Have you got your basics right? Your love for makeup may have started with a stroke of kajal or a lip gloss but we are letting you in on a secret—it is the flawless base makeup that really gets you glammed up for the gods and fetch you some compliments. A girl can certainly do without eyeliner or blush but not without a smooth and even base.

So, if you are clueless about which base makeup products you really need for good base makeup, don’t stress, we have got you covered. Here are the only 5 beauty products you will need for flawless base makeup.


01. Moisturiser

The key to getting smooth and even finish is in prepping the skin well. Whether you are working with a stick, liquid or mousse foundation, always start with a moisturised face. Apply a dollop-size amount of your moisturiser evenly on your face before reaching out for your base makeup.


02. Primer

Primer not only makes your makeup last long but also helps hide blemishes, dark spots and hydrates your skin. Pick a primer according to your beauty requirements like a mattifying one for oily skin and tinted one for colour correcting. You can try Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer that is tinted and helps blur visible pores.


03. Foundation

While picking a foundation of yourself, take your skin type into consideration. Liquid and cream foundations work best for dry skin while mousse and powder foundations are suitable for oily skin. Apply the foundation all over your face and blend well so there are no visible lines.


04. Concealer

No woman can do without a concealer since dark circles, acne scars and dark spots never leave you alone. Grab Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer and apply it under your eyes and on any blemishes for an even-toned and flawless-looking skin.


05. Setting powder/setting spray

Lastly, all you need is a compact powder, finishing powder or a setting spray to keep your makeup stay put all day. If you have dry skin, trust a setting spray for the dewy, hydrated look and if you are blessed with oily skin, then a buff of powder will be best for you.
