Here's a newsflash: It's not just skincare that contributes to making your skin look radiant. If you're following your skincare routine to the T and still fall short of getting glowing skin by the time you do your makeup, it may be time to switch up your makeup routine. Your skin can look radiant with the help of a few makeup tips that'll make your skin go from looking dull to luminous.
Ahead, we're listing down a few simple makeup tips that will help your skin look radiant, even if you're having a bad skin day. Read on for more, and take notes!

- 05. Set, set, set!
01. Use an illuminating base
One of the easiest ways to get radiant skin with makeup is to use an illuminating moisturiser. Give the mattifying moisturisers a miss this time, and opt for the Lakmé Lumi Cream. The unique moisturiser couples the benefits of makeup and skincare, to give you an instant 3D glow thanks to the Korean pink pearl extracts in it. Applying it on your skin before you move onto foundation will give you a subtle, almost lit-from-within glow that's otherwise hard to attain.
02. Go for a dewy foundation
If you want a radiant makeup look, you need a foundation that can give you a radiant finish! Use the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation for a natural, dewy finish that will even out your skin tone and cover all blemishes without looking dull. Plus, it's got the added benefits of argan oil and sun protection, too, in case you need further conviction!
03. Highlight generously
... and at the right places! If you want to cop that glow, make sure you highlight the high points of your face — your cheekbones, the tip of your nose, your brow bone, and your Cupid's bow. For best results, start by using a liquid illuminator like the Lakmé Lumi Cream and set it with the lighter shades of the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Blush Shimmer Brick for a blinding glow that looks gorgeous.
04. Don't forget about your lids
If you want to bring in the glow, you need to do something about your lids too! The one glow-inducing eyeshadow trend we're absolutely loving is glossy lids, so here's how you can do it. Take the darker brown shade from the Lakmé 9 to 5 Eye Color Quartet Eye Shadow - Smokey Glam and sweep it all over your lid. Next, opt for the Lakmé Absolute Spotlight Gloss - Creme Caramel, and layer it on top of the eyeshadow. You'll be left with radiant, natural-looking lids to boot!
05. Set, set, set!
If you want your makeup to stay in place all day without budding, you need to set it. But using a powder foundation will mattify your complexion, thereby defeating the purpose. Your best is to spritz on a setting spray to lock your makeup in place. Hold 5-6 inches away from your face and spray 2-3 times. You can dab your face with a damp beauty sponge while the mist dries — this helps lock the product in and keeps the glow intact.
