The first-ever ‘phygital’ Lakmé Fashion Week has come to a close, and it certainly lived up to our expectations. The collaboration between Lakmé Fashion Week and the FDCI (Fashion Design Council of India) held a lot of promise for style enthusiasts to put together a joint show. The 5-day style fiesta showcased all the collections in either creative studio productions or visually stunning fashion films; we loved it all. And as is custom, after a fashion week wraps up, we are taking a moment to look back at all the presentations and pick our favourite makeup moments from them.
These glam looks are sure to set a tone for makeup trends for the beautiful summer that lies ahead. Check them out…
- 01. Pastel shadows
- 02. Kohl-rimmed eyes
- 04. Dewy, sheer skin
- 05. Coloured eyebrows
- 06. Peach monochrome
- 07. Romantic pouts
01. Pastel shadows
For the Pankaj and Nidhi ‘KALEIDO’ presentation, models strut down the virtual runway in pop pastel eyeshadows to perfectly match the explosion of colours in the clothes. The powdery mint and bubblegum pink shades caught our fancy the most and are sure to look lovely with all of your pretty summer dresses!
02. Kohl-rimmed eyes
For Ritu Kumar’s Sustainable Fashion Day presentation, the glam brief maintained the vibe of the easy-flowing and soothing silhouettes in the collection. To add a contrasting detail, kohl-rimmed eyes were chosen to up the drama. We love how simple yet chic the look is.

Payal Pratap’s ‘View With a Room’ collection was a vision. To match the geometric precision of the designs on the outfits, graphic eyeliners were created with an inverted flick on the outer corner. We love a smart liner moment, and this one was one of our faves from the season.
04. Dewy, sheer skin
Cocccon label’s visual presentation featured models striking balletic poses to show off the quirky collection. However, our eyes remained glued on how stunning they looked with sheer, natural complexions glowing under the studio lights. Well-prepped skin is in, ladies, and you better start preparing for it!
BB picks: Lakmé Absolute Undercover Gel Primer
05. Coloured eyebrows
Label Khanijo has never shied away from pushing the boundaries of fashion, and that reflected in the runway glam as well. We especially loved the coloured eyebrow moment; it is so cool and casually done, we cannot wait to try it with our everyday basics!
06. Peach monochrome
Suneet Varma’s tulle laden lehenga collection had a great makeup look to be paired with — all-peach everything for the lids, lips and cheeks! The monochrome makeup look gave such a soft finish to the models’ skin, and we want to recreate it ASAP!
BB picks: Lakmé 9 to 5 Pure Rouge Blusher - Peach Affair
07. Romantic pouts
Gauri and Nainika’s fashion film had pretty girls frolicking on the field in floral gowns like one of the heroines from a romance film. The glam matched the whole carefree vibe as well, except a bold red lip that was just the cherry on top!
