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.

Kohled eyes

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.

Dewy skin

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.
