Dear Beautiful, With the turn in weather, it’s time to change up your beauty routine. Here are my fave picks to give you fabulously soft locks, flawless-looking skin, perfect selfies and eyeliner that is on fleek. Load up on these March favourites to definitely add a spring to your step. With summer around the corner, it’s time for a splurge that you won’t regret!
1. Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
Fit Me is Maybelline India’s most recently launched range, and though their foundation is great too, my pick would be the concealer. Simply because a good concealer that blends well, covers flaws and brightens skin is hard to find, and this one does just that. Use it on top of your foundation to hide those dark circles and blemishes, just dab at it and it will blend well to give a natural, brightened finish. It’s a great addition to your makeup pouch! Price: Rs. 500. Buy it here.
2. Moroccanoil Treatment
You’ve thought about this so many times before, so just take the plunge and buy it. It may seem a little hefty on your wallet, but one bottle will last you for ages! Use a tiny bit on damp or even dry hair and see how its texture transforms to pure silk. Once you start using it, you’ll understand what all the hype is about and will realize how totally worth-it it is. This oil-based serum really does help cut down frizz, give shine and leave you with smoother-feeling locks. Some girls have even claimed that it’s helped their hair grow longer faster. What’s also so great about it is that it comes in 2 versions – the light one is for fine-haired girls so that it doesn’t weigh down their locks and the normal version is for all other hair types. Price: Rs. 2,655. Buy it here.
3. MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour
MAC lipsticks hold a special place in every girl’s heart, which is why you need to get your hands on their brand new range of lippies. Available in some show-stopping shades, it’s a creamy liquid that magically transforms into a silky, matte texture once on your lips. They provide a big splash of colour with a liquid-suede finish that won’t dry out your lips and stay on no matter what! I picked Divine-Divine because it’s a fun, flirty pink that really makes your pout pop and is suitable for the day and night. Hurry, because this new lipstick range is selling out like hot cakes!
Price: Rs. 1,800. Buy it any MAC outlet,
4. Garnier Eye Roll-On
Puffy eyes are a very real problem that all of us face. Whether it’s a temporary problem that you notice after a late night or something that has become more long-term, this super cool roll-on can help tone it down. Use it regularly to keep puffiness and dark circles in check for fresh, brighter eyes always. The ball instantly gives a cooling, soothing effect and it’s main ingredient caffeine works wonders on puffiness, while vitamin B5 hydrates. Oh, and did we mention how affordable it is?!You also get a tinted version, which acts as a BB cream/ concealer for the eyes to really brighten the area. Price: Rs. 199. Buy ithere.
5. Sephora Smart Liner
Girls, we know how important a good eyeliner is, and take it from someone who really has tried them all (yes, I’m kind of an eyeliner hoarder!), this is the best one yet! I’ve tried countless eyeliners from every possible brand, but this has quickly become my favourite. It’s got a unique shape, which makes it super easy to hold steady and maneuver – whether you're left or right-handed - and it is intensely dark and super long-lasting. Trust me, if you still haven’t managed to perfect those wings, this eyeliner could actually help you make it happen. It’s so easy to use and helps give a straight line every time. Somehow, it even makes the process of lining my eyes faster. It’s quickly become my favourite makeup product and one that I would recommend to girls everywhere. Price: Rs. 1,375. Buy ithere. With a glamorous pout, flawless eyeliner (and no dark circles), lush locks and a perfect complexion (fake it until you make it!), we hope you step into summer feeling fabulous!
