As any fashionista knows keeping your fashion quotient on point is no easy task. With rapidly changing trends in fashion and beauty every woman wants to ride surf the latest wave of trends. When it comes to make up, obviously it is important to know the current looks to coordinate with your Indian Ethnic wear.
So Pure Elegance brings you the coolest new trends in make up looks to make sure you are the leading lady in your story every day, with the right dose of inspiration, from none other than the leading ladies of Bollywood, whose fashion sense is always a game changer.
Bejeweled eyes: Sonam Kapoor Ahuja slays with this trend even in a simple white saree. While the rest of her look is elegant and minimal with a winged eyeliner, filled in brows, neutral lips and a minimal foundation, the real steal is the bejeweled detail. A pearl stick on at the edge of her thick winged eyeliner adds a bright twist to the face and coordinates effortlessly with her white chiffon saree. Applause is in order Sonam - you sure know how to take a calculated risk and doesn't it pay off?
Tip: While this is certainly an eye-catching trend, make sure you use small jeweled accessories to nail the look. Don't go big on the bling so that it doesn't clash with your jewelry. Don this look with an elegant chiffon saree for a night out with bae.
Metallic Mayhem: Now this is a summer perfect look as the warmer season approaches and we heartily approve. Disha's white ensemble gets a cool shine with the light hued metallic eye shadow in refreshing green. This is also perfect for a spring look give that we always love bright fresh colors in the flower season.
A fresh face of make-up and a neutral lip compliment the eye-shadow perfectly. Go for it if you want to shine softly !
Tip: Especially for spring summer, pick lighter metallic hues such as pastel pinks, blues, greens and yellows over heavy or dark metallic shades such deep blue or gun metal as they are more suitable for cooler weather. This will go perfectly with your dressy lehengas or sharara sets too.
I woke up like this: Nora Fatehi is another rising star whose style and beauty rarely fails to mesmerise. While she usually goes for more dramatic looks in her songs and celluloid appearences, we love how she has opted for this clean-faced look for an ad. The clear skin, neutral eyeshadow and nude lip are perfect for a day out, spring or summer and this is a look you could wear everyday with your salwar kameezes and kurti and denim combos.
Gloss over it: Some stars shine and then there are those that glow effortlessly. Alia Bhatt has evolved a good deal both as an artiste an as a fashionista over the years. Just have a look at her beautiful glossy look make up in neutral shades. A neutral lip complements the glowy skin and filled in brows frame her face perfectly. Truly, sometimes less is more.
Tip: You may be tempted to dust on the highlighter generously for this look, but make sure you do not overdo it. Once you have got the major contours of the face done it is enough to give you this dewy skinned look, perfect to pair with your chikan kari suits and sarees be it day or night.
Red my lips: Malaika Arora is one of those beauties who changes her style game like a chameleon, shifting from westerns to ethnics without batting an eyelid. We love her bold matte red lip paired with this vibrant saree ensemble and so will everybody when you flaunt this. Ok, we know this is not a new trend, but you should know that the bold red lip is not going away in a hurry, right?
Tip: As is the usual caveat with the red lip look, keep your pout the center of attention and go easy on the blush and eye shadow. Add a simple small bindi to accentuate the traditional touch if you wear this with a festive saree and you are good to go.
Now the doubt is over, just pair your best Indian Ethnic outfit, be it shararas or anarkalis, with one of these make up looks and rock your day !
