Maanavi from Makeup by Maanavi
Read on to know Maanavi’s favorite DIY makeup products that she swears by especially for the brides.
Take a few drops of full coverage/heavy foundation and a dollop of your favorite light weight moisturizer. Mix them together thoroughly and test a small amount on your face to check the consistency (add more drops of foundation if want more coverage). If the coverage is satisfactory, apply the BB cream all over the face for a dewy finish. If you have dry skin, you can even add 2-3 drops of your favorite oil (maracuja, jojoba, coconut etc.) for extra hydration. And people with oily skin can dust a little translucent powder on the T-zone to remove any unwanted shine.
Maanavi personally recommends products made using natural ingredients. This lip stain requires some cherries, berries, pomegranate, beetroot and other red colored fruits crushed in a bowl. Once done, strain the liquid out through a strainer. Add 2-4 drops of olive oil for easy application. Apply a few coats with an ear bud or a lip gloss applicator and say flaunt a natural looking pink pout!
Alternate Option -
Take a spoonful of petroleum jelly (vaseline) and add a few drops (2-4) of red food coloring. Mix well and apply on lips for the perfect moisturized lip stain.
According to Maanasi, matte lipsticks have been a rage in the makeup world this year. But if you own only glossy/creamy lip shades, you can them into matte long wear ones in no time. Just apply any creamy or satin lipstick in any shade over your lips. Take a textured tissue paper and dip a fluffy brush into some translucent powder. Place the tissue over your lips and gently pat dusting the powder onto the lips. Cover a layer all over and remove the paper to reveal a mattified lipstick that is transfer resistant.
‘It is mandatory for every bride to use a waterproof/tearproof kajal,’ says Maanasi. But, you don’t need to invest in a high priced kajal when you can make one easily at home.
Apply your favorite kajal on the waterline. Then, take a small flat eye brush and coat it in black eye shadow. Carefully pat it on the waterline over the kajal for the longest waterproof wear!
