Jugni Style Editorial Director Manjot Bains shares her must-have items for your makeup bag.
No more shiny forehead
I’m a t-zone gal, which means I’m guilty of having a shiny forehead, nose and chin. I suffered from excessive shininess during the IIFA Awards in Toronto, but the wonderful people at the Eaton Centre Sephora had just the thing for me: Makeup Forever HD. It goes on clear and makes your skin smooth and camera-ready. Perfecto. Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder, $30 | Sephora.com
My go-to blush is NARS Orgasm. There’s a reason why one of our first stories was on this versatile product. Put it on your eyelids, use as a highlighter or dust your cheeks for a sexy flush. NARS Blush in Orgasm, $29 | Available at Sephora.com, and at The Bay and Holt Renfrew locations across Canada
Not quite Bollywood, but MAC’s Fluidline in Blacktrack is an easy-to-apply gel liner that makes my eyes look larger than they are. Use an angled brush (I use a MAC brush) and apply along your upper lash as thick or thin as you like. Create winged tips at the ends for a more dramatic look. Anyone can do it. The first time I used liquid eyeliner, I got it all over my eyeball, and look how far I’ve come? MAC Cosmetics Fluidline in Blacktrack, $18 | MACCosmetics.com
Come hither lashes
I have very fine, sparse eyelashes, unlike Jugni Style Co-Founder Joti Dhesi, who has natural lush, curly lashes (damn her!). If you’re iffy about fake lashes, consider a good eyelash curler (I use Bobbi Brown) and a thickening, curling mascara. For my sensitive eyes, I use Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara. It comes off with warm water, but stays put throughout the day. Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara, $18 | Sephora.com, and Clinique counters at Holt Renfrew, Sears and The Bay across Canada
Despite the several makeup products above, I like to keep skincare as natural as possible. For soft, silky lips, my go-to product is Burt’s Bees lip balm. Natural and moisturizing, it keeps the person touching my lips happy. Burt’s Bees Lip Balm, under $5 | Available at Shopper’s Drug Mart, Rexall and other drugstores across the country
