The festive season is here and so is the summer shaadi season! This means just two awesome things, lots of amazing food and lots of dress-up games with guilt-free makeup sessions! Oh, how awesome does that sound!

But hold on ladies, don’t get too excited because most of you tend to commit certain makeup mistakes when the festivities get a little too overwhelming. Hence we are here to get you sorted with your festive makeup game. Let’s get started!

Makeup Do’s that you must follow


Your first and foremost festive makeup tip is to stay hydrated. No matter how much makeup you wear, a tired face always shows. So, get an ample amount of rest and drink lots of water and fresh fruit juices. One of the best and yummiest fluids to add to your hydration is coconut water. Coconut water is packed with natural electrons that not only hydrate your body, but it also gives you an instant boost of energy.


Be it daytime or night do not forget your moisturizer before your makeup. Your makeup will look proper and flawless only when your skin prep is done well. Hence, never miss out on your moisturizer after cleansing your skin. This will not only hydrate your skin, but it will also give your skin a beautiful natural glow.

We suggest that you pick the Advanced Activs Skin Glow Power Serum. This will hydrate your skin with the right amount of moisture and leave your skin glowing from within. This serum is the best pick for your summer festive makeup look because it has been infused with Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid which is meant to deeply hydrate and repair your skin from within.


It is a crime not to prime! Never ever miss out on your primer. Your primer is basically your festival makeup savior! It’ll give your makeup a seamless finish and also make it last longer. You can dance your heart out and sweat it out without worrying about your makeup. Summer festivals and weddings can get overwhelming because of the heat, hence if you miss out on your primer, your awesome festive makeup look will just melt away.

Makeup removal

No matter how tired you feel after the festivities are over, always remove your makeup. Some days the party might go on a little longer, and it shouldn’t matter how exhausted you are, never skip on removing your makeup and washing your face. Because come on! You wouldn’t want to wake up with an annoying pimple guest on your face and ruin the remaining set of functions lined up. Don’t forget to take a little extra care in removing your festive eye makeup, because heavy eye makeup has every makeup product on. And keeping your eyes clean before bed is important so that your eyes don’t catch an infection.

Makeup Don’ts that you must never miss out on!

Lip Balm

Don’t ever skip on your lip balm before makeup if you’re planning to wear matte or liquid matte lipstick. Remember, chapped lips with lipstick on aren’t glamorous at all.

Hence a major festive makeup tip is to prep your lips well before applying your lipstick. You can begin by scrubbing your lips. You can either get a lip scrub or make your own lip scrub using granulated sugar, grounded coffee, and a few drops of olive oil. Gently scrub your lips for 2-3 minutes and then wipe it off. Next, apply a lip balm or a lip mask generously all over your lips and let it stay on for at least 15-20 minutes. Wipe off gently, and then apply your lipstick. This will keep your lips hydrated and also make your lipstick last longer.

Concealer & Color Corrector

Your festival beauty products list must include a concealer and a color corrector. To even out your dark circles, marks, and uneven skin tone for a flawless makeup finish you need to make sure your base makeup is done well. For that, you need to first apply a color corrector to even out your skin tone.

If you have dark circles, dark spots, or dark pigmentation then you will need an orange color corrector. If you have active and pink pimples or pinkish discoloration then you will need a green color corrector. Make sure you blend your corrector well, and then apply your foundation followed by your concealer. This will give your festival makeup a flawless finish with a natural even tone.

Compact Powder

Your compact powder is another important festival beauty product that you must have. A compact powder helps in setting your cream makeup products well and makes them last longer. If you have oily skin, then carry your compact powder in your purse in case you need a quick makeup fix. This will also give your makeup a fresh look.

Festive eye makeup

If you want your festive eye makeup to pop, then use a concealer before you begin your eye shadow game for a better color payoff. Your concealer works like a base and that creates a plain canvas for your eye shadow. An important festive makeup tip is to pick a concealer lighter than your skin tone for a brighter color pay-off. This will give your eye makeup look a pigmented and bright finish.


Lastly, never ever forget your perfume, because it’s all about how gorgeous you look and how wonderful you smell! Get alcohol-free roll-on perfumes from Iba that you can carry around for a touch-up anytime, anywhere! These perfumes are absolutely pure and free from harmful ingredients like alcohol, spirits, and artificial fragrances that harm your skin and also stain your clothes. These perfumes are halal-certified, which makes them a great addition to your festival beauty products collection.

Whenever you apply your perfume, make sure you apply it to your pulse points like your wrist, inside your elbows, and behind your ears for a long–lasting fragrant effect. You can also finish off by adding a little perfume to your hair brush and running it through your hair for an extra fragrant finish.
