Backstage at the Lakmé Fashion Week W/F 2018 we caught up with ace makeup artist Florian Hurel on all things makeup and the biggest beauty trends of the season.
Excerpts of that conversation below...

BB: What’s your beauty philosophy ?
FH: I would say, all the women not here but all over the  world are beautiful. It’s just about enhancing and working with the right products to make them look even more beautiful.
BB: The theme of this season is Shades Of A Diva. How do you see that translate in the makeup trends of the season?
FH: I think it’s all very colourful and very powerful. It’s quite inspiring and I really feel it works well with the Indian skin.
BB: Kareena Kapoor Khan just launched her Signature Lakmé Absolute Collection, thoughts?
FH: I think she’s excellent. She’s a great Influencer & a diva herself. So I really think that it will work well. In fact I have used some of the products from the range on the runway. The products are really rich, really nice and just awesome with the pigments. I love it.


BB: Which is your favourite product from the Kareena Kapoor Khan Signature Lakmé Absolute Collection?
FH: I really like the contouring stick. I think they are easy, easy to blend and also the highlighters are really good.
BB: What according to you will be the biggest beauty trend this season?
FH: Nowadays I am into pastel and I’m seeing a lot of pastel and nude makeup. Apart from that there are heavily done dramatic eyes. I have created some of those looks myself.
