Standing true to its name, foundation sets the base of your makeup. It is important to find the right shade of foundation and to get the perfect match always visit a store instead of predicting the shade online. The Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse 16hr has a smooth formula that beginners can easily work with and is ideal for daily use.

Working with concealers is not that difficult, simply dab some on problem areas such as under the eyes, dark spots, around the mouth and blend away. It gives you an even skin tone and a flawless finish. Unlike foundation, concealer should be a shade or two lighter than your skin tone, the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer is formulated to suit most Indian skin tones and is easy enough to use for beginners.

Nothing defines your eyes better than an eyeliner. Working with liquid eyeliners can be messy and tricky, therefore we suggest you try the Lakmé Eyeconic Liner Pen Fine Tip - Deep Black. The pen allows you to draw precise and long-lasting strokes across your eyelids.

Apply two strokes of a volumising mascara and we won’t have to tell you why it is essential. Even when you are not wearing any makeup you can completely change your look simply by adding some volume to your lashes. The easiest way to get that right is by using the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Volumizing Mascara – Black, as this waterproof and smudge-resistant formula will give you dramatic volume and gorgeous lashes instantly.

You may have tried your mom's (or sister’s) lipstick in the past without thinking too much about the shade. But now it is time to get your own and for starters we would suggest you to invest in a nude and a bold lipstick. To find the perfect nude opt for a shade that is slightly darker than the natural colour of your lips and for bolds you can try a stunning red such as the Lakmé 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lip Color - LC MR1 Red Coat for the perfect pout.
