Standout beauty looks for instant glamor
It’s a return to au naturale glamor livened up with just hint of color. It’s time to bid adieu to the heavier makeup styles of the months gone by and embrace natural, zesty styles for carefree elegance and relaxed, sunny afternoons. Nykaa shortlists three distinctive trends likely to separate fashionable divas from stuck-in-time beauties.
If you’re in any doubt take a look at Kareena Kapoor, the face of Lakme’s Absolute Makeup range. Exciting, snazzy and vibrant colors reminiscent of exotic tropical flowers and birds are in and how! Say hello to brilliant fuchsia, juicy tangerine and vivid coral or plum or more tranquil pinks. In fact Lakme’s saucy new Pop Tint collection of bright and snappy lip tints in oranges, pinks and reds, and shimmer shadows in blue, green and coral is every sassy young thing’s dream collection.
The sky’s the limit as long as the look is bold. While the red lip is a classic, matte brights in deep plum, berry, fudge brown and ruby red have made a vivid comeback for quick evening glamor. You can pair down the intense color with a semi-matte overall texture. Nykaa loves shades 66, 201, 202, 203 and 205 from the Lakme Absolute Matte Lipstick range.

Pops and brights are not for the faint hearted. But the timid can experiment by applying these vibrant tints and letting the color sink in before gently wiping it off so it’s more stain than lipstick. To own the look, choose a color a couple shades brighter than your natural skin tone. Rule of thumb: pop tints and spunky pinks look great on fairer skins, true reds flatter wheatish beauties and burgundy looks awesome on dusky skin tones. Nykaa loves L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Matte Lipsticks, Maybelline Superstay 14 hr Lipstick‘s sparky pinks and Deborah Atomic Red Mat Lipstick‘s red range.
The most coveted eye makeup trend this summer is aqua eyes in dusky blue and emerald green. These aquatic hues have lit up practically every fashion runway from London to Mumbai. Think sea foam waves and azure Mediterranean skies.

There are limitless ways to own this cool trend. We love the startling peacock blue ombré lid, cobalt cat eye and midnight blue smoky eye. First-timers could start by just covering the upper lid with dark blue shadow, leaving the rest of the face bare. The more experienced can try their hand at turquoise shadow around the eyes for more drama while lining the lower lid with peacock blue liner is a fun and effective attention grabber. Check out Colorbar Color Intense Liquid Eyeliner (Midnight sky and Blue Lagoon shades), Deborah Extra Eye Pencil, L’Oreal Paris Superliner Luminizer Eye Liner (Blue), Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadow and Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 hr Cream Gel Shadow.
Forget the cakey, matte look. Summertime equals sticky humidity. Bollywood beauties Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone have mastered the natural, dewy look and so should you. Glowing, celestial skin is the new skin trend. Time to ditch heavy foundations and cover-ups and go with tinted moisturizers like Dermalogica Sheer Tint Moisture SPF15 – Medium and VLCC Enbrighten Tinted Sunscreen Souffle SPF 25 instead. Lighter cover ups allow skin to breathe, letting your glow shine through. Or give skin perfecting BB creams like Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream a try. They offer all-day moisturizing, glowing perfection and SPF protection.
Make it your style
If your skin—like many other women—is less than flawless, you’ll need a concealer like Revlon PhotoReady Concealer to minimize blemishes, dark spots, and under eye circles. It’s worth investing in a fine-pointed brush like Colorbar Picture Perfect Foundation Brush for smooth application and precision. If you want to use a foundation over the concealer, go with a barely- there powder formula because it gives a natural finish and is easy to touch up. We like the sheer weightlessness of Street Wear Stay on Mineral Foundation. However, if you want to cover up fine lines around the eyes and lips, try a liquid foundation such as Lakme Skin Naturelle Daily Foundation for better coverage.
Finish up by swirling soft pink blush on the apples of your cheeks, all the while blending it upward a little toward your ears. Nykaa recommends Lakme Absolute Cheek Chromatic Baked Blush or Revlon Photo Ready Sculpting Blush Palette to create a gorgeous, model-worthy glow along the ridge of your cheekbones.
