One of our favourite things to do at Fashion Week (apart from people watching), is to spot some gorgeous beauty trends for the upcoming season. So, amidst all the chaos and a whole lot of stellar ensembles, we sneaked a peak backstage—and boy, were we blown away. From bold glitter-laden eyes, burgundy lips to lashes that went on for days, these gorgeous looks truly rivalled the one-of-a-kind clothes they were made to complement them.
We have rounded up our favourites for this season that you should definitely give a try. Scroll down for all the deets. PS: These will get your creative juices flowing.
The highlight of the look is the interesting eyeshadow placement. True, we don’t like doing things half way, but we will definitely make an exception for this one. Complementing the eye makeup is a dewy base, well-defined brows (ooh la la), voluminous lashes and a matte pink pout. Simple and edgy at once, you know this one’s perfect to save you the last-minute freak-out—or to woo your boo this Valentine’s day (wink wink).
Glitter never goes out of vogue. Case in point the high glam look that made quite a statement—both on and off the ramp. What we love though is the creative glitter accents around the lower lash line in conjunction with stunning metallic lids. Wowza; plus, chic muted lips that maintained a subtle balance. We recommend trying this look at a friend’s wedding or maybe at a music festival; this one gives you the best of both worlds. Time to get your glitter on.
Do you deem monochromatic look as boring? Well, think again. This season, get set to push your boundaries with the pretty Lavender hue (and nothing else); think smoky Lavender eyes, unkempt hair and a matte Lavender pout. We’d say keep the rest of the base dewy and lightweight. As for contour and blush? Thank you, next.
A fan of sunset eyes? Well, we have news for you. This season is all about extending these gorgeous sunset hues (Re: yellows, peaches and oranges), to well—your cheekbones and your temples. The right way to do this is to mix ‘n’ match these dreamy shades, so as to resemble a bold highlight and face contour. What’s not to love!
Pro tip – less is more.
SMOKESTROM (WITH A FRINGE)
The pop colour trend that keeps on giving: smokey blue eyeshadow (seriously, nothing makes eyes sparkle more). The surprise element though is the glossy pink pout that perfectly complements the eyes. To ace this look, apply a subtle base and opt for a simple hair-do. We are already saving this look for a night-out with the gals. How about you?
THE POISE ACT
If minimalism is your middle name, then this look is tailor-made for you. Take cues from Sayani Gupta who sported slicked back hair, luminescent skin, well-defined brows and a statement burgundy pout. Don’t forget the gorgeous highlight on cheekbones, forehead, bridge of the nose and collar bones—it’s is a true-blue game changer. Wear this to a cocktail party, bachelorette or even a formal event to turn heads and how!
The classic cat eye and red pout is a match made in heaven; and who better than Kareena Kapoor Khan to drive home the point! Effortlessly done, she paired the dazzling look with a slick-back ponytail, statement brows, well-contoured cheeks and voluminous lashes. You can’t ever go wrong with this one.
