With the much-awaited, Big Fat Indian wedding season around the corner, every woman out there is gearing up to look her very best at the occasions. Apart from the crucial elements like clothes, shoes, jewellery etc. there’s yet another extremely important aspect for wedding looks that needs to be on point – your make-up! Now, even though makeup is highly versatile and you can make your own permutations and combinations to get your customized perfect makeup look, you need to play around the season’s coolest beauty trends if you want your make-up to be on fleek. These trends are making an appearance straight off the runways, and if you follow any of these happening beauty tricks, then you are sure to stand out in the wedding crowd!
The Dark Diva
We all are well aware of how “the winter is here!” (Refer: GOT) and the same goes for the lips this season. Go for bold and dark colours and witness how everyone swoons over your statement lips. You can definitely opt for vivid purples, intense wines, rich burgundies, bold berries, dark reds or head-turning oxbloods. Don’t shy away from sporting a dark purple pout with your mint green lehenga or an oxblood pout with a royal blue & gold attire. You can even accentuate the look by trying out the ombre trend on the lips, and coupled with lightly smokey eyes, your makeup is going to be a total win-win.
A Glowing Goddess
This year, it’s all about the #glow, both on and off the runway and if you are a keen follower of Instagram trends, then you must know how highlighters are the ‘it’ beauty pick right now. So this wedding season, ditch the bronzers and choose to put on some extra dose of shine (quite literally), as you highlight your flattering facial features, like cheekbones or the T-zone. A cocktail night look with the right amount of highlighter on the cheeks and paired with a muted matte lips and winged eyes, is a perfect way to make sure you dazzle and shine!
All Dewy and Natural
With a cooler way to describe it as the “no-makeup makeup” look; this one is all about going the fresh and breezy way for all those daytime wedding functions. Choose a dewy foundation instead of a heavy matte, and make sure to ditch the kohl for a silver or white eye pencil. Get some shimmer blush on the apple of your cheeks and pair it with peaches or light pinks for the lips. This look complements any day-time outfit, such as a pastel-hued anarkali suit or an off-white & matte gold saree. Keep it minimal, add on some dainty jewellery pieces and see the wonders a light and dewy au-naturel makeup look can do!
Jewel Hues & Tones
This season, it’s all about incorporating the bling – not just through your clothes or accessories, but also through your makeup skills. It’s time to incorporate all those rich sapphires, intense emeralds and shimmery golds in your make-up and stun the spectators with your exotic glam girl look. Go for shimmery jewel eye shadows or metallic eyeliners and take it a notch up with sparkling bronzers. Pair your bling eyes with a rich ruby or fuchsia pout and a soft contouring. You can also go for a classic neutral Smokey eye and pair them up with intense metallic lip colors such as golds or coppers to be the style diva at any occasion!
Smokey with a Twist
We couldn’t complete this article without incorporating the ever-favourite smokey eye look, but this one is a twist on the classic by moving over the black and opting for other colours. Go for bright and metallic colours on the lids matching to your outfit and smoke them up with darker jewel tones or greys. Give a generous coat of mascara on the lashes and with a nude shade on the lips, you are all set to rock the show! Don this stunning smokey eye look with an embellished saree & trendy blouse, and look drop-dead gorgeous at your best friend’s reception party.
So, this wedding season, try out new looks, break free from your inhibitions, experiment away and get ready to slay it in style! Embrace the coolest beauty trends of 2017 and flaunt them effortlessly in order to grab eyeballs wherever you go!
