Spending most of our time indoors has changed our perception of beauty. We no longer feel the need to layer on a heavy-duty foundation or give ourselves a sharper jawline using contour. The shift from concealing your flaws to embracing your natural beauty and accentuating it with minimal makeup is remarkable and much-needed.
And it’s not only the common folks and beauty mavens who’ve embraced their beautiful natural skin; our very own Bollywood celebrities too have ditched the whole shebang and are proudly posting selfies with minimal makeup on the ‘gram. This has given rise to the dewy makeup look that we’re currently obsessing over.
If you want to hop onto the bandwagon and flaunt dewy, fresh skin using minimal makeup, we’ve got you covered. Here are the only products you’ll need and how to use them to achieve this look.
- 01. Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer
- 02. Lakmé 9 to 5 Complexion Care Cream SPF 30 PA++
- 03. Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip Colour
- 04. Lakmé Absolute Highlighter – Moon Lit
- 05. Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Mini Liquid Lipstick
01. Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer
Since this is a minimal makeup look, it is really important to prep your skin the right way. After moisturising your face with a lightweight moisturiser, apply a pea-sized amount of the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer. Apply on areas that tend to get oily, like the T-Zone. This Lakmé face primer not only controls excess oil and sweat, but the ultra-light matte formula fills in your pores to give you even skin texture, allowing makeup to glide on smoothly.
02. Lakmé 9 to 5 Complexion Care Cream SPF 30 PA++
Ditch that heavy-duty, full coverage foundation and opt for something lightweight like the Lakmé 9 to 5 Complexion Care Cream SPF 30 PA++. This product does a great job at concealing skin imperfections without feeling cakey. Plus, it’s enriched with SPF 30 to protect your skin against sun damage.
03. Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip Colour
Blush makes you look youthful and fresh. Dot some of the Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip Colour onto your cheeks and blend in an outward and upward motion. The super lightweight mousse formula blends like a dream and sinks right into your skin to give you that natural flush of colour.
04. Lakmé Absolute Highlighter – Moon Lit
A dewy makeup look is incomplete without a highlighter. So go ahead and grab the Lakmé Absolute Highlighter – Moon Lit and swipe a tiny bit on to the highpoints of your face, such as your cheekbones, forehead, the bridge of your nose, the cupid’s bow and chin. Blend it all in, and there you go – goddess-like glow right there!
05. Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Mini Liquid Lipstick
Last but not least, pucker your pout using lipstick. You need a smudge-proof lipstick that won’t dry out the lips and is comfortable to wear. The Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Mini Liquid Lipstick ticks all the boxes. It has a beautiful velvety matte formula that stays on all day while being extremely comfortable.
