Top 10 showstopper makeup trends from FDCI X Lakme Fashion Week 2022

Lakme Fashion Week is one of fashion enthusiasts' most sought-after runway events. It’s a festival of beauty, colours, makeup and everything fashion. It defines the fashion trends for the year and sets new standards for designers and makeup artists. This year’s theme was ‘Queens of India’ an ode to the beautiful and fiery queens like  Rani Laxmibai, Rani Padmavati, Rani Indira Devi (the mother of Gayatri Devi), Maharani Jind Kaur, and many more. It was a festival of our heritage with rich colours and the spirit of modern-day fashion.

Lakme Fashion Week is one event I like to revisit over and over again to get inspired. Like every year, this year too, Lakme Fashion Week was a grand celebration of the fashion and the makeup industry. Here are my top picks from makeup trends set in this year’s Lakme Fashion Week.

The showstopper eye makeup trends

  1. Aqua barbie

Aqua colours stole the show in this year’s fashion week. They were scattered everywhere from teal, green and blue shades for eye makeup to pastels, navy blues shades of makeup stealing the show.

  1. Purple beauty

Ananya Pandey was a pure delight with Falguni Shane Peacock’s outfit along with makeup that perfectly complemented the outfit. Her purple metallic eye shadow paired with a purple winged liner look is something that was an absolute beauty.

  1. Pop of colours

Another astonishing makeup look that is perfect to try during summers was the orange and blue makeup done with metallic blue inner corners paired with a flashy orange liner. This look was one of the boldest and most beautiful looks from this year’s fashion week.

  1. The graphic white liner

This white liner was another show stopper from this year’s fashion week. The winged white graphic liner with an angular finish towards the crease looked so ethereal that it was difficult to take one’s eyes off.

  1. Pearly eye makeup

This pearly eye makeup with minimal or no eyeliner or kohl was a testament to the elegance exuded in this year’s fashion week. This look is going to be a bridal favourite this year, without a doubt.

Hairstyles that stole the show

  1. Floral Hair accessories

Beyond beauty, with inclusive and sustainable themes, this year’s Lakme Fashion Week was special in more than one way. The floral hair accessories with simple and modern hairstyles were a testament to the era of sustainable makeup.

  1. Box braids

Did you think that box braids only looked good in the gyms and on athletes - think again? Box braids definitely stole the show this year. This power-packed sporty look combined with winged eyeliner and a mauve lipstick made a million hearts stop.

  1. Golden strands

Another pleasant surprise from the Lakme Fashion Week was the golden strands hairstyle. This chic look paired with nude makeup had super cool vibes and is perfect for a party and the beach.

Makeup trends that we loved

  1. Glass complexion

The Glass complexion makeup is a hot favourite and one of the most popular makeup trends of 2022, and this year’s  Lakme Fashion Week just confirmed that. The Glass complexion makeup with a layer of liquid highlighter and a mid coverage foundation is perfect if you love minimalistic makeup.

  1. Monochrome look

The monochrome look was one of my favourites this year. It is the perfect makeup look when the star of the show has to be your outfit. With a  peachy lip shade and tint for eyes and cheek with minimal eyeshadow and liner, this look is easy to create and confirms that in some cases less is truly more.
