Oct 4, 2015, 3:10 IST



If you thought velvet was just a rich fabric for your attire, then it’s time to wear it differently. With a velvety finish, you can now enhance the classy appeal of your makeup like never before. We groom you to do so and look trendy with élan.




1. For your face
Your face is the canvas on which the colours of makeup are painted, so make sure to wear a good base. Cleanse and hydrate your face before you proceed. Create the illusion of flawless skin with a multi-functional product that works as a concealer, foundation and compact at the same time. With a single sweep, you will get the alluring finish.
Try: Lancôme Miracle Cushion liquid compact

2. For your eyes
Intense eye makeup always makes an impact. Apply a rich colour on your eyelids with a blending brush and define your eyes up to the socket bone. You can set by smearing a thin film of transparent lip balm, to enhance the velvety smooth texture.

3. For your lips

Make a beauty statement with a sensuous pout. Outline your lips with the same shade as you choose to fill in for the lip colour. Keeping your puckers hydrated, apply two coats of lipstick with a glossy texture that makes your lips look soft and fuller.

4. For your cheeks
Apply a blush that has a hint of highlighter as well. Sculpt your cheekbones by sucking in your lips and add a warm colour to the cheeks. Use your fingers to blend the edges seamlessly. Finish by gently tapping the same colour on the apples of your cheeks as you smile to add on to the glow.

5. For your nails
No grooming is complete without nail paint. So apply a shade that has a textured effect. You can finish with a glossy top coat for that glamourous effect.
