Trending beauty looks for the wedding season and how to achieve them

If there was ever an excuse to get all dolled up, this is it. It is raining weddings this season! With us Indians having so many ceremonies around it, there are umpteen occasions to flaunt the makeup. Here, we look at what’s trending and how you can achieve them!   

Go glam with bold matte lips

This time around, let your lip shade do the talking! We suggest a deep matte maroon that is a perfect fit for various Indian skin tones.

How to get the look?

To achieve this glamorous look with bold lips, follow the basic rules of concealing, covering your skin evenly, defining and filling your lips and applying mascara and eyeliner for eyes.

Base:

Preliminary preparation of the makeup begins with lightly moisturising the skin and allowing it to sink in. For that clean base, blend a suitable concealer to hide blemishes, acne marks and red spots. Follow that with a lightweight foundation for the rest of your face to appear flawless and glowing. This will even out your complexion and shift focus to your boldly defined lips.

Lips:

Select a lip liner in the same shade of your lipstick. Once you have traced the shape of your lips, apply your bold maroon hue such as a maroon shade. 

Eyes:

Keeping your eye makeup as minimal as possible is also a very important step here. Use an eyeliner with a short stroke to line your eyes. Open them up by applying a few coats of volumising mascara. 

Lastly, the pieces of jewellery and accessories make a huge difference to the makeup you are wearing. Why not try a beautiful eye-catching nath – a kind of designer nose ring this wedding season?

How to get the look:

The makeup is kept simple and up to the mark. 

Base:

Nourish and prepare your face well in advance before you use it as a blank canvas for further makeup. Apply an apt moisturiser. Once your skin feels soft and supple, go for a BB cream to lightly cover the skin and give a beautiful glow. Follow it up with a soft coloured blush with light strokes. 

Eyes:

Keep the eye makeup simple too by using a peachy or earthy hued product with mild shimmers. Finish with kohl, eyeliner and mascara. Remember, the goal is to achieve an eye makeup that will allow the eyes to look all lively and happy.

Lips:

For the lips, use an everyday kind of colour along with the rest of the makeup. Though the makeup seems low key and soft, it is the best combination along with big round bindi on the forehead and heavy gajra on the bun hairstyle.

Extended eyeliner with orange lipstick

Thick bold kohl eyeliner on the upper lash line has been a classic trend since ages. And what better time to flaunt it than this wedding season! To amp up your extended eyeliner look, take inspiration from Kangana as sported here…

How to get the look:

Base:

Begin with a primer, so that skin gets prepared to hold the concealer, foundation and setting powder for long hours. After a few minutes of applying primer on the face, use your everyday concealer to cover up the dark circles and other dark spots. This enables the skin to hold the foundation. Follow this with a full coverage foundation in the shade closest to your natural skin tone. Post which, you can highlight your cheekbones with a soft peach or earthy tone blush. 

Lips:

The bright orange lipstick is a special feature of this entire makeup look and will steal all the attention during the wedding gathering. Apply a non-sticky lip gloss to keep your lips soft.

Eyes:

Draw a thick eyeliner on the eyes, start narrow and follow it with a thick curve. Ensure that both the eyes are aligned. Follow that with coats of mascara. 

Bright pop of colours for the eyeshadow

Orange, bright peach, pink, red; these are the eyeshadows one should try this season. To make it look more ethnic, dab a shimmery gold or bronze shade and blend with the bright colour. 

How to get the look:

Base:

Begin with the routine of moisturising, priming and concealing. 

Eyes:

Choose the best under eye moisturiser. Once it sinks into the skin, dot with an undereye concealer and blend to even out the area around the eyes. Apply a bright pop of pink all over the lid and extend the colour upwards too. Introduce a shimmery gold or bronze shade and blend well with the base hue of the eyelids.

Lips: 

After you have worked on the rest of the makeup, deciding on the lip colour can be confusing for a while. Either go for warm nude shades or go in for matching shade as that of the eye makeup. Soft creamy matte lipstick or glossy shiny lipstick, the choice can be yours based on your ethnic attire and mood.

Blue-winged eyes for the mood of celebrations

The wedding season demands a lot of attention to many things. Running errands for preparations and celebrations can take a toll on your energy levels and leave you no time to prepare in advance.

Quantico actress, Priyanka Chopra shows how easily a dash of blue line allows you to lift your makeup. There is no much involved in this look. The blue eyeliner flick is the only bright colour seen on Pee Cee’s face.

How to get the look:

Base:

Give the skin an overall soft, glowing and supple feeling look. Begin with a pore minimising primer that will help easy application of other makeup products. For an even coverage on the skin, use a BB cream or foundation depending on the need of your skin. Blend well, buff and set with dusting powder.

Eye: 

For the eye makeup, use a cream eyeshadow for a mild glossy shiny look and then do the eyeliner job. First, apply a black liner close to the lash line and then use the electric blue eyeliner without concealing the black liner. Add mascara and finish the eye makeup.

Lips:

Swipe your all-time favourite nude lipstick and top it with a mildly shiny gloss.

Pick a makeup look that resonates the most with you and sport it with elan!
