So here are some makeup tips from a makeup pro herself.
Go toss your bold look with your eye makeup and explore as many colors as you can. One color that is going to be sparkling out this season is the color BLUE. Try out different looks for all functions such as Smokey, glittery and matt eyes. Add a little drama to your face by using eyelashes to complete the look. As the drama people enjoy these days are your LASHES.
Make sure that you are using a good foundation and it is well blended. If you are going for a party that is going to last for a whole day, use a very light weight foundation or mousse but make sure that the makeup doesn’t look cakey. Remember, to pull off the flawless look “Less is more” and your skin is going to look spot on if you are going to blend it well. BLENDING is the key, ladies. Glow for it, gorgeous! Contour and strobe your pretty features using a good highlighter and contour.
What kind of outfit should a bridesmaid choose?
First thing that a bridesmaid should look forward to while choosing the right outfit is to be comfortable. Lehenga sets, sharara suits and crop top sets are the popular choices for Indian wedding bridesmaid dresses. According to her, a bridesmaid should wear something modern yet elegant and classy. They can choose different types of silhouettes with classy cuts. The off shoulder trend, is still now a popular street
style, that has made its way to the bridal world also. Cropped skirt with a crop tops one of my favorites for a Mehendi function. Digital prints in geometric, abstract and floral embroideries and patterns are the latest trends.
Some Bling Advice for Bridesmaids
Invest in a Mathapatti or a Nath. Try out different types of Nath’s considering their different sizes and patterns for your look. If you are going for heavy Mathapatti or Nath, go subtle with your neckpiece. Playing around with different chokers can also be considered. One stop shop for all the kind of jewelry is RAABTA Jewels by Rahul Luthra. They have really unique and trendy styles. Raabta Jewels is also one of the leading stores in Delhi. This is definitely my favorite store.
Advice on footwear
Running around for small errands in comfortable shoes for a bridesmaid can be such a relief. Wedge heels make things perfect in terms of exaggerating the height and giving comfort. If you are still a pencil girl, walk in those heels many times before you actually wear it on the final day.
