Product: Joues Contraste Powder Blush
Coco Chanel gave the world a lot more than Pinterest worthy quotes and the Little Black Dress. She came up with an iconic brand “Chanel” that empowered women and made them feel chic and sophisticated.
Manufactured in Italy, ‘The Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush’ is a neutral, rose blush available in a variety of shades that delivers the ideal dose of pigment to cheeks. It also flatters a wide range of complexions making it an ideal pick for Indian skintones. This is the makeup-bag staple of many celebrities including actress Priyanka Chopra, and we think it’ll become one of yours, too.
Store: Estee Lauder
Product: Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation
Like most success stories, Estee Lauder started small with only four skincare products to their name. Today the brand has one of the most loyal fan base in the entire beauty kingdom.
The ‘Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation’ is a beloved classic from the brand. It promises to last a good 15 hours and guess what, it does! It hardly falters through humidity, heat or even a hectic schedule. The foundation comes in a super wide variety of shades, leaves the perfect amount of high coverage, complements your skin tone perfectly and blends like a dream! Need we say more?
Store: Bobbi Brown
Product: Bronzing Powder
All makeup lovers know that Bobbi Brown is a living legend, who’s taken the beauty industry by storm. With her signature powders and best-selling lipsticks, this makeup artist turned beauty mogul redefined the rules and preached that makeup could mean just looking yourself the way you are.
‘Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder’ is a magical product that can transform your makeup from drab to fab in an instant. The powder goes sheer leaving a matt finish. The catch in this particular bronzer is that unlike its counterparts, it doesn’t have even the slightest tinge of shimmer, giving you a very natural looking contour.
Pro Tip: To ensure that your contour looks stunning, make sure to dust over the apples of your cheeks, and along the hairline, nose, and chin.
Product: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream
A favourite of many international bloggers, the NYX ‘Soft Matte Lip Cream’ has a light formula and provides rich color and moisture. This cult product dries into matte without even drying your pout like other liquid lipsticks. It won’t put a hole in your pocket either, with its amazing quality that comes at an affordable price. Highly coveted, some of its shades get sold out within a day’s time!
Pro Tip: Though this lip cream comes in a plethora of shades (34 to be precise), their shade called ‘London’ is a must try. It’s a gorgeous nude shade and the go-to color if you want to dull the effect of any lipstick. If you feel your lip shade got too dark, just apply a coat of ‘London’ on top and you’ll be good to go.
