The first-ever digital edition of Lakmé Fashion Week 2020 gave us two very distinct, yet striking presentations. Designer duo Saakhsa & Kinni showcased a bold, experimental and fun collection loaded with print-on-print styles and flowy silhouettes. While Rimzim Dadu kept true to her signature style and presented a fresh, festive and clean collection that left us asking for more. What further added to the beauty to these designers showcases were the incredibly striking eye makeup looks — a trend we spotted all throughout the season. Here are our favourite picks from the finale…
1. Metallic wings
Intense metallic eyes added to the boldness of the distinctive sarees and lehengas presented by Rimzim Dadu. The models were done up in silver and blue metallic eyeshadows (regardless of their garment) hinting at the versatility of this colour combination. This striking look was created using the Lakmé Absolute Spotlight Eyeshadow - Smokin Glam, which we declare a party season essential!
2. Water-colour lids
For Saaksha & Kinni’s abstract printed collection, the colour of the outfits was complemented by water-colour lids done up in a casual, yet artistic manner. This eye look was perfect for amping up the playfulness of the collection. Plus, it is so fun to do; you can recreate this with the Lakmé Absolute Spotlight Eyeshadow Palette - Berry Martini.
3. Showstopper smokey eye
The totally stunning Mrunal Thakur turned showstopper for the finale shows and stunned in both. While her Saaksha and Kinni look was created to match the mustard and green in her ensemble, it is this Rimzim Dadu smokey eye look that stole the show. You can recreate Mrunal’s showstopper eye look with the Lakmé Absolute Eyeshadow Palette - Stilettos.
4. Colour-blocked eyes
Colour-blocked eyes with intensely pigmented shades did complete justice for the Saaksha & Kinni fashion film. The collection, which featured Bandhani, mirror work and Banjara stone prints, was presented with an air of quiet elegance. The bold, eye makeup looked so stunning against the comparatively sombre backdrop. The Lakmé Absolute Spotlight Eyeshadow Palette - Sundowner is a great pick to create this stunning bold eye look.
