Easy and Skin-Friendly Makeup Tips for Holi

With Holi just around the corner, excitement is in the air! While celebrating Holi can be a blast, we doubt the same can be said about your skin! Thanks to our Nani-Dadi ke nuske, protecting your hair and skin from the harsh chemicals in Holi colors is within one’s control, but what about shining on the actual day of the festival?

Taking care of your skin for Holi doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun with makeup, the key lies in preparing your skin adequately before playing with different Holi makeup looks. Here are some simple and skin-friendly makeup tips that you must know about:

1.Pre-Holi Skincare:

If you plan to celebrate Holi, it’s important to take care of your skin beforehand. Make sure you hydrate and moisturize your skin. Use non-greasy formulations that won’t clog your pores. Additionally, applying coconut oil on your exposed skin and hair can create a protective barrier, which prevents the color pigments from damaging your skin. If you’re playing Holi outdoors, remember to apply sunscreen to shield your skin from harmful UV rays.

2.Use a Primer:

To further avoid clogging your pores and breaking out from your Holi makeup, it’s essential to use a primer. Apply a water-based or silicone-based primer before your makeup to create a barrier between your skin and the colors. This will make it easier to remove the makeup later and help you achieve a flawless festive look.

3.Waterproof Makeup:

Dodge any embarrassing makeup mishaps while celebrating the festival of colours, make sure to choose the right makeup products. Opt for waterproof or water-resistant makeup products. This will ensure your makeup doesn’t run or smudge and your festive look stays intact even if you get drenched in water or colors.

4.Eye Makeup:

Focus on eye makeup that is waterproof and smudge-proof. Just correctly filling in brows makes a world of difference to your face. Use our Uroparis Brush 152and 153 for complete precision. While eyeshadows, eyeliners and kohl pencils are things you should strictly avoid while playing Holi, there is no harm in flaunting those fluttery lashes. Our Uroparis PRO CLUSTER #1 strip lashes are great for keeping a more open-eye effect and are ideal for almost all eye shapes. Stick with our UROPARIS PRO EYELASH ADHESIVE; it has a water-based acrylic formula that is safe and comfortable, providing the perfect amount of hold for Uroparis eyelashes and other cosmetic accessories. Apply a coat of waterproof mascara to avoid any running or smearing.

5.Avoid Cream-based Product:

Steer clear of cream-based products for Holi makeup, as they can easily mix with the colors and may become harder to remove later. Stick to powder-based alternatives, as they create a protective barrier on your skin. This will not only stand up better against the onslaught of colors but will also simplify the post-celebration cleanup.

6.Set with Powder:

After applying your special Holi makeup, seal it with translucent powder. The translucent powder not only helps your makeup last longer but also provides a barrier that makes it easier to wipe off any color residue. Think of it as a magic spell ensuring your vibrant Holi look stays intact throughout the day without compromising your skin. Use Uroparis Brush 113 to dust that powder and secure your glam.

Lastly, keep your makeup light. Use a BB cream or a tinted moisturizer instead of a heavy foundation and switch your lipstick with a lip stain or a balm. After the celebrations, make sure to remove your makeup quickly using a mild cleanser to gently eliminate the colors, followed by a nourishing moisturizer.
Remember, the key is to keep it simple and opt for products that are easy to remove. Happy Holi!
