Runway glitter and glam

by Arun Shirishkar

Buff those brushes and get ready to go all-out with style, this festive season with trends hot off the runway.

The runway of the recently wrapped up Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2018 left us with a potpourri of mane and make-up looks. So, take cues from the inspiring looks, and shine through this festive season!

Embracing colours

One of the major takeaways for the festive season are crease lines — they are back and how! As seen in the shows of Urvashi Joneja and EKA, the avant-garde crease lines were a strong element of this edition! One can definitely translate this trend into a more wearable way. The key to emulate is ‘keeping rest of the face neutral with a healthy glow.’

When it doubt, wing it out!

Coloured winged eyeliners are taking the runways the world over by storm. This look is getting some major love from MUAs across the globe. These coloured strokes could be your best festive interpretations — as presented in the shows of Kanika Goyal, Puchki and Shanti. Their runway look featured a beautiful teal green extended liner with contoured cheeks and muted lips. One can even consider haute hues like red, pink, white and green to keep up with the festive glitz. Vriksh by Gunjan Jain’s look on Day 2 also stood a classic example for a double winged eyeliner in the stunning shades of black and violet! 

A rainbow of mascara

While deriving cues from Arpita Mehta’s show, load up your top and lower lashes with yellow mascara. Perhaps, one can also try shades like white, fuschia, hot pink, eclectic blue, lavender (our personal favourite though). Apply a couple of layers of coloured mascara, while balancing the look with a neutral lip stain. Leave the rest to bask in natural beauty. Let the colours on the lips and eyes take centrestage. Keeping it simple is sophistication. 

All eyes on lips

Be it mesmerising matte or glossy satin finish, it was a fancy feast for the eyes that made us pay special attention to the pretty pouts. Case in point: Punit Balana, Nachiket Barve, Arvind Ampula, Payal Singhal and Yogesh Chaudhary showed us different variations of the lips shades . For Singhal’s show, models flaunted ombré lips.

Glitter, glitter everywhere!

Glitter is the spotlight of the 2018 festive beauty book — from bedazzled brows to shimmer-flecked lids and glitter-adorned pouts. The way to nail the bejewelled beauty look is the correct technique, as revealed by the backstage experts.

 Oh, that healthy glow!

Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2018 was about high-shine finish and radiant. Models at the shows of Ashish N Soni, Kartikeya, Amit Aggarwal, Gunjan Jain, Jayanti Reddy and Buna gave us another reason to go big on blush.
