The AIFW Autumn-Winter just wrapped up and it was a 5 day sartorial spectacle! Right on the heels of that, we currently have the Lakme India Fashion Week taking place in Mumbai and already, in the first two days, we are seeing some fabulous fashion! But fashion isn’t the only amazing thing we are witnessing. This fashion week season, we are seeing some amazing beauty looks on the runways – from dark lips to fresh faces to braids of all kinds, we love them all and can’t wait to try them ourselves.
Here are some of our favourite beauty moments from the fashion weeks so far. Keep watching this space for more beauty updates from LFW –
#LFW #AIFW Dewy Faces
Dewy faces seems to be a big thing this season with several shows falling back on this look. From Pero’s LFW show where the models had pink lips to Archana Rao’s show to the Huemn show, dewy faces were the order of the day. We also saw an interesting instagram clip of Lakme make-up expert Daniel Bauer, creating an Illuminate theme based look which was a lot about dewy, shiny faced a’la highlighting and shimmery eyes. Check out Grazia’s instagram page for more on that clip.
#LFW #AIFW Braided Beauty
One of the big beauty trends spotted on the runways were braids. From Pero’s pigtails and school girl braids to Anavila’s edgier French Twist braids, to Archana Rao’s braided hairbands over an up-do, this is one we are totally crushing on!
#LFW Gold Rush and Spider Lashes
One of our favourite beauty moments came from Manish Malhotra’s LFW show via the eye make-up. Make-up artist Namrata Soni created a dramatic effect with spidery, fluttery lashed and gold dusted eyelids. Love, love, love!
#LFW Tight Updo’s
We loved the tight updo’s we say at the Woolmark (Akaaro, Rajesh Pratap Singh etc), GenNext (cholabysohaya) and Nachiket Barve shows – perfect hair-do’s for the upcoming gruelling summer and tres chic as well!
#AIFW Bold Dark Lips & Soft Waves At Hemant & Nandita
What we love about this super chilled look is how wearable it is. Right from a regular day at work to a night out on the town, this look is so versatile it can carry you from day to night
#AIFW Coffee & Caramel Tones
Both Pero and Bodice had the models looking fresh faced and natural with nude-esque tones of coffee and caramel. Varun Bahl pepped up the nude lipped look with darker eyes but all in all kept it quite natural. We’ve always been fans of the au natural look and this time is no exception!
# LFW #AIFW Braided Beauty
One of the big beauty trends spotted on the runways were braids. From Pero’s pigtails and school girl braids to Anavila’s edgier French Twist braids, this is one we are totally crushing on!
#AIFW Graphic Eyes
This was a huge trend that we saw emerge. Right from Rajesh Pratap Singh to Reynu Tandon to Anupama Dayal, bold, graphic and colourful eyes were all the rage. Loves!
#AIFW Slicked Back Hair
Dhruv Kapoor and Gaurav Gupta showed us how to slay with slicked back hair. Easy to do and easier to maintain through the day, this look is one we are definitely trying for a night out!
