Now that most states are under a strict lockdown again, we’re back to spending our time indoors, lounging around in our pyjamas. But since most of us will be working from home during this period, we still have to look presentable for those Zoom meetings. This means switching out of our PJ’s (at least the top) into something more presentable and turning to makeup to cover those sleep-deprived peepers.

But we completely get it if you don’t want to spend hours blending your foundation only to stay home all day. Enter: CC cream. CC cream gives your skin a natural finish and is super lightweight and comfortable on the skin, meaning you can wear it throughout the day without being bothered. That’s why, today, we’ll teach you how to use cc cream to give your skin a dewy, even-toned appearance. Excited? Read on…


How to apply CC cream

How to apply CC cream

Step 01: After cleansing and toning your face, apply a generous amount of the Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Day Creme SPF 20 With Pure Aloe Vera all over your face and neck. The lightweight oil-free texture of this moisturiser provides intense hydration and is suitable for all skin types.

Step 02: Take a little bit of the Lakmé 9 To 5 Complexion Care Face CC Cream SPF 30 PA++ and dot it all over your face and neck. Blend the Lakmé CC cream into your skin using a damp makeup sponge using a dabbing motion. This should cover any uneven texture, redness or pigmentation on your face.

Step 03: If you need more coverage, go in with a tiny amount of the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer and apply it only to the areas that need more coverage, such as the under-eye area, around the mouth and nose, and any other visible spots or imperfections.

Step 04: Apply a tiny amount of the Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos - Rose Blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend well for a rosy glow.

Step 05: Finish this quick and simple dewy makeup look by sweeping on the Lakmé Absolute Highlighter – Moon Lit to the high points of your face such as the cheekbones, forehead, the bridge of your nose, cupid’s bow and chin.
