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).

MAC Spring Summer 2013 Trends (Event Photos)

 

Hey everyone!

I attended the MAC Spring-Summer 2013 Trends presentation back in February this year wherein the 4 Key trends of the season were showcased. Present on the occasion were Mickey Contractor (Director of Makeup Artistry, M.A.C India) and Sonic Sarwate (M.A.C Senior Artist) who demonstrated each of the looks.

This season, the trends are very soft and sophisticated – almost poetic in their description. Polished clean skin, blended edges, a pop of color or pastel hybrid or just gleaming tanned skin – each look has its own beauty and appeal. The 4 looks are as follows – Sig-nature, Nu-ance, Sci-chedelic, Puri-tan.

Top 5 Makeup Trends from Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2013!

 

 

Trend #1 : Bronzed, highlighted glowing skin

 

Nothing feels more like summer than a healthy tan and a bronzed glow on the skin! Highlighted, glowing skin with a generous dose of bronzer was the key face makeup trend during Lakme Fashion Week. The Lakme Absolute Moon lit highlighter is perfect for this look – it has a bronzer on one and a highlighter on the other.

Trend #2 : Soft beige, pink eye shadows

 

Soft beige, pink and sable shades with a hint of pearl shimmer were used extensively. A wash of eye shadow with loads of mascara and your eyes are summer-ready in a jiffy! Can be paired with a bright orange or fuchsia as well as natural pink gloss.

The Lakme Desert Rose eye shadow quad has the perfect shades for this look. It was used backstage for most of the nude eye makeup looks.
