Step 1: Prep your skin
Prepping your skin before layering it with makeup is the key to ensuring that your makeup stays on for a long time without creasing or smudging. So, before you apply your base makeup, make sure you cleanse your face and then moisturise it with the Lakmé Peach Milk Soft Creme Moisturizer. While you’re at it, make sure you also prep your lips with the Lakmé Lip Love Chapstick to ensure that your lipstick glides on smoothly.
Step 2: Mix your foundation with the
highlighter The base is the most important part of your makeup, especially when you’re working to make it glowy. To get the perfect dewy look, mix the Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation with a tiny drop of the Lakmé Absolute Liquid Highlighter. Apply it on your face and neck and blend it evenly with your beauty blender. This will add that envious lit-from-within glow to your face.
Step 3: Dab on some concealer
To make sure you glow, you need to conceal all the blemishes, spots, dark circles and imperfections on your face. For that, you need a quality concealer like the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer SPF 25. Just apply the concealer under your eyes to hide dark circles, on your lids as a base and on all the blemishes to conceal them and blend it with a brush or beauty blender.
Step 4: Work that highlighter again
Grab the Lakmé Absolute Liquid Highlighter again to ace that dewy makeup look. Just apply a few small dots on your nose, cheekbones, brow bone and cupid’s bow and blend it well. This lightweight and non-sticky highlighter spreads easily and evenly on the skin to lend it a radiant glow.
Step 5: Highlight your eyes
It’s time to work on your eye makeup next. For this, start by applying any eyeshadow of your choice. Then grab the Lakmé Absolute Liquid Highlighter - Gold and dab it over the eyeshadow to add shine and make your eyes pop subtly. Just add a few dots on your lids and crease and spread it evenly with a brush. Then, use the Lakmé Eyeconic Liquid Eyeliner - Black to make the classic cat eyes, before applying 2-3 coats of the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara to amp up your lashes.
Step 6: Sweep on some lip colour
Lastly, to bring together the whole look, you need to add some lip colour to your lips. We suggest trying out the Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color - Pink Drama. It will beautifully bring together your dewy look with its intense matte finish and subtle and pretty colour that is perfect for all occasions. You can go one step ahead and dab a tiny bit of the Lakmé Absolute Liquid Highlighter - Ivory on the centre of your lips to add a subtle shine and make them look fuller.
