Hair And Makeup Combos That Work Best

Written by Chandni GhoshFeb 07, 2018
The unapologetic lovers of beauty that we are, we devote quite a bit of our time to doing our hair and makeup. But do we truly know what the perfect hairstyle and makeup combos are? If you’ve always wondered about the face that goes with a particular hairdo, these cues should help you out...

Tucked in hair and bushy brows

Top knot and red lips

FYI, hair that’s tucked in is still topping the beauty charts. Just make sure your hair looks silky smooth when you tuck it in. When you tuck it in, you’ll create a middle parting and it will automatically put your brows in focus. It is ideal to fill in your brows and flaunt them. Keep the rest of the look natural because you’ll want those power brows to do the talking.

BB pro tip: The Lakmé Eyebrow Pencil should help you fill in your brows perfectly.


The retro lob and cat eye liner

Nothing screams vintage like the good ol’ cat eye liner. Go for a vintage hairdo like a lob with bangs and add a cat eye liner to your eyes. This will help you achieve the retro look perfectly.

BB pro tip: Once you’re done with the hairstyle, use the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Artist Liner in Black to finish off the cat eye look.


Sleek ponytail and smokey eyes

Before you opt for a sleek ponytail, make sure you wash your hair with a shampoo and conditioner that leaves your locks smooth and silky. A sleek ponytail is one of the sexiest hairdos on the beauty block and only sultry eyes with smokey-eyed makeup can do justice to the look. You can either go for blue, brown or even the regular black smokey eyes for this look.

BB pro tip: To get the super sleek hairdo on point, wash your tresses with the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner. To get the perfect sultry eyes, opt for the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eyeshadow Palette in Silver or Gold.


Messy bun and highlighter

When it comes to buns, the messy knot is the easiest and quickest way to nail a hairstyle. Since this one involves tying your hair down, the high points of your face are in focus and hence, a product like the highlighter will work like magic. Just add some highlighter to your face and keep the rest of the look fuss-free.

BB pro tip: To give the high points of your face a hint of shimmer, opt for the Lakmé Absolute Moon-Lit Highlighter that will add the right amount of sparkle to your skin giving you a dewy finish.


Top knot and red lips

Getting late for an evening out with friends but don’t want your hair and makeup to suffer? Opt for the good ol’ top knot and just add that red lipstick to your puckers. Nothing says cool like the top knot and red lips combo!

BB pro tip: To get the perfect red pout, we suggest you opt for the Lakmé Absolute Lip Pout in Raving Red. It’s matte, it’s red hot—what else could one ask for?
