Budget Buy : Minimal makeup for any occasion

You don’t need ton of stuff to look good and you need to give a breathing time for your skin by avoiding constant makeup harmful chemicals. Also your inner beauty should take up priority rather than outer appearance.Stay happy and eat healthy to achieve a glowing skin and beautiful hair. Here are my favourite budget products that you can use to give a nice and polished appearance 🙂

This can be used for any occasion and its very much suitable as office wear 🙂

  • Kohl /Kajal

These are the girl’s best friends and it can make your eye to awaken and get a neat look . You can hide your tired and dull us by applying kajal . If you don’t want to show kajal application and want a very natural look, go for highlighting your eyes. My hands down winner is maybelline colossal Kajal 

  • Eyeliner

You will never go wrong with an eyeliner to enhance your eyes. Use brown liner for the polished look and its very much apt as an office wear. It looks beautiful on Indian skin too . My vote is Lakme eyeconic eyeliner pencil in Brown.

  • Lipbalm

Who wants chapped lips 😦 Always moisturize your lips with lip balm to get soft kissable lips <3. This will serve as a base for easier lipstick application and don’t accentuate your fine lip lines

  • Sunscreen

This is must for any skin type and it’s really needed to protect your face from harsh sun rays.  I usually use SPF 15 sunscreen for face. Try to get a product which acts as moisturizer + sunscreen. You will save a lot of time rather than layering stuff .

  • Moisturizing lotion

    Olay-Anti-Aging-Cream---Age-Protect--18-Gm--4902430316538--1351786232xpMVBS

Everyone knows the importance of moisturization. It’s must for all skin types and don’t forget to moisturize them to get soft , supple and glowing skin . My current favorite is Olay Age protect anti ageing cream. It has SPF 15 too 🙂

  • Compact

I don’t use compact often rather than special occasions. My HG powder is Ponds . It’s for my daily use and I’m using this from my childhood days 🙂

  • BB cream

If you have pigmented skin, you can build this up for better coverage. Also use your BB cream as under eye concealer. Current favorite – Ponds BB cream 

  • Mascara

Indian girls are blessed with gorgeous long and thick eyelashes and eyebrows. Use single coat of mascara for daily use for natural look or skip it like me because i;m too lazy to put something on my eyes 😉 Use double coats and coat your lower lashes for special occasion.

Hands down winner is Maybelline express volume colossal mascara.

How to apply/layer your makeup :

Wash and pat dry your face. Apply moisturizer and sunscreen. Leave it for 10 minutes to get absorbed.Apply lip balm. Now apply your kajal. Use BB cream if needed. Now apply your eyeliner. If you are using brown eyeliner, use the same to groom your eyebrows too .Set your makeup with loose powder or compact.

Apply a neutral lipstick and mascara if needed. One of my favourite natural finish looks by Anushka sharma  🙂
