How to: Sabyasachi’s no make-up look

In an ELLE Exclusive the make-up artist breaks down the designer's Summer/Resort '15 look

By ELLE team  March 18th, 2015

To be a Sabysachi girl for Summer/Resort 2015 you need one thing: great skin. We loved the simplicity of it – the slick hair, the sun kissed skin, the nude lips. (If you follow us on Instagram, you saw it here before everyone else!) While we were backstage at Lakmé Fashion Week we asked make-up expert Natasha Nischol, of Fat Mu, to clue us in on the look:

“We prime the skin using Dermalogica primer. Clean it, moisturise it. Dermalogica tackles any redness, and holds the make-up for a long time.”

“We’ve applied tint moisturisers on girls who have lovely skin. And for others who need concealing we’ve gone with lighter bases.”

“We’re working with shades of brown for the whole face. We’re knocking back the brows, making them slightly softer by using brown over them, because Indian girls tend to have very strong brows.”

“You don’t see the eyes because they all have shades on, so we’re just putting a little mascara.”

“And we’re shading and contouring with a bit of brown, finishing with a highlighter.”

“The lips are nude matte as well.”
