Lakmé Fashion Week got off to a blistering start with a stellar line-up of shows through the day. Starting with the upcoming designers from the hallowed portals of INIFD to the leaf strewn lanes of Kashmir that Rohit Bal took us through it was a visually aesthetic treat.
The official makeup artists for LFW S/R ‘19, Marianna Mukuchyan and Rosario Belmonte outdid themselves and gave us some memorable looks on Day 1. We cast our glance at the best we saw...
INIFD presents Gen Next had distinctive yellow eyeshadow that was made prettier with pearl accents at the centre of the top and bottom lid. Very pretty and pretty do-able, wouldn't you say?
INIFD presents Gen Next also gave us this stunning draping effect of the blush. Draping is when you extend the blush just beyond the cheekbones and around the eye socket. The genius in this look is the subtle yellow highlight that is given just below the under-eye area.
The same show also gave us this gorgeous silver streak eye that is easy to recreate. A sweep of silvery eyeshadow from inner corner to outer corner along the lower lash, extending it just beyond the eye, is all it took to create this futuristic look.
Asa Kazingmei's show gave us a glimpse of what it would look like if men wore smoky eyes, and boy, do we love the result! Men walked the ramp with smoked out eyes and it gave us chills!
Sneha Arora's collection was flirty, flowy and utterly feminine with gossamer fabric and pleated skirts. The makeup for the show was equally whimsical with pink hearts drawn with blush and doll-like separated lashes.
Varun Bahl Pret showcased a very dainty little flower drawn at the end of the eyebrow for a very feminine effect.
Lakmé Salon X Gauri and Nainika presents The Art of Latte was a refreshing take on flowy, fun, flirty garments in polka dot and floral motifs that was complemented by the streak of red through the models' looks. The sweep of red eyeshadow and the hint of red in the hair was a sight to behold!
Rohit Bal ended the first day of the fashion week with a nostalgic collection that was as dreamy as it was breathtaking. The Kashmir Collection presented by Usha Silai honoured the age-old traditions of embroidery of the women of Kashmir. The makeup paid tribute to the opulence and elegance of the craftsmanship with bronzed cheeks and smoky eyes and strong brows. The cherry on top? The red rose that adorned the hair of the models.
