    Get ready with Lune: feat. Leeza Mangaldas


    "Since my work involves crazy travel and hectic schedules I ensure my daily makeup routine takes no more than 15 minutes, but lasts all day. 

    I like to create a very natural but flawless look, that transitions well from day to night. 

    I start with a skin equalizing primer from Make Up Forever, followed by my go to foundation- Mac Studio Fix in NC 37. Then I use the Studio Skin 24 Hour concealer in light/medium from Smashbox to cover the under eye area and to add some matte highlights to my nose, forehead, and cupid’s bow. 

    To contour (just a little) I prefer powder compacts to creamier options since its pretty warm and humid in Mumbai. Lately I’ve been using the Makeup Revolution Ultra Bronze on the edges of my forehead and jaw, and to define my nose, and it works great. 

    Next come what I think of as the two most high impact elements of my routine—the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in bronze, which adds a really lovely glow to your cheek bones, and the Clinique Pretty Easy eyeliner pen whose smooth tip allows the perfect winged look. These two products just wake up the whole look. 

    I don’t always wear mascara unless I’m shooting, because taking it off can be a bit of a process and I’m lucky to have lashes that are naturally quite full. 

    I usually finish up my routine with a rosy-nude lip color, or, when I’m feeling sassy I like using Ruby Woo by Mac, it’s a legendary red.

    Then comes my favorite part—completing the look with a jewel or two. When done right, a bit of metal or sparkle just makes your whole look so much fancier, and more glam. An accessory I love right now is my gorgeous pair of Sade hoops from Lune.

    I’m very disciplined about skin care and I ensure I cleanse, wash, tone and moisturize my face morning and night: I use Clinque’s Take The Day Off range of micellar makeup removers and wipes, followed by a lightly exfoliating sea salt cleanser from Innisfree, and then this fragrant, gentle green tea toner from Aesop. Finally it’s Clinique Moisture Surge in the morning or Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair before bed."
