Some of you might argue that summers and makeup don’t go hand-in-hand. But that’ll break a makeup enthusiast’s heart, won’t it? For all you makeup hoarders, summer makeup means going heavy on moisturising with a wee bit of minimal makeup. Scroll down to know our 5-step makeup routine for the summers…
Base
 

Base

Make sure you moisturise your skin intensely before starting your summer makeup routine. Runny makeup can be one of your biggest concerns during the summers. This is why caking your face up with thick foundations that weigh your face down will only make matters worse for you. Give your face something light in the form of the Lakmé 9to5 Weightless Mousse Foundation. Not only is this feathery light on the skin but it’s also just the kind of tinted makeup you need for the summers.

Eyes
 

Eyes

Summer is not for heavy eye makeup, even if you’re heading for a party. A basic nude or brown matte eyeshadow should do the trick for you. Use the bronzer side of the Lakmé Moonlit Highlighter on your lids. Make sure you use just a wee bit so it’s not too overpowering.

Highlight
 

Highlight

Highlighted skin is synonymous with a summer makeup look. Not only will it highlight your sun-kissed skin but it will also give you that much-needed glow. We suggest using the same highlighter palette and apply it on the high points of your face.

Blush
 

Blush

Add some warmth to your skin using a coloured blush. Don’t go shimmery or overtly coloured because that won’t be in sync with your summer makeup look. Use the Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos, Peach that works for all skin tones.

Lips
 

Lips

Finish off your summer makeup look with a hint of nude or light brown on your lips. We suggest using the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color, Caramel Custard for this purpose.
