Written by Pratishtha RanaSep 30, 2021

The festive season has finally entered the beauty chat and we’re ready to give it all the attention it deserves. But, at times, with work and other responsibilities piling up on the side, you may not be able to wholly devote your time to a proper beauty routine.

In that case, you need a few makeup products that will make your face look radiant and healthy, without taking up too much time. Here’s a 4-step routine to help you perfect your base makeup in less than 10 minutes. Excited? Let’s begin…

Step 01: Use an illuminating moisturiser

The festive season calls for a radiant base and our go-to pick to achieve lit-from-within glow is the Lakmé Lumi Cream. A unique blend of moisturiser and highlighter, this lightweight moisturiser is made with Korean pink pearl extracts that lend your skin a natural-looking glow. Just dot the cream across your face and massage it in for a natural-looking glow.

Step 02: Set your foundation

Now, onto the foundation. To even out your complexion, use a dewy foundation like the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation SPF 45. Infused with argan oil, this foundation lends your skin a beautiful dewy and radiant look. Plus, it’s got SPF 45 to keep the skin protected from sun damage. Simply dot the foundation on your face and blend with a damp beauty sponge or foundation brush.

Step 03: Hide imperfections with concealer

A concealer will help you get rid of the blemishes and dark circles and provide extra coverage (if needed). We love the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer; it not only covers imperfections flawlessly but also hydrates and adds a touch of brightness to the skin. Apply a tiny amount of concealer on the problem areas and blend well.

Step 04: Seal it with a compact

The last and important step is to lock your makeup in place! We trust the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact that clings onto the skin for up to 16 hours and makes your face look radiant all along. Take the compact puff and touch it up on the compact powder. Once the product is on the puff, using even strokes, lightly dab it all across your face and neck to set the base makeup well and seal the festive-ready glow!
