Lakme Fashion Week is a treat for us beauty junkies! From going gaga over some risky, edgy hairstyles to bookmarking some uber cool and unconventional makeup looks, this season has got us drooling over all the beauty trends that we’ve been spotting on the runway.
But do you know what the best part about fashion week is? Your favourite celebrity bringing some chic trends to life. One such look that instantly made our jaws drop was Diana Penty’s colour block makeup look as she walked the ramp for designer-duo Shivan and Narresh at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2020.
Diana’s look was good news for makeup maximalists. Midnight green on the eyes complemented her fuchsia pink lipstick so well, we couldn’t even. The diva’s makeup transported us back to the 80s when colour-blocking was a huge trend.
Here’s a step-by-step look decode to get you started.
Step 01: First things first. Moisturise your skin well before you go in with any makeup. We suggest you use the Pond’s Super Light Gel Oil Free Moisturiser, which is infused with hyaluronic acid and has an oil-free formula—a treat for oily-skinned beauties!
Step 02: Next, reach for a primer. The Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer will help your makeup last all through the evening. And that’s not all! A primer will also make sure your makeup glides on smoothly. Win-win!
Step 03: To create a matte base, get your hands on the Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse 16hr. Apply the foundation using a makeup sponge for a natural, non-cakey finish.
Step 04: Now conceal all skin imperfections using the Lakme Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick SPF 20. This concealer will not only hide blemishes, scars and dark spots, but also brighten your complexion.
Step 05: Add just a tinge of colour on your cheeks for a subtle rosy glow using the Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos-Coral Blush.
Step 06: Lastly, reach for a highlighter such as the Lakme Absolute Highlighter - Moon-Lit to finish off your face makeup. Loading up on highlighter for an evening occasion is going to add just the right amount of glam to your look.
Eyes & Lips
Eyes & Lips
Step 01: Start by applying primer onto your lids. If you want your heavy-duty eye makeup to last all through the night, then primer is your best bet.
Step 02: Brush your eyebrows using a spoolie. Then, reach for the Lakme Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil-Dark Brown to fill in your brows and to sharpen the arch for a defined look.
Step 03: Go in with a midnight green eyeshadow hue in shimmer texture from the Lakme Absolute Infinity Eyeshadow Palette-Coral Sunset and cover your lids entirely with the pigment, starting from your upper lash line all the way to your crease and beyond. With a flat, eyeshadow brush, extend the eyeshadow to your outer corner for a winged effect.
Step 04: Define your eye makeup with oodles of mascara. Use the Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara - Black for fuller, voluminous lashes. Alternatively, you can also reach for dramatic falsies.
Step 05: Team your midnight green eye makeup with a fuchsia pink lip colour such as the Lakme Absolute 3D Lipstick in the shade Frosty Pink, and voila!
