Feeling confused because of the thousands of makeup products available in the market? No, you don’t need them all! You need not spend your time and money on exotic products and tons of makeup brushes when all you need is a handful of products to look your best, every single day.

All-In-One BB Cream

Makeup and skincare come together in modern-day BB creams that hydrate the skin as well as hide imperfections, making them an indispensable part of any practical makeup kit.


We recommend Nykaa SKINgenius BB Cream SPF30, an affordable multi-tasker that combines natural ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Green Tea, Cucumber, and Jojoba to make your skin visibly radiant in addition to providing sun protection. You can find several other BB creams by top brands such as Bobby Brown and The Body Shop on


Kohl, Liner, and Mascara

Perfect for an all-in-one makeup kit, the deep black Eyeconic Kajal pencil by Lakme doubles as a kajal and eye-liner, giving your eyes a defined look. The kajal is smudge proof and lasts for up to 22 hours.


Complete the look with the waterproof Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara that promises dramatic, intensely curled lashes.


An Eye Palette

No professional makeup kit is complete without an eye palette. Budget-friendly and bang on trend, we love The Rock Nudes Palette by Maybelline New York that includes a heady mix of muted nudes and flashy tones to unleash your creativity letting your experiment with new looks.


Lip Colours

Lip colours are central to building a makeup kit, and you definitely need a primer below your lip colour to keep it from wearing off soon. You can find a range of affordable lippies and primers by several brands starting as low as Rs. 100 for an Elle 18 Color Pop on online retailer websites such as Nykaa, Flipkart, and Amazon. We simply adore the Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick by Sugar.


For a multipurpose makeup kit, you can opt for the Lip and Cheek Velvet Stick by The Body Shop.


Loose Powder

This wonder product gives your skin a luminous and even finish by doubling as a finishing powder to set your makeup. You will certainly find a shade close to your skin colour in the mineral-based range by Faces available on
