It’s that time of the year again. On the opening night of Lakmé Fashion Week Spring-Summer, 2019 held at the Royal Opera House in Mumbai, glitz and glamour was sprinkled all over the ramp. Ace designer, Gaurav Gupta, known for his draped cocktail gowns and saris, again played with chikankari and flowing silhouettes. But the shimmer in the makeup has set the tone for what’s to come

The runway was icy cool as the models sashayed down the grand ramp with frosted sheer eyeshadow which reflected a silver-based holographic shimmer in the light. Rosario Belmonte, official makeup expert at Lakmé Fashion Week caught up with us backstage to give us a breakdown of the look. He made a statement by extending the frost all the way to the temples, right up to the hairline. Gaurav Gupta wanted to pay homage to the dramatic lineage of the Opera with a modern touch. Rosario believed that the sweeping motion of the extended eyeshadow complemented the silhouettes from the collection beautifully.
Tip: Makeup maestro, Rosario recommends you try this sweeping eyeshadow makeup trick when you’d want to give your eyes and temples a lifted and iridescent look.
The royal opera and bold red lips go hand-in-hand. For a twist, Rosario created a statement bold lip look by using a matte red lip colour and topping it off with the same shimmer used on the eyes. If you love glitter as much as Gaurav Gupta, you can replicate this look by lining your lips with the Kareena Kapoor Khan By Lakmé Absolute Lip Definer in Ruby along with the Lakmé Absolute Matte Ultimate Argan Oil Lipstick in Red Extreme. Then, using a makeup brush dab some shimmer pigment on the lip colour. This is such a disco twist on the glossy lip look.
