When it comes to planning your bridal makeup there are so many ideas and suggestions from your friends, makeup artist and Pinterest, of course, that can seriously confuse you! Well you don’t need to stress, we bring you some perfect makeup inspiration for ALL of your functions. These makeup looks for different wedding functions will help you shine like the stunning bride you dream of being without being too OTT.
1. The Engagement: Blushing Beauty
Eyes: A rosy ombre on your lids makes for a super pretty and girly look. Blend rose-pink and gold eyeshadow with a dash of orange in the middle for this feminine look or you can simply use different shades of pink. It is so versatile that it works for the day as well as night.
Lips: Pair this with light pink lips.
Face: Go easy on the blush and instead use a bronzer for a warm glow that will balance the pink of the look.
Trust us, he’ll be more than happy to put a ring on it!
Eyes: Being a day function, your mehendi makeup should be subtle compared to the other days. A simple taupe shadow gives a super polished look and helps open up your peepers. You can add a dash of fun by using colourful liner or eyeshadow along your under eye. Match it to your outfit and let your eyes grab attention.
Lips: This is the time you can go crazy with your lip colour. Hot pinks and zesty corals make great choices to go with the playful theme of the function.
Face: Add a bit of luminizer to your moisturizer to give you a beautiful glow that looks like it’s coming from within. Don’t forget to blend some blush along the apples of your cheeks for that pretty, rose flush.
With flowers in your hair nothing can stop you from looking and feeling like a princess!
3. The Sangeet: The Showstopper
Eyes: If you’re dying to try the smokey eye, this is the perfect night for it. The sangeet or cocktail is the night you can experiment with going bold as you let your hair down and dance the night away. If you think black and grey is a bit much, you can opt for a striking, midnight blue smokey eye which will go with almost any outfit. Add a touch of silver if you want some shimmer.
Lips: Let your eyes be the centre of attention. Go neutral on your lips with a nude shade or simply use some clear gloss to plump your pout.
Face: Go for a super sculpted look. Ask your makeup artist to contour your face to perfection so you suddenly have chiseled cheekbones and flawless skin.
Get ready to look like a million bucks during your awesome sangeet performance.
Eyes: You just cannot go wrong with gold eye shadow. The colour compliments our Indian skin tone and is apt for your wedding day. Pair it with a gorgeous winged eyeliner for the right amount of drama for the most important day of your life.
Lips: A soft pink pout will add to the romantic vibe of your look.
Face: One word – highlighter! Don’t hold back on this magical makeup product to help give you that beautiful wedding day glow.
Nothing can stop you from being the most stunning bride ever. Mr Groom won’t be able to take his eyes off you!
Eyes: Stick to the gold theme for your reception because it really does do wonders for your eyes. If you like you can add a smokey effect by smudging the eyeliner and adding a bit of black shadow around the outer corners. Of course, finish off with plenty of mascara for ultra-lush lashes.
Lips: Switch the pink for a classic red to add to your diva-esque style.
Face: Practice strobing – use your highlighter where the light will hit your face, namely along your brow bone, your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, the centre of your forehead, your chin and along your cheekbones. Get ready to glow, glow, GLOW!
You’ll look absolutely resplendent for your fairytale day. Congratulations, gorgeous!
