A power lip and strokes of shimmer — Yami Gautam’s head-turning look puts the spotlight on the kaleidoscope of fall colours. Keep up with our beauty manual to recreate this look
Teeming with ideas for the approaching party season, our glamour-inspired photo shoot is a lesson in after-dark style—from emerald and ruby hues to embellished garments. The transition from soft summer shades to dark winter tones is both, tangible and aspirational.
In keeping with this, for the shoot, make-up expert Subhash Vagal’s beauty agenda focussed on two key features: a strong, moody lip complemented by dazzling eyes. To work this winning combo, Vagal coated Yami’s lips with a claret/plum-coloured pigment, which highlighted the bejewelled fuchsia-toned ensemble. With sparkle and shine being one of the biggest trends this season, dazzling lid lacquer was applied on the eyes.To round up the retro-glam mood, her nails were painted in a rich oxblood colour, while her face showed defining coats of mascara, a strong brow and clean, dewy skin. Her jaw-length bob was styled into big curls, which were gently opened out to achieve a wavy-slash-messy finish— a decidedly contemporary take on a vintage look.
