1. Face Primer
Face Primer is a base that holds on your makeup so that it lasts longer. It also helps in smoothing any fine lines, wrinkles or pores. You can either use a gel primer, a cream primer or a powder primer. We recommend you the Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer if you are going for a photoshoot or attending an event.

2. Bronzer Contour
Contouring helps in making your cheekbones appear and your nose and chin appear slimmer. There is a subtle difference between bronzing and contouring, so here we recommend L.A.Girl Velvet Contour Bronzer Stick which comes in three shades Goddess, Brazen and Suede. Buy the shade a little darker than your face shade. Learn how to contour your face.

Concealer matches your skin tone and helps in masking your dark circles, pimples and large pores. Although foundation does the same work, concealer is slightly thicker and blends the imperfection perfectly. We recommend you L.A. Girl PRO Conceal HD because this particular one stays for a long time and comes in various shades to match your skin tone.

A compact is a super mattifying agent. Apply this over your foundation and after you apply a concealer so that it doesn't settle into fine lines or slide down your face. We recommend you Lakme 9 to 5 Flawless Matte Complexion Compact because it gives you a natural complexion and lasts for a day.

Eyelashes serve an important part of your entire makeup and mascara helps in enhancing and curling your eyelashes. Darken, thicken or lighten your eyelashes based on the occasion. We recommend you Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara because it makes your eyelashes look normal.

7. Makeup Remover
Before washing your face, it is important to dislodge the stubborn makeup with a makeup remover. We recommend you Lakme Absolute Bi-faced Makeup Remover. This unique formulation works in two ways- the oil phase lifts off makeup while the water phase refreshes and conditions skin without leaving any stickiness.
