Read on to know how to create a simple Holi makeup look for 2023:

Step 1: Start your Holi face makeup by applying sunscreen as you will be staying outdoors for a long time. Let the sunscreen absorb into your skin and then move on to the primer. This base makeup product will help you get a smooth texture and allow other makeup products such as foundation, and concealer to sit properly and create a flawless Holi look.

We recommend you to use L'Oréal Paris UV Defender Serum Protector Sunscreen Matte and Fresh, L'Oréal Paris Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer.

Step 2: Next, apply foundation and concealer (you can go for a darker shade of foundation for contouring). Focus on contouring the areas like the sides of your temples, the area under the jawline, side of the nose, and the hollows of your cheekbones. While applying concealer, your focal points would be under your eyes, above eyelids, T-zone, chin, nose bridge and other areas as needed. Add a hue to your cheeks by applying a blusher. Don’t forget to set the base of your Holi makeup look with setting spray. Pro tip: You must choose a long-lasting water-proof foundation to get the best result.

We recommend you to use a foundation from the L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24H Matte Cover Foundation range and a concealer from the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer range, and blusher from the L'Oréal Paris Le Blush Bar Matte range. For setting spray, you can go for L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray.
