Make-Up Studio produced an array of beauty looks at the recently wrapped up India Runway Week in Delhi. Here’s the runway report.

The capital recently hosted the India Runway Week with Make-Up Studio as official beauty partner. The professional make-up brand was instrumental in pulling off some of the most innovative looks for a stellar line-up of designers such as Rina Dhaka, James Ferreira, Amit Talwwar, Saaj by Ankita, Nitya Bajaj, Anjalee & Arjun Kapoor, among others.

Coral rules the day
From sleek styles to dewy finishes, the backstage beauty team left no stone unturned in amping up the glamour and creativity on stage. The make-up mood board for the 3-day event heavily featured this year’s Pantone shade ‘Living Coral’ as well as lighter shades in peach. We caught up with the make-up team to identify the top beauty trends from India Runway Week S/S 2019.

Textured hair was a runway staple, however, hairstyles did range from ponytails to wavy to sleek ‘dos. Talking about one of the most creative looks, Rama Gusain Sandhu, Senior Trainer at Make-Up Studio, shares, “James Ferreira wowed us with fuschia pink yarn around his models’ faces, with the hair going wild and dramatic. As for make-up, it was completely electric with hot pink lips and super smoky eyes.”

Creative vibes
Rina Dhaka’s show presented tasselled braids with pompoms and mohawks on top. Brown smokey eyes with nude lips were accompanied by dramatic Trishuls on the forehead and other motifs on the arms and chins.
Amit Talwwar kept it vintage and clean with a centre-parted hair, while Varija Bajaj went for free-flowing tresses in bandanas. Matching up to Amit’s innovative silhouettes, the make-up team created statement looks that played up to the vintage theme with plum smokey eyes and brown lips.

Talking about the season’s backstage trends, Avleen Bansal – Technical Manager at Make-Up Studio, concludes, “This year’s looks were quite unique as compared to previous editions. Fashion weeks are not just for the clothes, they set trends for hair and make-up too. As a brand, Make-Up Studio focuses on looks with different textures and finishes to complement the designers’ creations on the runway.”
