One of the most common dilemmas most girls are faced with when dressing up in extravagant indian/pakistani wear is how to apply their make up?! It’s fair to think that it depends on the colors and the mood, but there’s a fine line between looking like a lady and a clown.
Here are some of the main things to think about when doing your make up.
The idea is to create the WOW look, effortlessly. So make sure that your use of concealer and foundation is just enough to blend into the skin’s natural color and not like a whole new layer of skin is put on you. Simply blend, blend, blend away.
Its always a good idea to choose the tone that is in the embroidery. For instance, if the embroidery is more gold you can used gold and copper to highlight the make up, however if its more silver then you can opt for more silver or white tones. Please avoid mixing them up!
If the Sari, Lehenga or Kameez is quite heavy and rich looking, opt for more sutle make up. You can accentuate the eyes and play down the lips or vice versa. However please dont make the make up too dark or too colorful, as it tends to bring down the whole look.
If you do decided to use darker make up, please keep the accessories simple. The whole idea is to figure out, what is it that you want to standout and work with it accordingly.
Please keep in mind that no matter how you do your make up, it has to work with the overall look that you are trying to create. It is easy to get carried away and go over board so please know when to stop.
The whole idea of using make up is to work with your natural features to where you highlight them and create an overall glow. Most ladies tend recreate their face with a burst of colors and that is usually where they go wrong. Enjoy playing with colors and love the face your working with and watch the beauty in the mirror.
