Poppy blue eyes with a hint of metallic: courtesy Bhumi Pednekar
Recently on Insta we happened to stumble on this selfie, where Bhumi Pednekar is seen sporting poppy blue eyes and it took us straight to the land of aqua-teal makeup!
The selfie came as a realisation that we need to (urgently) drop those brown and grey eyeshadows and move on to those untouched blues in our eyeshadow palettes! The blue eyeshadow looks great on her and the use of metallic tones is just the right amount of extra! If you know what we mean.
Get the look:
To ace poppy blue eyes like Bhumi’s start by prepping your eyelids with an eyeshadow primer. Then use a blue eye pencil like the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Kajal in Blue Sapphire to cover your entire upper lid. Now set it with a blue eyeshadow. We love the teal blue shade from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Silver. Once you’ve evenly applied the blue eyeshadow, dab the silver from the same palette onto your lids just to add that metallic finish. Lastly, finish the look with the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara in Black to add definition to your eyes.

This golden glow picture that appeared on Yami Gautam’s Insta profile, has had us swooning at her lit glow! The Fair and Lovely girl is seen sporting an understated, bronzed glow and apparently it is an Instagram trend that has inspired the look. Well, all we care about is acing a glow like Yami’s so let’s just find out how.
Get the look:
When the goal is to achieve a golden glow you better start with a primer and we are laying our bets on the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Primer to make sure you get the perfect base. Follow it up with a foundation that will give you complete coverage and luminous skin. The Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Foundation we think will do the trick and give you just the glow.
For your eyelids we suggest you opt for bronze, golden or champagne shades of eyeshadow. Opt for the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Gold and follow it up with a volumising mascara.
Now for the heroes of this look - use the Lakmé Absolute Moon Lit Highlighter - to strobe the high points of your face! Finish the look with a lip gloss or a nude shade of lipstick.
Oxblood lips with a deep hued outfit: courtesy Parineeti Chopra
Parineeti Chopra, who is known for sticking to safe pinks and nudes took a big step ahead with her makeup game this week and showed us just how to carry oxblood lips with a deep purple outfit!
Dressed in a floral vintage gown by Shantanu & Nikhil, mascara laden lashes, statement eyebrows, glossy glowing skin and oxblood lips, Pari totally took us back to the dark lips era! Ladies, take cue from Pari on how to work dark lips with a deep coloured outfit.
Get the look:
To get Parineeti’s well balance makeup look and to wear those oxblood lips to perfection you need the deep and dark hue called Red Smoke from the Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color range. To make sure your eyes compliment your lips just like Pari’s, use the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara in Black and allow it to add an edge to your eyes.
