How To Get Glowing Skin Without Using A Heavy Base

Written by Chandni GhoshSep 15, 2020
When it comes to achieving glowing skin, you’d think that only abundant makeup, particularly a heavy base, will help your face look luminous. But it’s completely possible to keep your base makeup light and still attain a glowy finish. Wondering how? Here are a few tips and tricks...

Mix a luminous crème with a weightless foundation

If you truly want a lustrous touch to your skin, you must mix your base mousse with a cream that gives you that luminosity. For this go for the Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Whitening Serum that’s enriched with micro crystals and skin lightening vitamins that help polish your skin. Mix a dime sized amount of this serum with the Lakmé 9-to-5 Weightless Mousse Foundation that’s feathery light on the skin and yet reduces the appearance of blemishes and imperfections on the skin.

You’d agree when we say that only a highlighter can give you that perfect glow on the high points of your face. But if you don’t want to wear a heavy foundation and yet want your highlighter to set in beautifully, apply a light primer on your skin first and then go for highlighting. We suggest you go for the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Primer, which has a smooth matte texture and is extremely light on the skin. The Lakmé Absolute Moon Lit Highlighter will then set perfectly and lend that perfect glow to your face.

There’s nothing smoother and lighter on your skin than a CC Cream. To get a radiant glow without using too much base, go for the Lakmé 9 to 5 CC Color Transform Cream. This one will even out your skin tone, brighten and conceal your skin. Once you’ve applied the CC cream, use a blush brush and apply the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Shimmer Brick on your cheekbones for that much-needed glow.
