Makeup for the day time should be bare minimum as you do not want to attract attention by an overload of makeup which ends you up looking like a character out of a television-soap.
Applying kohl is a must as it helps you define your eyes. Ditch the mascara and instead opt for a neutral shade of eye shadow to do up your eyes. Refrain from using blushes as a light cover up of foundation is enough to hide any imperfections. Use a lipstick and may be team it up with a little gloss to give brightness to your face. Soft makeup is always the best bet for daytime. Avoid shimmer and dark colors during the day.
