Shreya begins by applying a Primer, usually, a gel that is applied after moisturizer and before foundation. A primer renders the skin smooth for applying makeup and aids keeping the makeup intact, a desirable trait for the long festive hours.  She moves on to using a lightweight foundation and a highlighting concealer. Face contouring, a technique that was privy to runway models and fancy photo shoots is a subtle definition to enhance the facial structure. Shreya also goes on to use the blush to add some color to the face.


She then moves on to the eye makeup and begins by defining the eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil. Indian ladies are endowed with some thick eyebrows and often skip this step. But defining the eyebrows definitely, enhances the eyes and brings out the eye makeup. Using a golden eyeshadow. a must have for this festive season, Shreya uses a dark shaded (bronze) eyeshadow in the outer corner of the eyes while highlighting the inner corners with a white or silver eyeshadow. Using a jet black eyeliner to create thicker lashes and a mascara to open up the eyes, Shreya finishes off the eye makeup, looking absolutely gorgeous.


Applying a mauvy dusty colored lipstick that will flatter any outfit, Shreya finishes off this tutorial with a dazzling smile and a inspires us to try  this look for the festive season.
