Getting Ready with me on a work day is loads of fun!! Why?
Well, I make sure 10 minutes spent post-shower transform me into someone who doesn’t look like the person in the mirror brushing her teeth every morning!
By now we have cleansed, toned and moisturized. Sunscreen has been slapped on generously. Also, you have your work outfit of the day on!
Step 1 – Conceal & Brighten: Only if you have spots, areas with hyperpigmentation, uneven skin
- LA Girl Pro Conceal HD in shade FAWN to cover spots ( @ INR 595 MRP)
- Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Concealer in shade Honey to brighten under eye, t-zone & chin priced @INR 650
I’ve been wanting to get my hands on the M.A.C Studio Conceal And Correct Palette. Would be great for this step!
Step 2 – Base work: Even out the entire face
- M.A.C Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in shade NC43.5 @INR 2500 to even everything out
