Illuminate Beauty Look by Lakme Salon at LFW SR’16 | Nikhil Thampi Quantum Collection

 

Hi everyone!

Every season, Lakme Fashion Week brings a fresh theme inspired by the International trends to the runway. This summer, the trend statement is ‘Illuminate’ and I got the opportunity to catch some backstage action before the Nikhil Thampi show on Friday. The designer presented his collection titled “Quantum” at Stage One at LFW and he incorporated the Illuminate theme into the looks with the help of the Lakme Salon experts who created 3 stunning beauty looks. The hair, makeup and nail look for this show was no easy feat. The shimmer laden eyes, crystal lips and high volume hair were nothing less than a work of art and the avant-garde beauty looks complemented the powerful and clean silhouettes of the outfits really well.

Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2014 Grand Finale : Kareena Kapoor for Rajesh Pratap Singh

 

Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2014 concluded yesterday night in a Grand Finale show created by designer Rajesh Pratap Singh. His outfits channeled the theme of this season – illusion and metallics. The showstopper was brand ambassador for Lakme – Kareena Kapoor who was missing last season at the Sabyasachi finale but walked the ramp yesterday night amidst the many mirrors placed strategically on the runway wearing a black gown with reflective rose motifs.

I was really curious to see how the theme was incorporated into the makeup and from these pictures, it looks like a gunmetal smokey cat eye paired with peachy cheeks and lips. I wish we had a close up to get a better look at the makeup (and the nails too!). Considering the high collar of the gown, an updo was a good choice for the hair. I think the makeup works well with the outfit though I’m not particularly loving the outfit itself.

The BIG Runway Trend : Orange Lips!

 

Hey everyone!

I’ve been sorely missing Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2014 (having been backstage for the last 3 seasons) but have found solace in the LFW Facebook Page which has images/videos from all the shows! Just going through the galleries, I was struck by a makeup trend that showed up over and over – orange lips!

If I could sum up this season’s makeup trends in 2 words, it’d be bronzer and tangerine! How I wish I could have been backstage to take close up pics and to see the actual products used but we’ll have to make do with these pics from the ramp (all images from LFW FB).
