The grand finale of the Lakmé Fashion Week could not have been more spectacular than the Shantanu and Nikhil show which showcased military-inspired designs and silhouettes. The models wore pieces from the collection which was titled ‘Recruit’ and had very sharp, tailored fits with metal and leather accents.

Makeup artist Marianna Mukuchyan designed a striking, powerful look with red pigment that was swiped across the eyes, for a fierce look. Hair artist Mitesh Rajani created a sleek, faux Mohawk look with the hair that paired very well with the look.

Here are 3 things we picked up from the hair and makeup looks from the evening.

Draping
 

Draping

For the fierce look, makeup artist Marianna Mukuchyan applied an intense red pigment on the eye lids and used the same pigment on the highest point of the cheek and took it around the eye socket and ended it just above the eyebrow. This method can be applied when you are applying blush. This technique is called draping.

Keep your brow game strong

When the look does not require you to wear eye liner, rely on mascara and good brow products to carry off the look. Keep your brows filled in and brushed out and apply 2-3 coats of a volumising and lengthening mascara.

Use: Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara and Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown

You don’t have to get a haircut to sport a Mohawk
 

You don’t have to get a haircut to sport a Mohawk

Mohawks are a great way to sport a grungy look and you don’t always have to get a haircut to make your hair look like you have a Mohawk. Section your hair in the centre and back comb it to create volume. You can use hair spray or dry shampoo to hold the volume. Slick back the sides to further enhance the look.
