Primer + Foundation + Powder
Lakme’s three-in-one powder foundation is a multitasking product which gives the benefits of a primer, foundation and powder- all in one! The primer conceals fine lines, foundation blends in smoothly and the powder gives a matte finish which stays put for hours together. Perfect!
Blusher + Bronzer + Illuminator
Every girl should get a makeup palette like this that containing a blusher, bronzer and an illuminator. This not only saves times but is also compact enough to carry while travelling for destination wedding. It is also an ideal palette for beginners who are trying to explore make-up for the first time.
Lash & Brow Clear Mascara
Prime your lashes, comb your eyebrows and swipe down the baby hair to pretty up those lashes. This clear mascara not only results in flawless looking lashes but also stays on for a longer time. The clear gel mascara can double up as a brow definer, which is always a plus!
Yes, you read it right! You can use the brown eyeliner pencil to not only line your lashes and colour your brows but also as a soft brown eyeshadow. This can be done by scribbling it all over your lids or on your eye crease and then smudging the pigment carefully. You could also blend it along your cheekbones to contour them subtly.
We all know the humble translucent powder to be an epic oil absorber. But did you know that it has multiple benefits too? A translucent powder acts as an eraser that helps in toning down your blusher or even your bronzer. This really helps when you don’t have the time to use a make-up remover and reapply the greasepaint. It also works as a lash thickener and a matte lipstick converter. Yes, you could thank us later!
Multi Purpose Illuminator
Benefit’s Watts Up illuminator can be used to highlight the arch of your brows. A pinch of the product can even be applied on the high points of your cheeks and your décollage area to add that subtle hint of sparkle.
Cheek & Lip Stain
This rose-hued face tint is a popular favourite! Firstly, it is has a simple application. Secondly, it can be used on the cheeks as well as on the lips to get a natural looking flush on your skin. What’s more, since it is a stain, it easily lasts all day.
NYX’s wonder stick is a dual ended contouring stick that beautifully blends into the skin. The lighter side of the stick can be used as a highlighter to brighten up the cheekbones and the brow bone while the darker side can be used to contour your face.
