While you want to look presentable, you don’t have the time to go through an elaborate makeup routine every morning. Especially if you are new to the world of beauty and are still figuring out what is an absolute essential and what can be given a miss while putting together a quick daily look.

Well, guess what, your prayers have been answered! We’ve compiled a list of must-have makeup essentials every working woman should include in her daily makeup kit.

 

Creamy foundation

Depending on your skin texture and problems, you can either use a good coverage foundation or opt for a BB cream-and-concealer combination. If your skin is relatively clear with very few problems stick to BB cream and concealer. However, if you have uneven skin tone, we suggest choosing a creamy mousse foundation such as the Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse 16hr, which gives a long-lasting smooth matte-powder effect, perfect for a working day.
