"SPRING adds new beauty and new life to all that is"
Fashion is a strong language in itself and for people who understand Fashion, it is the most creative form of expression and the best way to communicate. I have always loved everything to do with fashion and over the years I have realised that though unknowingly, but it has become a strong medium for me to express myself. Be it my thoughts, my mood, my opinions, I find it easier to communicate through my choices and statements in Fashion. Also, the kind of work profile that I am in, I get numerous opportunities to experiment with my fashion choices and curate some fresh looks all the time. And I cannot be more grateful for being blessed in this way.
The Spring and Summer seasons get me particularly excited. Though dressing up and layering looks in winters has its own charms. But being a true summer person, I am all in love with summer fabrics and summer colour palettes. And spring is undoubtedly the season for new beginnings. Every year, at all the International and National fashion and beauty platforms, new trends and styles for the season are set, with the onset of Spring. There are Spring Summer collections that lay the fashion trends for the season. There are forecasts around the hair and makeup styles and colours that would trend hot in the days to come. Taking a cue from these forecasts, all the designers and makeup artists around the globe embrace these trends and create their own versions of the same.
Pop of bright colors in the makeup has been a trend for some time now. People have not been shying away from putting oranges, lilacs, magentas yellows and hints of neons in their makeup looks these days. If done creatively and in moderation, these colours do add a lot of vibrancy to the look and come across as a breath of fresh air. This year, the trend seems to have gone farther. I, along with my creative team worked upon curating some fun, yet very wearable Spring Summer hair and makeup looks. We used some bright colors but in moderation, keeping up with my personal style which is very minimalistic.
1. Green eyes with Blush Pink lips
This has to be one of my most favourite hair and makeup look for the Spring season. We kept the base really clean and even, not trying to make me look unnaturally fair or radiant. Summers call in for some matt finish to your overall makeup look and the same should be well taken care of while doing the base. We added a very soothing shade of green eyeshadow to the eye. Though we could have blended in more complementing shades of green or blue to the eyes, but we refrained from doing so. Just added a dash of mauve colour beneath the lower lid to make the look a little dramatic. ‘Spring’ means life, beauty, freshness and beauty in its most natural state is the most appealing. Hence, we did not overdo the whole make up look. Though, we used false eyelashes for the look, but I would suggest adding some mascara to your natural lashes, to keep it looking more natural and fresher.
Highlighter is all one needs to add loads of glamour to the look. Since, we wanted to keep it light and spring fresh, we restricted the use of highlighter to an exceedingly small quantity. The blush was also kept in a noticeably light pink shade just to make the cheeks look naturally flushing. And finally, the pop of a beautiful, feminine pink colour on the lips. All you need in summers is a nice shade of pink lip colour and all your make up woes are gone. It is the best way to add that natural glow to any face and light up the whole look instantly.
For the hair again, did a soft blow dry, took a few hair strands on one side and tied them in a braid. We used some orchids in the hair to give it a more playful feel. Adding flowers to the hair is the most assured way to make your look pretty and feminine. Just be a little more creative in your styling so that the whole look really stands out. A low messy bun with a few flowers would have also looked really dreamy with this make up. And goes without saying, this look is best when carried in the daytime. And make sure your outfit and accessories are in perfect resonance with the hair and makeup and rather complementing and enhancing each other.
"SPRING - A lovely reminder of how beautiful change can truly be."
2. Bottle Green eyes wit Rose Petals for the company
For this look, we did not change the eye makeup, rather just intensified the green eye shadow a bit, just to make it look slightly more prominent. The focus was more on the other aspect of the look and that was the petals of red rose. With the help of face glue, we carefully pasted these petals on one side of the face in a pre-designed manner. Though a little dramatic, if flowers can be creatively used on the face, they add a different sort of vibe to the whole look. This was definitely, like taking the Spring them for hair and makeup to another level. The hair were just kept easy and open to not make everything look too efforted. For this petal’s look, you can also keep your eyes nude and bright with loads of mascara and a red lip shade similar to the colour of the petals. It is also sure to look equally beautiful and enchanting.
