“Whoa! That lehenga is so heavy how
do you even manage to keep that on?”
“Has the corporation people hired you
to be the official sweeper for the hall, with this sweeping long Anarkali?”
“What happened to your eyes, with that black shadow around it, I thought you
were feverish or something”
And when you get tired of all the
above comments, you wear something simple and then, the classic:
“Wow, you always go for the simple
look, huh? Could you not have gone for
something with a little more bling no? It’s a wedding after all!”
Being a wedding guest is not that easy when you live in India. You need to be
camera confident, but not too over the top. You need to look decent in front of
the elders yet can’t let yourself not seem trendy in front of your cousins.
Treading the fine line between being too outrageous or too simple is quite a
big adventure. And I know none of this intro is necessary for my readers who
have gone through all these dilemmas while picking out your “guest look”
outfits and makeup.
As it is already evident from the above comments I have experienced through out my life, I in NOWAY claim to be a pro at nailing "guest look". But recently at my cousin's marriage, I believe I managed to achieve that perfect look for once and I just want to share it with my lovely readers! :)
This outfit was purchased as a ready to stitch churidar set from Milan Designs, M.G.Road Cochin, and stitched at Tarot Designs, Convent Road.
My makeup look for the night included a sparkly gold smokey eyes, with peacock green eyeliner on the bottom lid and and a pink lipstick.
- The first step of the makeup was to put in my freshlook contact lenses in honey , as i wanted to try out wearing it before the brother's wedding.
- I decided to skip the usual foundation routine and instead I applied my Bourjois primer and went straight onto my chambor concealer, and touched up any spots that needed coverage and blended it all out with my finger and topped it with L'Oreal infallible compact.
- I applied the Faces blush in a coral shade on my cheeks using an angled brush and i was done wit my face makeup.
- Next up. I moved onto the eyemakeup. I used the Bourjois primer as the eyemakeup primer too, and blended it all over.
- I used a dark gold shade from the KKCenterHK 15 color palette and applied it all over the lid using the Sigma E40 brush.
- Then I used my maybelline hyperglossy liquid liner to line my top lashline and the L'Oreal eyeliner from the Cannes range in a peacock green color to line my bottom lash line. I curled my lashes and applied the Maybelline Hyper Curl Mascara generously and this was the finished eyemakeup look
- Finally, I used my favorite colorbar lipstick in Fuschia Fix all over my lips and I was almost done with my makeup!
- The last step was to set my makeup, and for that I used my recently discovered holy grail product, which is the The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist, which does an amazing job as a face refresher or a makeup setting spray.
Anyways, that is all for now! Keep tuned for my post on what I wore and how I did my hair , Not to mention all the juicy details on the brides makeup and outfit details and makeup for my younger brother's wedding.
