New Delhi : If you don't wish to spend too much on an exhaustive make-up kit, you can always go the multi-purpose way with limited items to get a makeover, suggests an expert.

Beauty expert Ishika Taneja, who is also Executive Director of ALPS Group, has shared tips on managing make-up within a budget:

* Gel based kohl: You can create a smokey look with a smudged gel-based kohl on your eyes. Another benefit is that it can also be used as mascara to magnify the lashes to look long and thick. Define your eyes by using gel based kohl on water line as well as to line the lashes.

* Lipsticks: Your everyday brown lipsticks can double up as your bronzers and can help you do up your face in a jiffy.

A lip-gloss can be used to highlight your cheekbone. For this, take a pink and peach coloured lipstick on your fingers and tap it on your cheekbones. If you don't have a matching eye-shadow with the dress you want to wear, you not need worry -- choose a lipstick by matching your outfits and skin tone, and then apply on your eyes as eye-shadow.

A lipstick can also be great substitute of vermilion (sindoor) and bindi as well.

* Eyeliner: An eyeliner is not only to define your eyes and make them attractive, but it can even be used as a good optional make-up product. Kohl has for long been believed to be protection of your beauty from evil eyes. It can be used as an eyeliner, and now as so many brands of pencils are available in the market, these too easily work for kohl and liner both.

Eyeliner can be a good substitute of mascara also. For this, you need to apply eyeliner on eye lashes from down to up direction as you use mascara. But you need to keep it in mind to curl your lashes with a eyelash curler before using eyeliner as mascara.
