Powder Bindis And Half-Up Top Knots On Day 3
The brief was clear at Anamika Khanna’s closing show on Day 3 of Amazon India Fashion Week 2016; the look had to be two things – sporty and Indian, in keeping with the aesthetics of the clothing. Ace make-up Artist Ambika Pillai did more than just.
Careless top knots
Hair was styled in a half-up manner with the top carelessly knotted on top of the head; the way one would tie it when they are done with their workout or at the gym. I liked the attention to detail that is obvious in the sleek, shiny finish given to the hair on the crown.
Talcum powder bindis
The totally rad bindis were made with a base of lip balm followed by talcum powder on top. They were set and defined with the aid of a cotton bud.
The eyebrows were thick, dark and well-defined. Clearly, strong brows are here to stay. Eyes got a heavy dose of kajal, especially the lower lids. I like how it has been smudged out. Soft, smoked out lines win over harsh kohl lines any day.
Skin was allowed to shine bright in its natural glory with a lot of tastefully done highlighting, just the kind of post-workout glow we all covet. Lips were painted a pinkish nude to look natural.
