During this lockdown, TikTok has been providing us with our daily share of entertainment. Most of us can spend hours and hours watching people showcase their talent in so many arenas. But what we love most of all is the innovative makeup application skills that people are bringing to the table.

One such hack that recently caught our attention is the reverse base makeup hack. This hack asks you to do your base makeup using the all the products that you usually use, but in the reverse order to make your products stay on longer and look flawless at the same time. Yes, you read that right.

Step 01: Always start any makeup routine with a clean and moisturised face. This provides the perfect base to your makeup and helps it look even.

Step 02: After your moisturiser, instead of the primer, grab hold of the Lakme Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Finishing Powder and apply a little bit of it all over your face.

Step 03: Next, spray a generous amount of a setting spray all over your face and neck. This is what will give your makeup a beautiful, dewy finish.

Step 04: Now, is the time for primer. Once the setting spray has completely dried off, take a tiny amount of the Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer and pat it into your skin. This will diminish the appearance of pores or any other skin imperfections.

Step 05: Finally, finish off your base with a hydrating foundation such as the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation With SPF 45 using a damp makeup sponge.

Why this works?

The translucent powder and setting spray deliver a lot more protection against sweat, oil and other issues, making your foundation cling onto your skin a lot better. It also delivers a lot more coverage without looking cakey.
