5 simple ways to give your makeup kit a summer upgrade

Did you know that your vanity kit needs an upgrade every season, so you can get the right output and nail that perfect makeup? While you may be super loyal to your failsafe foundation or that liquid lipstick; summer is the time to make friends with some offbeat (often overlooked) products!

Summer can really bring your beauty game down. Precisely why, apart from following a summer special beauty regimen, you also need to add some necessary makeup products to your makeup bag to look your glamorous best in this humid weather. The following makeup swaps will solve all your summer beauty problems...


Swap kajal with waterproof (even colourful) eyeliner

Kajal pencils rule every girl’s vanity kit, no doubt! However, we suggest you take a break from them in the scorching summers as it can smudge and move easily when you sweat. Instead, opt for brightly coloured waterproof eyeliner that’ll add a fresh pop of colour to your look instantly. Get your hands on the Lakmé Absolute Shine Line Eye Liner - Sparkling Olive to take your glamour quotient a few notches higher.


Swap foundation with a tinted moisturiser

While full-coverage foundation works like magic in hiding dark spots, acne scars and discoloration, it can melt and look cakey during summer. When mixed with sweat, your foundation can cause clogged pores too. To avoid this hassle, it’s best to switch to a tinted moisturiser. The Ponds Flawless Radiance Derma+ BB Cream – Beige can be the perfect alternative to a foundation. This multi-tasker gives you natural coverage and at the same time protects your skin from the harsh sun rays.


Swap shimmer with matte bronzer

Layering shimmer on top of an already greasy base can make the end result look messy. Therefore, switch to a matte bronzer that’ll give you the perfect summer glow without looking too shiny. Unlike shimmer, a matte bronzer will create definition for a more natural look.


Swap matte lipstick with SPF-infused tinted lip balm

Moisturising is not just for your body; it’s important to keep your lips well-moisturised too. Make tinted lip balms your best friend this summer. For day looks, you can get your hands on the many shades from the Lakme Lip Love Chapstick collection which has SPF 15 and keeps your lips moisturised for up to 22 hours. If you wish to wear a matte lipstick for special occasions, then make sure you wear a hydrating lip balm under your lipstick so your lips don’t look dry and chapped.

Since summer is all about bright hues, it’s best to take a break from your regular mascara and include a few coloured mascara tubes in your makeup bag. From runway to red-carpet, coloured lashes are all the rage currently. So, stop procrastinating and get on board with the trend this summer. You can try the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara - Royal Blue to give your eye makeup a fresh new upgrade.
