In spring earthy, baked cool colours such as pale violet, thistle, orchids, olive, bottle green and cool blues are matching the clothing line of the season. Also, pastel shades like pink, lime greens, et cetera are also on the top.

The most popular day look for the season is silky-smooth matte skin with soft touch of bronze and pink lips. For an evening, one can go for smokey look using bottle green, cool blue hues or a coloured winged liner
What make-up colours compliment the Indian skin tone?
Make-up colours vary region to region, however, we have warm skin tone and earthy shades with a hint of orange compliment the Indian skin tone.
For eye make-up dark cool colours like burgundy, midnight blue and purple look good. If one wants to pick among warm colour palette then, gold, brown, burnt orange are the options. Choose dark pink tints, shades of orange and plum as lip colours. Use apricot and earthy pink as blusher to highlight cheeks.

It was during the launch of our Color Play Collection and I used blue, green lip colours with the same shade of eyeliner and eyelashes.
