Kajal has to be every girl’s first makeup purchase. If you’re starting college, then we totally recommend buying yourself the Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal – Deep Black. This kajal has a 22-hour smudge and waterproof formula, which means that it’s going to stay right in place throughout the day.

College means a lot of sleepless nights thanks to completing assignments last minute, pulling all-nighters to study for tests as well as staying up late gossiping with friends. This means instant under eye bags and circles. To help you cover the exhaustion and fake a good night’s sleep, you would need a medium coverage concealer such as the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer. This product not only helps conceal the problem areas but also brighten your face so that you look absolutely radiant.

BB Cream

Foundations offer high coverage, and for college you should mostly be looking for something that provides a lightweight, sheer finish. This is where BB creams prove to be a blessing in disguise as they offer a much lighter coverage, but it’s still plenty to give you an even tone and natural finish. The Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Cream works at concealing the dark spots on your face and comes with a ton of skin nourishing properties.

Lip gloss

A lip gloss is the perfect way to pamper your pout without looking OTT. Since they are enriched with lip moisturising properties, they are the perfect addition to your college vanity kit. We totally recommend the Lakmé Lip Gloss as it offers a hint a colour, super soft lips and an incredibly high shine.

Blushes are the perfect way to give your cheeks a pop of colour and take a regular look from drab to fab! The Lakmé Face Sheer Blusher has a highly pigmented formula that delivers an intense colour pay off. The best part about this blush is the sponge applicator that delivers a hassle-free application.
