Sometimes a good look needs just simple beauty tips for face at home like creating a good base which includes priming and a long-lasting foundation. If you don’t have a lot of blemishes or hyperpigmentation, you can easily skip the foundation and just make do with a pore-blurring and tinted primer.

This lightweight primer also gives a matte finish, so if you sweat a lot or have oily skin, it will work wonders and make sure your makeup lasts all day long.  

If you want a full face of foundation with medium to full coverage, you can easily go for the Lakmé 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation as it is buildable and blends easily.

When it comes to a summer look, easy beauty tips for face at home include soft and natural lines to highlight the best features of your face. So, whether you have a bony structure or round cheeks, go easy on the contouring. The Lakmé Absolute Facelift Palette has everything you need for this step from bronzer to blush. Add on the pigmented and rosy blush for that sun-kissed look while the subtle gold highlighter can easily turn your day look into a party one. As for the bronzer, it is infused with nourishing argan oil so you can swipe it all over your face to complete your contour.   

Instructions on How to Use the Tip  

Start with the bronzer and swipe it on your jawline, cheeks, a little on the chin and the sides of your forehead. Don’t worry about it getting too dark as you can opt for the lighter ‘Golden Hour’ shade if you have a lighter skin tone and the deep ‘Sunkissed Glow’ if you have a darker skin tone. All of the colours are buildable so you can keep adding and blending till you are happy with the outcome. 

For the blush, you can dab it on the apple of your cheeks and your nose for that Y2K look everyone is going for nowadays. 

Finally, add a sweep of the highlighter on the top of your cheekbones, the tip of your nose, brow bone and cupid’s bow.


3. Bright eyes

Leave the dramatic smokey looks for the dark wintery nights. Bright colours or pop of colour eyeshadows are in. We love the bright and vibrant colours of Lakmé Absolute Infinity Eye Shadow Palette - Pink Paradise. It is extremely pigmented so even the light colours will show up on our Indian skin. And while it has a creamy formula for easy application, there are matte and shimmery shades for both day and night looks.  

Complete your eye makeup with a gel liner for a subtle smudged-out wing. The Lakmé Black Gel Liner is waterproof and dries instantly after 15 seconds so once you’re happy with your intentional smudging, it won’t mess up on its own later in the day. Its smooth formula also makes you feel like you are applying liquid eyeliner but isn’t too intense, making it perfect for the summery look. 

Instructions on How to Use the Tip  

Take a bright colour from the palette and apply it all over your eyelid. You can leave it at that as a single pop of colour is all the rage. You can also go for a light smokey-eye look if you want to experiment. Take a slightly darker colour and apply it on the outer corner of the eye and blend out the edges. Apply a thin line of the gel liner and wing it out. You can then take a small brush and smudge out the wing.


4. Colourful or nude lips

FAQs about Top Beauty Tips to Ace Your Summer Makeup Look

For your lips, you can try out bright colours or a nude shade, that is up to your mood and outfit. However, to stop it from bleeding out or being wiped off, opt for matte lipstick. Lakme’s newest nude shades of the 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Liquid Lip Color works for every outing and occasion. And whether you are out sweating under the sun or wearing a mask, it will stay on thanks to its transfer-proof and smudge-proof formula. Unlike other liquid lipsticks, this one also gives a smooth and creaseless finish. 

Instructions on How to Use the Tip  

Since this liquid lipstick has intense and pigmented shades, you can go for light and bright colours like the Nude Punch or Brick Nude if you like or you can go for a nude shade. But the thing with a nude shade for your lip colour, there is no one universal shade. All you need to do is pick a lipstick shade that is closest to your skin tone but is just one shade darker so you don’t look washed out. If you have cool undertones, look in the pink family and if you have warm undertones, stay on the red and brown side. If you have neutral undertones, you can just focus on the intensity of the colour.

FAQs about Top Beauty Tips to Ace Your Summer Makeup Look

Q1. Should you wear a foundation in the summer? 

Since full coverage can make your skin feel heavy, you can stick to a tinted primer or tinted BB cream. If you do need full coverage, you can go for a lightweight foundation. 

Q2. Why does my makeup look bad in the summer? 

The hot temperature, humidity, sweat and oily skin can make your makeup look cakey or end up melting it. Stick to waterproof makeup and reduce the number of layers you apply. Stick to light makeup during the day if you can.  

Q3. Does sunscreen go before or after makeup? 

After you have washed and dried your face, apply your sunscreen. To make sure you don’t apply too much, dot a few drops on your face and spread it out till it covers your face. Wait for two minutes or till it is completely absorbed before going ahead with your makeup.  

And there you have it. Here are some beauty tips for face at home this summer that you can try to ace your makeup. So, no more worrying about a sweaty look or touch-ups in the middle of the day.
