#AIFWAW17: From Dramatic Eyes To Gender Fluidity, Here Are All The Beauty Looks From Day 1
In terms of beauty, Day 1 of the Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2017 has given us a whole load of dramatic eye looks, so we’re counting down some that really left an impact. While a clean face and minimal makeup look is always in, let’s take inspiration from these playful looks, so we can have some fun with our own makeup too.
1. Gender Fluidity
It was great to see Abraham and Thakore make their signature androgynous clothes and clean cuts for both men and women. We loved watching them break gender norms with matching makeup looks for both men and women, because who cares about the rules anyway?
Both men and women rocked the classic, Indian look — kohl-rimmed eyes and a bindi.
2. Graphic Accents
Clean skin juxtaposed with baby blue and pastel green accents on the models’ faces were what we witnessed at The Handloom School show, yesterday. The show was made up of 13 participating designers that represented their own design abilities made in pure, Indian handloom.
Eka, Antar Agni, Good Earth, Pero, Rohit Bal, Nicobar, Urvashi Kaur, Raw Mango, 11:11, Suket Dhir, Niru Kumar, and Rajesh Pratap Singh participated in this show. Accents randomly appeared on one eye, one eyebrow, brow bones, and more, turning makeup into an art tool that goes beyond conventional beauty.
3. Watercolour Eyeshadow
VOGUE India asked a bunch of designers to design their own version of the saree and the results were stunning.
The makeup varied for each look, but strong eyeshadow looks tied the theme together. Blues, purples, greys, and browns were blended across the lids of each model.
Individual lash falsies and lots of mascara made for gorgeous, natural-looking, fluttery lashes.
Shows like Krishna Mehta and Madhu Jain featured these looks.
And, of course, no day is complete without some good ‘ol liner!
Shruti Sancheti and Rina Dhaka’s shows had models in beautiful, winged eyeliner looks that were striking and yet totally doable at home.
