Hi everyone πŸ™‚

It’s ALMOST weekend πŸ˜› Somehow, this week I didn’t have the usual mid-week blues! This week I’m in a state of mind where I have so much planned for the blog and I can’t wait to see how things turn out. In a happy go-lucky state of mind to be exact πŸ˜€

And what actually adds onto that the list of fashion weeks happening lately! I always try to dig up and try to find what the latest trends are so that you are updated about the same. πŸ™‚ So Amazon India Couture Week 2015 happened last week so here are a few makeup trends and looks that one needs to be aware about and try out! πŸ˜€

As we all know, MAC Cosmetics is associated with various fashion weeks happening around the world and they were also associated with Amazon India Couture Week 2015 πŸ™‚ The fashion show not just presents extravagant apparel on the ramp but also trending looks of the season.

So here are a few looks and the makeup breakdown that you need to know if you would want to replicate it πŸ˜‰

Mickey Contractor, Director of Makeup Artistry, M.A.C India has been heading the makeup trends for 5 shows – Sabyasachi, Gaurav Gupta, Monisha Jaising, Rohit Bal and Manish Malhotra.

Look One for Sabyasachi ( By Mickey Contractor )

For this look, Mickey Contractor has used deep shades of plum on the lips and added lots of drama for the eyes. Marsala lips are here to stay! πŸ˜‰ Also, don’t forget to notice the smudged kajal! I’ve tried the smudged kajal look myself and loved it a lot.

  1. Start with Fix+, an aqua-spritz of vitamin and minerals, infused with a calm-the-skin blend of green tea, chamomile, cucumber, topped off with the fresh, natural, energizing scent of Sugi. It adds radiance and helps prepare the skin
  2. Next apply the Studio Moisture Cream, a super-rich creamy moisturizer boosted with skin-nourishing extracts including passion fruit, spinach leaf, green tea, algae, wheat germ and coconut. Moistens, feeds, firms and protects the skin and Promotes a healthy radiance.

  11. Fill in the lips with Nightmoth Lip Pencil

Look Two for Gaurav Gupta ( By Mickey Contractor )

gauravgupta11The second look concentrated more on Strobing. For people who don’t know what it means, it is contouring but one which gives a natural sheen to your cheek bones. Strobing focuses exclusively on highlighter, applied where light would naturally hit your face, like your cheekbones, brow bones, the center of your forehead, down your nose, and on your chin. See how beautifully Mickey Contractor has worked with the technique. πŸ™‚ The rest is kept very minimal with nude lips and a little shimmer for the eyes. Love this look! β™₯

The colors sooo perfectly blended and beautiful. πŸ™‚ I so want to re-create this look myself. Sonic has given a very girl-next-door kind of look here that anyone could try for occasions.
