Being the beauty highlight of the day, Nikhil Thampi’s first makeup look made us sit up and take notice. If you want to experiment with this look, start with the Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Whitening Serum for a natural, dewy base.

Taking the peach shade from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eyeshadow Gold Palette, apply it over the middle of your upper eyelid. Then pat the purple shade from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eyeshadow Silver Palette in a winged shape over your upper lid and make it join your lower lashline. Finally apply the silver shade from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eyeshadow Silver Palette on the inner corners. Blend the edges of each shade together so that it creates a seamless look. Give your eyes the finishing touch by going over your lashes with the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara.

For the glossy ombre pout, start by applying the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Addict in Red Delight all over your lips. Then in the outer corners of your lips, pat the black shade from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eyeshadow Silver Palette. Between the red lipstick and black shadow, pat a small quantity of the purple shade from the same palette lightly into your lips and blend them slightly to create a gradation effect on the lips.

Special mention - Standout sparkle at Amit Aggarwal

As we round up the beauty looks that caught our eye, we cannot fail to mention the sparkling look at Amit Aggarwal, which might have stolen the show. Keeping the face as a blank canvas, the eye makeup consisted of a shimmering eye shadow which was offset by chunky glitter over the inner and outer corners of the eye. With a look as glitzy as this, we can’t wait to shine bright this season!
