Valentine’s Day is around the corner and we’re sure you’re looking forward to spending some quality time with bae. You’ve bought the perfect outfit, shoes and matching accessories. But aren’t you forgetting something? Yes, we are talking about your makeup.
If you haven’t given any thought to the kind of makeup you want to sport on V-Day then this article is just for you. Follow this step-by-step guide to ace the date night makeup look that will complement any outfit you’re planning to woo bae with.
Step 01: After you are done with your CTM routine, apply a little bit of the Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer. Remember to pat the product instead of rubbing it into your skin.
Step 02: Dot your face with the Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation and blend it in using a damp makeup sponge. This will give your face an airbrushed finish.
Step 03: Conceal your under-eye area and any other imperfections on your face with the Lakme Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer. Set your under-eye area by dusting a little loose powder.
Step 01: For a really cute, flushed look, apply a little bit of the Lakme 9 to 5 Pure Rouge Blusher - Ginger Surprise.
Step 02: Next, add a little warmth to your cheeks by applying a little bit of bronzer. You can use the Lakme Absolute Highlighter – Moon Lit.
Step 03: Take the highlighter from the same palette and apply it to the high points of your face for that beautiful glow.
Step 01: Our best advice would be to not overdo your eyes. A subtle smokey eye is a no-fail eye makeup look for a date night. Start by applying the matte brown eyeshadow from the Lakme 9 To 5 Eye Quartet Eyeshadow - Mystic Nudes palette all over your eyes.
Step 02: Roughly apply a little bit of the Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal – Black close to your lash line and smudge it out. Line your waterline with a brown pencil to add definition.
Step 03: Coat your upper and lower lashes with two coats of the Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Volumizing Mascara to complete your eye makeup.
Step 01: Start by scrubbing your lips with a DIY scrub of honey and sugar. This will slough away dead skin cells and give your lips a super smooth canvas.
Step 02: Next, moisturise your lips using a hydrating lip balm such as the Vaseline Lip Therapy Color & Care Chapstick.
Step 03: Now that your lips are prepped, start by lining your lips with a nude lip pencil.
Step 04: Finally, fill in your lips using a soft pink lip colour. You can use the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color - Blush Velvet.
