5 Bedazzling Beauty Looks From Lakmé Fashion Week FW’15

The fashion world has blessed us with yet another occasion to drool all over ourselves – the Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive ‘15. Starting 26th August, onlookers in Mumbai shall witness a riot of designs, trends and style statements. We bring to you the top 5 looks from this style parade that have set the ramps ablaze.

Kohl Play : AM:PM

AM:PM

An eye-catching look and a guaranteed shot head-turner, this look is for the bold and experimental. With the spotlight shining bright at and around the eyes, this look involves a nude base and full on kohl/eyeliner drama.

How To:

Start off by your moisturizer-foundation regime and finish by applying concealer to cover up the tired patches to give a clean look. Dab your lips with a clear balm and a natural lip color. Follow up with this tutorial to get the whole look!

What To:

  1. Catrice Long Lasting Eye Pencil
  2. Natio Lash Definition Mascara Black

Dusky Dame : IKAI BY RAGINI AHUJA

IKAAI

Pulling the limelight a bit towards the pout, this look is for them dames who want to highlight their lips. Bare minimum emphasis on the eyes and a sultry lip color makes this an excellent look for ladies with a gorgeous dusky skin tone.

How To:

This look involves minimal hoopla around the eyes with just a simple kohl line, a puff of shadow and mascara doing the trick just fine. Pick out a lip liner and color that compliment each other and your skin as well (without making you look gothic). Refer to this video for the steps.

What To:

  1. Natio Lip Colour Paradise
  2. Catrice Long Lasting Eye Pencil

Indian Garb: GAURANG SHAH

GAURANG

This look is a little bit of everything and a whole lot of elegant. The slightly heavy – not overdone – eyes compliment the vivid lip shades to bring out a striking Indian reflection of a woman. With the heavy mascara-ed and shadowed lids adding a slight oomph to the guise, this one spells out glamorous!

How To:

With your make up base in place, start with the eyes. Puff on some dark eyeshadow or let a smoky eye pencil do the trick. Follow this with a fine outline around your eyes with kohl. Finish up the eyes with heavy strokes of mascara. Fill in your lips using a stunning red hue.

What To:

  1. Thalgo Indoceane Silky Smooth Cream
  1. Natio Flawless Foundation SPF 15 Medium
  1. Catrice Smokey Eyes Pencil

Incomplete Stroke: RINKU SOBTI

RINKU-SOBTI

An interesting take on the smoky eye look, the incomplete stroke gives a carefully unkempt look. Which is confusing and beautiful at the same time. This eye do goes with just about any kind of make or none at all. Just do your liner magic and dance along! Call it a 21st century variant of the retro eye, if you must.

How To:

Even out the area around your eyes. Start off from the corner of your eye, making a crisp stroke and end it just about halfway through your under eye. Give it an edgier finish by applying mascara (only on your upper lashes). Believe it or not, you’re done!

What To:

  1. Madara Moon Flower Rose Beige – Tinting Fluid
  1. Benefit Fake Up Concealer

Ombre Lips : NIKHIL THAMPI

NIKHIL-THAMPI

The name says it all. Pick out two shades of lip color and get shading!

How To:

Powder your lips with a mineral foundation and line it with a lip pencil, filling in your lips halfway in the process. Color the bare of your lips with the different lip color. Blend in both the colors and clean up using a concealer. And pout!

What To:

  1. Eminence Organics Vanilla Cream Antioxidant Mineral Foundation
  1. Catrice Longlasting Lip Pencil
