Makeup Routine for Smooth, Glowing Skin: Step-by-step
Step #1: Prep it up!
For your makeup to last all day without creasing or smudging, it's crucial to prepare your skin beforehand. This involves cleansing your face and moisturising it with the right product. The Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Day Cream is an excellent choice for this purpose. Not only is it light and non-greasy, but it also gets readily absorbed by the skin. Additionally, it has a high SPF content, providing complete protection against harmful UV rays. Using a day cream like this one help keep your skin nourished and moisturised, making it smoother and more supple. Furthermore, day creams provide an excellent base for applying makeup, allowing it to glide on smoothly and flawlessly. So, make sure you add this magical solution to your skin care routine before makeup to achieve glowing, healthy skin.
Step #2: Better the base
When it comes to creating a glowing makeup look, the base is arguably the most crucial part. To achieve the perfect dewy finish, it's essential to use the right products and techniques. One of the best ways to achieve a lit-from-within glow is by mixing the Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation with a small drop of the Lakmé Absolute Liquid Highlighter. This magical combination creates a luminous base that helps your skin look radiant and healthy. After mixing the products together, apply the mixture to your face and neck and use a beauty blender to blend it evenly. This technique helps to create a flawless, seamless finish that will leave your skin looking naturally radiant.
Step #3: Concealer corner
Achieving a glowing look requires concealing all the blemishes, spots, dark circles, and imperfections on your face. That's why a high-quality concealer like the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer SPF 25 is essential for your makeup routine. By applying this concealer under your eyes, you can effectively hide dark circles and brighten up your entire face. Additionally, you can use it on your eyelids as a base to help your eyeshadow stay in place and appear more vibrant. Plus, with SPF 25, this concealer offers protection against the harmful effects of the sun while helping to perfect your skin.
So, whether you're trying to conceal dark circles, blemishes, or imperfections, the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer SPF 25 is an excellent choice for achieving a flawless, glowing complexion. Don't hesitate to try it out and see the stunning results for yourself.
Step #4: Highlighter again!
To achieve that sought-after dewy look, reach for the trusty Lakmé Absolute Liquid Highlighter once more. Simply dab a few dots onto your nose, cheekbones, brow bone, and cupid's bow and blend it thoroughly. This highlighter has a lightweight and non-sticky formula that smoothly spreads over your skin to give it a luminous radiance. With its easy and even application, you'll be shining like a star in no time.
Step #5: For the love of lips
To complete your glowing makeup look, don't forget to add some colour to your lips. For a perfect match with your dewy skin, we recommend using Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color in the shade Pink Drama. This liquid lip colour provides a smooth, velvety texture and long-lasting wear with its intense matte finish. To add an extra touch of shine and fullness to your lips, simply dab a small amount of Lakmé Absolute Liquid Highlighter in the shade Ivory on the centre of your lips. This will give your lips a subtle yet stunning shine that complements your radiant, glowing complexion.
FAQs about Makeup Routine for Smooth, Glowing Skin: Step-by-step
The glow is just a few steps and Qs away…
Q1 How much moisturiser should I use?
Well, if you think more moisturiser will give you quicker results - let us just stop you right there! A nickel-sized amount should be the perfect quantity for your full face. Going in with heavy squeezes can bring some breakouts your way, and using too little won’t hydrate your skin, keeping it firm and tight.
Q2 Which foods help in getting glowing skin?
Antioxidant-rich foods are the way to go. Get your hands on yoghurt, berries and almonds!
