1. Prep and Prime

Before diving into the world of eyeshadows and lipsticks, it's crucial to prep your skin for a long-lasting makeup look. Start by cleansing your face with a gentle cleanser and follow it up with a toner to remove any residual dirt or impurities. Moisturise with a lightweight formula suitable for your skin type.

Next, apply a primer that suits your needs – whether you want pore minimization or oil control – as this will create the perfect base for your makeup. Don't forget to apply an SPF-infused moisturiser if you're stepping out during daylight hours.

To give yourself an extra boost of radiance, mix a drop of liquid highlighter into your foundation or BB cream before applying it evenly all over your face. This will ensure a beautiful lit-from-within glow that lasts throughout the day.

2. Flawless Base

Now that your skin is prepped and primed, it's time to create a flawless base. Start by applying a lightweight foundation or tinted moisturiser that matches your skin tone perfectly. Use a damp beauty sponge or a foundation brush to blend it seamlessly into your skin, ensuring even coverage.

To hide any dark circles or blemishes, use a concealer that closely matches your skin tone. Apply it using a small brush or your fingers and gently blend it out for a natural finish. Set your base with a translucent powder to ensure it stays in place all day long.

For those who prefer minimal coverage, opt for a BB cream or CC cream that offers buildable coverage while providing skincare benefits. If you have oily skin, don't forget to dust some setting powder on your T-zone to control shine.

3. Alluring Eyes

No Pongal makeup look is complete without mesmerising eyes. To start, apply an eyeshadow primer to prevent creasing and help the colours pop. Then, choose warm earthy tones like burnt orange, terracotta, or gold.

Apply the lighter shade all over your eyelid as a base colour and then add depth by blending the darker shade into the outer corner of your eye and along the crease. To make your eyes pop, dab some shimmery gold eyeshadow onto the centre of your lid and inner corners.

Next, define your eyes with eyeliner. Opt for a traditional black winged liner or experiment with coloured liners like deep green or navy blue for an extra festive touch. Finish off with mascara – curl your lashes first and then apply two coats of mascara for volume and length.

4. Blushed Cheeks

Now that your eyes are captivating, let's add a flush of colour to your cheeks. Choose a warm-toned blush that complements your skin tone – think coral, peach, or rose shades. Smile and lightly apply the blush onto the apples of your cheeks, blending it out towards your temples for a natural rosy glow.

If you want an extra hint of radiance, sweep a highlighter across the high points of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and above your cupid's bow. This will give you a beautiful lit-from-within glow and enhance your features.

5. Luscious Lips

To complete your Pongal makeup look, let's focus on those lips. Start by exfoliating them gently with a lip scrub to remove any dry or flaky skin. Apply a moisturising lip balm to keep them soft and hydrated throughout the day.

For Pongal festivities, opt for subtle lip colours like soft browns or nude pinks. If you prefer a bolder look, choose lilac or maroon shades that complement the rest of your makeup. Line your lips with a lip liner in a matching shade for added definition and to prevent feathering.
