Choosing the right skin care products are extremely important as face is that part of the body that is seen first and using the wrong kind of products may spoil the skin. Make sure you use products that not only suit your skin type, but also protect the texture of the skin.
Apart from the basic moisturizers and toners, next thing to keep in mind while buying for cosmetics and makeup products are the makeup brands. Always test the makeup to see if it sit’s well on the skin and make sure it does not look patchy. Neither should the makeup wear off in a few minutes after wearing.
Eyes are the windows to your soul, hence use a good kajal or a great iconic dual kajal cum eyeliner that expresses your moods. You can try different ways of wearing your eyeliner based on the event you wish to attend. Luxola, who have recently launched in India, have a great eyeliner for you to try.
Choosing the appropriate brand is tricky, as you have to pick one from the pool of names – all sugar coated with marketing gimmicks. Do have a read to find out the leading beauty companies in India!
A product of Unilever Brand, Lakme is probably the most trusted makeup brand over generations.

Probably this is the only brand in India which has a love-hate relationship with its consumers in India. As old as 50 years, this brand has been slowly gripping the Indian market over 2 decades now. This makeup brand offers a wide range of skin, makeup and health care products.
Unlike other brands that are available at the retail stores, this brand is rather availed through their executives and this is the only reason, it’s not directly competing with the mainstream market. Plus, the consumers not only buy its products at a discounted rate but are eligible to sell the items gaining some scoring points.
Recently, Amway launched a woman’s exclusive skin care range called Attitude which is being widely advertised on the television these days. There is another offshoot of the Amway range .That is called Artistry. This offers exclusive colour cosmetics products.
Maybelline New York is considered among the luxury cosmetic brands next to L’Oreal and Avon. The best thing about this brand is that it has never come up with a range that hasn’t been an instant hit be it locally or globally.
Their products have always been awesome! Right from their diamond shine and high end water shine lipsticks to their fabulous range of eye tattoos that has been recently launched; there is no match to their items. Their colossal kajal and volume express mascara have also created a huge craze in the market recently and are strong contenders of Lakme Eyeconic Kajal.

The brand offers a huge range of great coverage and long staying foundations and great range of lip colours.

Avon products include fragrances, skin care products, personal care, hair care, cosmetics and more. Recently, Maria Sharapova has been named the face of Avon.
Avon was started when David H. McChnnel felt that women were sitting idle when their husbands went off to work. That’s when he realised that hiring female representatives would help in sales and growing the network as they have a better way of selling the products that they would love.
This has become of the loved makeup brands in India.
