#AIFWSS17 Day 1 Beauty Report

By  | 

Amazon Indian Fashion Week SS17 was off to quite the stylish start in the capital yesterday. From #HauteFavourite trends to some kickass street style, looks like all eyes will be on the AIFW SS17 runways for the next few days. Right before AIFW SS17 kicked off, Maybelline India’s brand ambassador and celeb makeup artist, Elton J Fernandez, gave us an overview of what to expect from the runways this week. And now, for our fave beauty trends from day 1. Here are the biggest, most eye-catching trends we saw on the runway.

1. Graphic Liner (Yup, This Never Gets Old)

Whether it’s the undone winged liner for Krishna Mehta’s show or the fierce creation for the Ashish N Soni runway, celeb makeup artists like Ambika Pillai went all out with the graphic liner trend. Why doesn’t this get old, you ask? Well, the makeup geniuses just never run out of innovations when it comes to this trend — look at the ‘LO & VE’ written on the models’ eyelids during the Love Generation show. It’s not just the trend-makers — makeup lovers like you or me can have fun with this trend at home too!

2. The Shimmer Explosion

When I say shimmer explosion, I mean an explosion on exact, precise points on the face. The lids and the high points of the cheekbone. A makeup artist knows that glitter done right is when it accentuates your features. It looks like shimmer shadow and highlighters are here to stay.



3. Faux Fringes & Buns, Buns, Buns

Man buns and faux fringes were stand-out looks on the runway yesterday. Anavila and Love Generation featured some unique hairstyles during their shows. Check out Disha Patani’s man bun!

The Samant Chauhan show featured models with double buns.


4. Bold Brows

Last season may have been about the bleached brows or no brow look, but the bushy brows are back this season and aren’t we glad! Make use of all the eyebrow products you’ve invested in and flaunt killer brows this year and next!


5. Dots & Lines

Dots and lines made up a large part of the trends we spotted at fashion week last evening. We’ve entered an era where makeup and hair is used to express individuality — there is no such thing as conventionally beautiful anymore. Be it the freckles on the faces of the Anvil models or the crisp lines we saw on the Rajesh Pratap Singh runway, being unique is never going out of fashion.
