The best thing about working from home is that you can work in your comfiest pyjamas, have third-day hair tied up in a bun and save yourself the effort of covering up those under-eye circles, thanks to late-night Netflix binge.
While wearing makeup every day may not be the need anymore, it sure helps to have a go-to work from home makeup routine to look presentable on the days you need to attend video meetings. But if you haven’t already curated your go-to WFH makeup kit, or feel like changing things up a bit, then this article has got you covered! Read on for five must-have makeup products to take your WFH look from drab to fab in no time…
01. BB Cream
Wearing full coverage foundation on a video call is unnecessary. You need something lightweight that helps even out the skin tone and conceals skin imperfections to make you look radiant. And what better product to do all this than a BB cream like the Ponds White Beauty BB+ Cream SPF 30 PA++. This BB cream is perfect for concealing minor imperfections and gives your skin a brighter and radiant finish.
Adding just a hint of colour to your cheeks is a sure-shot way to perk up a dull and tired-looking complexion. Simply swipe a little bit of the Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos right onto the apples of your cheeks for a rosy, healthy flush that will make you look fresh and well-rested.
A great way to make your eyes look bigger and brighter is to sweep on some lengthening and curling mascara such as the Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara. Even if you end up skipping the eyeshadow and eyeliner, merely applying some mascara will open up your eyes to make you look brighter.
Face looking a bit dull and lifeless? Well, this is why you need to include a highlighter in your WFH makeup kit. Simply swipe some of the Lakme Absolute Highlighter – Moon Lit onto the high points of your face such as the cheekbones, forehead, the bridge of your nose, cupid’s bow and chin for an instantly bright and glowing complexion.
Last but not least, it always helps to keep a nude lipstick you love in your makeup kit. A nude lip colour such as the Lakme Cushion Matte Lipstick - Nude Toast won’t look too stark or overpowering on video calls. A single swipe of this comfortable matte lipstick will coat your lips in opaque colour and tie your entire look together beautifully.
