Official hair and make-up artist at Blender’s Pride Bangalore Fashion Week, Robert Naorem, had models sporting fresh, exciting colours and deep side-parted hair during the Spring/Summer 2014 show. Juggling Indian and contemporary collections with trendy make-up, Naorem elaborates, “Sharp cutting geometrical shapes and neon colours in make-up are the trends for the season. More than smokey eyes, we have also added a tinge of all the colours on the eyes. Hair is more retro with the tied-up or teased look. You will see a lot of colours and a lot of experimental looks during this show.”
Hair was damp and rolled up into a messy bun. The skin wore a soft feminine look, with extended bronzed eye shadow and light pink lips.
Colours were taken from Rwitti Roy’s dazzling bag collection inspired by traditional dancers. Naorem used thick black eye liners and bronzed eyeshadow. Using sky blue eye shadow below the eyes into an extended wings, and blue and orange design on the forehead gave the elegant dressed models a traditional touch.
Jattinn Kochhar’s models sported peacock blue eye shadows with a hint of white dusted around the eyes for the wide-eyed glitter look; the lips were glossy fuchsia pink. The hair was tied up and teamed up with a retro Charleston style wavy fringe wig.
Rehane’s hippie monochromatic resortwear had models walking the ramp with almost nude make-up. Bronze dusted around the eyes and subtle brown blush gave the face a more sculptural, toned look teamed up with a very mild neon orange lip shade. Almost wind-blown look, the hair was teased into messy light curls.

The eyes looked almost untouched, with light brown shadow. The hair was combed to one side and rolled into a messy braid to the tip to get a romantic tussled look, which was complete with a floral wreath.
A sky-blue eyeliner along with black mascara lent a fresh summer look. Teamed up with light pink glossy lips, the make-up was subtle yet sculptured. The hair was tossed into fine, bouncy, messed-up curls.
Sporting a playful look, models had yellow splashed on the eyes and lips. The sides of the eyes were extended with black smokey eyeshadow and the cheeks were bronzed for a more toned, girly look. Parted neatly from the centre, the hair was rough-dried and teased.
