If ‘less is more’ is the mantra you live by, here are 5 sticks, and tricks, you need.
Conceal and correct
Use the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick SPF 20 to cover dark circles and conceal any blemishes. You can even use the concealer to even out any discolourations and dark patches.
If you feel that your overall complexion needs a boost, create an even base using a stick foundation. Find a shade that’s closest to your skin tone in the Kareena Kapoor Khan By Lakmé Absolute Face Contour. Add a few stripes of it on your cheeks, chin, and forehead, and use your fingers to blend it in. The heat from your fingers will help blend in the product easily.
Add a flush of colour
Use the Kareena Kapoor Khan By Lakmé Absolute Cheek Contour in Coral Diva to add a subtle flush of colour to your face. A coral blush is universally flattering, so it looks good on all skin tones. You can use it on your lips, cheeks, and eyelids to create a fashion week-inspired monotone makeup look. Apply a little bit of the colour onto your eyelids using your finger and build up the intensity towards your crease. You can even use the Lakmé Absolute Lip Tint/Pout Matte or the Lakmé 9to5 Naturale Matte Sticks Lipstick if you want a wider variety of lip colours.
Sculpt and contour
Use the Kareena Kapoor Khan By Lakmé Absolute Face Contour to add depth and dimension to your face. Pick a shade that’s 2 to 3 shades darker than your skin tone to sculpt your face. Apply some in the hollows of your cheeks and along your jawline for a sculpted effect. You can even use it to contour your nose.
Bronze and highlight
It’s time to add a little bit of glow. Using the Kareena Kapoor Khan By Lakmé Absolute Cheek Contour in Rose Gold, highlight the highpoints of your face. Apply some on your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, on your cupid’s bow, and in the inner corners of your eyes for a supermodel-like glow.
