One trend that we can’t get enough of is the glossy one. It’s all about looking sleek, lustrous and well-hydrated. Recently launched by Lakmé, the Lakmé Absolute Gloss range is a rare coming together of skincare and makeup to reflect the glossy trend. Comprising the Lakmé Skin Gloss Gel Crème, Lakmé Skin Gloss Reflection Serum, Lakmé Skin Gloss Overnight Mask and Lakmé Absolute Gloss Addict lip colour, these products are all you need to look glossy and hydrated throughout summer. We get three fabulous makeup artists to weigh in on looking glossy.

Swarnalekha Gupta The glossy and hydrated look is often opted for especially in summers. It is in vogue and is spotted in most fashion weeks around the world. When your skin is too dry, it tends to look dark, greyish and patchy. So the glossy effect puts the life back into your skin. Skin care products which provide hydration coupled with high-sheen makeup can do wonders to achieve the look effortlessly. Preparing the skin is of utmost importance. A good hydrating primer can be mixed with a tinted moisturiser to prep the face. Shimmery eye shadows, cream blush-ons, and high-shine lipsticks can do the trick. Just add a hint of shine just in between the cheek bone and the eyes and see the wonderful effect it creates. Natasha Nischol The Lakmé Absolute Gloss range of makeup and skincare products is designed such that its light-weight and smooth texture accentuates your skin’s natural sheen. The mineral laden glacial water enriched skincare products give a lustrous finish to your skin and the gloss stick completes the look with the prefect dose of colour and shine. Pallavi Jain The glossy and hydrated trend is really big internationally and is a great look for sporting this summer. It gives you a wholesome and fabulous appearance. I especially love the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Addict lip colour as it keeps your lips well moisturised and looks incredible at the same time. Whether you’re going for brunch or catching up with friends over coffee, this is THE look to opt for. You can complement it with floral jumpsuits and chiffon dresses.
