Bb Beauty Hack—Using Every Makeup Product In More Ways Than One

Written by Chandni GhoshOct 23, 2018
Oh, how we love living in a time when makeup keeps evolving, and every now and then, we witness a new product that transforms us completely! But what’s true of makeup is also that most of our fave products can be used in more ways than one—something that makes them so much fun! We headed to our favourite makeup zone—the Lakmé Pro Stylist Studio in Phoenix Mills, Lower Parel, Mumbai where makeup artist Sanjana Bhandari showed us what these products are and how you can incorporate them into getting a new look. Read on to find out.

Lakmé CC Cream + Lakmé Absolute White Intense Skin Cover Foundation = Lightweight base for the day

Think a foundation is too heavy for the day outing and a CC cream is too light? Mix them both to create the perfect lightweight foundation! After having mixed both Lakmé CC Cream and the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Skin Cover Foundation, the consistency will become lighter than your regular foundation. The CC cream will moisturise your skin while the foundation will help you hide blemishes and dark spots. Apply this combo evenly on your face and neck and there you have it—the perfect base for makeup.

Lakmé Eyeconic Brown = Bold brows

When it comes to kohl, we never doubt the magic of the Lakmé Eyeconic, right? Deep, smudge proof and so sexy—it works beautifully on the eyes. But that’s not the only power it can boast of. The Lakmé Eyeconic Brown doubles up as a brow stick easily! But before that use the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick below the brow to ensure that the bold brows stand out. Now for the Lakmé Eyeconic: Don’t use it directly on the brows as that will come on too heavy and make the brows look artificial. You can apply some of it on an angular brush and then use it on the brows. The key is to apply the colour on the start of your brows and then use the brush to spread it. This will look natural yet give you the power brows you always wanted!

Lakmé Absolute Lip Pout in Tangerine Touch = Cheek tint

Vibrant and matte—the Lakmé Absolute Lip Pouts are a bunch of colourful lippies that lend you that perfect pout. But that’s not all they can do for you. The Lakmé Absolute Lip Pout in Tangerine Touch can easily double up as cheek tint, giving you that hint of colour on your face highlighting your cheekbones. Take a little quantity of the colour on your index finger, smile wide and apply the colour on to your cheek, spreading it in the upwards direction on your cheekbones... and voila! You have on your cheeks the perfect tint!

Lakmé Pure Rouge Blusher = Contouring powder

Always envied model-like cheekbones and chiseled faces? Here’s a sculpting trick if you don’t have a bronzer—use the Lakmé Pure Rouge Blusher in Rose Crush, a brownish shade with pink undertones that works wonders in contouring the face. This one can be used on any skin tone and is a darker blush compared to others, so it can easily be used as a contouring powder. Take some of it on your powder brush and apply it a little below your cheekbones and on the corners of the face, so it gives your visage that oval shape and makes it look sharp.
