1. Engagement Makeup Look

Engagement makeup

• Subtle Look

Get the Look:

  • Start off your base makeup with primer and follow it up with concealer and foundation. Since you’re trying for a simple engagement makeup look, your best bet should be a light-weight foundation.
  • Define and fill in your brows with a brown eyebrow pencil. The key is to natural-looking brows are small strokes.
  • For a subtle pop of color, pick a rosy pink for the eyes. Dab in your crease and blend ntowards the outer corner of your eyes with the help of a brush.
  • Next, line your waterline with a smudge-proof black kohl pencil. Then for the least theatrical look, draw a thin line along your upper lash line with a black eyeliner.
  • Complete your look by applying a blush pink lipstick. For precision, you could first use a lip liner of the same shade.

• Glam Look

Get the Look:

  • Prep your face first with primer and follow it up with concealer and a liquid-based foundation.
  • Apply a glitzy illuminator on the high points of your face for an effortless glow. While you are at it, also dab a little highlighter on the brow bone and inner corner of your eyes to add some definition. Already glowing, aren’t you?
  • Sweep a metallic pink eyeshadow formula all over your eyelids and blend well.
  • No high-glam look is complete without a hypnotic pair of falsies. We recommend going in with triple-stacked lashes for some major drama.
  • Complete the look with a smooth swipe of nude pink bullet across your lips.

2. Wedding Makeup Look

Light makeup for wedding

• Subtle Look

Get the Look:

  • After applying a primer, start your base makeup by blending a liquid-based foundation with a beauty blender. Dot the problem areas on your face with a full-coverage concealer and blend it well.
  • Once you’ve achieved an even skin tone, add a thin stroke with an eyeliner to your upper lash line. For a shimmer finish, sweep a little glitter over your lids for some subtle shimmer.
  • Now for some ‘extra’ fun. Glue on a pair of lightweight falsies to your lashes to add a stroke of effortless drama.
  • If you’re going to blush all day, you might as well look good while doing it. Pick a red blush with velvety finish and smoothly glide it over your cheekbones for a flus of color.
  • You’re almost there. Keep your lips muted with a nude shade.

• Glam Look

Get the Look:

  • Start with a blend of waterproof concealer and foundation. This takes care of your wedding makeup base just in case things get a little out of hand, emotionally.
  • Focus on highlighting three main points, the top of your forehead, down the centre of your nose and your cupid’s bow. Opt for a liquid highlighter for a dewy finish.
  • Pick the royal golden shade from your eyeshadow palette and sweep it over your lids. For a gentle smoky finish, trace over that with a dark shadow and smudge it.
  • Stroke your lash line with a black eyeliner. Extend it for a dramatic wing. To bring to life your not-so-flattering lashes, perk them up with a very intense pair of falsies.
  • For plumper lips, line them first with a nude liner. And then fill your lips with generous coats of a deep red lipstick.

3. Reception Bridal Makeup Look

Wedding reception makeup

• Subtle Look

Get the Look:

  • A reception bridal makeup look is never complete without a full-coverage base. Opt for a concealer and foundation that gives your skin maximum coverage without the cakey finish.
  • It’s time to fill in the brows because a bride does not underestimate the power of defined brows.
  • Dab a dark shade powder from the color palette over your lids and sweep a lighter pink shade on the crease. Use your ring finger or sponge to merge the two colors.
  • Apply thick coats of mascara to your lashes, to play up the drama without going overboard.
  • Go nude with your lips. A swipe of pinkish nude tending would do the trick.

• Glam Look

Get the Look:

  • Prep your face first with a primer and follow it up with concealer and foundation.
  • The key to this look is contouring and following it up with highlighting to make your face look sculpted and defined. Opt for a cream-based highlighter and contour palette.
  • On the crease of your eyes, sweep a silver shimmer liquid eyeshadow. Be skimpy with the coats on this one.
  • Pick a liquid eyeliner and draw a dramatic wing along the upper lash line. Pull a thin stroke along the lower lash line until it meets the wing.
  • Lastly, complete the look with a red coral shade on your lips.
