Come Summer each year, we are all excited about the festival of colours. But we doubt, the same can be said about our skin! While you may be gearing up with all the preparations to Holi-proof your hair and skin with pre and post-festival skincare, have you thought about the actual day of the festival?

Putting on a full face of makeup is a terrible idea, as you don’t want to face the wrath of clogged pores and acne. But if stepping out of the house bare-faced is not an option, here is a simple look to help you look like a diva this Holi...

Primer to your rescue
 

Primer to your rescue

You don’t want to go overboard with your makeup, which is why primer is your holy-grail product for the festival day. It helps minimise the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores, giving your face an even finish. The Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer silky blur formula instantly brightens primes, softens blemishes and pores and creates a smooth skin surface. Also, a primer and a moisturiser is a great way to guard your skin for what’s coming its way.

Brow game strong!

Just properly filling in brows make a world of difference to your face. It gives definition to your features and is the easiest way to take years of your face in an instant. Try the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil, which has soft, long lasting water and smudge proof finish to achieve fuller brows.

Can’t say no to mascara
 

Can’t say no to mascara

While eyeshadows, eyeliners and kajals are things you should strictly avoid on the Holi day, there is no harm is flaunting those fluttery lashes. Ensure that your mascara is waterproof, as you don’t want it running down your cheeks with the first drop of water. The Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara - Night Drama increases length and adds fantastic volume to your eye lashes with just one sweep.

Lip gloss for the perfect pout
 

Lip gloss for the perfect pout

A matte lipstick may tend to look too OTT for the festivities and it will also dry your lips a lot more, thanks to all the Holi colours. Just sweep a little bit of the Lakmé Absolute Plump And Shine Lip Gloss in order to give your lips the perfect mix of colour and moisture. This will also guard your lips against the harmful effects of the colour.  

Don’t forget your nails
 

Don’t forget your nails

Painting your nails for the festival serves a dual purpose—it helps to make them look well-manicured and also prevents the colour from harming them. Paint your nails in a dark colour as you want to avoid pigmented and discoloured nails.
