The Decode

Prep & Prime

  • Prep the skin by moisturising just right.
  • Apply an even amount of Primer that gives a subtle glow and shine on the entire face.

Conceal the skin

  • Use a concealer one shade darker than your skin tone.
  • Use a soft concealing brush or your finger tips to cover the under eyes and the area required.

Tip – In a box Aim for a soft and classy look, let the skin breathe and hence let’s not build up a lot of layers. Using a fluffy brush/ fingertips would not only cover the surface but also ensure that it doesn’t look cakey.

Flawless foundation

  • Pick a lightweight foundation as per your skin tone and add a few drops of skin illuminating Bronzer or highlighter for a seamless bronze goddess finish.

⁠Sealing with Soft Powder

Nude Bronze Blush

  • Brush up your cheeks with an illuminating Nude Bronze Blush for that Au Natural Glow.


  • Brush up a warm Rose Gold highlighter up your cheekbones and Nose bridge for that soft glow.

Sharp Smokey eyes

Use a liquid/ Cream Brown lipstick on your eyelids and create a base

Use a Black Kajal pencil and apply it on the upper lash line, smudge it to give a smoked effect. Also, apply it on the inner lash line and as a kohl in the bottom lash line.

Use a Brown eyeshadow to seal the eye base and give a soft shape to the outer corners and blend it all the way to the lower eyes, creating a soft blended under eye effect.

Use a kohl pencil on the under eye area to create a soft smokey effect and blend it with your brown eyeshadow.

⁠Brush up some mascara and curl your lashes.

Brushed Eyebrows

  • Use an eyebrow pencil and a spooli brush to brush, fill & shape your brows.

⁠Nude lips
