Complementing Nishka’s lady-like collection was a summery makeup look with a hint of colour. To get it, begin by moisturising your face with the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Crème. Follow this by applying the Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse for a natural finish. For a flush of colour on the cheeks, swirl a fluffy brush in the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Coral Shimmer Brick, dab it on the apples of your cheeks and blend it towards your temples. Dip the fan brush into the Lakmé Absolute Moon-Lit Highlighter and dust it over your nose bridge, cupid’s bow and forehead.

To get started on the eyes, begin by filling in your brows with the Lakmé Eyebrow Pencil. Then, dip a narrow application brush in the same highlighter and dust it across your eye lids and inner corners to give it a hi-shine finish. For the statement-making colour pop, brush the Lakmé Eyeconic Royal Blue Curling Mascara over your upper lashes. It will be the sapphire tint you need, as seen on the Lakmé Fashion Week runway!

For the creamy coral pout, look no further than the Lakmé Absolute Lip Pout Crème in Peach Please. Apply it over your lips for the finishing touch.

The timeless makeup look at Tarun’s spectacular Lakmé Fashion Week showcase was one that you can’t go wrong with.

To try this at home, start by applying the Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Serum over your face to hydrate and polish your skin. Next, apply the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Skin Cover Foundation and blend it in thoroughly for a high coverage, flawless finish. Then dip a fluffy angled brush into the darker shade of the Lakmé Absolute Sun-Kissed Bronzer and apply it in the hollows of your cheeks, across your temples and under your jawline.

For your eyes, define your eyebrows and fill them in with the Lakmé Eyebrow Pencil. Use the felt tip of the Lakmé Absolute Precision Liquid Liner to draw a thick stroke of eyeliner across your upper lash line. At the end, extend the eyeliner towards the eyebrow and join it back to the line. Fill in this triangle to create a dramatic winged eye makeup look.

For the pink-toned pout, choose the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color in Lush Rose.

Kotwara’s Lakmé Fashion Week collection of exquisite ethnic wear was complemented to perfection with a sparkling makeup look. To get it, start by prepping your skin with the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Crème. It will lend your skin a natural sheen. Next, apply the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Foundation for maximum coverage. At the uppermost point of your cheekbones, dab a mixture of the shades of the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Coral Shimmer Brick and blend it downwards into the hollows of your cheeks. Use the lightest shade of the same shimmer brick as a highlighter over your nose bridge, cupid’s bow and chin to add a natural glow.

For the eyes, apply the light brown shade of the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Gold Eye Shadow Palette in the outer corner and crease. Then dab the gold shade from the palette in the centre of the lid for that added sparkle as well as under the brow bone and in the inner corners. Blend the edges of both shades together. Brush your brows in one direction and fill them in with the Lakmé Eyebrow Pencil.

Finish off the look with a muted rust-toned lip by applying the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color in Smooth Merlot.
