While most of us are ooh-ing and aah-ing over the creations walking down the ramp at Lakme Fashion Week 2011, there is a dedicated team of makeup artists and hairstylists working over time to create ‘the makeup look’ that will blend seamlessly into the designer shows…Here are some trends that caught my eye- hot off the runway!!

  • Sabyasachi’s Nerdy Chic: High Ballerina Buns, with hot red lips and glasses

Trust Sabyasachi to put a girl in glasses, red lips and traditional indian work and still manage to make her look chic. The eyes were kept neutral with a wash of creamy beige. The lashes were exaggerated with lots of fluttering falsies and black kohl at the bottom. The attention was focused on the lips with a pop of bright hot red. This, with  oversized glasses on the eyes resulted in a completely nerdy chic look.

  • Overload of Orange at Priyadarshini Rao

Priyadarshini Rao went on an Orange overload- check out those frosted tangerine lips! If that were’nt enough the peachy orange blusher completed the tangerine touch to this look.The eyes were softly smoked out and the face was sculpted for a very carribean feel to the whole look

  • Bronzer, Highlighter and sculpting and Strong Brows at Anamika Khanna

Anamika Khanna chose to veer completely away from color – the models on her show wore a completely neutral face . The  features were highlighted with judicious use of a bronzer, and along with a highlighter, the faces were sculpted to give a bare faced yet glowing golden girl look. The faces looked earthy, indian and non made up. The strong bow gave an androgenous look to the models

  • Bright but wearable eye colors at Sabbya Sharma & Pam Arch London 

At Sabbya Sharma, & Pam Arch London ,the eyes were kept bright, fun, colorful but wearable . The models walked down the ramp with  soft sky blue eyeshadow starting from the inner corner to halfway down the lid. This was blended into soft pinks or purples till the outer corner. Nice way of wearing color on your eyes without looking overdone!

My take on whats going to be hot this spring:

IMO Spring is going to see a lot of bright lips, continuing from fall winter .I am thinking coral, and fuschia’s on lips – pretty colors to suit all skintones.Coral is a huge color this season and saffron muted eyeshadows are all the rage. In the same color family, shimmery peaches are going to be big for eyes too. Spring is all about color- so wear it in style!
