Cosmetic Essentials: The Holy Grail For Any Busy Woman

Written by Kaajal SinghSep 25, 2018

Are you a makeup lover? Do you love getting all dolled up, meticulously applying makeup on your face? Do you also have the time to do a full glam face every day before going to work?

That last question broke off the flow and dulled all the excitement, didn’t it?

All you busy boss ladies, we feel your plight!

We’ve carefully curated a list of four products that will instantly beautify your mornings and make your life all the simpler. What’s more, they’re perfectly travel-friendly and you can multitask with them as well. Just throw them into your handbag and you’ll be all set to get ready even on the go!

#1 A “Barely There” Foundation!

Foundations are extremely essential, especially if you have less-than-perfect skin. But let’s get real here; you don’t exactly have all the time to blend a heavy full coverage foundation in the morning i.e. if you love your sleep.

Going for a product that does the job of hiding your blemishes and gives you an even base without requiring a lot of time and effort to apply is the perfect thing to do. Go for a BB Cream or a CC Cream as they sit pretty light on the skin. You can go for a cushion foundation as well since there’s no danger of spilling with it. Take your pick of the shade from amongst the Lakme 9 to 5 Complexion Care CC Cream, the Lakme Face Magic Skin Tints Soufflé or the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation, as these are some of the best lightweight products out there in the market!

#2 Compact Powders For the Rescue!

Compact powders are a must have in the bag of every woman stepping out of her house. All the sweat, humidity and constantly touching your face wears off your base. It’s quite obvious that your makeup will need touching up some time around midday. How handy would it be to have travel-sized compact powder in your bag!

Not only does compact powder give your skin a smooth glow and help set your foundation so that it lasts longer, it also helps conceal open pores, another consequence of travelling on hot, sunny days.

You can always opt for the Lakme Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 40 Pa+++ Compact since it comes with SPF, providing your face with protection against the harmful UV rays of the sun as wel!

#3 Mascara For The Fluttery Lashes!

The mascara is one product that we women just cannot live without. They instantly provide so much more definition to your eyes, making your eyelashes look gorgeously lush and fluttery. Make sure that you keep mascara in your handbag always, as you never know when your eyes might need some touching up!

Also, if you’re looking to have curly eyelashes that never seem to end, try the Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara. On the other hand, if you’re looking for something to lengthen your lashes, the Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara is definitely your thing.

#4 2-3 Different Lipsticks For The Perfect Pout!

Raise your hands if you too are a lipstick hoarder and simply cannot stick to just “One” shade!

Whenever possible, carry at least a couple of lip shades in your handbag. You might need to re-apply your lipstick every 3 to 4 hours or maybe, you might just feel like applying a different shade after a while, as per your mood or the occasion. It’s quite impossible to tell when and where you might need a change of colour, so always keep a few handy.

You can now choose your favourite shades from the new Lakme Kareena Kapoor Khan Absolute Pout Definer Collection and carry them along with you wherever you go!

Also, don’t forget you can use your lipstick as a blush. (Psst! This one’s a hack.)
