The much-awaited transition from winters to summers is here. Pushing our pullovers and sweaters toward the back of our closets. Shopping for floral, summery dresses off the internet. Changing up our skincare routines. There's so much to do. You've gotta tweak your makeup regimen too.

You can't walk around with a thick layer of foundation melting off your face under the sweltering sun, can you? Or stripes of smudged eyeliner running down your cheeks, no? Here's all the makeup swapping you ought to do as we dive into the summer. Really, it's not that complex.


01. Smudge-proof your makeup

Bestie, you don't want your makeup to melt off your face, do you? Streaks of mascara staining your lids. Strokes of kohl blending into your eyeshadow. Not a look. During the blistering summers, you must look out for formulas that are smudge-free, transfer-proof, and water-resistant. The Lakmé Eyeconic Volume Mascara and the Lakmé Insta Eye Liner are perfect for your eyes.


02. Forgo the foundation

Foundations are pretty heavy on the skin. You should swap them for BB or CC creams as you transition to summer. These formulas are light, and they offer protection, hydration, and coverage to your skin. The Lakmé 9 to 5 Complexion Care CC Cream SPF 30 PA++ is an excellent CC cream infused with skincare benefits. It conceals, moisturises, and evens out your tone like no other.


03. Play into the dewy-ness with a highlighter

Sweep a little bit of a liquid highlighter over the high points of your face to play into the freshness and glow of your skin during the summers. Add a pop on the apples of your cheeks, along your temples and jaw, and the tip of your nose. You can dab some on your Cupid’s Bow to accentuate your pout. We're loving the Lakmé Liquid Highlighters at the moment. They're available in three shades: silver, golden, and bronze. You can select any one based on your complexion.


04. Swap your lipstick shades

Reel in the summers with bright, vibrant shades of lipstick sitting atop your lips. Go for bright reds, oranges, pinks, and purples. The Lakmé Absolute Precision Paint Pot - Deep Fuschia is our absolute favorite of all striking pinks.


05. Invest in a primer

We cannot stress on how important it is to layer your face with a primer during summers. Primers set the base for your makeup, and extend its staying power. If you don't use one, you'll sweat your makeup off quickly. The Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Primer is your go-to products for even-toned, flawless face.
