The minimal makeup look is all about the base. Get the base right, blend it well and your 80% work is done. Moisturise your skin well and use a primer before applying the foundation. Remember, it’s a soft look so you can skip contouring. Apply light blush that looks like a natural flush on your cheeks. You can use the same blush as eyeshadows, or you can skip eyeshadows altogether. Apply a nude shade lipstick and lots of mascara. Fill your eyebrows, and you are good to go. 

#2 Bold eyes, minimal lips

You can never go wrong with smokey eyes. It’s one of the makeup looks that suits Indian skin tones beautifully. For an evening event, opt for bold smokey eyes and keep the rest of the face neutral. 

How to create this look : 

Always start with your eye makeup when going for this look. There’s a high chance of eyeshadow fallout which you can clean before applying the base. The simplest way of creating this look is by applying a thick coat of black or brown liner on your lower and upper lash line and smudging it. Go for a nude lipstick and you are done.
