DIY Indian Wedding Makeup Tutorial : Classic Red and Gold Makeup (VIDEO)

 

Hey everyone!

I recently collaborated with Nykaa.com for series of wedding videos and the first video in this series is a traditional indian wedding look! Since I did my own makeup for my wedding, I thought it would be fun to show you how to create the classic red-gold look. The best part – all the products are easily available on Nykaa and its a fairly simple look that you can easily recreate!

Thanks to Nykaa for arranging such gorgeous styling, I loved being decked up all royal for this shoot!

Orange Shimmer Bridal/Festive Makeup (Video)

 

Hey everyone!

You might recall my cherryculture.com haul where I picked out a few NYX products. One of them was this gorgeous orange pigment – shade Rust which I used here to create a very festive look featuring a metallic, shimmery orange eye. I paired this eye makeup with a peachy lip and glowy skin. This look will go perfectly with red, orange, yellow, peach and coral colored saris and outfits. I also like this look is great for brides (for one of the smaller functions like sangeet etc.) to pair with an outfit in the shades mentioned above!

Sneak Peek : Sultry Bridal Makeup

 

Hey everyone!

After doing 2 slightly softer bridal looks, I decided to go all out with a heavy smokey eye and a deep red lip for my next tutorial. The look is quite dramatic but its quite a popular bridal look! And sans the bindi and other bridal accessories, its a classic fall makeup look that looks great with western wear as well! Hope you will enjoy the tutorial, it will be up early next week!

My Bridal Makeup Kit (so far!)

 

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to show you the products I’ll be keeping in my bridal makeup kit. Since I’ll be leaving right after the wedding, all my other makeup will be packed and I’ll just be keeping a few things for doing my makeup for the functions.

Here are the products that I’ve decided on so far –

BASE MAKEUP

 

Prepping products : MAC Strobe cream for the dry-ish areas of the face, Clinique Pore Refining solutions Instant Perfector (in Invisible Deep) for oily parts and large open pores. I also need another primer here though – maybe Clinique Superprimer – not decided yet!

 

FoundationMAC Matchmaster FoundationBourjois Happy Light foundation. I haven’t got the time to go foundation hunting again so I’m sticking to my trusted favorite MAC Matchmaster for now until I come across something else. Bourjois Happy Light photographs beautifully though slightly lesser coverage but I make up for that with concealer in the required areas. I think I’ll keep this for everyday wear. I will also keep Clinique Superbalanced Foundation as backup in case my skin is feeling too dry. It photographs quite nicely.

 

Corrector + Concealer : Clinique Even Better concealer Orange Brightener and Honeycomb.

 

Powder : Clinique Blended Face Powder is excellent! For touch ups, I’ll probably reach for Lakme Absolute Compact since that’s the one I generally carry with me. Its a decent compact but can be high coverage (and little cakey) if you use too much. I might pick up something else before the wedding though.
