Skin care regime
The mantra is a lot of water intake, especially a glass of warm water early in the morning. I usually increase it before an important event for my skin to look and feel rejuvenated. It helps me feel refreshed. Doing a little extra cardio also brings around a great natural glow.
5 beauty must-haves in your travel kit
A suitable SPF sun block, sanitiser, body and face mist, hand and nail cream, kajal and lip balm.
Magic makeup trick
On days when the weather makes your skin misbehave or you have worked up schedules so your skin shows eruptions, just take a lot of baby lotion and let the skin absorb it. Follow this up with pressed powder to avoid the skin looking too shiny. Wear lots of smudge proof kajal and dollop some waterproof mascara. Soft
cheek crème blush from Inglot and lip plump from Mac or Clinique. Perfect 10-minute makeup!
Heavy cake-ish foundation base with bold eyes and bright lips. Completely wrong combination. Base should always be minimal and either eyes or lips should go bold, never both! That borders on looking scary.
Favorite makeup brand
Bobbi Brown, Mac and Clinique for a few things.
Happy by Clinique and Be Delicious by DKNY. They make me feel refreshed and comfortable in my own skin.
