Simran Chawla, pageant winner Princess India 2017 shares a few tips to look gorgeous for this Diwali.

I love to dress up and wear makeup but too much spoils the beauty of it. When you apply foundation, try and spread it all over your face evenly so that only one part of your face does not look done heavily with makeup. I apply Kajal whenever I go outdoors, and I do it by counting. So if I’am applying Kajal thrice on my right eye, I apply the same number on my left eye too! I apply lipsticks only on special occasions. I do the same numbering trick while applying lipstick on my upper and lower lip as well- Simran Chawla, Princess India 2016

    Kritica Purohit was the finalist at a beauty contest and she too believes simple is best.

    “Blind people must be extra cautious while wearing makeup. They must also be comfortable with the products and it must be accessible. For instance, mascaras are something which is not easily accessible to a blind person. You always need help when you wear mascara because chances are high of it smudging all over your eyes when you do it on your own. So do for what is comfortable. You can always consult professionals who will guide you through the right path in applying makeup”, says Purohit.
