It is that time of the year – the great Indian festival season is around the corner. It is the time when everyone wants to enjoy festivities while looking their best. But keeping your makeup intact with long hours of celebration can be quite tricky. After all, sweat and heat don’t go well with makeup.
So, here’s how you can flaunt your festival look this Navratri, Karva Chauth and wedding season without having to worry about your makeup getting run over.
1. Prepare your skin:
The festive season is accompanied by a change in weather – from sweltry summers to pleasant autumn. As moisture in the air reduces, the skin can become dry and rough. Pollutants suspended in the air can clog pores, making it difficult for your skin to breathe. Therefore, begin with cleansing your skin to clean up the pores and make it makeup-ready. To avoid dryness, finish off with a light moisturiser and allow it to settle. Spawake has a wide range of face washes and moisturisers that cater to different skin types.
2. Laying the foundation:
Makeup is an art and for that art to shine, the base has to be smooth. The secret to long-lasting makeup is applying a good foundation. For people with oily skin, CC cream is an ideal option as it has a lighter texture and comes in a matte finish. Enriched with SPF 32/PA++, the CC Cream by Spawake locks in moisture for up to 10 hours. If you have dry skin, Moisturise Fresh BB cream by Spawake, with SPF 25/PA++, is a perfect makeup base since it hydrates and moisturises the skin.
3. Applying makeup:
Now that your canvas is ready, go ahead and use your imagination to create your favourite festival look. You can opt for minimal or natural-looking makeup or experiment with bright colours in your makeup palette to sport a bold look. Remember to have fun with it!
4. Lock it all in:
Keeping makeup intact for long hours is the most challenging part of maintaining the festive look. You spend so much time getting prepped for that Dandiya night, getting decked up for Karva Chauth or those numerous wedding ceremonies that sweat, dirt, and excess oil shouldn’t play a spoilsport in your festivities. That’s why Spawake brings to you your makeup saviour—the Spawake Perfect Makeup Keep Mist. Finish off your makeup with this mist and lock your festive look for up to 12 hours. This lightweight makeup setting spray is specially formulated with a long-lasting fixer that ensures your makeup doesn’t run. Infused with the goodness of Vitamin B6, sea salt, and kelp extract, it also helps in nourishing and moisturising your skin. So, you can be rest assured that your makeup will glow all night long!
Now that you have all the tips for the perfect makeup, stop worrying about the heat and makeup faux pas and paint the town red this festive season.
