This post is in collaboration with Pond’s and NDTV Get The Look show
When the weather is this hot and humid, you want to apply something light on your face and my choice this summer has been the Pond’s White Beauty BB+cream with SPF 30. I like this cream because it is not only lightweight but also mattifies the skin, is tinted, has sunscreen and blends very well to give an even tone to the skin. You can use this cream as a base to create a number of makeup looks and in this post, I’ll show you three summer looks that I’ve created with the Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Cream. The looks are what I call Summer Glow, Summer Bright and Summer Glam. All three are very simple and does not take a lot of time, effort or products to create.
First up, is the Summer Glow look. I’ve used Pond’s BB+ cream as the base and the ‘glow’ is courtesy a highlighter. I’ve used a powder highlighter on my eyes and also on my cheekbones, forehead, nose and a little bit on the chin. You can use any liquid or powder highlighter. For extra coverage, I’ve used a concealer. I’ve lined my eyes with a black liner and on the lips, I’ve used a coral gloss.
Summer is all about bright colors and the easiest way to incorporate color in makeup is to use a colored eye pencil. In this Summer Bright look, I’ve used a bright blue eye pencil to line the upper and lower lash line and several coats of mascara. The base remains the same with the Pond’s BB+ cream but here, I’ve not used a highlighter and kept the skin matte. On the lips, I’ve applied a bright pink lipstick.
My signature look is red lips with smokey eyes and I had to do one :). In this Summer Glam look I’ve mixed a bit of foundation with the Pond’s BB+ cream for extra coverage. Concealer on the problematic areas and dark brown smokey eyes . On my lips, I’ve applied a red lipstick.
Let me know which look you liked 🙂
