5 makeup products to help you look fresh and awake in an instant

Don’t you just hate waking up to a dull and tired-looking face in the morning? You can blame your late-night Netflix marathon all you want, but TBH, there’s no guarantee your face will look well-rested even after a good 8-10 hours of sleep.

But fret not, with a thoughtfully curated beauty stash on hand, you can easily revive your dull and lifeless in an instant. Ahead, we’ve listed down five makeup products that will help you look fresh and well-rested in no time.


1. Primer


Skip applying mattifying products and opt for something that will nourish your skin and leave it looking supple and healthy. Nourished with vitamin E, the Lakme Absolute Under Cover Gel Face Primer can be used on its own or under makeup to give your skin that healthy glow. Plus, it’s smooth gel texture fills in fine lines and wrinkles to give you even-looking skin.


2. CC cream


Steer clear of heavy-duty foundations as they will only weigh you down. Opt for something lightweight that won’t accentuate your dry patches. Lakme 9 to 5 CC Complexion Care Cream will moisturise your skin and provide just the right amount of coverage to help you fake flawless looking skin.


3. Neutral eyeshadows


Use neutral eyeshadow colours to contour your eyes to make them appear brighter and wider aka wide awake. The Lakme Absolute Spotlight Eye Shadow Palette - Smokin Glam is loaded with exciting shades that can be used to contour and defines the eyes. Use the matte shades to define your crease and pack the shimmery shades on the inner corner of the eyes to make them pop.


4. Mascara


The easiest way to open up your eyes and look wide awake is by sweeping on a lengthening mascara. The Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara is a lightweight formula that lengthens and adds volume without making the lashes look clumpy. The smart curl brush helps curl the lashes, so you’re not left scrambling for a lash curler in the morning.


5. Blush


Skip matte blushes and opt for shimmery ones instead to tie the whole look together. Infused with subtle shimmer, the Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos has a luminous, silky formula which lends a natural-looking radiance to your skin.
