The best part about this hack is that it can be pulled off with products you already have in your vanity. Start with a clean face and follow these steps to create a smooth foundation base:

Step 01: Moisturise

Start by prepping your skin with a hydrating moisturiser like Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Oil-In Gel Cream. The non-sticky and non-greasy formula is perfect to prep your makeup to withstand the summer heat.

Step 02: Set with translucent powder

Once your moisturiser is absorbed, set it with some translucent powder. Use a fluffy powder brush to dust the Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Finishing Powder all over your face.

Step 03: Layer with setting spray

Spray some hydrating setting spray onto the face. This will set a matte powder layer on your skin and give your foundation a strong base to cling on to.

Step 04: Use a primer

It’s crucial that your setting spray dries completely before you go in with the primer, or else your foundation can run the risk of looking cakey. Go in with the Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer, lightly spreading it with your fingers for a flawless matte finish.

Step 05: Finally, go in with your foundation

Post-primer, use a foundation brush to apply your foundation in the end and ta-da! You’ve got yourself a pretty flawless looking base.
