Trend #1 :Futuristic Double Winged Eyes

P&B Calls it The New Age CleoPatra !

Anita Dongre used a gorgeous Royal blue to create an exaggerated double wing for her models. The blue contrasted against the neon clothes, and complemented the nude lips perfectly!

Get the Look: Lakme Absolute Baked Eyeshadow in Night Desire swept over the lids and Lakme Forever Silk Eyeliner in Sapphire to drag out the wing. Lakme Kohl Ultimate used to line the lower lid.


Trend #2: Sci-Fi Hair

P&B Calls it The Sci-Fi Warrior

Hair was doing all sorts of whacko things at LFW !!! It was contorted and twisted in more ways than you could imagine ! From spirally buns  on one side to two Alien like top knots on either side- it was like the hair of 2160!

Overheard a Model saying “This hair is sooo crazy man ! Why dont these designers like us to just keep our hair down and simple. Why does it have to be so alienish all the timeeee”



Trend #3: Kitten Flick Liner, Sheeny Nude Lips, With Polished Contouring on Cheeks

P&B Calls it Fashion Model meets the Queen.

I was in LOVE with the lips at LFW 2013. Matte, Beigey nude or peachy nude with a glossy sheen, coupled with winged eyeliner or smokey eyes ! This particular look at Jatin verma was my absolute favourite! So very ‘High Fashion Model goes to meet the Queen’ – love the skin, the blush everything!

Get the Look: Lakme Absolute Royal Black Eyeliner all over the lid with a subtle flick if you want a glossy look, or Lakme Eyeconic Eyeliner if you want the matte look. The flick should be like a continuation of your lower lash line with just a slight tilt. Lakme Absolute Moonlit Highlighter- used on the apples of the cheeks and Lakme Absolute Bronzer for the hollows used diagonally from ear to lips. Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick #565 would be a good bet for a nude .



Trend #4: Matte Skin

P&B Calls it The Earthy Goddess

As a definite contrast to  skin the previous season, we had matte, shine free skin at Lakme Fashion Week 2013!

Get the Look: Apply Lakme Absolute Mattreal Mousse  with your fingers and blend into the skin. Top up with  Lakme Perfect radiance Powder to ensure your face stays shine free all day long.



Trend #5: French Braids

P&B Calls it Hot Cross Buns ! Because they remind me of Pretzels, or some other yummy bakery item with twists!

Tons and Tons of them. Braids in buns, Braids in Hair styles, Braids just about anywhere !!!

I suck at french braids. The cheek contours look amazing, though!

Yup gorgeous blush and bronzer…Lakme Moonlit Highlighter and Sunkissed Bronzer was definitely two of the most used products!

we were so envious of your mum at schol cosnshe had stylish cut hair and the rest of us were in “guttan” of different kinds tied up in all sorts of ways….well, if you wait long enough, anything becomes fashionable…
