What’s the ideal wedding guest makeup? There are no correct answers. But Sanya’s look from a wedding she attended recently provides ample inspiration. Sharing on Instagram and flaunting her lit-from-within, sun-kissed skin, her makeup look is one for the books. Sanya shows just how flattering rust orange can be when worn on your eyes as it can easily look as natural or bold as you want it to be. The Dangal actress sported an all-rust look. But the soft feline flicks and sculpted cheekbones elevated it to extraordinary status.
The Shaadi-perfect makeup look is guaranteed to get you lots of attention. Want to try it too? Here’s a step-by-step.
A natural glow begins with the right moisturiser. Use a primer-moisturiser face base to help keep skin hydrated while ensuring staying power of what follows. We recommend using two different kinds of foundations so you only shine in the right places. Apply velvet matte foundation on the center of the face, around folds of the mouth, where your nose meets your cheek, and a touch to the center of the forehead. Then, apply a glowy foundation to the rest of the face using a separate tool. Set the makeup on your forehead, around the chin and nose using a translucent powder to keep it from creasing.
Fill in any gaps in the brows with your eyebrow pencil and feather them out with a spoolie. If you’re blessed with fuller eyebrows, you can just use a brow gel to set it in place.
Smear an eyeshadow primer across your eyelids to ensure your makeup stays put all night long. Take an orangish-brown shade on a crease brush to define the sockets and also along the lower lash line. Then, with a flat shader brush, apply a lighter peach-brown eyeshadow all over the lids. Grab a kohl eyeliner pencil and apply winged eyeliner. Finally, apply a coat of mascara on the top and bottom lashes or choose a voluminous pair of falsies.
Use a cream bronzer along your jawline, hairline and cheekbones for a more chiselled look. Make sure you blend it well.
Apply a cream highlighter on cheeks and high points of the face, using your fingers to pat and press the product. Then, apply a rosy cream blush on the apple of your cheeks, blend it upwards towards the temple.
Use a creamy matte lipstick in a peachy-pink hue to complete this eye-catching beauty look. Finally, you can make your makeup last longer by spritzing on a makeup setting spray.
Try this makeup look to shimmer, shine, and sparkle wherever you go!
