"Perfectly shaped brows frame your face, pull your features into focus and give an instantaneous lift, so don't neglect them", advises make-up artist Mrignaina Kumar.
7. Stick to The BasicsGood skin
is the best foundation, so if you decide to go makeup free, stay true to your skincare regime. Cleanse regularly, and spritz with rose water twice a day for that fresh look. Use toner, as it helps restore pH balance of your skin. If you focus on good skin care
, you really won't need makeup.
8. For that Million Dollar Smile
Exfoliate your lips by gently rubbing a dampened toothbrush and hydrate with a lip balm to get rid of cracked lips. Since a beautiful smile helps your face look young and luminous, make sure you give your lips and teeth the attention they deserve. Brush at least twice a day, and when you have some extra time on your hands - add baking powder to your toothbrush and brush for whiter teeth. Just like Marilyn Monroe said, "A smile is the best makeup any girl can wear".

1. Beetroot Blush On, Anyone?
Yes, it's true. You can apply this miracle food to your cheeks for that rosy touch. All you need is beetroot
, but if your wish to customize the shade - you can add cocoa powder for a darker colour and arrowroot powder for a lighter shade. Also, you can add ginger
powder for a shimmery finish.
Here's the recipe for beetroot powder: Boil a few beets, then peel them and cut into thin strips. Now, dehydrate them using an oven at 140 F with the door open. You can also use a dehydrator. After 8-10 hours they will be fully dehydrated, so grind using a food processor and voila. Your DIY blush on is ready!
