Makeup trends are cool, but they’re so difficult to pull off on a day-to-day basis. Honestly, no one wears neon eyeshadow or popsicle lips to work or do they? When it comes to your everyday makeup look, usually less is more and most people want to apply just enough makeup to look fresh and glowing.

Therefore, it is really important to have a basic makeup routine that consists of really simple steps that accentuate your features while concealing those imperfections beautifully.

We have created a step-by-step guide to help you nail a really simple everyday makeup look that you can recreate in a matter of minutes.

 

Step 01: Prep your skin

Step 01: Prep your skin

To ensure that your skin looks absolutely perfect, start with cleansing, toning and moisturising your face. Apply a generous amount of sunscreen and then apply a pea-sized amount of the Lakmé  Absolute Under Cover Gel Face Primer all over your face. This will help even out your skin texture and increase the wear time of your makeup.

 

Step 02: Perfect the base

The next step is to create a flawless, natural-looking base. To do this, start by dotting your face with the Lakmé  9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation and blend it into your skin using a makeup sponge. Next, use the Lakmé  Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer to further even out the skin and conceal imperfections, if any. If you have oily skin, then you can seal the base by dabbing a little bit of the Lakmé  Absolute White Intense Wet & Dry Compact on the areas that tend to get oily.

 

Step 03: Apply some blush and highlighter

A swipe of blush will add an instant lift to your face and make you look incredibly fresh. Simply take the Lakmé  9 to 5 Pure Rogue Blusher and apply it to the apples of your cheeks using a brush. If you want to add a little glow to your face, then take the highlighter from the Lakmé  Absolute Highlighter – Moon-Lit and carefully apply a tiny bit to the highpoints of your face.

 

Step 04: Dress up your eyes

For your eyes, start by applying the beige shade from the Lakmé  Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette - French Rose all over your lid. Next, apply a tiny amount of the Lakmé  Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal – Black and smudge it out to create a really pretty soft eye makeup. Repeat the same thing on your lower lid. Finish your eye makeup by applying two coats of mascara.
