Vvani by Vani Vats’ ‘Piroi’ bridal collection is all about symbolism and reflecting the sacred institution of marriage with the help of pearls and threads. So, it only makes sense that the trending bridal makeup would include something traditional and timeless like a smokey eye.

3. Blush it Out

Péro’s ‘Cuckoo & Co.’ is exactly what it sounds like with mismatched, eccentric elements that still scream hobo-chic. Well, kudos to the makeup artists for sticking to the theme as we get a camp look without overdoing it. While the rest of the face is clean and even, the focus is the blush all over the cheeks and side of the face. A quirky twist on the Y2K sun-burnt blush, part of the latest makeup trends, this is perfect for those lazy days when you want to wear makeup but also don’t. 

How To: 

  • Lakmé Absolute Luminous Skin Tint Foundation offers an ideal sheer base that seamlessly melds with your skin, creating a second-skin effect. Jump in on the no makeup makeup trend with this lightweight skin tint, which provides the coverage of a foundation to conceal imperfections. 

  • Don’t worry if you have any breakouts or blemishes cause what are concealers for? Perfect your base with a pen concealer like the Lakmé Absolute Instant Airbrush Concealer Pen. With just a twist, get an airbrushed and blurry finish. It is like an eraser on the go, so dot and blend whenever you require! 

  • Apply the velvety blush from the Lakmé Absolute Face Palette to perfectly recreate this look. This blush offers a soft and buildable texture while nourishing your skin with argan oil. Blend it out in outward and upward motion to get a cohesive finish. 

  • Illuminate your cheekbones and brow bone with the lightweight and oil-free Lakmé Absolute Liquid Highlighter in a rosy-champagne shade that catches the light at just the right angle! 


4. Gold Glitter

Proud Assamese designer Sanjukta Dutta’s new collection ‘SAPOON’ is all about making dreams come true while sticking to her roots. Her contemporary take on traditional outfits like the mekhela chador coincides with the makeup as evident with the gold glitter eye makeup. 

How To: 

  • Create a dramatic winged eyeliner look using the waterproof and slightly frosted Lakmé Absolute Shine Line Eye Liner to add some flair. 

  • Complete the experimental eye makeup with the radiant and pigmented Lakmé Absolute Explore Eye Paint in its gold shade. Take the back of your eyeshadow brush, dip it in the eye paint and dot it along the black liner. 

  • With the latest makeup trends being all about matte finish with a hint of gloss, try the coffee shade from Lakmé Prime + Shine Lipstick. Equipped with a built-in primer, it remains smudge-free and intact throughout the day. 


5. Grunge Eyeliner

Bibhu Mohapatra takes inspiration from the modern Indian woman and the House of Lakmé to give us ‘Come Home’, a strong and bold collection that exudes feminine confidence and elegance at the same time. Of course, this means all the things we love about makeup from a rosy blush to pink lips and glittery highlighter. But the eyes make up the whole look with grunge eyeliner on top and bottom along with white on the waterline for added drama.
