Nothing makes your face light up like good ole mascara. It’s a trick our mums have used and with so many testimonials in agreement, we can only carry the torch forward. Always keep some mascara handy and whether you’re rushing to your New Year’s Eve party or need a quick touch-up, trust us, it’ll be your best bet.
Most women tend to keep their lipsticks handy, but contrary to popular belief, experts say that you should carry some lip balm instead. Applying lip balm over your lipstick as soon as you apply it secures it in place for longer delaying your need for a touch-up. And if and when you do need one, dab on some waxy (not oily) lip balm instead to rejuvenate the colour and add some gloss.
(Bonus: If it’s tinted enough you can even use it as a cheek tint.)
It might seem like we’re a little more partial to the eye area but what can one do, nothing dolls up a face like dressed up eyes. One of our go-to essentials for a party is the Lakmé Absolute Drama Stylist Shadow Crayon, which doubles up as both, a liner as well as a shadow. Our favourites are the aquamarine and white, both of which add just the right amount of sparkle when we’re heading out.
