Let’s just say Fashion Week is our happy place. Of course, the collections and the sights of street style leave us overjoyed. But for us, this is the place to be since we’re always on the prowl for interesting beauty looks. Day 2 at LFW W/F 2015 had some jaw-dropping beauty moments—funky liner styles, poppy pouts and supremely stylised hair—and everything was right in front of our eyes, giving us major makeup envy. Want to know what went into these wondrous looks? Read on…
lakme fashion week day 2 look 600x400

We absolutely loved Divya Seth’s collection but you know what won a bigger applause from us? The makeup on the runway! The eyes were stunning, replete with funky strokes, and with the coloured lips, we just never took our eyes off the runway!

How to get Divya Seth’s runway look:

We’re sure you want to try this look out right away. Go for the Lakmé 9to5 Insta Light Instant Glow Crème that lends your skin an instant pick-me-up and makes your face look luminous too. While this will act as the perfect base for your skin, you need some special attention on the eyes. Your magic tool needs to be the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Artist. Start by making a stroke on the upper lash line, move higher to make a thinner stroke just as you would in a cat eye. Lastly, add a tiny stroke on the side, below the corner of your eye in the upwards direction, making it look like a double wing. Add a dose of the Lakmé Eyeconic Mascara to lengthen your lashes and you’re so ready to kill with your eyes. Keep the lips matte and subtle with the Lakmé Absolute Lip Pout in Tangerine Touch.

Sure, Ashdeen had some interesting garments on display but the makeup looks were completely on par with international standards—wet hair, bright pouts and, of course, subtle yet sexy, shiny eyes. No complaints there!

How to get Ashdeen’s runway look:

Sexy makeup has never been done so beautifully. To get this look, after having moisturised, start with the Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse that will blend beautifully into your skin. If you ask us, Ashdeen gave us some serious lip envy, what with their bright bold lips looking powerful on the ramp. For these lips, trust the Lakmé Absolute Lip Pout in Tangerine Touch. Use the crayon style lip colour and in just one stroke, you will get perfect orange Ashdeen lips. For the eyes, opt for the Lakmé Eyeconic in Black for the upper lash as well as the waterline but don’t make it too dark. For that hint of shimmer, use the gold in the Lakmé 9to5 Eye Quartet in Tanjore Rush. Play up those lashes by way of the Lakmé Eyeconic Mascara and you’re ready to make heads turn!

Gaurang’s brides were bold, beautiful and so dramatic, much like the makeup on this show. Call it OTT but what’s an Indian bride without some serious drama around the eyes, right? So there we were loving those Kathakali-esque eyes, sindoor, maroon lips and crimped hair creating magic on the runway.

How to get Gaurang’s runway look:

Itching to try out this beauty look? Here’s what you must do. Start with the Lakmé 9to5 Insta Light Crème that’ll add luminosity to your skin and yet, keep it matte. Get to the smouldering eyes—Use the Lakmé Absolute Precision Liner to make a thick winged eye first and then do the same for the lower lash line but extend the curve below the inners of the eyes, taking it downwards. Once that’s done, outline and fill in further by using the Lakmé Eyeconic in Black over the liner so it’s deep, dark and drool-worthy. Add a hint of grey shimmer on the eyelid by using the Lakmé Absolute Colour Illusion Eyeshadow in Black Pearl. For the lips, rely on the Lakmé Absolute Sculpt Studio Matte Lipstick in Maroon Magic and you are all set to be the cynosure of all eyes.
