Let’s admit it! Looking perfectly polished and fabulous at all times is no easy feat. It requires a good amount of time every morning and at the same time a helluva lot of effort.

Ever wondered how most women manage to look gorgeously chic and polished even when they’re wearing something casual, and not in a try-hard way? Well, to help you unfold the mystery of how to look beautifully put together (even when your life is falling apart), here are 5 tricks to keep your beauty game going strong at all times... Here are some beauty hacks.

 

Find yourself a go-to eyeshadow palette

Finding an eyeshadow palette that can give you both a neutral everyday look and a glamorous party look can be a big boon in your life. While you can pull off a nude eyeshadow confidently at work; a little blending can give you a smokey look that you can wear to a party. We suggest you get your hands on the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette - French Rose that comes with 6 versatile shades that blend beautifully.

 

Stock up on dry shampoo

Dry shampoo is the one beauty product every girl needs in her vanity kit. Want that stunning blowout to last one more day? Dry shampoo is the answer! Simply spritz some dry shampoo on the roots and finger-comb your hair. A volumising dry shampoo will not just tame your tresses but also add much-needed volume to your flat mane.

Keep foundations close and budge-proof foundations closer

Keep foundations close and budge-proof foundations closer

Your busy schedules can leave you with hardly any time for mid-day touch-ups. To avoid the hassle of makeup meltdowns, we suggest you invest in a budge-proof foundation, one with a buildable matte formula that is shine-free and stays on for longer. This will make you look put-together throughout the day. Try the Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse 16hr—it feels weightless on the skin, protects skin against sun damage with SPF 8 and blends smoothly to leave a matte powder-like effect.

 

Keep a few cute hair accessories handy

Cute hair pins or printed headbands can instantly update your look. They make for the perfect quick fixes on a bad hair daythereby making you look well put together. On days when your hair is frizzier than usual, throw on a headband and tie the rest of your hair in a bun for a chic, cool-girl look. Whereas on days when your hair feels greasier, wear it in a sleek hairstyle and stack a few bobby pins or cute clips to hold the look in place.
