For a lot of women, wearing foundation every single day can be a bit too much. Besides, if you don’t really apply foundation properly, it can end up looking a little unnatural (or even cakey), which is definitely not the look you’re trying to achieve in the first place. So, if you’re someone who doesn’t like reaching for that bottle of foundation every single day, you’re in luck. ‘Cause we are about to show you how to achieve a no-foundation makeup look for a super-natural finish in 3… 2… 1

Step 01: Prime

When you’re not going to be using a foundation, it is really important to use a pore-minimizing and skin-perfecting primer to even out your skin and give it a smooth texture. You can use the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Primer for this as it not only controls oil and sweat but also hides skin perfections quite effectively.

Step 02: Conceal

Use your concealer to cover up blemishes and brighten your face. Grab the Lakmé Absolute White Intense SPF 20 Concealer Stick and apply a little bit under your eyes and any other area that needs concealing.

Step 03: Brows

Well-defined brows will help add definition to your face. Use the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil to lightly fill in the gaps and define your brows.

Step 04: Highlight

Take the Lakme Absolute Highlighter - Moon Lit and apply it to the high points of your face — apples of the cheeks, bridge of the nose, forehead and chin. This will give you a lit-from-within glow.

Step 05: Curl your lashes

It is important to curl your lashes to open up your peepers and look wide awake. After you’ve curled them, apply two coats of the Lakme Eyeconic Mascara to make your lashes look fuller.

Step 06: Complete your look by swiping on a nude lipstick or simply swipe on a lip balm to give an illusion of a plumper pout and ta-da, your quick and simple foundation-free makeup look is ready!
