We've got a few beauty secrets that will help you get glowing skin almost instantly. And the best part? They're super easy to do, too! Ahead, we're listing down our top WFH beauty secrets that will help you get glowing skin in a jiffy. Take notes!

- 02. Opt for illuminators
- 03. Don't underestimate the inner-corners

- 05. Amp up your pout
01. Use a tinted moisturiser
Before we get to the glowing skin part, we've got to mask up the dullness somehow, no? Using a tinted moisturiser can help you turn lifeless-looking skin around, since it'll cover up imperfections while looking natural on camera too. Opt for the Lakmé Absolute Hydra Pro Tinted Moisturiser to do the job, since it contains hydrating pentavitin and refreshing hyaluronic acid that will perk up your skin, while giving you sheer coverage too.
02. Opt for illuminators
Illuminators are the right choice for WFH beauty looks — they give your skin an innate glow, without being in-your-face. The Lakmé Lumi Cream is the perfect illuminator for your mug, since it gives you the benefits of skincare along with highlighting your face too. Use it on the high points of your face and blend well to get a natural-looking glow, or mix in a few drops with your tinted moisturiser for a subtle sheen.
03. Don't underestimate the inner-corners
This is an often overlooked beauty tip, but highlighting the inner-corners of the eye with a little bit of eyeshadow can make all the difference between glowing skin and sallow skin. By highlighting the inner corners of your eyes, you can make yourself look more awake, and lend a natural looking glow to your face too. Go in on your inner corners with the lightest shade from the Lakmé 9 to 5 Eye Colour Quartet Eye Shadow - Desert Rose and perk up your lids — you'll be surprised at how refreshed you look!
04. Turn to sheer blushes
Sheer, natural-looking blushes with a tiny bit of sheen can add a healthy, flushed glow to any visage. Turn to the Lakmé Face Sheer Blusher - Sun Kissed for a healthy, radiant glow. Its sponge applicator makes for a quick and easy blush that will give you a sun-kissed glow, even if you haven't seen the sun in days!
05. Amp up your pout
When it comes to getting a full-blown radiant glow on your skin, your pout plays a big part too — don't neglect it! Give the heavy mattes a rest when you want radiant skin since it might dull it down just a little, and instead, opt for the Lakmé Absolute Plump And Shine Lip Gloss - Rose Shine for a glossy, pigmented, high-shine pout that enhances the glow while managing to look natural still.
