As the mercury level soars, the humidity in the air will make it difficult to wear any makeup without irritatinhg your skin. Here's a guide to help you pack in summer friendly trends in your beauty kit to look effortlessly ready for the sun-kissed season.
Let the skin breathe

Make sure you wash the face with a good face wash and apply a thin coat of moisturiser on wet skin. Blemish balms or BB creams have a light texture, they blend in well, and make you look flawless. This light base will last all day and for touch ups, you can simply dab loose, translucent powder or a compact.
Your best options are: Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Skin Perfector BB cream, L'Oreal Paris True Match BB Cream, Revlon PhotoReady BB cream, Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder, Elle 18 Glow Compact, Lakme 9 to 5 Flawless Creme Compact
Play up your eyes
Eye shadows in pastel shades are a rage across the globe and you can add more colour to the eyes by applying colourful liner. They can be your best friend this season. Simply outline the upper lid of your eyes with a bright, summery colour and add a hint of the same on the lash line for a glam finish. Add volumes of mascara to the lashes for that beautiful effect.

Your best options are: L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Palette, M•A•C Mineralize Eyeshadow, Eye Liner Lakme 9to5 Impact Liner, Maybelline The Volum’ Express Colossal Mascara, Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara

Blush on happily

Add a dash of apricot or coral blusher on the apples of your cheeks to keep the look fresh. You can define the cheekbone further with a hint of highlighter.
Your best options are: Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush, Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos, NYX Rouge Cream Blush, Rimmel 3 in1 Multi Tonal Powder Blush

Go soft on lips:
Even in this season, the lips can go dry and chapped. So apply a tinted lip balm during the day and a pink or coral lipstick in the evening. Finish with a dash of lip gloss to define the pout further.
Your best options are: Bobbi Brown Essential Lipstick, Lakme Absolute Creme Lipcolor, Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Polish Liquid Colour balms, Oriflame Power Shine Lip gloss
