Dressing up shall have never seemed easier and more comfortable.

Let’s see how we can spice up some of the popular Spring 2020 makeup trends with a bit of sparkle:

  1. Semi-Pop eye shadow

Coloured eyeshadows have made it to the list of top makeup trends this spring, however, with a twist. Instead of applying in a subtle manner, time to go a little more pop. You can go crazy with the colours if its matching with your attire.

2. The Gorgeous Smoky-Cat-Eye

The cat-eyes may be a thing of the ‘60s, but they do not seem to be going out of fashion anytime soon. For minimal effect, you can use a thin felt-tip eyeliner which slicks slightly outwards while appearing thin from the top. Conversely, if you wish to go bold and beautiful, you can always opt for an extra-long wing. Although not an easy technique to master, the cat-eye is subtle, yet becomes an absolute head-turner with the right accessories.

Donning a cat-eye, you do not want to take the attention away from your gorgeous eyes. This means no heavy jewellery. I am a big fan of drop earrings from the C. Krishniah Chetty Collection, so I have chosen a minimal and sleek diamond dangler.

3. Bold Stains and Glossy Lips

Next, match the shine of the lips with the sparkle of diamonds. A pendant with stone matching shade of your lip color shall do wonders in accentuating your otherwise semi-subtle look – to give off an elegant vibe.

Krishniah Chetty Collection immediately caught my eye and I could imagine myself delivering my next speech (in-person or on video call) with a white, crisp shirt, light-pink lips and this gorgeous pendant to steal all the glory.
