‘Mirror Glaze’ skin

Step 01: Start with prepping your skin with a lightweight moisturiser and follow it up with a few drops of the Dermalogica Phyto Replenishing Oil. Next, take a lightweight primer such as the Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer and apply it all over your face for a smooth canvas.

Step 02: For the soft, mirror glazed finish, take a few drops of the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation SPF 45 and blend it into your skin with a damp makeup sponge. You can cover up any other imperfections such as visible dark circles or blemishes with the Lakme Absolute Mattreal Mousse Concealer only where it’s needed.

Step 03: Next, take some of the darker shade from the Lakme Absolute Highlighter – Moon Lit and apply it under your cheekbones for a soft, sun-kissed look. Apply the lighter shade from the same palette on the high points of your face such as your cheekbones, forehead, cupid’s bow, bridge of your nose and chin. Add some colour to your cheeks with Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color - Nude Cushion.

Step 04: Even out any discolouration on your lids by applying a nude eyeshadow from the Lakme Absolute Infinity Eye Shadow Palette - Soft Nudes and blend it to soften the edges. Apply at least two coats of the Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara to open and define your eyes.

Step 05: Swipe on some nude lipstick such as the Lakme Cushion Matte Lipstick - Mauve Secret and then apply the Lakme Absolute Plump And Shine Lip Gloss - Rose Shine right to the centre of the lip.
