The Fair and Lovely BB Cream

Diwali is those five days of the year when you must look #festiveselfie ready at all times. But then you can’t possibly live in makeup through the day, that’s why you need to rely on something that will give you the same pay off that makeup does without having to cake your skin. Our suggestion? The Fair and Lovely BB Cream that has max coverage, is super light and also comes with SPF 15 which means your skin looks good and also stays protected, something that the BeautyonDuty beauty bloggers Kritika and Priyal discovered just in time for Diwali!
