Hi 99people! We’re keeping you up to the minute on trends and micro-trends, and that goes fully for make-up too. With the seasons all aflutter and all changing, make-up trends have to keep pace to not only the international flavours in favour, but to the demands of our spunky and moody climate as well. And any girl with her colour palette in place knows how that can mean different things in different parts of the world…it could mean a late winter set of hues in Europe and a tropical panoply of shades in Australia…but here in India it’s a spring bouquet that’s ready to take centre stage.
Find the jewel tone that brings out your eyes, brown eyes are highlighted with leaf green and emerald tones by day, saving turquoise and azure metallic tones for evening wear. When you wear a striking colour on your lids, keep the lips nude or at the most kissed with a touch of rose. Darker eyes can play with almost any shade of eye colour, amethyst, coral, jade…be inventive! Try iridescent lavender eyes and pink lips for a fresh and dewy appeal that blows everyone away. As Rekha Chitnis, leading make-up expert, tells us–: “less is more in make-up, never let product show in obvious and over-the-top ways, instead let the look come together with a hint of colour, never a shout of its existence.”
Keep dark circles at bay with a well-matched concealer, and don’t forget to get your 8 hours at night, this will ensure that you look rested and totally fresh all day…and as every smart girl knows, nothing flatters a face as much as a lovely and natural smile.
Here’s to a season of blossoming loveliness with you at its heart!
Very warmly, Team99
