Makeup trends are cool, but they’re so difficult to pull off on a day-to-day basis. Honestly, no one wears neon eyeshadow or popsicle lips to work, or do they? When it comes to your everyday makeup look, usually less is more and most people want to apply just enough makeup to look fresh and glowing. 

Therefore, it is really important to have a basic makeup routine and a makeup kit that consists of really simple steps that accentuate your features while concealing those imperfections beautifully. We have created a step-by-step guide to help you nail a really simple everyday makeup look that you can recreate in a matter of minutes and what you can include in your make up kit. 

Best Makeup Kit for a Simple Makeup Routine: The Basics  

Here's a make up kit for ladies that you should consider to build your kit if you are a beginner. 


1. Primer

Step 01: Prep your skin

To ensure that your skin looks absolutely perfect, start with cleansing, toning and moisturising your face. Apply a generous amount of sunscreen and then apply a pea-sized amount of the Lakmé  Absolute Under Cover Gel Face Primer all over your face. This will help even out your skin texture and increase the wear time of your makeup. 


2. Base products

Step 02: Perfect the base

The next step is to create a flawless, natural-looking base. To do this, start by dotting your face with the Lakmé 9 to5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation and blend it into your skin using a makeup sponge. Next, use the Lakmé  Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer to further even out the skin and conceal imperfections, if any. If you have oily skin, then you can seal the base by dabbing a little bit of the Lakmé  Absolute White Intense Wet & Dry Compact on the areas that tend to get oily. 


3. Blush and highlighter

Step 03: Apply some blush and highlighter

A swipe of blush will add an instant lift to your face and make you look incredibly fresh. Simply take the Lakmé 9 to 5 Pure Rogue Blusher and apply it to the apples of your cheeks using a brush. If you want to add a little glow to your face, then take the highlighter from the Lakmé Absolute Highlighter – Moon-Lit and carefully apply a tiny bit to the high points of your face.


4. Eye makeup

Step 04: Dress up your eyes

For your eyes, start by applying the beige shade from the Lakmé  Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette - French Rose all over your lid. Next, apply a tiny amount of the Lakmé  Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal – Black and smudge it out to create a really pretty soft eye makeup. Repeat the same thing on your lower lid. Finish your eye makeup by applying two coats of mascara. 


5. Lipstick

Step 05: Colour your lips

For your lips, you can choose any colour that you like, but remember to line your lips for a more precise application. The Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Lip Colors has a great range of colours with 35 highlighted pigmented and work-ready shades that last up to 12 hours that touch-ups are now a thing of the past. They come with a built-in primer that sets a flawless matte base and evens out your lips.
