Re-stock your makeup kit with shades and trends that are hot this season.

Toss out
Passe purple
Purple was the colour of the season at the Autumn/Winter (A/W) runways as seen here at designer Urvashi Kaur’s show. It’s definitely a great hue to wear in the winter so stock it away for next season.

Go buy
Fab in fuschia
Go for a deep shade of pink this season as seen on designer Jil Sandler’s Spring/Summer (S/S) runway and also at James Fereira fashion week show.
Price: Rs 1,500 for Yves Saint Laurent Volupté lipstick in No 10

Toss out
Out with sheen
The blazing summer sun gives a natural tan anyways, so make sure you keep the bronzer away, unless you want to blind the onlookers with an excess gold look. Though a hit at the A/W runways of designers such as Monapali, now is the time to stock it.

Go buy
Natural blush
This summer get a natural flush on your cheeks with the perfect shade of soft pink. The S/S runwayof designers such as Debarun Mukherji reflected the look, so go ahead and wear the pink blush.
Price: Rs 595 for Lakme Face Sheer in Desert Rose

Nails toss out
Stack away greens
The khakis, military greens and blacks were the hot enamel shades last fall. While the moss green shades provided a great alternative to the goth black look, for now it’s time to move beyond the forest hues

Go buy
Gunmetal nails
Move away from usual spring colours, and go for gunmetal nails as seen on the Philip Lim show and flaunted by Sonam Kapoor at the Cannes.
Price: Rs 1,100 for Chanel Le Vernis in Black Pearl

Toss out
Tight curls
Polished curls look great but are a bit passe. A hit at most fashion outings and on celebs this fall, curls should resurface next season now. The summer demands a non-fussy yet experimental style, so go for a softer version instead

Go buy
Wavy hair
Time to get the posh bed head this summer. Say bye-bye to flat hairstyles and ponytails and go for soft layers as seen on Jatin Varma’s S/S runways. Price: Rs 650 for TIGI Rockaholic Groupie Texturising Spray

Toss out
Boring browns
Chocolate browns may be great for a night of clubbing during winters, but this season it’s best to store all your browns and
charcoals and wait for cooler weather to express your sultry style.

Go buy
Canary eyeshadow
Use the colour of the sun to burn away the depths of your eyes for everyone to see the real spunk in you. As seen on Peter Som’s runway, they are a great way to pep up your summer look.
Price: Rs 850 for M.A.C. Chrome Yellow
