Raksha Bandhan seems like the perfect occasion to ask for a few splurge-worthy beauty products. While flattering your brother, friends and relatives with Rakhi wishes, take the opportunity and give a hint to them to pamper you because they can't say no! After all, who can say no to your pretty puppy face, right? If you don't have a brother, send this Rakhi gift idea wishlist for sister to the next best thing you have to a brother as a (not so subtle) hint and a constant reminder of the pampering you deserve for being a wonderful person all year long!
I've collated a list of some amazing makeup you should get your hands on, Raksha Bandhan or not - you won't regret buying these products.
1. The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser (Rs 1,845)
As the name suggests, this moisturiser will have you glowing and your blemishes fading. It's my secret weapon for having glowing, radiant skin all year long. Use it day and night for a few days and you'll see what I mean. And did I mention it smells like a tropical dream?
2. M.A.C Strobe Cream (Rs 2,700)
No conversation mentioning a glow is complete without throwing in this product. It will take your hangover skin from 0-100 in just one light layer. It's a moisturiser, an illuminator and a glow-getter all wrapped into one must-have product. Get your hands on this if you love luminous skin. You can wear it alone or under makeup.
3. Smashbox Super Fan Mascara - Black (Rs 1,950)
If you're looking for a good mascara, this is definitely worth the splurge. For all your no-makeup-makeup selfies, this mascara will volumize, lengthen and curl your lashes for a super fanned out lash effect. Flutter, flirt and puppy-eyes are a must after application.
4. Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF 15 (Rs 3,700)
A foundation that will get you through rain, shine and a tropical vacation - this one truly lives up to its claims. If you're looking to add a new skin tint into your makeup kit, go to the store and get shade matched before Raksha Bandhan! This foundation will stay in place all day while keeping you oil-free and matte and feels like nothing on the skin.
5. Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick - Jetsetter (Rs 1,650)
I have WAY too many lipsticks, said NO GIRL EVER! The Huda Beauty lipsticks have a water-like consistency, wear throughout the day and have some stunning shades. Check out some swatches online and ask bhai for a lippie or two! Who knows, his generosity may surprise you.
6. Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush (Rs 12,500)
If you have a VERY generous family (I'm totally jealous) this skincare brush is an INVESTMENT! I assure you that you will have the best skin of your life if you take cleansing seriously. This brush has been designed to be used in conjunction with your daily cleanser and it will bring life back to your skin. Lesser zits, lesser visits to the dermatologist and the best - lesser makeup!
Since I've piqued your interest a little bit with skincare, this is the perfect start and end to a GREAT skincare regime. This serum can be used day and night and you'll see a difference in your skin from the very first application. It's going to hydrate your skin while getting rid of fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and any other signs of ageing. Hello, elastic skin!
This gorgeous perfume shaped like a stiletto is more than just a dressing table topper. A little spritz of this and you will smell like a dream! It's seductive, mysterious, fruity, musky and extremely sexy all at once. And in a packaging like that, you definitely don't want to pass up on this scent.
Thanks and Happy Rakshabandhan in advance!
