With 2021 beauty trends in full swing, the one we're especially keen on is soft, natural-looking makeup with a barely-there, minimal base. Achieving a minimal base while still having an on-fleek lewk is easier than you think, and it's quicker too! So, if you want a 2021-approved makeup look that can help you transition seamlessly from work to date night while making you look on point, consider this it. Here's a 5 minute makeup look that you can accomplish with tinted moisturiser.
For your face...
Step 01: After you're done with cleansing and toning, let's jump right in to moisturising. Since we're trying to accomplish a 2021-approved natural makeup look, opt for a tinted moisturiser like the Lakmé Absolute Hydra Pro Tinted Moisturiser. With the goodness of hydrating pentavitin and hyaluronic acid, this sheer moisturiser will leave you with soft, supple skin, and a radiant glow.
Pro tip: For best results, ditch the brush when you apply the tinted moisturiser and spread it evenly on your face just using your fingers. You'll get a natural finish with an even coverage.
Step 02: Next, it's time to conceal — but we're going very, very light with the concealer so don't worry about this step. Simply dab on a little bit of the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer SPF 25 under your eyes, and on any spots that may require coverage.
Step 03: Since this is a 5 minute makeup look, we're not here to define your face fully. Instead, we're relying on the 2021-approved makeup technique, blush-draping, to help us out. Opt for the Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos - Coral Blush and using a brush, go in on the centre of your face — your nose, your cheekbones, and the apples of your cheek too, for a rosy, healthy glow.
Step 04: We want the base to look natural, so we recommend you set in the products with the Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist to refresh the skin and keep it hydrated. Added bonus: You can use it throughout the day to make your skin look refreshed!
For your eyes and lips...
Step 01: Keep the eyes lowkey, and go in with the same Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos - Coral Blush all over your eyelids. This is a quick, easy way to define your peepers and ensure that there's cohesion with the makeup.
Step 02: Make your lashes stand out with a few coats of the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara - Black. Your lashes will have a natural-looking volume, and stand out — even if you don't put on eyeliner.
Step 03: Finally, prime and paint your lips with the Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Lip Color - Dusty Pink for a rich colour payoff, and a natural looking matte that won't budge for hours on end. And that's it!
