After the international leg of spring/summer Team Kgsr 2017 shows, the recently concluded Amazon India Fashion Week has officially heralded the new season in India. And even though there’s still time for spring to begin, this week a number of looks that should make it to your summer make-up mood board.
Elton Fernandez, official make-up artist for Maybelline New York, created looks for 10 shows including Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna, Love Generation, and the JJ Valaya finale. For spring/summer 2017, the trend he says is “Bolder, more vivid make-up; vivid colours on the mouth, graphic liners. [This time] it wasn’t so much about neutrals or nudes so much as it was about celebrating potent colour and a strong personality.”
Cases in point, the bold, glitter-heavy pout at Love Generation, the play of colours on the eyes at Sanchita, larger-than-life disco glamour at Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna, and saturated hues at Masaba.
If it wasn’t in-your-face colour, it was the little details that stood out: intense highlights, shimmer eyeshadows that caught the light perfectly, a prominent sunset-inspired palette, natural-but-better complexions. “The focus was on contoured and highlighted faces,” says Fernandez of the looks at AIFW. “Brows were kept more or less natural, as was the blush. Hair was mostly left behind the ears and on the face. Zero hair extensions, no falsies at all.”
