Another season at Lakme Fashion Week drew to a close yesterday and while there were gorgeous clothes and catwalk drama aplenty, everyone knows that backstage is where all the action is – especially if you’re beauty buffs like us.
There were wine-hued lips at Monisha Jaising:
and a natural brow at 11.11:
There were also goth lips at 11.11 and jewel encrusted ones at Nikhil Thampi; spiky, throw-it-up-and-get-out-the-door buns at Payal Khandwala and gorgeous milkmaid braids at Anita Dongre. Groundbreaking? Maybe not – but sometimes beauty is just as simple as finding some inspiration for your next night out, and there’s plenty of that in the pictures below.
