The year 2020 has been quite the drama queen, don’t you think? With the pandemic, most major events are going digital and Lakmé Fashion Week 2020 Digital First Season Fluid Edition is no different. Last night, we saw ace Bollywood designer Manish Malhotra showcase his beautiful bridal collection, Ruhaaniyat, and it was totally spellbinding!
A fundraising show for the Mijwan Foundation to support local artisans and women empowerment, the opening show for the first-ever digital edition of LFW was overflowing with royal festive outfits, fluid designs and flattering bridal silhouettes.
On the beauty front, the focus was obviously on clean, barely-there base makeup with the eyes being the defining feature. To give you a better idea of everything that unfolded at the mega opening show of LFW 2020, here’s a complete lowdown of everything we saw and loved. Read on…
Keeping in the mind the current situation, the makeup for the show was kept simple yet totally stunning. The base makeup was extremely light, natural and non-cakey, something that wouldn’t budge even under a mask. Perfectly contoured and highlighted cheekbones, lightly flushed cheeks and nude matte lips completed the look.
The eyes were the definite focus for the Manish Malhotra show. We saw heavily kohl-rimmed eyes, with a soft smokey finish that added a lot of depth and drama to the overall look. The brows were kept thick, bold and filled-in to add definition to the face and make the eyes pop. The lightly smudged wing adds the right amount of drama to the eyes, while still keeping things really classy and wearable.

In keeping with the rest of the look, the hairstyle for the show was all about understated glam. We saw mid-parted braided buns with a sleek finish. This made for the perfect canvas for the opulent maang tikaas that were a definite show-stealer.
