Women’s Day is around the corner and to add shimmer to the day, apply a light colour shadow like mauve, or light brown over the entire upper eyelid. Then use dull gold or silver shadow on the upper lid closer to the lashes and also to highlight under the brows.

Choose a pink blusher and be subtle. Powder blushers are easier to apply. The aim should be to give the complexion a healthy glow. Remember the shimmer above the cheekbones with a highlighter.

If you want to line the eyes, use an eye pencil or eyeliner, close to the lashes. Go light on the use of liner, but apply more mascara. Make sure the lashes do not stick together. Brush out the eye lashes with an eyelash comb. For the night, try the smoky eyed look. Apply liner very close to the lashes and then smudge them with a sponge tipped applicator.

Use coloured lip gloss, like light pink or mauve. I think subtlety is far more attractive. Avoid using lip liners and just brush the lips with lipstick, going for shades of pink, from pale pink, to rose or tawny pink.

To add body to the hair, comb all the hair to one side, blow-dry the hair and then comb the hair to the other side and repeat the blow drying. Or bend down and blow-dry the hair upside down, brushing the hair from back to front. It is particularly convenient if the hair is short.

The classic ponytail is dictating trends. Wear it high or low, with a fringe or without. Wisps or curls falling down can add a romantic touch. So can ribbons or hair accessories. For a long face, wear a low pony tail and have a light long fringe falling straight down. 

For an oval face, wear it with a side-swept fringe. For a square jawed face, have wisps of long curls falling down on either side of the face, just beyond jaw level. This will suit a round face too.

Use natural material for accessories, like necklaces and chains made of colourful wooden beads or shells, wooden bangles, terracotta earings and necklaces. The outfit too should be casual and yet romantic, like long skirts with floral prints, or wide pants with colourful tops with crochet, lace or embroidery.
