The grand finale of FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week 2021 was indeed a grand affair. Shot in front of a live audience on a drive-through runway, the final show of the season was nothing like anything we have ever witnessed before. Bodice by Ruchika Sachdeva showcased their beautiful summer collection of flowy silhouettes in bright yet warm pastel shades that would work for most Indian skin tones and body types. These gorgeous outfits were paired with a dewy base, minimal eye makeup and a nude lip.
And guess what? None other than the gorgeous Ananya Panday was roped in to be the showstopper for this show! Sporting a pleated colour-block skirt and a cute yellow crop top, the young actress looked so stunning! She paired her lovely summer day outfit with a statement red pout, and we’re obsessed.

Step 01: Start with prepping your skin with the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer to blur pores and give your skin an even texture. Follow it up with the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation With SPF 45 for that lovely dewy finish like Ananya’s. Apply it with a damp makeup sponge for an airbrushed finish.
Step 02: Since this is a night time look, we recommend adding a thin layer of the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer on your under-eye area, acne, visible spots and blemishes (if any).
Step 03: Lightly contour your face to give it more dimension and follow it up by dusting some of the Lakmé Absolute Highlighter – Moon Lit to the high points of your face such as your cheekbones, forehead, the bridge of your nose, cupid’s bow and chin. Next, apply the darker shade from the Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos - Coral Blush to the apples of your cheeks for a lovely flush of colour.
Step 04: Apply the shimmery golden shade from the Lakmé Absolute Spotlight Eye Shadow Palette – Sundowner to the centre of your eyelid and then blend it inwards. Next, apply the matte brown shade from the Lakmé Absolute Spotlight Eye Shadow Palette - Smokin Glam to the outer eye corner and blend the two shades to create a gradient. Further, sculpt and define your eyes by applying some of the Lakmé Eyeconic Liquid Eyeliner eyeliner and at least two coats of the Lakmé Absolute 3D Lash Volumizer Mascara.
Step 05: Finish this lovely makeup look with a single swipe of the Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Mini lipstick for an opaque colour fill that’ll last all day!
