Digitisation is the biggest achievement of this generation. Digitization has marked its entry in every field from every corner in everybody’s life and beauty industry is no different.

"Digital is really transformative in the way companies operate today. It has a big impact on business, it has a big impact on the way you interface with consumers, but you have to have the full support of the executive committee and of the CEO," said Lubomira Rochet, L'Oréal's chief digital officer.

The market size of India's beauty, cosmetic and grooming market will reach $ 20 billion by 2025 from the current $ 6.5 billion on the back of rise in disposable income of middle class and growing aspirations of people to live good life and look good, according to Assocham.

"My generation [Gen X] and older would probably see an advertisement, get some information, go into a store and buy it. … But shopping habits of younger generations are different. They do more research, they are armed with information, and they make decisions on their own versus looking for advice at the point of sale," Jane Lauder, president of cosmetics brand Clinique said.
