The ramp at our debut show at India Couture Week this year was popping with colours. Our muse this season for our collection, Epic Love, was a gypsy princess. Keeping the free-spirited, bohemian yet strong personality of our muse in mind, show stylist Gautam Kalra and Sonic Sarwate, global senior artist, MAC India, designed a look that was popping with colours. Braided hair completed the look.Here’s how to get it right.
1. Start with Fix+, an aqua-spritz of vitamin and minerals, infused with a calm-the-skin blend of green tea, chamomile, cucumber, topped off with the fresh, natural, energizing scent of Sugi. It will add radiance and help ready your skin to get the warpaint on.
2. Next, apply the Studio Moisture Cream, a super-rich moisturizer perfect to moisten and firms the skin.
3. Correct and conceal using the Pro Conceal and Correct Palette.
4. Use Studio Fix Fluid Foundation, an oil-controlling formula that promises a natural matte finish with medium to full coverage.
5. Now use the Select Sheer Pressed Powder, a lightweight pressed powder with a silky, natural matte finish and a soft-focus effect.
6. Define your jawline with Shadestar Sculpting Powder.
7. Now comes the fun part. For the pop of pink on your cheeks, use the Azalea Blush and Pink Swoon Blush to create a gradation of pink hues. For orange – Use Devil Blush and Modern Mandarin Blush to create a gradation of orange hues. Use light strokes of your hand to seamlessly blend the shades.
8. Ready your eyes with the Hush Cream Colour Base and set it with invisible powder.
9. Apply Swiss Chocolate Eye Shadow on the crease.
For pink – Apply Process Magenta Chromographic Pencil on the lower lashline. Set the pencil with Azalea Blush.
For Orange – Apply Basic Red Chromographic Pencil. Top it with Devil Blush and Modern Mandarin.
10. For dreamy eyes and added drama, use lash no. 7.
11. With the eyes and cheeks doing all the talking, keep the lips subtle by first lining with BoldlyBare lip pencil. Fill in with Peachstock Lipstick.
