Step 1

Prep your face with the Lakmé CC cream to achieve a flawless look and an even skin tone.

Step 2

Use a concealer to cover your dark circles and other blemishes on your face. Make sure you blend and pat on the concealer to ensure it looks smooth and natural. A good suggestion is the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Stick with SPF. You can apply this with the help of a concealer brush for optimum coverage.

Step 3

Apply a small amount of the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Foundation in a shade that’s best suited for your skin tone. Do this with a foundation brush and make sure it blends well all over your face and neck.

Step 4

Set your makeup with the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Compact Powder and layer on as much as is necessary, so your makeup stays in place and appears natural.

Step 5

For a little colour, apply the Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duo in Coral Blush. Dust it onto the apples of your cheeks and then move the brush upwards along the lines of your cheekbones for a hint of natural colour.

So now that you have your face makeup base in place, we advise you to add to your beauty look  by going in for a chic hair updo. Tie your hair in a messy bun to earn compliments.
