Well, I have become a champion of getting ready in 5 minutes. Thanks to hectic work schedules, by default I get only 5 minutes to be tip top. A splash of sunscreen followed by a thick Kohl and eyeliner and a lip gloss gets me ready in no time. On good days, an eye shadow compliments the look. A quick hairdo in a high pony or leaving the hair half tied does my magic. In all 5 minutes and I m good to go…

The winners for the Elle 18 contest are Saloni and Kusum. Congratulations girls and radiate with the all new Elle 18 hamper.

  1. Your secret to create a stunning Diwali make up look in 5 minutes is simple eyeliner and a touch of lipstick as these two features speaks all and makes me feel beautiful.”I think I speak for all women when I say we want to feel beautiful. Not just look beautiful, but feel it. Feel it from the inside out. Radiate it. Embrace it. And do it without caking on layers of makeup.

My secret to create a stunning Diwali make up look in 5 minutes is as following- I apply BB cream to get that quick perfect look and highlight my eyes with the help of Upper lash liner ( now a days i am in love with blue liners ) and a good mascara which give me that needed look. And my favorite red lipstick that brighten my days anytime so this is what i can swear by.

  4. For my quick fix Diwali look, here’s what i’d do…

    I’d start with Cleansing followed by Toning and completed by Moisturizing.

    Finally never without the 3 make-up essentials Kajal, Mascara and Lipstick.
