Catwalk To College: Makeup Beauty Tips For College Girls

Lakmé Fashion Week 2010 is just round the corner and the fashion industry is gearing up for another blast of pure beauty, indulgence and style. Names such as Tamara Moss, Simran Kaur Mundi, Nethra Raghuraman and Alesia Raut adorn the participant list for this event. Let us decode some of the make-up ideas from these models that you can wear too.

Classic make-up

The classic make-up is timeless, fresh and beautiful. This is a versatile look and is frequently seen on the catwalk. It gives an effect of fresh dewy complexion.


(See Beauty Kit for recommendations)
•    To achieve a flawless classic look, apply a light-weight, loose mineral powder foundation or tinted moisturiser. Set it with compact powder.
•    Create a healthy glow on the cheeks by applying powder blush in coral peach or subtle pink. Apply it to the apples of the cheek and to the cheekbones for a more defined look.
•    Powder blush stays longer so avoid cream blushes.
•    Keep the lips neutral. Stick to the shades of pinkish browns or nudes. Lighter shades of pink will also help you attain a natural look.
•    Give your eyes a soft smoky effect, using light browns or very light shades till the brow line. The eyeliner should not have a definite shape, so try to smudge the line close to the lashes. Apply a little mascara to open up the eyes.

No make-up look

The no make-up is a quick and on-the go look. This look has become popular on the catwalk recently. It gives an effect of a luminescent complexion.


•    For this look, apply a liquid foundation and then correct all the flaws with a concealer or a corrector. Berzin Irani* suggests that an under eye concealer is absolutely essential.
•    To set the foundation, dust some face powder or a loose mineral powder.
•    Apply very little powder blush in plum or pink.
•    Highlight the cheekbones to create creating a chiseled look.
•    Keep the lips luminous by applying gloss in shades of pink or plum. Highlight the softness and suppleness of your lips.
•    The eyeliner should have a definite shape and try to use brown or blackish brown shades. Apply eye-shadow in shades of browns or chocolates and end with a little mascara to open up the eyes.

Femme fatale look

The Femme fatale make up look is timeless, beautiful and glamorous. This is a popular vintage look on the catwalk. It is an appropriate party or night time look.


•    To achieve the Femme Fatale look, apply a liquid foundation and then correct all the flaws with a concealer or a corrector. Set the make-up with loose mineral powder.
•    Add definition and subtle highlights to the cheekbones with sculpting powder or a blush in browns or darker shades.
•    Create a ‘vampish’ pout. Stick to the shades of reds and plums to make your lips stand out with bold colours.
•    This look is high on drama, so the eyes should be bold and seductive. Use pastel shades to create a smoky eye. Use dark eyeliner to line near the lashes. Create voluminous eye lashes with two-three coats of mascara. The brows should be well defined as well. Kohl or kajal can be applied to define the eyes well.
