We cannot emphasise more on the importance of a well hydrated skin. It not only provides the perfect canvas for makeup, but also reflects light to give that instant glow. If you have a party or a wedding to attend, make sure you start drinking at least 8-10 glasses of water everyday.

#2 Do a quick facial

Before you start doing anything else, prepare your face by going in for a quick facial at home. Prepare a mixture of 1 tabespoon of tumeric, besan, honey and lemon and milk if you dry skin. Use this paste all over your face and neck and let it set for 20 minutes. Wash it off with cold water and you will be able to notice a slight instant glow on your face.

#3 Use tea bags

Once you are don with the tea bags, run an ice cube around your face. This will instantly refresh your skin and also make it makeup ready. Plus, the cooling effect of the ice cubes will relax your tensed muscles and also rehydrate your skin.

#5 Moisturise your face

Always remember to moisturise your face before you put the primer or foundation on. And yes, it is very much true even for those of you who have oily skin. Keeping your face moisturised means that you keep your skin well hydrated and that provides a smooth and gliding canvas for your face.

Bonus tip!

Before you apply the foundation, use an illuminating tinted primer. This not only helps you set the foundation in place for a longer time, but also provides an instant glow. There are many such primers available in the market and can cost you anything between Rs 500 and Rs 2500.
