Q What are the make-up trends that we should look for­ward to in sum­mer?

A For the sum­mer, keep the face look­ing cool and fresh with clean eyes. Use pas­tel shades dusted lightly on the eyes to make them stand out. If you’re in a play­ful mood, use a lime green shadow; keep the lower lid clear of kohl or pow­der. Use one coat of mas­cara to open up the eyes. Dab some soft pink blush on the ap­ples of the cheeks to mimic a nat­u­ral flush while the lips can range from baby pink to a hot pink ac­cord­ing to your mood. Pick a matte lip­stick to add to the sum­mer look. For the night, you can try some colour on the lids—sap­phire blues or green—and add on a de­fined liner and more mas­cara. For the lips, you can try a red shade, which is al­ways a trendy op­tion.

Q What is that one make-up mis­take to ab­so­lutely avoid?

A For the face, ab­so­lutely avoid us­ing foun­da­tion that’s one shade fairer or warmer in a way that it stands out. When you change your face shade, it stands apart from all ex­posed ar­eas—neck, arms, stom­ach and feet—mak­ing it look odd.

Q Any per­sonal favourite make up hacks?

A Use lip balm on the eyes and cheeks to cre­ate an easy, glossy look. Care­ful not to overdo it as it can get greasy. Creamy lip­stick can also be dabbed lightly on the cheeks and eyes for a dewy look.
