Beauty Lessons: Everyday Make-up
We’re celebrating Women’s Day starting today with some exciting and simple make-up tips and tricks for every day make-up. So whether you’re working a 9-to-5, attending lectures or simply chilling with friends, here’s your cheat sheet.
Step 1: Prep
Give your skin an even and dewy tone by using your preferred CC creams. A CC cream or BB cream is much lighter than heavy-duty foundations that make you look cake-up and fake.

Step 2: Conceal
Hide those pesky spots and marks on your face and those late-night undereye bags and dark circles with just a dab of concealer. Too much concealer can make you look older, so use with refrain.

Step 3: Blush
All your skin needs is a healthy just-worked-out flush. Smile your widest and trace the apples of your cheek and carefully apply some blush going up till your hairline!

Step 4: Eyebrow pencil
Strong brows frame your face and make you look younger. Use an eyebrow pencil and lightly fill in all gaps in your brows. Use a pencil that closely matches the exact colour of your brow hair. Stick to a dark brown if you have any doubts.
SC recommends: Faces Eye Pencil - ₹449
Step 5: Kaajal and mascara
Eye pencil or kaajal especially in a jet black colour suits all skin tones and ages. Look for one that is smudge-proof so it doesn't run because of the heat and you don't end up looking like a panda. Mascara helps to open up tired eyes.

Step 6: Lip liner and lipstick
Shades like berry pink, brick red and soft coral work well on Indian skin tones. First start with a match lip liner to define and shape your lips. Smudge the liner all over your lips with your finger before applying lip stick as this makes the lipstick last longer. Dust with translucent powder to mattify.
