6 Must have makeup products

Lakme absolute blur perfect makeup primer

The only con that I found during usage is it leaves a residue.

Things to keep in mind before purchasing makeup

  • Choose products according to skin type. If you have sensitive skin, avoid artificial fragrance , parabens and alcohol.
  • Choose products according to skin tone. Very important to know your skin undertone when buying foundation and concealer.
  • Choose products that suit your need of skin coverage like light medium and full.
  • Check staying power especially in face makeup. The longer it stays the better is the outcome.

  1. Wow..do I feel ancient and antique now 🙂 I don’t use any of these products. Kajal yes but not the others. I love mascara and liner but my hands tremble and I just cannot draw a line.

  3. I’ve used lakme and maybelline but sugar cosmetics is new to me. Now a days, I just use an eyeliner and lipstick. Your tips on buying make up products are useful. Knowing your Skin type and tone are really important to buying the right cosmetics!
    It’s so annoying when make up doesn’t last long!

  5. I don’t use any makeup now apart from lipstick. You are absolutely right about skin tone. The makeup should match it.

  6. I tend to avoid makeup due to my ultra-sensitive skin. Have been using the Lakme liner since I was in college. It has been my go-to too. Will check out the Sugar kohl.

  7. Great list! I own 4 out of these. The lakme insta liner is so good and the Maybelline fit me is a range I just love

  8. I love the Lakme Insta Liner recommendation – that’s how I started out too and it took me a lot of convincing to move onto Lakme Absolute. I loved my little bottle and would carry it everywhere. For a beginner, Rs. 100 is easier to shell out than 400 or 500, probably why most of us take to it first 😀
