A look which will go perfectly with a statement blouse. Get that dewy finish by using the highlighter and do up your eyes in a vibrant shade like a teal blue . Give your lips a nude shade.

Floral prints
This season, designers like Rajdeep Ranawat, Payal Singhal and Nachiket Barve showcased their collection where intricate floral panels along with large floral motifs created glamour.

The latest beauty trend on the runway was a new interpretation of the colored graphic liner, which goes well with floral motifs. Use some bold eyeshadow colours and keep your face matte with sheer blush on the cheeks.  

Chic looking ruffles were designer favorites. From dupattas to skirts to sleeves, ruffles added glamour to all the attires. Designs showcased by Kaveri, Gauri and Nainika and Divyarajvir among others were seen using ruffles.

Go for a thin eyeliner and mascara. The stained lip in a pop color will add some vibrance while keeping the overall look fresh and minimal. A coral lip would go best with it.

Quirky draping; waist candy

Quirky sari draping is another new trend to look out for. Jayanti Reddy added a silver embellished waist candy to pink brocade sari with pleats pinned under the belt while Punit Balana paired a black embroidered belt with a grey sari and the drape secured around the neck; Padmaja had a saree drape with a knot in it.

Go all quirky with an exaggerated wing and a strong brow to complement this fashion style. Smoke out the wing further to make it bolder. You could also stand out and complement the bold brows by contouring your face with shimmer. Choose a nude lip colour to complement the eyes.
