Reader's Request

Christina, a loyal reader has asked me

"To give a list of budget makeup suiting Indian women and which are the best concealers available in India?"

Its very important to have very few things in your makeup bag but have them branded as high end brands promise better results when compared with drugstore brands.
You can hunt for multi-use products rather than individual if you are tight on budget. For eg. opt for a Stick Foundation rather than a liquid foundation, powder and concealer, as it solves the purpose of all three. In this way you can save money and spend on a good quality one.
Use tinted moisturisers to give enough color and sheer coverage or mineral foundations that give a flawless makeup without damaging the skin.
Here's a list of some products that one must have in her vanity case.

1.Shiseido the Makeup Stick foundation Rs.1675
It triples up as a foundation, concealer and powder and gives coverage from sheer to full. It has 3D powder and nano powder that blend in to give a flawless finish. Generally O40 and O60 go perfect on Indian complexions.

2.L'Oreal Mineral Foundation Rs.850
The first of its kind to hit the Indian market, this award wining foundation does a lot to your skin. It gives flawless coverage, hides imperfections and redness and suits sensitive skin. Since its talc free and has mica in it, it hardly causes allergies. The built in brush makes application easy.Its a budget buy and totally worth it.

3.Max Factor Masterpiece mascara with IFx technology Rs.380
This award winning mascara is a steal for every beauty junkie or beautiholic. The wand has a plastic or rubber brush with tiny bristles that comb throught the teeniest possible lashes.

4.Chambor Eyeshadow Trio Rs.395
This richly pigmented and shimmer loaded eyeshadows can be used anywhere and everywhere.The formulation is long staying and crease resistant. The shadows have an unusually creamy texture and go on weightlessly and blend really well.

5.Maybelline Shine seduction lipglosses Rs.269
This shiny glosses impart a high voltage shine on the lips to give the most glossiest lips you can ever have.Its a steal and an addiction.

6.Loreal Tru match range {price on request}
This range consists of finely milled compact powders, super blendable liquid foundation and heavy duty concealers. These do a fabulous job in solving skin queries and have a wider spectrum of colors to go on most of the Indian skins.

7.Max Factor Age Renew Foundation Rs.590
Want to see how you looked 20 yrs ago. This award winning foundation will do that for you. With lens particles that reflect light in all directions minimise the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes on the skin. Gives super natural radiance to the skin.

8.Bourjois 3D effet lipglosses Rs.425
They are known to enhance the pout and give Angelina Jolie-esque lips to even the most thin lipped lady.

For the best concealers in the market that come in affordable range I swear by Loreal Tru match concealers that go effortlessly on your skin, blend perfectly and moisturise the skin. For professional usage Kryolan Supra foundation is the creamiest and heaviest foundation that can go flawlessly on the skin.No wonder it is used by Bollywood as well as some Hollywood stars.
