If you saw our coverage on @Nykaabeautybook, you’ll know about the beauty marathon at Lotus Makeup India Fashion Week left us awestrucl. With a slew of different kinds of lip colors, hairstyles, full curly, braided ponytails and abstract makeup, #LMIFW gave us some looks to recreate and some to save in our #MakeupInspos.

Makeup For Expression

What better than using makeup to depict effects of Damentia on World Mental Health day? With abstract face painting hand sculpted wire headgears that evoked confusion and horror, the audience was at loss of words. While we wouldn’t necessary recreate these, it has definitely inspired us to break the rules, grab some colourful products and express our feelings.

The Indian Goddess

We LOVE slick back hair and how it turns a saviour for any occasion. Try a complete backward swoop or a even a middle parting. Use some gel or serum to give the ‘wet look effect’ and a facial oil or dewy foundation to create that base. Pro tip: Mix highlighter into your matte foundation to create the perfect base. Don’t forget the mascara – it makes all the difference. There’s nothing about this look that doesn’t shine.

Made in Heaven

If you’re amongst those who love a muted beauty look with a neatly done open ‘do, you’re not alone. Feathery brows, muted lips, sleek hair, a flush of color on the cheek and classic kohled eyes – Sobhita’s beauty look was simple and sexy, per usual. We’d call it made in heaven. You could rock this one for a cocktail party, Diwali party, house party or even a wedding.

College romance

Amidst dark eyebrows and classic wings, petal pink eyeshadow with angled brows and college braids with ponytails made a comeback. The eyeshadow was swept across the lids and extended on the lower lash to add the feminine touch. Our fave part? No heat, no sacrificing the health of your hair and you’re G2g!

For the ones who love to experiment. Glitter is back like never before, so feel free to go all out! Brush your hair into a middle parting, spray a lil’ hairspray over the root section and sprinkle on the glitter of your choice. Makeup? A strong clean base is what will put the look together, so have your trustee products to depend on.
