10 New Things We Learned at FASH WEEK!

Clas­sic beauty moves got a makeover on run­ways ev­ery­where. Here are our easy-to-cop favourites...

Cosmopolitan (India) - - BEAUTY - By Me­her Ba­jwa

1 The New Smokey Eye

In­stead of go­ing all out goth, the mod­els at the Dozakh show had a smokey ef­fect on the outer cor­ners of their eyes, while the lids were lay­ered with gold shadow.

1. Prep your lids with a primer to cre­ate a smooth base for the eye­shadow. Now trace your up­per and lower lash­line with a black pen­cil and smudge with a Q- tip.

2. Fill your en­tire lid with bronze or gold shadow pay­ing ex­tra at­ten­tion to the in­ner eye. High­light with an eye pen­cil to re­ally open up your eyes.

3. Care­fully ap­ply a black/brown colour to the cor­ner in the shape of a flick and del­i­cately smudge. Fin­ish off with a gen­er­ous dose of mas­cara.

2 The New Nail

For a clean and clas­sic look, the folks at Tibi time-trav­elled to the ’90s and brought back white dig­its and faded ter­a­cotta tips. How el­e­gant (and to­tally of­fice ap­pro­pri­ate).

1. Buff your nails be­fore ap­ply­ing a pol­ish; this gives the prod­uct some­thing to stick to.

2. Al­ways ap­ply a base coat for a chip- free, lon­glast­ing manicure.

3. Once it dries, ap­ply two coats of the pol­ish and fin­ish off with a top coat; this cre­ates a dou­ble pro­tec­tion layer for the lac­quer.

3 The New Skin

Gor­geous, glow­ing-from-within skin was big for many shows this sea­son—just skip on the mul­ti­ple make-up steps and stick to the ba­sics as shown be­low.

1. Give your skin a breather and opt for a shim­mer­ing lo­tion or il­lu­mi­na­tor to re­place the primer + con­cealer + foun­da­tion for­mula. This combo gives skin a dewy look.

2. Use a high­lighter to con­tour your cheek bones (move out­wards from nose to cheek) and jaw line.

3. Add colour via a light rosy blush, skip the lip­pie and ap­ply a gloss. Full lashes al­ways get bonus points— so use a lash thick­en­ing mas­cara.

4 The New Bouf­fant

Give the clas­sic Au­drey bee­hive a hot high-rise up­date (like at Carolina Her­rera) with a sleek front and a tow­er­ing bouf­fant at the back by adding tonnes of root lifts.

1. Ap­ply a vo­lu­miz­ing mousse to your locks and back­comb your hair at the roots. Now gen­tly comb the front sec­tion back over the vo­lu­mised locks be­fore spray­ing into place.

2. Next, place the hair­band on your head and en­sure it’s placed firmly. Start teas­ing and back­comb­ing the hair at the back of your head.

3. Use a strong- hold spray to keep the hair in place for longer.

5 The New Metal­lic

All-over molten metal can run the risk of look­ing tacky. Stay ahead of the fash­ion pack by ton­ing it down a notch and play­ing with hints of shine.

1. Per­fect­ing a dewy base is key. It helps high­light the pop of colour on the eyes. 2. Stick to a thin liner and ka­jal end­ing in an ex­tended line.

3. Pick sub­tle shades of eye­shadow that will en­hance your eyes like sparkly peach, icy pink, or dull gold.

6 The New Lip

Sure a red lip is a clas­sic, but the re-in­ven­tion lies in how you wear it!

1. A long- last­ing lip­pie is more about the base than the ac­tual colour you’re us­ing. Prep skin with a yel­low- based con­cealer and foun­da­tion to nix any red­ness.

2. En­sure there is no dry­ness by ap­ply­ing a lip con­di­tioner be­fore you layer on the lip­stick. Ap­ply the lip­stick with a sharp brush in­stead of straight from the bul­let for su­per pre­cise ap­pli­ca­tion.

3. Let the lips be the hero of the look and only use a light eye­liner to com­plete your make- up.

7 The New Twist

Valentino’s mod­ern take on this retroin­spired ro­man­tic hair­style was el­e­gant and supris­ingly easy to recre­ate!

1. Ap­ply a sleek­ing cream to give your hair strong hold. Di­vide your hair in half with a strong cen­tre part till the top of your head. 2. Now twist each side back on ei­ther side of your head and se­cure into a chignon style bun at the nape of your neck.

3. Smooth the hair un­der the knot us­ing a fine tooth comb and se­cure the twists us­ing bobby pins.
