New Delhi, Sep 4: In today’s world, people are not only conscious about how they look but also how their skin feels and lipsticks are an important factor in making or breaking your image. This makeup tool is not just about different shades or textures but also about ingredients, application and choosing the right trends, say experts.

Sargam Dhawan, Director of cosmetic and personal care brand Paul Penders India, doles out tips on some lipstick trends that are making waves this season.

* The herbal route: Using vegan and organic lipstick not only protects the lips from harsh chemicals but also preserves the natural texture and colour of the lips. Applying lipsticks with less chemicals reduces chances of lip discolouration.

* Shift from matte to creamy: Creamy matte or satin finish provide a soft and smooth look while leaving the right amount of colour and shine. Creamy Matte texture is also known to stay on the lips for longer hours and avoids the lipstick to get flaky on the lips.

* Ditch the nudes: Get over with the nudes already. A pale pink, a peachy coral or a vibrant fuchsia would be the perfect pick for the Indian skin this festive season. Applying natural pink lipsticks is perfect for the desk to dine look.

* The blend of orange: As we know, red never goes out of style. However, this season it’s raining orange. A subtle blend of orange in your red can get you the perfect glamorous look for the season.

Annanya Sabarwal, Country Head of cosmetic and personal care brand KIKO Milano India shares some finest trends to wear your pout in 2017.

* Top glitter coat: A glitter top coat adds a gorgeous shimmering sheen, be it over a lipstick or applied straight to bare lips. Applying a subtle hint of glitter over your lips can make your lips pop just how you want them to. Apply your favourite lip colour and then a little amount of transparent gloss. Then add the glitter — this way, it will be fixed in all your lip.

* The unconventional bold shades: Unconventional bold shades like blue, purple and grey can be a game changer for parties if worn with confidence. Rocking a bold hue draws attention to your lips and makes you stand out..

* Nude mattes: Everyone is well acquainted with nude shades, natural matte lipsticks are perfect for day wear and also go with smokey eyes for evening wear. Use natural matte shades, a tone lighter or darker to give the perfect definition to your lips.

* Lip gradation: The latest lip trend of 2017 surely includes the gradation of the lips. A little more pop of colour in the middle of your lips making their way out lighter towards the edges.

HAIRSTYLE MAKEUP

New Delhi, June 7: In the age of selfies, it’s important to get your hair and make up in place to get the best frame. So make sure you are opting for the perfect trend to keep the like button buzzing on social media.

Arpit Jain, MD and Founder, Auraine Botanicals and Vibhoar, CEO, NEU Blush list down ways for seemingly perfect and classy hair and make up everyday.

* Select hairstyles that are flattering to you: The hairstyle you opt for, should complement your face cut and the outfit that you are wearing. Avoid extreme hairstyles; you don’t want a hairdo bigger than your head. Try not to completely pull your hair back from your face, as this could make you look older.

* Eliminate flyaways: Ladies obsessed with picture perfect hair understand the necessity of moisturizing the hair to avoid flyaways. When our hair lacks moisture, it tends to look and feel dry, brittle and unhealthy. Spending time outside in the sun can majorly influence the moisture (or lack of) in your hair. Thus, use of hair serums, masks and sun protection is a must to maintain your hair’s health and protect it from damage.

* Go a little messy: Messy hair never goes out of style. So, just when you think you’ve styled your hair, toss your coif around to loosen things up in a right amount and you are all set to rock the camera.

* Select hair colour that enhances your hair: If you are planning to get those natural hair coloured, try the latest colours which go well with the Indian skin tone like honey brown, wine, caramel, chocolate brown in a balayage with highlights instead of going for global or simple highlighting. You must choose a hair colour that matches with your skin tone and don’t just go for any random hair colour.

* Don’t shy away from volumizing products: A regular and a great haircut is the foundation of any great hairstyle for fine hair-one that provides with volume in appearance. Other than this, a bit of strategic teasing along with volumizing products will work wonderfully on the camera.

* For the perfect make up

* Sunscreen is a must: No matter what, you should apply sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays. Apply sunscreen before you apply foundation or primer. Titanium based or Zinc oxide based sunscreens are considered to be best for the sensitive skin type. Summer make up kit must have a spray sunscreen or a gel-based sunscreen with minimum SPF 30.

* Kind of make up products: Use only long-wearing, smudge-proof, waterproof cosmetic that stays for long and gives a perfect finish to your makeup. Use face powder to set makeup and reduce the excess shine on your face. Foundation with a matte finish works as a miracle.

* Avoid the catchy look: Everyone loves a nice glow that shimmer gives us, but there is a big difference between a healthy radiance and an over-the-top shine. Do not use any cosmetics with a shimmery, shiny or glowing finish it can make you look bad in the photographs. A concealer and a nude lip colour is all you need this summer.

* Maximise the impact of those eyes: Curled lashes and mascara are musts as both open up your eyes, and the eyes are the focal point of a picture. Use clear light to medium colour eye shadow for highlighting. The more open they are, the more the light hits them and that’s what makes them twinkle.

* Play with the sharp features: Don’t forget to apply a dash of bronzer to nose, forehead, cheekbones and chin to get that perfect Brazilian look. Powered bronzers are light to use and do not turn streaky like cream bronzers in summer.

* The lip-factor: Wear bright lipstick as darker shades can have a minimizing effect on the lips; steer clear of a dark matte lip colour. It can look aging and unflattering. Sticking with brighter colours can help you look younger.

* And the final look: Brighten your smile ahead of time with a teeth whitener. Smile with your eyes and your mouth.

* Ivory: The colour Ivory is regarded as a rich, royal hue due to the subtle sophistication it emotes. It is also an apt bridal colour for the brides who would like to experiment more with their make-up and jewellery. An ivory lehenga with subtle golden thread work can look alluring with a ruby or an emerald jadau polki jewellery set. A dupatta can be a traditional maroon for a more traditional function or even a translucent organza dupatta in a dusty gold shade can look extremely chic for a sangeet/mehendi function.

* Silver grey: A silver-grey lehenga with badla work or mirror work is for the more experimental brides who believe in breaking the archaic norms. Use beautiful and intricate grey benarasi brocades with silver thread work for bridal lehenga skirts. A peach brocade dupatta with silver grey lehenga with pearl and gold traditional jewellery can be the right mix of novelty and tradition. The silver grey trend has been seen burning the ramp internationally as well. I believe the Indian brides will certainly accept this trend for the coming season.
