Down to Earth

Traipsing through the ancient streets of Patan, Nepal, model and actress Shristi Shrestha pairs earthy tones, acid brights and attention-grabbing hair to stunning effect.

Against the ancient bricks of Patan Durbar Square, plush apricot-toned lips add a subtle warmth to
lightly bronzed skin. Hair is larger than life: create voluminous waves with a neat centre part, for locks
that are almost fluffy, yet controlled.

This elaborate 'do — a mix of braids, ponytails
and hair twists — is a beautiful mess of texture
and shape. Play up an unusual 'do with muted brights of green and yellow on the lids and
almost-bare lips for a slightly raw finish.

Soft fishtail braids on a neat centre part, add a youthful edge to traditional red lips. Create an undone effect by leaving the ends untied — just add strong hold gel to keep them from unravelling.

Play with negative space on the eyelids with clever black eyeliner. A graphic block in the inner corner is juxtaposed against organic, feathery strokes at the ends, for a cool, blink-and-you'll-miss it effect.

A graphic burst of turquoise blue eyeliner, floating above the eyeline, adds an unexpected twist to an otherwise bare face. Creamy pink lips are the only other dose of colour you need for this look.
