- Accentuate your eyes
- Put on a darker lip shade
- Don’t forget to highlight
Avoid foundation from looking cakey
This is probably the lengthiest step, but it is so worth it. Never redo your foundation on already existing product that you’ve been wearing all day. This makes your makeup look cakey and may cause breakouts. Wash your face, wipe it clean and then apply a fresh coat of the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation With SPF 45 foundation for the flawless, dewy finish.
Put on the blush, baby
While your long lasting base makeup maybe on point, applying the right amount of blush makes all the difference to take your look from day to night. Apply a darker, more prominent shade, preferably with shimmer, such as the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Blush Shimmer Brick that will beautifully add a pop of your colour to your face.
Accentuate your eyes
To make your eye makeup more party appropriate, just sweep on some shimmer eyeshadow such as the Lakmé 9 To 5 Eye Quartet Eyeshadow - Silk Route for an effortless glam. But if you don’t have any eyeshadow on you, you can simply apply a thick layer of the Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal on your upper lid and immediately smudge it out for an intense smokey eye look. Just add some winged eyeliner and oodles of mascara for an added impact.
Put on a darker lip shade
While your nudes are apt for office, putting on a darker lip shade is an instant fix to look party ready. Just sweep on some of the Lakmé 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lip Stick in the shade Red Coat or Pink Post to add the right amount of sizzle.
Don’t forget to highlight
Highlighting your features will take you from drab to fab in a matter of seconds. Just sweep a generous amount of Lakmé Absolute Highlighter - Moon-Lit for an instant lift.
