5 Products In Your Makeup Bag That Can Do The Work Of 10

There’s no point in buying every make-up product available in the market. Here are five makeup products in your collection that can actually do the job of 10 products.

CONCEAL & CONTOUR

Make your concealer work double-time. Instead of investing in a separate contouring palette, purchase another concealer that’s a shade darker than your skin tone. You can use the lighter shade to conceal and brighten your under-eye area, and use the darker shade to add a subtle contour. Since most concealers come in a liquid or cream base they’re easier to blend and will give you a more natural contour.

The Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer is quick and easy to use. Grab two shades of it depending on your skin tone.

FULL EYE, ONE PALETTE

Your eyeshadow palette could give you a full eye look. Use eyeshadows in colours that graduate from light to dark to do a subtle smokey eye. Soft glam is a big trend right now, so instead of using liquid eyeliner, use the darkest shade in your palette to line your eyes. Blend it out towards the end to enhance the smokey eye you created in the beginning. Finally, take the darkest brown shade and fill in your brows. Brown makes your eyebrows look more natural compared to black.

The Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Gold has all the hues to give you a barely-there eye and even a full smoky lid.

EYE, CHEEK AND LIP

Monotone is another trend that’s been doing the rounds. You can use the same lip colour like a lipstick, blush, and eyeshadow to achieve this look. Just take the colour on your finger and apply it on your lids sparingly. The heat from your hands will melt down the product and make it easy to blend. Similarly, take the tiniest bit and apply it to the apples of your cheeks. If you’re looking to get a no-makeup makeup look then this is the best way to achieve that. Finally, apply the colour on your lips. Again, apply a tiny amount and then blend it out with your finger to achieve a natural, stained lip.

The Lakmé Absolute Lip Pout–Crème in Orange Tease is a gorgeous coral colour that you can apply all over for a creamy monotone makeup look.

GLAM MAKEUP IN A BRICK

If you’re looking to get that overall glow then a shimmer brick is perfect. Take your favourite shimmer brick and use the medium shade on the lid and the darkest shade to highlight your crease. Take the lightest shade in the brick to highlight the inner corners of your eye to really open them up. Then, swirl all the colours together and add them to your cheeks for a blush-highlighter effect. Finally, take the lightest shade to highlight your collarbones, nose, and cupid’s bow.

The Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Shimmer Brick in Pink has beautiful shades of pink, brown, and coral that perfectly complement Indian skin tones.

ONE PENCIL, MANY DRAWINGS

If you’re not confident using a liquid eyeliner, a kohl pencil is perfect for you. It isn’t as stark as liquid eyeliner, is easier to blend, and also gives you more control during application. After tightlining your eyes, use the same pencil as an eyeliner. You can blend out the end if you want a more natural finish. Next, lightly draw in your brows with the same kohl pencil. Be sure that your pencil is sharp so that you don’t end up depositing more product on your brows than necessary. Finally, brush the product into your brows with a spoolie brush or angled brush. 

The Lakmé Absolute Forever Silk Eyeliner is all you need to pull off a number of eye makeup looks.
