It is easy to feel uninspired while doing your makeup every morning since you have nowhere to go due to the pandemic. But that does not mean that you cancel makeup altogether from your life. You can still get creative and create fab looks and maybe earn a few compliments from your work wife on a Zoom call. We like to turn to some of our favourite Bollywood divas for inspiration. Here are some celeb-approved, minimal makeup looks we spotted recently that are oh-so-perfect for your Zoom meetings.

01. A touch of playfulness

Take a cue from Sanya Malhotra on how to add fun details to a simple matte makeup look. Use eyeliner to create a partial, floating liner and fill it in with some neon colour. Apply it to the inner corner of your eyes to make them pop. The Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate The Gelato Collection comes in eight vibrant shades that you can use to elevate your basic work look.
02. Pout power

If you like keeping your makeup sheer and minimal, you can add some colour by sweeping on a bright lipstick. A rich, matte formula like the Lakmé Absolute 3D Lipstick - Romeo Red will give you intense colour fill in a single swipe. You won’t feel the need to touch up the pout, even after sipping multiple coffees on a busy day!
03. Dreaming in Peach
Monotone makeup looks are easy to do and take just a few minutes to put together. A trendy monotone hue for the season is peach; it is warm, summery and looks lovely on all skin tones. If your makeup collection lacks variety, you can just swipe the Lakmé Enrich Lip Crayon - Peach Magnet both on the lips and lids and call it a day.
04. A uni-blush moment
Add some colour to your face using a blush. Take a sheer formula like the Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos - Coral Blush and swipe it across your nose and cheeks to instantly add colour to your face and give it a radiant glow. It looks so adorable and takes less than a minute to do it.

We cannot and will not chuck stunning nude brown shades just because some think they are boring! The hue looks lovely on Indian skin tones and can be used to create fabulous monotone makeup looks for work. An easy hack is to use brown kohl like the Lakme Eyeconic Kajal - Classic Brown and smudge it across your lids to create a soft colour fill.
