4. Swipe on a glittery hush to set the base for the eye makeup. 

5. Grab black kohl or a pencil to draw your eyeliner on the upper lash line. Do not touch the inner corners of your eyes. 

6. Opt for a metallic gold eyeshadow and use a thin brush to colour it on your eyeliner. This will help amplify your eyes. Refrain from smudging it out too much.

8. Choose a subtle gold eyeshadow to enhance the inner corners of your eyes. 

9. Curl your lashes using mascara. 

10. Groom your eyebrows and fill in your eyebrows with a pencil. 


11. Highlight your cheekbones and go for a soft brown or pink blush to sweep it over the apple of your cheeks. And, apply some on your chin. 

12. Scrub your lips, exfoliate away dead skin. Use nude lipstick and add some gloss. 

13. Lock the makeup with setting powder/spray. 

Note: Since you’re not going all-out with your makeup, contouring can be skipped.
