Prep and Prime - Setting the Canvas

Prepping and priming your skin is crucial for achieving a flawless face makeup look. To begin with, prepping the canvas involves taking care of your skin. It's important to cleanse, tone, and moisturise your skin before applying makeup. This will help in removing any dirt, oil, or impurities from your skin, which can affect the application of makeup. Additionally, using a good quality primer can also help in achieving that perfect finish.

A primer acts as a barrier between your skin and makeup. It helps in smoothing out any imperfections, such as pores, fine lines, and wrinkles, to create a smooth base for makeup application. A primer also enhances the longevity of your makeup, preventing it from smudging or fading throughout the day.

Try out the Lakmé Absolute Glow Primer for that lit-from-within glow. This illuminating primer is crafted with luminescent pearls for an instant radiant glow. This primer not only blurs imperfections, ensuring a smooth makeup application but also enhances the longevity of your makeup. Infused with glycerine, it provides hydration for a dewy look. The light and sheer texture make it versatile, serving as a primer or moisturiser.


Base Beauty - Achieving Flawless Foundation

If you're looking to achieve a flawless foundation, then you need to start with the right shade and type. Choosing the right foundation shade is critical to achieving a natural, seamless look. You should always test foundation shades on your jawline, as this will give you the best idea of how it will look on your face.

When it comes to choosing the right foundation type, you need to consider your skin type. If you have dry skin, then you should opt for a hydrating foundation for dry skin. If you have oily skin, then a mattifying foundation is the best choice. Combination skin requires a foundation that can balance out both dry and oily areas.

Once you have the right foundation, you need to apply it correctly. If you are wondering how to apply foundation on face, start by applying a small amount of foundation to the centre of your face and blend it outward. Use a beauty blender or a foundation brush for a seamless finish. If you have any blemishes or dark circles, use a concealer to cover them up before applying foundation.

For that luminous natural makeup look, use the Lakmé Absolute Luminous Skin Tint Foundation. This sheer, light-reflecting skin tint is your secret to a flawless glow. The weightless, ultra-blendable formula effortlessly melts into your skin, creating a lit-from-within effect that's truly mesmerising. With a long-lasting formula that illuminates skin up to 2X times upon immediate application, you'll turn heads with every glance.


Eye Enchantment - Crafting Mesmerizing Eye Looks

For eye makeup steps, start by prepping your skin with a good quality eye primer. Next, apply a neutral base eyeshadow, followed by a deeper shade in the crease. Then, blend it all with a fluffy brush to create a seamless transition of colours.

Revolutionise your eye game with the Lakmé Absolute Explore Eye Paint. This sensational crème eyeshadow is the epitome of glamour, casting a shimmering, glittery spell on your eyes. Whether you're channeling timeless elegance or unleashing your inner artist with the 7 dazzling shades, this oh-so-luxe crème texture and rich pigment make you shine like a showstopper. Enriched with cocoa butter, it prevents dry lids as you shine through the night. With crease-resistant qualities, it's your go-to for playing, slaying, and adding dazzling brilliance to your look.

Moving on, let's talk about the techniques for creating festive eye glam. With eyeshadow, always remember to blend, blend, blend! The key to creating a flawless eye look is to blend out harsh lines and create a gradient effect. For liner, you can create a simple, classic wing or experiment with different shapes and colours. Lastly, lashes can add the finishing touch to your eye look. Whether you opt for falsies or mascara, make sure to curl your lashes beforehand to open up your eyes.

Start by selecting a blush shade that complements your skin tone. Apply the blush to the apples of your cheeks, using a soft, fluffy brush. Blend the colour gently towards your temples, being careful not to overdo it. Remember, you can always add more if needed, but it’s not easy to take away once you’ve applied too much.

To achieve luminous and radiant cheekbones, use a highlighter that complements your skin tone. Apply it to the high points of your cheeks, just above the blush, using a fan brush. Blend it out towards your temples and down the bridge of your nose. Be mindful of how much you apply, as too much can make your skin appear oily or unnatural.
