Step 01: Ditch liquid foundations for a BB cream
First things first. Liquid foundation cannot be your best friend on rushed mornings. While it gives high coverage and leaves you with a smooth, natural finish, it requires more time and effort. With liquid foundations, you need to ensure that you spend at least three to five minutes blending it well or else your makeup will end up looking cakey and patchy. But who’s got the time for that?
Therefore, reach out for a BB cream such as the Ponds White Beauty BB+ Cream. This BB cream is good news for makeup lovers. It hides skin imperfections, protects your skin from the harsh UV rays and gives you an even tone and a natural finish. Simply use your fingers and apply it evenly on your face and neck. Voila!
Step 02: One lipstick for your entire face makeup
Did you know that one lipstick can actually help you do your entire makeup? Yes, you read that right. If you want to achieve a fresh-faced look, then get your hands on a pink lipstick such as the Lakmé Absolute Matte Revolution Lip Color - 203 Shocking Pink. If you want to go experimental, then reach for an orange or coral lip shade such as the Elle 18 Color Pop Matte Lip Color - Lets Tango. And, if you want to keep it earthy, then pick a brown lip colour such as the Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color - Cocoa Soft.
Simply go over with your favourite colour onto your lids, cheeks and lips. Use your fingers to blend the colours well. You won’t just achieve a monochrome look but also finish off your look in less than two or three minutes.
Step 03: Use kajal as eyeliner or go in with mascara
If you want to further define your eye makeup, then choose between kajal and mascara. We suggest you get your hands on the Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal - Deep Black. On some days, you can use it on your waterline and on others, you can wear it as a liner. Alternatively, you can use the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara - Black in place of a kajal on other days.
There you go—a 3-step easy-peasy makeup routine that can get you ready in only 5 minutes!
