Nykaa posted on 04 January

We’ve shortlisted five of the hottest makeup trends this year to replicate. Whether you’d like to stay in your comfort zone with nude neutrals, or experiment with fashion-forward bolder trends, we’ve decoded the best of the lot, straight off the red carpet!

Scandalously Scarlet

Who: Lily Collins
What: Golden Globes
How: Recreate celebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles all-time favourite red carpet look {till date, at least} in under ten minutes. Start with a primer for a smoothened sheen, move on to foundation for a velvety- matte base.  Perk up those doe eyes with a mix of NELF USA HD Custom Pro Palette Eye Shadow – Blush Frost and NELF USA HD Custom Pro Palette Eye Shadow – Gossip Next, those gorgeous arches deserve to be played up and complete the pros look with a swipe of bright red to complete the loud full-lipped mouth.

Magical Metallic

Who: Emily Ratajkowski
What: Vanity Fair Oscar After Party 2017
How: Flaunt Emily Ratajkowski, the runway queen’s gilded aquatic eye makeup this New Year with ease. As always apply foundation to begin with and conceal unwanted blemishes. At the heart of her look are her iridescent mermaid-esque smoky eyes that are so expertly blended and shaded, you’d swear they were airbrushed on. Create your own glam glitter-lined smoky version with a quad-palette while tracing the upper and lower lids in green pencil. Amp up your peepers with oodles of mascara and finish off with a peachy crème nude lip color.

Outrageously Orange

Who: Karlie Kloss
What: Oscars 2017
How: Karlie Kloss seems to be taking the conventional route when it comes to her choice of makeup on the red carpet. This year’s Oscars weren’t any different when she rocked statement bold brows coupled with a soft brown smoky eye and orange lips. Opt for a brow kit so that you have ready-made templates to work with. Next, highlight for a sun-kissed effect, add a touch of soft blush and dab on the orange for a quintessential girl-next-door pout.

Monochromatic Maroon

Who: Priyanka Chopra
What: Emmy Awards 2017
How: The ’20s and ’30s Art Deco vibe was inspo for PeeCee’s look in plum-like tones. MUA Pati Dubroff termed it makeup magic as she created a sultry look with an air of mystery. Let’s get started. For glowing-from-within skin apply an illuminating foundation and translucent setting powder to gently define the face. Draw focus to the eyes with a concoction of deep red and maroon eyeshadows. Complete the look with a dark pencil to subtly define lips and top off with a magic wand—err, lipstick in broody berry.

Gorgeously Green

Who: Deepika Padukone
What: Cannes Film Festival 2017
How: The secret to Deepika’s effervescent beauty – her smile, of course! But to recreate her red-carpet moment, prep with an ultra-hydrating moisturizer and dewy foundation that perfectly matches the colour and texture of your skin for a flawless finish. Then, go all out with mystic emerald green eye shadow and blend it out for elongated wings sans any harsh edges. Apply some powder blush for a vibrant flush and long-lasting liquid lipstick in pale pink to balance it out. Add instant drama with mascara and you’re all set to steal the limelight!
