What better than beginning with the basics! One of the major skincare concerns this season will be tanning, and this just what you need on your spring-summer must-have list. Enriched with SPF 50 the mattifying, tinted lotion works as a great make-up base too. Pump a small quantity of this product and dab on your face before stepping out in the sun. Now that's one multi-tasking product!

Nykaa has launched an exciting new range of matte lipsticks. I've tried the entire range! The collection has 8 different shades of nudes. My favourite one is Haute Fudge. The shade veers towards the darker side of brown and has a matte effect that lasts up to 6-8 hours. If you do buy the NYX Contour Palette, this shade of lipstick will complement it beautifully.

Still looking for the perfect eyeliner to create the cat eyes of your dreams? For ages, I struggled too until I found this amazing liner from L'Oreal Paris. The waterproof liner (which by the way is great for the minimal make-up you'd want to sport on Holi) gives a classic sheen to your eyes and comes in four different shades. The sponge tipped pen makes the application super easy. I've been using this for a year now!

As this festive season demands a decent amount of skincare, you can't miss out on facial masques. A product that can help you get rid of a tan, smoothen and brighten your skin, and meet all your summer needs in one go. Gently dab the mask on after mixing with a dash of lukewarm water. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse. This will remove excess oil and exfoliate your skin. Make sure you moisturize after patting your face dry.

Playing with color and the scrubs that follow to get it off can leave your skin dry and irritated. Think no more. Just grab this delicately fragranced body lotion that is enriched with Shea Butter and moisturizing Hyaluronic Acid to keep your body smooth and soft. I especially love the floral scent of Tangerine Blossoms and Gardenia that stay on your skin for hours.
