Everyday Soft & Glowy Makeup Look

Hi Everyone,

Today I'm here to share a break-down of this simple & easy to create 'Soft & Glowy' Makeup Look, which is great for everyday! If you have an outfit that you wish should stand out at an occasion, you can team it up with this makeup; it will give you a radiant look without taking attention away from your outfit :-)

You can create this look using any products that you might have with you, you don't need to use the same ones I did. Here's how I went about creating this look -

1. Base - On a cleansed face, apply your favourite moistuiser. This step hydrates your skin & preps it for makeup. I applied the Nivea Soft Light Moisturiser on my face and neck area.

If you're doing this for a quick, everyday look then skip your foundation and go for a concealer. I used the Derma Cover Concealer to conceal my under eyes, around the nose & mouth & slightly on the forehead. I did not use foundation for this look at all. Apply your favourite compact all over the face, paying special attention to the concealed areas to set those. I used the Rimmell Stay Matte Powder for this (Read about it HERE).

2. Highlighting - Now, for the 'Star' of the show :-) Use a soft highlighter on the area starting from the apples of your cheek to your temples, it will form a slight-V. I used the Swiss Beauty Terracotta Blush for this as it gives a soft glow rather than a strong highlight. The trick is to 'take the slightest amount of highlighter', a little goes a long way! Also, if you have a stippling brush, use that as it picks up very little product but diffuses it beautifully.

3. Eyes - Use a slightly iridescent eye shadow on the eyelids, I used the shade 'Big Ben' from my Sleek Original Palette (Read review HERE) & gave a slight wash of it all over the eye-lid. I have hooded eyes and needed to define my crease, so I used the shade 'London Rain' to do that. If you don't have hooded eyes, you can skip this step. I went for a softly defined lower-lid rather than a strong, black eyeliner; I used Lakme Eyeconic Kohl in Brown for this step. (My apologies, I got rid of the Eyeconic Kohl in Brown since I had completely finished it up :-( hence no pics)

4. Lips - I used the Faces Ultime Pro Longwear Matte Lipstick in 'Peach Blush' as a *ude lipstick. Sorry about the lighting :-) I dont know why this look 'red' on camera, I swear it's beautiful peachy *ude shade...

Hope you liked this quick post on how I created this simple look :-) Do re-create it and tag me to let me know you did! What's your favourite everyday makeup look? What are your 'Go-To' products? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below. 

Until the next post, Ciao!!


  1. Damn pretty neha!!
    Kajal smudged out is what I seem to be moving towards a lot these days.

    1. Thanks Krupz! Smudged kajal looks so much more natural than a defined liner right? :-) I've switched to smudged kajal very recently...
