Easy Wedding Guest Makeup Looks

The wedding season is here and most of us have multiple invites for the month of December! In case you are short on time and are wondering how to quickly do your makeup for all of these weddings then here are a few looks as well as tips and tricks that you can try!

Pink lips with subtle shimmery eyes are perfect for the daytime. Instead of using a darker shade in the crease, you can even go for a simple shimmery eyeshadow all over the lids with a lengthening mascara to add a wispy feel to your lashes. A green shimmery eyeshadow like the one in the picture will look great for the Mehendi function and you can switch it up with a gold/yellow eyeshadow for the Haldi function. You can skip on heavy contouring and can simply add a subtle blush and highlighter for that healthy glow!

For the night, slightly darker eyeshadows and dark red or fuchsia lips work the best with most Indian outfits. Just make sure that your lipstick and outfit do not clash with the colours that the bride is wearing, after all, all eyes should be on her! You can go for a winged liner if you are comfortable with that or can create a smokey eyeshadow look (these are easier with a deep brown shade instead of a black eyeshadow and look more guest-appropriate too!). You can go slightly heavier on the highlighter and can add a touch of bronzer for a more glam look, but remember, if your eye makeup is very heavy you can go for a subtler shade on the lips or vice-versa. Balance is key!

Be it day or night, a setting spray is a must to keep your makeup intact throughout the ceremonies. It is also wise to carry your lipstick with you so that you can gorge on the food without worrying about messing it up. Don’t experiment if you do not have enough time to get ready and stick to what you feel comfortable in 🙂

Hopefully, these tips will help you with your wedding guest looks for this season. If you have some interesting makeup hacks that work for you then do let me know in the comments below!

Maha Saptami Makeup Look | Blue and Purple Eyeshadow

Subho Maha Saptami! I am too sick to write a lot today but basically, in India, we are celebrating the festival of Durga Puja at the moment and today is the 7th day or Maha Saptami. Each day of Durga Puja is associated with a different color and the color for Maha Saptami is Blue. So I decided to do a bright blue eye makeup today. I have used an electric blue on my lids and lower lash line and then toned it down with a plum-purple shade in my outer corners and crease. The eyeshadows I have used for the look are from a palette that I am currently testing out so there will be a full-fledged review later.

So without much ado, here are a few pictures of my makeup for the day.
