Summer 2020 was officially cancelled, and most of us spent our times indoors chalking up an itinerary for our next holiday destination. But summer 2021 is finally here and with travel restrictions lifted, we bet you’ve already booked tickets to your dream destination. Irrespective of whether you plan to go on a tropical beach vacay or have booked a rustic cabin in the woods, you still want to look bomb.com in those numerous vacation selfies for the ‘gram… amirite?
And guess what, you don’t have to carry your entire vanity on the trip. All you need are these five (yes, only five) makeup products to slay in those vacay selfies! Scroll down to find out what they are.
- 01. Lakme 9 to 5 Complexion Care CC Cream SPF 30 PA++
- 02. Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color
- 03. Lakme Absolute Highlighter - Moon-Lit
- 04. Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara - Black
- 05. Lakme Absolute Micro Brow Perfecter - Charcoal
01. Lakme 9 to 5 Complexion Care CC Cream SPF 30 PA++
Swap those full coverage foundations for lightweight CC creams. They provide the right amount of coverage without looking too heavy and done-up. We always make sure to carry a tube of the Lakme 9 to 5 Complexion Care CC Cream SPF 30 PA++ in our vacation makeup kit. A perfect combination of skincare and makeup, we love the sheer coverage this formula provides. It not only brightens your skin and conceals imperfections but also keeps your skin soft and hydrated. Also, the SPF 30 PA ++ provides an extra layer of protection against harmful sun rays.
02. Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color
Multi-tasking makeup products like the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color are super timesaving, especially on vacations, when you can’t be bothered to spend more than five minutes doing your makeup. The weightless mousse formula sinks right into your skin for a healthy pop of colour, while the ultra-matte texture looks really chic when pouting for those selfies.
03. Lakme Absolute Highlighter - Moon-Lit
Adding a hint of glow to your face’s high points can make you look super fresh and healthy in those pictures. The Lakme Absolute Highlighter - Moon-Lit has a super soft powder formula with fine glitter particles that look stunning on application.
04. Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara - Black
Mascara is one product you should never skip when packing for your holiday. It defines your lashes and makes your peepers pop in the most subtle way. We absolutely love the lightweight, curling formula of the Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara – Black. It makes the lashes look big and voluminous, and the smart curl brush give the lashes a natural-looking curl, which we are obsessed with.
05. Lakme Absolute Micro Brow Perfecter - Charcoal
Never undermine the power of defined brows, girls! Just combing your brows and filling in the sparse areas can make a huge difference and make you look instantly well put-together. Our favourite pick is the Lakme Absolute Micro Brow Perfecter – Charcoal. The smudge-proof formula ensures the brows look perfect throughout the day without requiring frequent touch-ups.
