Do you have large pores that seem to amplify every time you put on makeup? Or rough skin texture that just ends up making your makeup appear cakey? Well, you’re in luck, lovelies, for we are going to help you achieve a smooth and flawless makeup look, minus the texture. Read on for an easy-peasy step-by-step guide on how to achieve a smooth and flawless base in five simple steps.
- Step 1: Use a primer to even out your skin
- Step 2: Opt for a matte foundation
- Step 3: Next up, concealer
- Step 4: Dab some setting powder
- Step 5: Add a matte blush
Step 1: Use a primer to even out your skin
A primer will help conceal the appearance of large pores and smoothen out skin texture to make your foundation glide on seamlessly. Apply tiny dots of the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer all over your face and blend it with a damp makeup sponge for a flawless look. The primer will also help your makeup stay in place and last longer. So don’t skip it, ladies!
Step 2: Opt for a matte foundation
For a flawless makeup look, we suggest using a matte foundation. A dewy foundation will only enhance your pores, which is something we don’t want. So, dot the Lakmé Absolute Skin Natural Mousse on your face and blend it in using a damp beauty sponge. This mousse foundation feels super light on the skin and gives a natural-looking finish. It also comes in nine diverse shades that are perfect for Indian skin tones.
Step 3: Next up, concealer
Once the foundation is set, it’s time to take the next step. Use the Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Mousse Concelear to conceal skin imperfections like dark spots and blemishes on your skin. This concealer contains fine powder that helps blur fine lines and lends a medium to high coverage with a smooth matte finish.
Step 4: Dab some setting powder
To make sure your makeup stays in place and doesn’t budge, it’s time to dab some of the Lakmé 9to5 Naturale Finishing Powder all over your face. Infused with aloe vera and green tea extracts, this lightweight finishing powder gives your skin a smooth, oil-free matte look.
Step 5: Add a matte blush
The trick to faking smooth, texture-free skin is staying away from any shine-inducing products. Why? Because they reflect light and will only end up accentuating the texture. So, instead of going for an illuminating blush and bronzer, we recommend going for a matte blusher to complete your look. Take a fluffy brush, swirl it in the Lakmé 9to5 Pure Rouge Blusher, apply it on the apples of your cheeks, and blend it nicely. The matte blusher blends in easily and lends a luminous, silky matte finish to your cheeks.
