Latest Indian Makeup & Beauty Trends

1. Bold Brows

Bold brows are the It-trend right now! It can be paired with no-makeup makeup, dewy skin, smokey eyes and winged eyeliner. So go bold with your brows to update your look and be totally in trend this season. And keep your brows on the natural side, don’t overpluck or draw too dramatically. And don’t forget to brush them and fill in the gaps!

2. Dewy Makeup

Everybody’s wish is to have a lovely and glowing skin. Dewy skin has made its way back into the beauty game this season. And this is a beauty trend makes you look gorgeous and versatile for all occasions. Spring makeup is all about looking natural and giving the right amount of shine to your skin. On models and celebs, we saw dewy skin paired with bright lipsticks and bold brows for a classy bright look. Great idea for the bride’s makeup. But if you want to go for a subtle look, then try dewy skin with nude lipsticks.

3. Goth Lips

Goth lipstick shades are back with a bang in fall makeup looks. And when it comes to lipsticks, the bolder we feel, the darker color we try. To step out with confidence, red has always been a bold go-to color. But if you feel it’s time to go darker and bolder, try goth lip colors like dark burgundy, black and deep purple.

4. Smokey Eyes


Smokey eyes are timelessly sexy! And the secret that makes this Indian eye makeup popular is that smokey eyes change the makeup look dramatically. You can try different makeup styles with the smokey eye, like winged or an under eye smokey look. They also look great with bridal makeup. You can also try double color smokey eye look with two different colors for a chic look!

5. Winged Eyeliner

Winged eyeliner can never go out of style. It gives an alluring and sultry look to the eyes, if it’s perfectly done! Go glam with bold winged liner paired with a bright or nude makeup look. Wear it to parties, wedding receptions dinner dates!

6. Neutral Eyeshadow

Neutral shades don’t always have to be boring. Instead, the best way to wear them is when you don’t feel like wearing bright eye makeup. And it’s very easy to recreate. These shades make your eyes pop and look bigger. You can pair the natural eyeshadow with red lips, winged eyeliner, dewy makeup and contouring for an amazing look. For a more subtle look, try this trend with nude makeup and lips, which will work for the office and for work parties.

7. Shades of Red Lipstick

Who’s in for a bold and breathtaking color? Red lipsticks are always great but are super hot this season. I personally love this trend. And we saw different shades of red on celebrities this year. Red colors like cherry red, blood red and wine red were trending on the website of Lakme and runways of India Couture Week. Pair it with whites, blacks and lots of bright outfits. Great option for a night out, party or anniversary.

8. Two-Tone Lipstick

I’m so excited to try this. Wearing two lipstick shades together may seem too experimental but it’s surprisingly wearable. If done right, it gives a bold and pop-up look rather than cartoonish. Wearing two shades of lipsticks simultaneously requires creativity and some confidence to pull off! Great idea to give your lips a transformation by blending two complementary colors to achieve this look! Well, looks great on Indian skin tones, too!

9. Nude Lipstick


Nude lipsticks are a must have for every girl and are timeless in fashion. They work for office days, and can even look great when they’re paired with those sultry and sexy eyes loaded with mascara and eyeshadow. Great option for office parties or a casual day out. In fact, you can also wear nudes with the Indian bridal makeup look for a classier, toned-down version.
