Aussie Fashion blog’s featured makeup writer, Muskaan Ahuja a Dubai based professional Make-up and Special effects Artist has come up with a simple 5-step routine that can transform you into a glam diva. A must have guide for the ever busy woman of today, from office to the dance floor in minutes!

This 3rd series of ‘happy MakeupLicious’ brings to you the tutorial of how to transform your look from subtle to a glam diva by just building on to your existing make-up in just 5 simple steps.

Day to Night in 5 Steps

Step 1: SMOKEY EYES.

Use a soft kohl liner along your lash line, then smudge it upwards with your fingertips or a sponge. This would create a Smokey eye in a flash. Dab on an eye shadow in a frosty carbon shade and blend all using a good blender brush.

Step 2 –  LUSH LASHES.

Forget mascara as adding more coats over dried mascara will only cause it to clump and crumble. Instead, invest in a pair of false lashes that you can whip on in a flash. Apply the lashes using a pair of tweezers for precision and gently squeeze them along with natural lases with mascara on. This will help in blending both together.

Step 3 – SCULPTED GLOW.

Use concealer under your eye and to cover blemishes. Sweep matt bronzer or a blusher of your choice along the cheekbones towards temples, your forehead and chin. Use a lighter shade to highlight your cheeks, nose bridge, eye-brow line and inside your eye corners.

Step 4 – PALE POUT

If you’re drawing attention to your eyes, play down your lips with pinkish coloured gloss. Alternatively , use a lip stain for lasting effect, or a long wearing lip colour in a nude or buff shade.

Step 5- GLAM HAIR.

Pin your hair into a low bun or twist it round, pinning as you go to create a messier look with delicate wisps. Glam it up with a bejewelled hair accessory and you’re all set for a glam evening.

Happy MakeupLicious: The perfect bronzed beauty

legs

This is the second post in our ‘Happy MakeupLicious’ series, where we let you in the secrets on applying bronzer like a pro. Our featured cosmetic technician is Muskaan Ahuja, a gorgeous Certified Professional Make Up Artist and Special Effects from ESMOD University Dubai.

In this post she shares her trade secrets for the art of bronzing.  Many celebrities end up as front-page news for their bronzer disasters, the latest victim being Catherine Zeta Jones. Even a bronzer pro like Pippa Middleton, who has been dubbed by British media to have created the ‘middletan effect’, has had her share of  ‘too orange’ royal tan disasters.

So why does everyone still brave dangerous waters like bronzing? Simple, it’s the ultimate look for a fashion and style diva, a sun kissed glow. Summery bronze skin is sexy and sporting it all year round is the hallmark of a true style diva. However the aim is to be a golden beauty not orange faced!

How to avoid the ‘FAKE TAN’ look?

Aim for one shade darker than your current skin tone, anything more and you are setting the stage for being labelled, ‘Fake Bake’. Also if you are pale skinned try investing in a body lotion that builds up a gradual tan, all over your body. Sporting a bronze face with a pale body is a fashion faux pas you really should avoid.

Wait approximately 10 mins after moisturising your face before you apply makeup, especially a bronzer, as it won’t blend evenly. A lot of bronzers tend to have orange undertones, try to go with a nude-brown undertone.

‘Happy MakeupLicious’: The perfect bronzed beauty tips.

Our Dubai based expert, Muskaan Ahuja, a professional Makeup and Special effect Artist shows you how to become a woman that knows how to apply a bronzer and look good.  She lists out four simple rules that can turn you into a sun kissed goddess.

“When it comes to bronzing, you either know how to do it or you don’t, “ Muskaan says of the art of bronzing, “and when you don’t, it really looks bad!”

Her simple 4 rules step is as follows:

Rule 1 – Bronzer should look natural, so match it to your décolleté or upper arm. Which is a true match of your most tanned areas.

Rule 2- Apply bronzer to your face in the same direction as the sun naturally hits it. Apply downward strokes, hitting your T-zone, cheekbones and chin.

Rule 3 – Never use bronzer to contour your face. You may see this look in fashion shoots in magazines, but it doesn’t work in real life.

“Always accessorise with a smile,” says Muskaan. “A smile is the best make-up you can wear every day! ”
