Day 3 of the Lakmé Fashion Week was a study in the art of dressing with smouldering looks sighted both on and off the runways. Going by the makeup trends seen, it seems to be a year for offbeat choices in makeup. Gone are the days when your eyeliner has to be black or brown and your inner corner highlight Had to be a golden or silver shimmer. Make way for blue eyeliners and red inner corner highlights.
It was a day which saw the experimental challenge the established with designers showcasing collections that redefined what fashion has to look like. Here are the top makeup trends we celebrated on Day 3 of Lakmé Fashion Week S/R ‘19.
Essé, which opened the day’s proceedings saw the hottest makeup trend of moment, glassy skin, take centre stage. The sheen on the garments was reflected on the skin and in the sleek hair.
Integument featured models wearing very bronzy makeup, with coppery brown eyeshadow and blush. There was lots of highlighter on the high points of the cheek which tied the whole look together.
Did you think that the highlight on the inner corner of the eye had to be a shimmery metallic colour? The show by SWGT had models wearing a matte red eyeshadow on the inner corner of the eye. And we are sold.
Double up the colour with two different eyeshadows on your eyes. The show by Sayantan Sarkar and Tahweave had the models sporting aqua blue glittery liner on the upper eye lid and red shadow on the lower lash line. The placement of the blush, too, was different. It was applied just below the under eye area and was quite pigmented for a dramatic overall effect.
Kanika Goyal's runway look was high on highlighter. Highlighter was used on all the high points of the face for an other-worldly glow.
Take a leaf out of Rajdeep Ranawat’s and SVA by Sonam and Paras Modi’s style file and wear thick blue eye liner and print with peachy pink lips and clean, dew-drop skin.
Gazal Mishra and Parvaty Dasari's shows had the models wear a very clean base with a sweep of red underneath the eyebrows for a very dramatic look
Caste No Bar and Sukriti And Akriti's runways had the models wearing a very Earthy-toned look. They had an almost Cleopatra-like look with thick black liner that was fish-tailed towards the outer corner of the eye.
Payal Singhal's models wore a smoked out eye which was extended beyond the outer corner and had golden accents, which perfectly complemented the boho hair they sported.
