If you were to traverse TikTok’s sea of hacks, you’d chance upon a hundred trends relating to beauty—including some of the most bizarre methods to blend your foundation, pucker your pout, and curl your hair. From doing your makeup ‘backwards’ to brushing your eyebrows with soap, the platform has witnessed us go crazy over these hacks. But through the craziness of it all, there exists one trend that we never tire of: the no-makeup makeup look as fashioned by celebrities and influencers alike. We're shifting toward a soft-glam, luminous aesthetic that's centred around flushed cheeks, mascara-coated eyes, and natural-looking fluffy brows.
Today, we're going to show you just how to achieve the look with the correct products.
- A glitter-studded moisturiser
- A primer-cum-concealer
- A volume-inducing mascara
- A rosy blush
- A luminescent highlighter
- A rose-tinted balm
A glitter-studded moisturiser
A lightweight moisturiser studded with a hint of highlighter like the Lakmé Lumi Cream lends a 3D glow to your face. This double-duty product endows your face with skincare benefits as well as the perfect makeup look. Vitamin C and B6, hyaluronic acid, glycerine, and Korean pink pearl extracts are among the illuminating moisturiser's all-star lineup of ingredients. Just dab a little on your face, and blend it in with your fingers to set the base for a lit-from-within flush.
The Lakmé Primer and Matte Liquid Concealer primes your skin for a smooth, long-lasting base that holds onto your makeup and conceals spots, dark circles, and blemishes at the same time.
A volume-inducing mascara
How do you add just enough volume to your lashes without dramatising your look? Get your hands on the Lakmé Eyeconic Volume Mascara STAT. This clump-free, water-resistant mascara stays on the lashes for more than eight hours without smudging. Another product infused with skincare benefits, this one is formulated with ingredients like calendula extract and castor oil that nourish your lashes.
A rosy blush
A stroke of pink on the cheeks is all you need to play into the minimalism of the look. The Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos - Coral Blush lends a natural flush to your cheeks and blends into your skin effortlessly for a silky finish.
A luminescent highlighter
This look is incomplete without a highlighter. The Lakmé Absolute Liquid Highlighter - endows your face with a radiant, dewy glow and blends into your skin seamlessly for a lightweight finish. Dab a little on the high points of your face. Don't forget the Cupid’s Bow!
A rose-tinted balm
Nope. We're not doing lipsticks. We're doing balms. Our go-to balm is the Vaseline Lip Therapy Tin - Rosy Lips. Along with bedecking the lips with a rose-tinted puckered pout, this deliciously scented, non-sticky balm, infused with the white petroleum jelly, seals in moisture immediately and leaves in its trail a sweet scent. Yeah. We love skin-loving makeup products.
