My 5 Must Have Make-up Items

Just like those must have 5 wardrobe items lists, this is my quick must have list of 5 make-up items that will multi-task to help you achieve all kinds of looks: office to glam.

1. Mascara in black: A good water-proof volumising/lengthening mascara can help your look go from office to glam in a matter of seconds. I would suggest Maybelline or Bourjois Mascaras.

2. Nivea Lip Balm in Strawberry: It combines the nourishment of a lip balm with the subtle tint & shine of gloss. A quick swipe and your lips look nourished & polished.

3. Bronze colored glitter powder: This multi-tasker is a life-saver when you have to rush from office to a party. This shade suits most Indian women. You can
  • Swipe some on the eyes as eye-shadow
  • rub a pinch on the cheeks for a sun-kissed bronze look, 
  • apply some on top of the Nivea lip balm to add glitter to the lips
Try Maybelline Dream Moussee Bronzer in Sun Kissed

4. Maybelline Whitestay UV Compact/Liquid foundation: A nice compact to instantly brighten dull skin. However this is not a very good choice for dry skin as it further dries out & empahsies dryness. Apply moisturiser before application.

5. Eyeliner in your favourite color: I like to carry Glimmering Plum by Lakme. Even Colorbar has a great range of liners and so does Bourjois, Jordana and Revlon. Buy as per your budget.
