You’ve got your outfit sorted, your jewellery is on point and you’re ready to have the time of your life this wedding season. But what about makeup? It’s the single most essential part of your Indian wedding look so try out these trending looks to shine bright this wedding season.
The mehendi night is all about dance and music and what better than a smokey eye to add some mystery to your look? The Shiseido Essentialist Palette is all you need for a neutral smokey eye with a hint of brown. Accentuate your cheekbones with the Colorbar Highlighter in a rose gold shade for some colour on your cheeks. Amp up the drama with the Lakme Lipstick in Burgundy Passion which you can either dab on for a stained effect or swipe for bold opaque colour.
The most fun event of any wedding is of course the haldi and we’ve got a fun makeup look for you to try! Take the sunshine yellow shade from the Lakme Absolute Spotlight Eyeshadow Palette and swipe it all over your eyelid until you have a bold pop of colour to complement that yellow haldi outfit. Keep the rest of the makeup simple with the MyGlamm Lit Lipstick in a pinky nude shade and the Colorbar Cheek Illusion Blush in a subtle peach colour.
Makeup can be tricky for day weddings so it’s best to keep it natural and neutral for it to look as good in real life as it does in photographs. The MyGlamm Highlighter Eyeshadow Palette has some gorgeous rose gold and shimmery shades that you can pop on to complement both Indian and western outfits. Go heavy with the blush for this look using the Colorbar Cheek Illusion Blush and patting it all over your cheeks as well as the bridge of your nose for a flushed look. Lastly, swipe on the Revlon Super Star Brown Lipstick, a nude that’ll suit practically every skin tone.
The big wedding night is all about glam and glimmer and we’re choosing rose gold as our perfect shade. The Clinique Cheek Pop in Ruby Pop doubles up as a blush and highlighter for a glow that’ll last all night long. Use the pink shades from the MAC Tempting Fate Palette and top it all off with the MAC Mini Lipgloss in a lovely pale pink shade.
Whether you’re wearing a glam saree or a delicate dress, there’s no way you can go wrong with a monochrome makeup look and gold is on top of our lists this season. Use a glowy foundation for your base and turn on the shine with the Clinique Flower Highlighter in Lunar Pop, a subtle shimmery gold shade. Apply the MAC Dazzleshadow all over your lid and in the inner corners of your eyes and finish the look with the MyGlamm Hi Shine Lipgloss in a copper gold shade.
Make sure your selfies turn out as beautiful as the memories you’ll make this wedding season. Don’t be afraid to go for bold pops of colour because what are weddings for if not to glow away!
