Begin with a moisturiser

Before you apply any kind of makeup, it is essential to moisturise your skin as that acts as the first layer to your base. A good moisturiser blends into the skin and freshens your face for the next few makeup applications. We suggest you opt for the Lakmé Peach Milk Moisturizer. Why? Well, because this one is so light, it doesn’t even leave a greasy residue behind nor does it dry out the skin. So go ahead, apply this one for perfectly hydrated skin.

Prep and prime
 

Prep and prime

A building is only as strong as its foundations and when it comes to makeup, this is the job of the primer. When you’re going all out to perfect your makeup, your skin needs that instant pick-me-up that’ll help you set the concealer and foundation application after this step. We suggest you hydrate your skin further with the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Crème. This one can be used as a moisturiser as well as primer. It gets deeply absorbed into the skin but ends up lending a glossy finish, thanks to its mineral laden glacial water that will leave your skin nourished for long hours.

Don’t forget to conceal
 

Don’t forget to conceal

Think all the fatigue, dark circles and spots are taking away the glow from your face? After having moisturised, the next step to achieving the perfect base is concealing all your irregularities with the right concealer. We’ve been in love with the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick for a long time. This one contains Vitamin B3, which improves the skin’s hydration as well as helps secrete collagen, which is the protein responsible in keeping your skin young and fresh. You know what makes this concealer even more powerful? The fact that it has SPF 20, which will shield your skin against the harmful sun rays. Moreover, this one’s available in a light as well as medium shade so choose one that blends well on your skin. Using the tip of the stick to apply in the areas you need it the most; under the eyes, over your acne spots, etc. Use your ring finger to dab the concealer so the makeup looks natural.

Go for the foundation

One of the prime components of base makeup, the foundation is the genie that will give your skin coverage and lend you that smooth finish once you’re done using the concealer. Want to give your skin the best gift? Go for the Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse that blends beautifully on your skin and lends it a feather-light finish. If you’ve been worried about your visible pores and your uneven skin tone, you can rely on this one to cover them up. Its SPF 8 formula will save your skin from radiation and ensure that your skin ends up looking flawless for as long as 16 hours. It’s available in 3 shades so you have the option of choosing the shade that looks most natural on your complexion.
