Halo Braids, Navy Blue And Gold Eyeliner Defined Day 5 Of AIFW
You know how they say the best is reserved for the last? Well, that’s what happened on Day 5 of Amazon India Fashion Week 2016. The Autumn Winter edition wrapped up but not without giving us some stellar looks in the hair and make-up department.
I haven’t met a single person who doesn’t look good in face-framing braids. Models at Sulakshana Monga and Joy Mitra‘s show wore intricately woven French braids that were fanned out later to create a Halo effect around their face. The result was extremely soft, delicate, and romantic!
Never underestimate the power of a bold lip! That’s precisely what models wore at Gauri & Nainika‘s show. Bright tangerine lips were offset by super glossy hair that was tightly slicked back into a ponytail. I loved the flicked navy blue eyeliner as well!

Navy and gold Eyeliner
To say that the grand finale was anything but that would be a lie. As far as hair and make-up go, we got to see three distinctly beautiful looks. Models walked for Rajesh Pratap Singh wearing navy blue eyeliner on the upper lids and a navy dot in the centre of their lower lashline. It reminded me of the electric blue cat eyeliner makeup artist Pat McGrath had done for Anna Sui’s AW’12 show.
Another striking feature of the show was the indigo patches of paint models wore along their part much like the Maxime Simoens Spring 2015 show in which hairstylist Laurent Philippon used water-based body paints on hair. Models wore similar hair but in shades of orange and pink while walking for Pankaj & Nidhi. I really loved the sleek top knots model wore while walking for Abraham & Thakore but the salient feature was the gold dust on the top knots. Also seen (and loved), the gold eyeshadow in the inner corners of the lower lashline!
