With the party season around the corner, there is a lot of pressure to look good. Lakmé beauty expert Donald Simrock and TIGI Educator Audrey D’Souza share some of the simplest yet best kept beauty secrets that will help you look your best this party season:

Dab a subtle shade of eye-shadow. Then, use the kohl to smudge the corner of the eye to give a smokey effect. (Shutterstock)

* Let your eyes do the talking

Preparation: Start by moisturising and nourishing your skin.
Eye: Dab a subtle shade of eye-shadow. Then, use the kohl to smudge the corner of the eye to give a smokey effect.
Pout that lip: Use a nice nude matte on the lip
Hair:
Cleanse your hair with a volumising shampoo and conditioner for extra moisture and protein. Add a dollop of smoothening serum for a silky-smooth finish on semi-dry hair. Using a curler, take even horizontal sections of hair and wrap these sections around the tong. Once the hair is hot, remove the curler and leave it for a bit to cool. Continue this process until you have completed the entire head and then move on to the curls. Finish by adding a hairspray to keep them in place.

* The girl next door look

Preparation: Moisturise your skin.
Eye: A winged eye is always in style.
Get cheeky: A hint of colour from a blush never goes wrong.
Pout that lip: Use the same lip and cheek tint for this as well.
Hair: Shampoo and condition your hair with a moisturising shampoo and conditioner, and towel-dry. Use a brush to smooth strands. Gather your hair right below the crown of your head, smoothing the front and sides as you brush your hair back. Apply smoothening serum to reduce frizz and add texture.

Still holding your hair with your right hand, apply a quarter-size amount of hair gel onto your fingertips, and then spread it all over your hair, starting half an inch back from your hairline to give it a sheen. Spritz on some hairspray, which will provide an extra hold. Secure your ponytail with a bungee. After your ponytail is secure, take a section of hair from underneath it and wrap it around the bungee with bobby pins, for a chic, pulled-together look.

* Play it simple
Preparation: Give your skin an effortless glow by finding yourself the perfect shade.
Eye: Try shimmer bronze and get a metallic effect on the lids. Don’t forget mascara to up the glam quotient.
Pout that lip: Try a gorgeous bold shade.
Hair: Spray some volumising hair mousse on damp hair from root to end. Blast dry using a wide paddle brush. Curl your hair with a curling iron, working a one-inch section. Make sure you leave about one or two inches of the ends untouched for a more natural feel. Tie your hair into buns and let them stay so for about 30 minutes. Open them up and spot-spray with hair spray to keep those waves in place.
