International trends left its mark with aplomb before the final curtain fell on India’s premiere fashion show that was held in Mumbai – the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort ’11. Recently concluded LFW had the country’s finest designers showcasing their collection over the past week. Buyers from India and abroad flocked to see what the Indian fashion industry had to offer and as always it stood out.
The designs, drapes, hair and make-up, everything was aesthetically put together making every show stand out.
Here’s a dekko at the finest hair and makeup trends observed at this year’s Lakme Fashion Week.
Designer Sabyasachi showcased his models in a nerdy look with held-high ballerina buns and big geeky glasses. We can only trust a designer like him to make a model put a geeky look and yet shine chic on the runway. For the eyes the make-up was nude with a splash on neutral beige. However, a lot of attention was focused on the lips by coating them with bright red lip colour. The eyelashes were dabbed with oodles of mascara with a thin black kohl layering on the bottom of the eyes.
Designer Priyadarshini Rao went on a neon overload for lips. Models who walked the ramp for her were seen wearing dramatically tangerine lips. Not just the lips, the cheekbones where blushed with peachy orange blusher complementing the orange touch of the lip color. However, the eyes were made up slightly smoky completing the whole Caribbean look.
Bronze was the dominant theme of make-up for designer Anamika Khanna’s models. She rather chose to stay away from the drama make-up; her models wore neutral hues on the face base while only their features were highlighted slightly with generous use of bronzer along with some highlighter. Such form of make-up gave a very earthy and Indian look to the models and at the same time made them stand out against the drama overdose of make-up on the models in the other shows.
Designer Sabya Sharma and Pam Arch London were rather funky with the statement their models made. They used bright fun and colorful make-up which is wearable on a normal day at the same time. The models wore soft, sky blue eye shadows combined with other soft hues like pink and purple merging together going all the way to the outer half of the eyelid. The make-up was practical for daily wear and much easier to be picked to be worn by an average person who has a DIY idea behind make up.
