Whether you’re on a road trip or flying off to your dream destination with your bestie, there is one thing you can’t compromise on — looking like a diva. And while we understand that a full-blown makeup routine is a far-fetched thought while you’re having the time of your life, what if we tell you that a quick few steps are all you need to look flawless? Don’t believe us? Read on as we list down a quick and easy makeup routine that can help you get that flawless makeup look, on the go…

Step 1: Apply an illuminating moisturiser

If you’re travelling, or are simply getting late for work in the morning, we suggest you ditch the heavy-duty foundations and turn to a good illuminating moisturiser like the Lakmé Lumi Cream to prep the skin and also get a lit-from-within glow. Just take a little bit of the moisturiser on your finger, dot it around your face and pat it into the skin. This lightweight moisturiser comes with a hint of a highlighter that adds a 3D glow to your face and blends effortlessly.

Step 2: Conceal blemishes and dark spots

Now, to give your skin a flawless finish, you need to dab on some Lakmé Primer + Matte Liquid Concealer on problem areas like under-eye dark circles, pigmentation around the mouth and blemishes. This lightweight concealer comes with a built-in primer that helps even out your skin tone and blends easily. It also minimises the appearance of pores and lends a matte finish. Thanks to its smooth, creamy texture and easy-to-use wand applicator, this concealer is perfect for when you’re on the go and can’t be bothered to use multiple brushes to apply and blend. Simply dot it on the problem area and blend using your ring finger. Easy-peasy!

Step 3: Perfect that blush and pout

We understand that you can’t carry your entire vanity case in your bag while travelling, and that’s where multi-purpose products like Lakmé 9to5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color - Nude Cushion come to the rescue. This blush-cum-lipstick is just what you need to add a natural blush to your cheeks and an intense matte colour to your lips. It is lightweight and extremely comfortable on the skin and most importantly, it is super easy to apply.

Step 4: Go easy on the eye makeup

Eye makeup needs patience, time and space - everything you can’t afford while you’re on the go! So, we suggest you ditch the entire eyeshadow-liner-kajal routine and simply swipe some Lakmé Eyeconic Volume Mascara to your lashes for those on-fleek lashes. This mascara is water-resistant and does not create clumps on the lashes. Simply applying 2-3 strokes of the product will instantly add volume to your lashes and give it an intense black finish finish.

Step 5: Set it with a compact

Finally, to bring together the whole look, just dab and blend the Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 40 PA+++ Compact on your face and neck and you’re good to go! This sunscreen compact contains SPF 40 PA+++ minerals that block 97% of harmful sun rays to protect your skin against sun damage and give it an ultra-matte finish. What more could you ask for?
