How to remove make-up:
Even though we want to, most of us are unable to really use make-up to its full potential, primarily because time is always at a premium — with office, home and hearth all clamouring for attention. However, looking well-groomed and fresh is very important – whether it is for a client meeting, job interview, PTA meeting, shopping expedition, office party or a quiet dinner with family. When it comes toappearances, quite literally, make-up can work wonders and propel us from naturally beautiful to sophisticated to glamorous in a matter ofminutes.
The benefits and need of applying make-up are obvious but the questionthat looms large is – how do you apply make-up and get the right look when you haveonly, say, around five minutes to get ready and get out of the door? Or when you have an important client meetingcoming up in around 10 minutes? Or boss decides to have an impromptu celebration for the latest contract signed at the nearby club– in 20 minutes?

The solution

The solution is simple. If you have all the basic arsenal ready — tinted moisturiser, skin illuminator, liquid foundation, concealer, pressed powder, powdereye shadow – two or three shades, eye liner, mascara, blusher, coloured lip gloss, lipstick, lip liner, a soft sponge applicator for theeye shadow, brush for the blusher and ear buds, blotting tissues and cotton balls to correct any make-up mistakes, face wash and cleanser — you can have three different looks in a jiffy.

Option1: Business chic

The all-day look [the natural, no-make-up look]
This look takes around 5-7 minutes to create and is best for a regular day in the office or just running errands.
1. Cleanse your face; apply moisturiser mixed with a skin illuminator or a tinted moisturizer in even strokes
2. Cover up any blemishesor dark circles with concealer
3. Follow up with pressedpowder using a puff. Brush off any excess powder
4. Smile and apply blusheron the apple of the cheeks with light brushstrokes towards the ear.
5. Smear powder eye shadow along your lashlines with a soft sponge applicator. Apply one coat of mascara
6. One coat of coloured lipgloss or a light shade of lipstick gives a healthy, natural look.
And there you are – ready to face the new day.

Option 2: Class apart

The classic look [the sophisticated or polishedlook]
This look is ideal for meetings and takes around 10-12 minutes todo.
Steps 1 to 4 remain the same as the all-day look.
1. Emphasise the eyes. Use two eye shadow colours for the eyes, a light pink or nearly white to apply all over the eyelid including below the eyebrow. The darker shade [brown or any other colour of your preference] is to be applied just over the eyeball area. Use an eye liner on the upper lid. Apply mascara.
2. Apply lip liner and lipstick. Press a tissue paper between your lips to absorb excess lipstick and re-apply lipstick. Put on one coatof lip gloss.
Go on then, show the world the corporate czarina that you really are.

Option 3: Starry Gaze

The party look [the diva or celeb look]
Great for an occasion, it takes around 15 minutesto get this look.
Steps 1 to 4 and 6 remain the same as the classic look.
1. Further accentuate theeyes. Use three shadesof eye shadow. Apply the lighter shadow over all the eye area, the medium shade over the eyelid and the darker shade over the eye crease and outer half of the eyelid. Curl your eyelashes. Apply eye liner on both the upper and lower lids. For a more dramatic look, extend the liner beyond the corner of the eyes. Apply mascara.
Apply a glamorous shadeof nail polish to your nails– express dry nail paints available save precious time.
Hey, enjoy the party!!!
