- #1: Use it as a moisturiser
- #2: Use it as a primer
- #3: Use it as a highlighter
- #4: Use it as an eyeshadow
- #5: Use it as a lip gloss
#1: Use it as a moisturiser
Want to get that instant radiance after applying just moisturiser on your face? We feel you. That’s why we highly recommend trying the Lakmé Lumi Cream that not only moisturises the skin but also lends it an effortless 3D glow. Ingredients like vitamin C, B3 and B6, Korean pink pearl extract, glycerin and hyaluronic acid make it a powerhouse product to get hydration, softness and brightness.
Just take a pearl-sized amount of the cream on your fingers and gently massage it on your face. See the difference? You’re welcome!
#2: Use it as a primer
Ask anyone who’s into makeup, and you’ll find that a *glow from within* finish is all that they are pining for! A great luminous makeup base begins with a primer. And girls, Lakmé Lumi Cream will help you achieve it. Take a little bit of the cream and spread it evenly on your face before you use a foundation. This will lend your skin a natural glow, and people won’t stop asking you the secret to it *wink*!
#3: Use it as a highlighter
A highlighter lets the key features on your face shine brighter. It’s a must-have in every girl’s makeup kitty, and we’re happy to tell you that Lakmé Lumi Cream is all you need for a seamless highlighted look. Give a reflective sheen to your skin by blending tiny dots of the cream on all the high points – top of the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, cupid's bow, sides of the forehead and brow bone. Impressive, right?
#4: Use it as an eyeshadow
Using a glow cream as an eyeshadow may seem like a stretch but trust us when we say it works. Dot the Lakmé Lumi Cream on your eyelids, crease, and outer corners evenly. The Korean pink pearl extracts in the product will give your eyes a glistening and soft-tinted effect, while the glycerin and emollients in it will make your eyes look aptly dewy.
#5: Use it as a lip gloss
Get creative and use an illuminating moisturiser like the Lakmé Lumi Cream as a lip gloss. Glycerin, emollients, and vitamins in the product will keep your pout moisturised, and the pink pearl extracts will lend it a subtle tint. Use it over liquid lip colour or as is. Just apply a wee bit of the cream on the lips, focusing on the centre of your pout. Then, gently blend and dab on it at the same time. Use more for added shine.
