5 makeup staples to include in your vanity before you go minimal in 2021

One makeup trend that is touted to get huge in 2021 is going au naturel or minimal with our makeup routines. According to experts, the focus will be more on skincare, except for using just enough makeup to look presentable when stepping out. Therefore, this means that most of the makeup products we have been hoarding will most likely be redundant.

But we understand if you are confused about what products to keep or buy and which ones to toss out. And that’s precisely what we are here to help you with. If you plan to follow this makeup trend and go minimal with your makeup routine in 2021, then here are five products that you definitely should have in your kitty…


01. CC creams

Lip and cheek tint

Let’s accept it – wearing a foundation every day can be a tedious task with all the layering and blending. Besides, using a heavy-duty foundation daily can clog the pores and lead to breakouts. Hence, it’s time to replace your go-to everyday foundation with a lightweight CC cream like the Lakme 9 to 5 CC Color Transform Face Cream SPF 30 PA++. It helps brighten the face, covers skin imperfections to an extent and even provides skincare benefits such as moisturisation and sun protection. Need we say more?


02. Concealer

Lip and cheek tint

For days when you need a little extra coverage, you can always turn to your trusty tube of concealer. We love the Lakme Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer for this purpose. It offers medium to buildable coverage, covering even the most stubborn dark circles and blemishes to give your skin a flawless finish without the cakiness.


03. Eyeliner

Lip and cheek tint

A great and minimal way to play up your eyes and draw attention to them is with a simple flick of eyeliner. It opens up your eyes and makes you look well put-together instantly. The Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal is perfect for this job. The rich, smooth and pigmented formula works well as both, eyeliner and kajal, and the smudger provided at the other end helps in creating a beautiful smokey effect.


04. Mascara

Lip and cheek tint

No eye makeup look, no matter how elaborate or simple, is ever complete without mascara. It helps opens up your peepers and makes you look wide awake. The Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara has a really lightweight formula that adds a lot volume to your lashes to make them look long, fluttery and perfectly curled, without clumping.


05. Lip and cheek tint

Lip and cheek tint

The final product you should have in your kitty, irrespective of whether you plan to go minimal or not, is a lip and cheek tint such as the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color. This lightweight product not only makes for an amazing lipstick and blush but can also be used as a creamy eyeshadow for a quick monochrome makeup look.
