We at BeBe are major fans of multitasking makeup products. While all of us have used our good ol’ lipstick in multiple ways and even created a full face of monochrome makeup look with it, did you know that an eyeshadow palette is equally versatile too?
Yes, really! Investing in an eyeshadow palette like the Lakmé Absolute Spotlight Eye Shadow Palette – Smokin’ Glam gives you access to a range of matte and glittery shades that you can use in so many different ways. Scroll down to find out how we used this stunning eyeshadow palette from Lakmé in five different ways.
- 01. As a glitter nail polish
- 02. As a blush
- 03. As an eyeliner
- 04. As a highlighter
- 05. As a contour
01. As a glitter nail polish
Feel like wearing glitter nail paint but don’t have any handy? Well, simply scrape a little bit of any glitter shadow from this palette and add it to clear nail polish. Mix it thoroughly before painting your nails with it. Who knew creating customised shades would be this simple!
02. As a blush
The beautiful peach shade in this eyeshadow palette makes for excellent blush and helps in adding a warm flush of colour to your cheeks. If you have large open pores, stick to the matte shades; otherwise, you can apply any of the glittery shades for an instant pop of colour.
03. As an eyeliner

Feel like applying a coloured eyeliner but don’t want to invest in a separate product? Well, the beautiful mix of shades in this eyeshadow palette will come in handy. All the shimmery shades in this palette make for the perfect eyeliners to wear with your ethnic outfits or glam party wear.
04. As a highlighter
Thanks to the lovely mix of glitter eyeshadow shades in nudes and golds, most of the shadows in the palette would double up as highlighters. Simply swipe on a shade of your choice to the high points of your face such as your cheekbones, forehead, brow bone, the bridge of your nose, cupid’s bow and chin for a lit-from-within glow.
05. As a contour
The matte brown shade in this Lakmé eyeshadow palette is the perfect shade to contour your cheekbones with for a chiselled finish. Simply swipe on the matte brown shade under your cheekbones using an angled fluffy brush to instantly add more dimension and give the illusion of high cheekbones.
