How To: Wear Pristine White

Text by Aparrna Gupta

This season saw a surge of sunset shades, whites, blues and nudes on the ramp. Verve speaks to make-up experts on how to dress your face while you slip into haute runway colours

Pristine White
White-on-white, synonymous with summer elegance, is a classic that continues to be on-trend

If you want to imbibe its pure and calm spirit, keep your face dewy fresh, eyes wide open and lips neutral. “Use make-up that enhances the luminosity of the skin. Don’t forget to add some drama with mascara on the lashes,” states Sarwate who had experimented with an orange eyeliner on the waterline for designer Pallavi Mohan’s collection. But if you are game for some serious fun, white is like a blank canvas. “You can play with the brightest and deepest lip and nail hues when wearing white. A pop of colour can liven up your entire look,” adds Fernandes. To make a strong beauty statement, Nischol suggests letting your eyes go the graphic route with bold red lips. Or opt for a sculpted bronzed complexion with a tangerine mouth.

Beauty Tip
Marsala, the colour of the season, looks great on lips with white. Fill the lips with a lip pencil before you use the lip
colour. For a finishing touch, add a hint of gloss at the centre.
