Dusky skin makeup guide for Diwali 

Though the beauty market has thankfully opened up with a range of options for us dusky girls, getting the right combination can be a little tricky. Especially when we would like to go bold during the festive season like Diwali. For this very reason, we have got together some effective yet simple tips that will help you nail the look. 

Setting the base

This is the perfect time to flaunt that festive glow! To begin with, start with a clean, well exfoliated and moisturised face. Makeup looks smooth and flawless when your skin has been taken care of on a regular basis. A good exfoliator will help you get rid of all the dead skin cells and dirt as well as prepare the skin to absorb the moisturiser and hold the makeup for long. Opt for a quality scrub and use it twice a week depending upon your skin type.

Our pick – Lotus Herbal Apricot Scrub

This contains natural goodness and gets deep within the skin and works hard to get the job done.

Find a foundation that is your right match 

You might want to go heavy with your makeup during the festive season. A good foundation will help you have that clean canvas. The tone you use can make or break your look, choose something lighter and you will land up having an ashy face, whereas a darker one will be ab obvious mismatch. Also, each brand is different, so figure out what is your skin tone as per the brand too. It might be a pain in the beginning but will certainly help you out later.

Tip: Mix a tiny amount of your everyday moisturiser so that the foundation can blend easily on the skin. For the festive season, take a tiny amount of shimmer while doing so. This will give you flawless coverage along with a supple and glowing effect.

Our pick: Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte+Poreless Liquid Foundation

Highlighting eye-makeup enhances your dusky skin tone

When your skin is on the darker side, it is obvious that eyes and lashes are deep too. With darkness and deepness, the eyes become very expressive. Enhance these features more! This is the time you can go bold on the eyes to perfectly match your heavily embellished traditional clothes.

Use a cream-based eyeliner as it blends well and looks more natural on dusky skin. The highlighting eyeshadow with more of dark metallic tone works best for this season. Most suitable shades to be considered are browns, prunes, copper, burgundy, and such.
