If you scroll through fashion and beauty blogger Neha Menghwani aka Stylessential’s Instagram feed, you’ll know her love for colour. The one who never shies away from loading up on highlighter or trying out the wackiest of trends (we see feathered lashes right ther), Neha made her way to the Lakmé Fashion Week, wearing ultra-bomb eye makeup—winged eyeliner with a hint of silver on the inner and outer corner of her eyes coupled with dramatic lashes.

Neha’s makeup hack: “As opposed to coating mascara from underneath your lashes, what I usually do is start from the top and then push my lashes upward. This little hack makes my lashes look thicker and voluminous.”

From recreating quirky runway looks to being her experimental self, Trishala’s got, not one, but three easy-peasy makeup hacks that you’d want to steal RN.

Trishala’s makeup hacks: “For someone like me who’s constantly on-the-go, I need to master makeup tricks that save me time. So, what I usually do is use my contour as a brown eyeshadow, my lipstick as a blush-on and my highlighter on my lids too.”

Shikha Talsania, who rose to fame with Veere Di Wedding, was seen attending Nachiket Barve’s show on day 3 at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter Festive 2019. The actress looked fab in a black midi number that she teamed with silver peep-toes. And, guess what? Shikha did her own makeup for the event. Boy, are her skills on point!

Shikha’s makeup hack: “I always add some brightening concealer on the inner corner of my eyes to give more definition to my eye makeup.”
