With the digital age in full swing, not only are international fashion and makeup trends across the world being followed more religiously, but the demand for renowned international brands has increased drastically too. While most of us in Pakistan rely on various online pages to buy the latest make up products, for many (especially those who have visited countries like Thailand, and seen how readily available copies of these brand are) shopping for make up without seeing the product is a big no no!
So when you find out that a reputable local store is stocking all the top brands and products you’ve been trying to get your hands on, a shopping spree is definitely in order. The popular store, Haji Karim Buksh in Liberty Lahore, has recently started retailing international brands and has made life for us make up freaks so much easier!
We round up the top international make up trends, and products, for 2017 that you can now easily follow, thanks to HKB.
1. Glowing skin
Out with the contour palettes and in with the glow kits! You might have noticed how all the top fashion weeks are following this trend because that heavy contoured look is so yesterday, and it’s all about the gleaming glowy skin this season. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit- ‘That Glow’ priced at Rs. 6200, is one of the coveted brand’s top products. It has four metallic powder highlighters, which you can layer, or wear separately, for the perfect radiant glow.
2. Matte Lip Creams
Lip creams have slowly taken over matte lipsticks in the market (and on the ramp!) and while many brands have now released various collections, Colourpop tops the list for its creamy formula and affordable price range. The ‘It’s Vintage – Mini Lip Bundle’ is for Rs. 2900 and gives you the essential shades, from nude to a vampy red, in the perfect size to have you covered for any look throughout the day. We love this one because it’s a 5-in-one pack, but you can find a great array of shades in store.
3. Fluttering Lashes
There was once a time when only brides used fake lashes, but today thick dreamy lashes are what everyone is going for even as a ‘natural’ look. So, what’s the first name that comes to your mind when you think lashes? Huda Beauty of course! This Dubai based brand is most known for their lashes collection, and lucky for you HKB is stocking various designs, starting from Rs. 3250.
4. Deep Eye Shadows
One of the most prevalent looks this season: dark toned eye shadow! Especially with the chilly season still around, berry tones are the way to go. Anastasia Beverly Hills ‘Modern Renaissance Palette’ gives you the perfect range of shades for the perfect well lit up eye makeup, and for Rs 6500 it’s a great investment for the whole year!
5. Winged Out Liner
The winged eyeliner trend just seems to be getting more drastic with time and goes from a thick wing to a dual wing, the more dramatic the better! Kat Von D’s liquid liner pen is the top pick for many professional make up artists, and we personally love it too. Plus at HKB you can find it paired with one of the best mascaras by Two Faced (which always seems to be sold out at Sephora-darn our luck!), to nail that dark sultry look, and just for Rs. 3500 this duo is a steal!
