3 office-approved beauty looks
Cover your bases with the Lakmé 9 To 5 Mousse Foundation to make each look stand out
Even when you’re a pro at winging your eyeliner or blending your eyeshadow, you need to first ace your base. Foundation is known to be a tricky product – it needs to match your skin type, the shade should fit perfectly and it simply must blend. Lakmé’s 9 To 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation preps your skin for a flawless finish that’ll make the rest of your make-up hold up throughout the day. While creating a different beauty look for work heavily relies on how much time you’re left with in the morning rush, we give you three looks to suit every time frame.
If you’re rushing with only 5 minutes to spare:
Once you’ve spent the first two minutes on foundation – it blends quickly without ugly streaks and matches all skin types – start with your eyes. Dust brown eyeshadow all over your eyelid and line your upper waterline with black kajal for definition. Wearing lipstick always makes it look like you made an effort – pick a warm red.

If you’ve got 10 minutes on hand:
Draw a quick line along your eyelids for an instant lift. Try monochrome make-up and dust a pink blush across your cheekbones (the foundation will look after your blemishes) with a glossy pastel pink lip. Perfect if you’re stepping out for a lunch meeting.
If you woke up early and can give your face 15 minutes:
Skip the concealer; the Lakmé mousse foundation conceals dark circles, too. Plus, with a lightweight, matte base, you won’t even need any touch ups throughout the day. Try a metallic blue eyeshadow – wear it till your crease line and blend a little bit of black pigment on the line. Apply two coats of mascara and finish with a nude lip to balance your look.
