So when Lakmé announced its theme ‘Reinvent Nudes’ and gave us an entire collection dedicated to nudes at Lakmé Fashion Week we couldn’t be happier!

When your lips are nude, play up the eyes. Guess that’s the mantra that Agami by Neha Agarwal’s models followed at Lakmé Fashion Week. They wore an intense thumbprint liner (read our story on it here) with brown matte lips. We’re copying this for our next night out. Are you?

If you’re always up for a pale lip, take inspiration from the models at the Aratrik Dev Varman show at Lakmé Fashion Week who wore multi-toned kohl on their eyes—there was orange, white and black on the waterline. And boy did it create an impact or what!

There’s nothing better than deep, dark kohl for Indian skin tones. Opt for a caramel-like shade on the lips but make sure you smoke out the kohl a wee bit for a party ready look we saw at Lakmé Fashion Week.

Want to add some colour to your nude visage and brown lips? Go for ocean-hued eyeshadow as seen on the models at Lakmé Fashion Week. Make sure you blend well so it doesn’t look too overpowering.

Adding glitz to your eyes can be a great idea to play up a boring look. If your lips are taupe, add an intense silver eyeshadow only on the outer corners of your eyes as seen at the Shriya Som show at Lakmé Fashion Week.
