Let Ankita be your guide for summertime gorgeousness .
Look hot this summer is mandatory. While it’s sweltering outside, there’s no dearth of summery buys, from coconut-scented body lotion and vibrant nail polishes to rum-spiked lip gloss and gorgeous bronzers, to keep you looking H-O-T all season long. But with all the sweat and grime around we’ve decided to simplify your choices to just five essentials guaranteed to keep you looking fresh as a daisy.
Colored Liner
A swipe of turquoise blue or forest green instant lights up the eyes and is super easy to incorporate in your look too. I love adding a dash of color to the waterline and lower lash line to brighten up eyes on balmy summer days. Maybelline has a beautiful range of colored kohls that make flaunting bright liner easily affordable. My personal favorite is the shade Turquoise which looks beautiful on brown eyes. Give black a break this summer and make a colorful splash.

Tinted Lip Balm
There are always days when you don’t feel like wearing much makeup when it’s sweltering outside. But a tinted lip balm in a sheer, bright color in a great way to add some moisture (the heat dehydrates the lips too) and a little color to the face without looking made up. I've been reaching for the Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Pop in Berry Bomb these days. The fruity flavor is refreshing and the sheer berry tint looks very flattering and natural on the lips. Pink Shock is also a great pick if you want a deeper tint of pink.

Bright Lipstick
Matte lips are all the rage right now and you can find matte lip colors from almost every brand. Mattes are great for summers because they don’t melt and get messy like very creamy lipsticks. My pick this summer is the newly launched Lakme Absolute Sculpt Matte Lipstick which combines rich pigment with a soft matte, comfortable formula. Shades like Tangerine Lush and Rose Bloom are great for day wear while deeper shades like Plum Spell and Red Rush are perfect to glam up summer evenings.

Light Protective Base
Most of us dread wearing foundation during the day in summer, especially if you’re heading out. I opt for a light to medium coverage BB or CC cream preferably with a satin or matte finish to avoid foundation meltdowns. The Colorbar Perfect Match BB Cream is a good option as it isn’t too heavy yet gives enough coverage to even out the skin tone. The added SPF is a bonus that adds a layer of protection over and above regular sunscreen. I’ve found that using a mattifying primer like the Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer under the BB cream goes a long way in keeping my skin fresh and oil-free. You should try it too!

Bright Nail Colors
Summer is a great time to flash bright and bold nail color. Such a fun way to go colorful without permanent commitment! Bright corals, pinks and oranges are my top picks during the summer and some great options are Fiesty Fuchsia and Keep up the Flame from the Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer (In 40 shades) range. I also love China Flower from the Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel range. Water babies will particularly love Blazing Blue from the Maybelline Color Show Bright Sparks Nail Polish collection!
