From barely- there makeup to a pop of ‘bright on the lips’, the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring Summer 2015 had it all. Playing it safe is not the only make-up option next spring! We get you a roundup of the make-up essentials you need as seen at #WIFW.
Barely-there makeup is always a spring favourite and the runway took to this trend. Most designers preferred their models walking down the ramp with almost no makeup on, keeping things perfect for summer.
Go bare with the makeup but keep in mind that spring is all about colours. Designers Nida Mahmood and Payal Pratap added a bright pop of colours on the lips. Come spring and you will have to reconsider coral and red for the lips. Add a touch of smokiness to your eyes to brave the spring look. You can add a subtle nuance of black like Designer Rajesh Pratap Singh’s lineup of models or go smokey all the way like Rabani and Rakha’s models.
If you’re not a fan of heavy eye make-up then go graphic by adding a lower water line. Apply the colour of your outfit only to you lower eyelid like Designers Wendell Rodricks and Masaba Gupta. The flushed summer skin with minimal lip colour should be your beauty baseline come summer. Designers Shivan and Narresh had their models walk the catwalk with the fresh-out-of-the-water look and designers Hemant and Nandita went for the fresh summer face.
Go traditional and add a bindi to your outfit and red lip colour when you dress ethnic. Designer Chhaya Mehrotra’s line complemented this look perfectly. The best summer accessory is eye-wear. If you need inspiration for the kind of eyewear to go for, turn to line ups by designers Hemant and Nandita, Shivan and Narresh and Saaj by Ankita.
