Most of us don’t have flawless skin. While we’re working hard towards that, we also always rely on good base makeup to help us conceal our blemishes and dark circles. But those aren’t the only powers of base makeup. It also helps us achieve that natural, airbrushed finish we always want. This means gorgeous skin and perfect selfies! So if you’re looking to fill your college vanity pouch with a few but right kinda base makeup, here’s a roundup of what you need...

Once you’ve moisturised your skin, the first step to base makeup is using a primer. A primer helps your makeup set and also keeps your skin shine-free. We’ve been using the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Primer and we’ve got to say, the results have been rather satisfactory. Along with ensuring that the skin doesn’t look greasy, this one also covers enlarged pores and preps your skin for foundation.

An everyday cream

If you want an everyday base that not only moisturises your skin but also gives you a decent amount of coverage, rely on a BB cream. A must for every college girl, a BB cream is your best bet when it comes to everyday use. If you’re looking for the perfect BB cream, we suggest going with the Pond’s White Beauty BB+ cream that comes with a powerful mix of Vitamin B3, Vitamin E and SPF 30 and provides instant coverage and all day radiance!

There are plenty of concealers available in the market but we’re loyal towards stick concealers. Why? They’re easy to apply, especially if you’re travelling by public transport to get to college. If you’re in search of the right concealer, we suggest getting your hands on the Lakmé White Intense Concealer Stick with SPF 20. This one comes in fair and medium shades that give you coverage along with protection from the sun. Sun protection and good coverage—what else do you need!

A sheer foundation

If you’ve just started college, you’re already quite perturbed with the weather—the rains and the constant humidity are only making your skin irritable. In such times, you need a lightweight foundation that doesn’t feel cakey on your skin yet gives you the coverage you need for an everyday look. For this, we suggest relying on the Lakmé 9-5 Weightless Mousse Foundation that not only feels feathery light but also gives your skin the radiance you always wanted. This foundation is available in four shades—Beige Vanilla, Beige Caramel, Rose Ivory and Rose Honey.

A smooth compact

Base makeup without a compact? Now, that’s so incomplete. A compact helps you set your base and also keeps your skin from looking oily. If you’re looking for the perfect compact, we suggest going with the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact that stays for as long as 16 hours while giving you a smooth finish. That’s not all, it also gives you SPF 17, which protects your skin against the harmful UV rays.
