- 01. Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Aloe Vera Gel
- 02. Lakmé Absolute Undercover Gel Primer
- 03. Vaseline Original Pure Skin Jelly
- 04. Pears Pure & Gentle Soap Bar
- 05. Lakmé Absolute Gloss Artist Eye Liner
01. Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Aloe Vera Gel
All good things in makeup start with the right prep . The Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Aloe Vera Gel is a nourishing formula that is lightweight and non-sticky and imparts a dewy finish. Massage the gel gently on your eye area and work it in your brow hair to moisturise them and make them look glossy. Psst… the formula also protects your skin from environmental damage, making it an ideal gel to prep your face under makeup.
02. Lakmé Absolute Undercover Gel Primer
The Lakmé Absolute Undercover Gel Primer does more than give your makeup a long-lasting base. Infused with vitamin E and a smooth gel texture, the illuminating formula allows your skin to glow from underneath layers of makeup. Take your primer to your eye and brow area and apply in a dabbing motion for a glowy base.
03. Vaseline Original Pure Skin Jelly
The number of Vaseline Original Pure Skin Jelly hacks in skincare and beauty (sometimes even hair) cannot be counted! A hack that MUA’s often use for runway models is to swipe some petroleum jelly on their eyelids to give it a glossy finish. If you are a fan of super shiny eye makeup that looks like you have been dancing for hours at the club, you totally need to try this out!
04. Pears Pure & Gentle Soap Bar
Soap brows are coveted for a couple of reasons — they help tame unruly brow hair and give them a sleek, laminated finish. In addition to that, soap brows are also high on the shine and gloss factor. The glycerine in the soap turns your brows into a literal reflective surface. Take a spoolie and rub it on a dampened Pears Pure & Gentle Soap Bar. Brush your brows with the spoolie after applying your brow makeup to tame them and add shine!
05. Lakmé Absolute Gloss Artist Eye Liner
Matte liners might be easier to work with, and smudge, but glossy liquid liners are so much more fun! The Lakmé Absolute Gloss Artist Eye Liner comes with a fine tip that can be used to perfectly accentuate your eyes. The glossy and smooth liner can be used to create stunning graphic liner looks that are heavy on the shine and drama!
