Makeup essentials every girl must own - 1
Still trying to build that perfect makeup bag? Your wish is our command! Shaanmu spills the beans on all the essentials every girl must own. These have been tried and tested on some of the most beautiful, famous faces in the country and they swear by them too!
Eyelash curler
If there’s one product you must own, this is it. Always wondered how actresses have perfect lashes? “An eyelash curler is the most underrated tool that works like magic. It instantly lifts lashes and opens up your eyes for that doll-like look” he says. Shu Umera and NYX Professional Makeup Eyelash Curler 1.6 ounces are his fav ones! After curling it’s a must to swipe on a layer or two of mascara. He recommends Maybelline New York’s Lash Sensational Mascara.
Lip balm
Keeping your lips hydrated and healthy needs to be part of your daily routine. “It may be a drugstore product but it really works. Maybelline’s Baby Lips is a must-have.” This dou8ble duty buy nourishes lips like a balm and adds a dash of color too. What’s not to love?
Shaanmu loves multipurpose products and The Body Shop’s Lip and Cheek Stain is at the top of his list. “A few drops on your cheek give a lovely dewy look and suits all skin tones!” For blush lovers he suggests L'Oreal Paris’ Lucent Magique Blush Blushing Kiss for that hint of rosy flush.
Setting powder
If you’re a makeup junkie, then you’re familiar with translucent setting powder that has been raved about by makeup artists the world over. Shaanmu says applying Inglot Translucent Face Loose Powder or NYX Professional Makeup HD Finishing Powder is the secret behind achieving that flawless finish!
Eyebrow mascara
Shaan’s next is a secret to get your eyebrows on fleek! “Filling in your brows is a step everyone forgets. Using NYX Professional Makeup Tinted Brow Mascara is the easiest way to get those perfect brows”. So swipe away! 
Wondering which base he currently loves? “L'Oreal Paris’ Infallible 24h Foundation is great for Indian skin tones and can be used on the body if you’re wearing a dress or an off-shoulder top” he says.
Dry shampoo
“A dry shampoo is another important product to always have handy. With the humidity in Mumbai keeping your hair looking perfect can be a task.” Get Batiste Dry Shampoo Instant Hair Refresh Fruity & Cheeky Cherry today!
Makeup setting spray
“Well last but not the least invest in L.A. Girl’s Pro. Setting HD Matte Finish Spray. This one is truly god sent!” Especially in humid, sultry climes like ours.
