No matter how many lip colours, eye liners, kajals, mascaras and blushes you have, if you don’t have a foundation, your makeup kit is not complete. If you have ever noticed a makeup specialist’s cosmetic bag, then you know that it is the first thing she picks up. You will find that 7 out of 10 people who use makeup prefer Lakme Absolute foundation over the many others that are available in the market. And that’s because Lakme offers more than just one type of foundation. We all know that the shade which suits our friend might not suit our skin tone. And Lakme, understanding this need, offers a wide range of foundations such as creamy, mousse, liquid, foam and powder foundations. Lakme foundation prices are more reasonable than others and can be bought online.
But so many options can easily confuse anyone who’s buying foundations for the first time. So here are a few tips to help you get the shade right from the very first purchase.
How to Buy the Right Lakme Foundation?
There are mostly these three important factors to consider while buying Lakme foundations:
- Skin Type – Those who have a normal skin type are really lucky as they can apply any type of foundation, be it water-based or gel-based. But they still need to make sure they’ve got the shade right. For women with dry skin, the products which come with added moisturizer are the best foundations; avoid matte products and look for ones that are oil-based and tinted. But if you have oily skin, then water-based and matte foundations are great for minimizing the greasy look. Having said this, finding a foundation for combination skin is tricky. The best thing would be to pick powdered foundations. Girls with acne-prone skin should avoid using oil-based foundations at all cost. Go for powder or liquid ones instead.
- Shade – To get that flawless look and even out all your skin tone, you will need to buy a foundation that matches the shade of your skin. Otherwise your face might look too dull or too white. Make sure you apply a little on your hand and also on your jawline to test if it blends with your natural skin colour. The different shades of Lakme Absolute foundation that are available are porcelain, ivory, sand, beige, warm beige, natural, honey, golden and rose fair.
- Coverage – Those of you who wish to get a natural look should go with sheer foundation, because they provide the lightest coverage. On the other hand medium coverage foundations have a comparatively thicker consistency and hide the blemishes and minor imperfections in your skin. Full coverage foundations are best for occasions like weddings and photo shoots because they can hide acne marks quite well.
Lakme Absolute foundations are available in water-based, powder-based, gel-based, oil-based and mineral makeup varieties. So whichever you choose, make sure it goes well with your skin. Only then can you get that flawless look. Some of the popular Lakme Absolute foundations bought in India are Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse, as they suit most Indian skin tones, Lakme Absolute mattreal Skin Natural Mousse, and Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover Foundation. So select a foundation and order one online.
