Scintillating sultry Indian bridal makeup looks for weddings, special events and parties
Be proud of the skin tone and shade you have been born or blessed with, because a sultry canvas is a gorgeous platform to work with when it comes to dolling up a bride. Today we shall talk about the sultry maiden’s Indian bridal makeup and looks. If you thought rose flushed cheeks were only for the fair to medium toned skin women and girls at weddings, think again.
1. Sultry eyes: Begin with an eye wash choosing a tone from the naked palette closest to your eyelid skin color. Give it a swipe and then start by highlighting the crease line to the end of the eyes (outer corner) with a shade of maroon. The brow bone should be highlighted with a touch of yellow or cream powder, to lift the eyes.
The mid section where the ball of the eye rests should be touched with a shimmery shade of copper, blending it well under the highlighted brow bone area and into the crease line. Invisible black kajal should be applied to the upper eyelids (2 strokes) and lower eyelids (half and one stroke only). With an angular brush the kajal should be blended into the lash lines as well.2. Sultry lips: To make the lips stand out and with a sultry touch that too, we shall focus on deep browns, red wines, berries and even dark pinks to bring that touch. What you would first need to do is to moisturize the lips with balm. Wait for a couple of seconds before applying your first shade of tint (tint is applied only when the lips are cracked). With the help of a lip pencil closest to the shade of your lipstick, draw an outline focusing on the cupid’s brow. T
ake a lip filler brush and choose a shade closest to your bridal wear and the lip liner, to fill into the space. Now use a flat brush to blend the color into the lips along with the liner- fill the mid section of the lips with matte powder (closest hue to the lipstick should be chosen). Repeat with a final coat of the lipstick and touch up with lip balm.3. Sultry yet natural with peaches and pinks: You could have a touch of smoke on the eyes, but balance the look with peachy pink lips and contoured cheeks. Once the eye makeup is done, you should then focus on cheeks. Use a foundation brush, dipped a little into the peachy cream blush. Apply one stroke first from the crevice of the cheek to the temple zone- upwards.
With a blusher brush, blend the creamy peach blush into the skin with upward strokes. Now use NG1 from the kryolan pallete- 1 stroke per cheek in a single line above the cheekbones. Use a powder brush to blend the color into the skin, over which you may add one more touch of peachy pink cream blush for the sultry effect to be defined.
4. Sultry bronzed peach look: The sultry bronzed peach look works best for women with medium to dark or dusky skin, where a hint of peach makes all the difference and the ideal bronzer works wonders to define and contour the cheeks. For this, you would need to highlight and contour at the same time.
Apply one stroke first from the crevice of the cheek to the temple zone- upwards. With a blusher brush, blend the creamy peach blush into the skin with upward strokes. Now use NG1 from the kryolan pallete- 1 stroke per cheek in a single line above the cheekbones. Now take a powder brush and dab onto the bronzer, using one stroke per cheek only just above the blusher. Use a powder brush to blend the bronzer into the blush and leave it at that.
5. Sultry bohemian for very dark skin: Very dark skin is a canvas to play with, which allows colors to pop up very well and there can be variations of peach and pinks indulged in too. Begin by applying one stroke of foundation all over the face– focusing more on the jawline and the cheeks.
Apply a stroke on each cheek bone with a shade of peach, blending it upwards into the skin towards the temple bone for the illusion of length to be created. For the eyes, begin with highlighting the brow bone in lemon yellow (1 stroke), for the mid section and the crease, a light shade of silver or gray and towards the outer and the inner corner of the eyes, a darker shade of silvery white would be ideal. Blend them into a mix to create a sultry look for the wedding.
