New Delhi, Jan 22, 2017: A perfectly applied, correct shade of foundation can change the entire look of a person, camouflaging all imperfections on the face. But often people don’t know their right shade. Start by trying shades in full daylight, says an expert.

Bharti Taneja, Cosmetologist-Aesthetician and Founder-Director of ALPS Beauty Group, has listed tips to figure out a perfect foundation shade for your skin type so that you never go wrong again:

* According to skin-tone: It’s preferable to try your shade in full

It’s preferable to try your shade in full day light, while not solely depending upon the lighting of the cosmetic store you’re buying the product from.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

You may try and test the foundation shade by applying it on the skin between your thumb and index finger. To be double sure, try applying it on your cheeks and see if it’s matching with your skin-tone.

* According to skin-type:

Normal Skin: Your foundation choice may range variously from tinted moisturiser to mineralised bases. Just choose the one for you depending upon the coverage desired and the occasion.

Oily Skin: As oily skin already secretes enough oil, try avoiding oil-based foundations to avoid bleeding of makeup and keep patchiness at bay. Instead, you can go for oil-free or matte formulations for a flawless finish of make-up. Also, you should remember to set the base with a matching or transparent compact powder to look gorgeous all day long.

Dry Skin: Dry skin needs extra moisture; therefore it is always advisable to go for rich moisturizing bases or foundations that cover all the flaws of the face while adding the much-needed moisture too.

A tinted moisturizer is best if you want light coverage or if you require heavy or full coverage, you can go for oil-based or creamy foundations.

* According to weather:

A tinted moisturiser is a good option for winters while mousses or souffle are considered best for summer season. So be weather-wise and be beautiful. (IANS)

As per Hindu myth, on “Devipaksha”, the Gods and the Goddesses began their preparations to celebrate “Mahamaya” or Goddess Durga, who was brought upon by the trinity- Brahma, Vishnu, and Maheshwara; to annihilate the fierce demon king named Mahishasura. The captivating story of the Goddess defeating the demon got popularized with the goddess being revered as “Durgatinashini” or the one who banishes all the evils and miseries of the world. The victory of the Goddess is celebrated as ‘Durga Puja’.

The program is inseparable from Mahalaya and has been going on for over six decades till date. The magic is induced by the popular Birendra Krishna Bhadra whose voice makes the recitation of the “Chandi Kavya” even more magnificent! He has been a legend and the dawn of Mahalaya turns insipid without the reverberating and enchanting voice of the legendary man.

Mahalaya will keep spreading the magic and setting the vigor of the greatest festival of the Bengalis- the Durga Puja, to worship the supreme Goddess, eternally.
