QI have a cut in my eye­brows, and it makes me look very unattrac­tive. How do I cam­ou­flage it well?

– Neha

AA cut in eye­brows can re­ally de­stroy the whole look. To cover it well, use an eye­brow pen­cil and draw fine hair-like lines in one di­rec­tion. To make your pen­cil last longer, freeze it for an hour be­fore us­ing it. You can also use eye­brow pow­der with the help of an an­gu­lar eye­brow brush for a softer look. You can even con­sult a spe­cial­ist and opt for per­ma­nent make-up to flaunt per­fectly arched brows for a longer pe­riod of time.

QI own a range of lip colours, but most of them tend to fade away over a cou­ple of hours leav­ing my lips look­ing pale and colour­less. What can I do to make the colour last longer?

– Sonam

AShape up your lips with a lip liner and fill them with the same. Dab off the ex­tra with a tis­sue pa­per and pow­der your lips with a face pow­der. Ap­ply your favourite lip colour and dab off the ex­tra again. Pow­der your lips and seal them with a lip sealer. This regime will make any lippes last through the day. Ap­ply­ing too much of gloss also makes your lip­stick come off sooner. You may also choose from a va­ri­ety of long last­ing kiss-proof lip­sticks and lip plumpers avail­able in the mar­ket to perk up that pout.

QI have a dusky skin and I’ve tried all kinds of make-up. If I ap­ply it too light, it’s al­most in­vis­i­ble, if too dark, it looks very gaudy. How do I make it glam­orous and classy at the same time?

– Ri­tika

AFor dusky skin tone, it is im­por­tant to judge your un­der­tone to make your make-up look nat­u­ral and glow­ing. Dusky skin tones need more pig­mented prod­ucts as com­pared to cau­casian skin to make the make-up more vis­i­ble. Jew­elled tones like emer­ald, ruby, sap­phire, cop­per, bronze, rust and gold can give you the oomph fac­tor without mak­ing you look all made up. Dust some bronzer to en­hance the glam quo­tient.
