Classic red lips with a sparkle edge, dramatic eyes, dewy apples of the cheek and an effortlessly stylish top knot. All this and more, as inspiration was abound when we shot the creations of the biggest names in fashion, with beauty looks to match each style. We made sure that the hair and makeup was the perfect accomplice to the mood of the outfit, and of course, was something that could be replicated at home without investing much in the tools and techniques.
So, here’s all the inspo you need as you visit your BFF’s cocktail soirée or even if you are the bride — add some confidence to the chosen look.
Peaches n’ cream
If in doubt, go for beauty that is minimal. We love how peach lips add glow to the face, with the cheeks highlighted with a blushing-bride pink and eyes done with a thin stroke of mascara.
Top notch, Top knot
An instant facelift with a focus on highlighting your beautiful neck and shoulders — the top knot works wonders with your ethnicwear. And of course, your jewelled studs will also be on a beautiful display.
Slick, sexy hair

Gelled back hair is a contemporary take on the fierce, no-nonsense look. The wet, slick mane goes beautifully with bold eyes and statement scarlet lip to light up your celebrations.

Move over smokey eyes, it’s all about bringing in some shadowed drama with a tinge of brown hue. Top with a pair of faux lashes with mascara lustre and you’d be good to go.
