According to us, nailing a wedding look is far easier than the other events that surround it. You can go heavier and be done with it. But that’s not the case with other functions – case in point, a Mehendi. Because, you need a bit of restraint when it comes to makeup at your smaller functions. But more than that, you need to keep it simple and build the momentum up for a bolder look at the wedding. That’s why Mehendi makeup becomes tricky. So we looked all over the net and found you some really simple looks that will nail that Mehendi style down pat. Blushing Babe
Mehendi is all about looking natural and sweet and nothing makes you look fresh than a coat of blush on your cheeks. So instead of going subtle on that and enhancing everything else, try to go big on blush and pick from a neat pink to a profound peach. Mute everything else down, keep your liner minimal and your base, flawless. WMG Tip: Pick pinks / corals if you’re fair. Rose / apricot for medium skintones. Look for browns / tangerines for dark skin. Neutral Palette
Keeping your makeup natural yet glowy and scintillating takes a bit of effort. Make sure your base is right, use bronzer and contour your face to perfection and go nude / faint pink on your lips. It adds glamour and keeps your look striking. Let your eyes also stay neutral but with a bit of liner. Don’t forget your brows (they need to be big and bold) and highlight your cheekbones! WMG Tip: To pop your look, try a bit of highlighter to the inner corners of eyes, cupid’s bow, and chin for best results. Pastel Pretty
A dewy face is most in demand for an event like your Mehendi because you don’t want to do too much or too little. That’s why a pale pink eyeshadow makes sense – it adds glam but keeps your look subtle. Not many opt for it but it does keep your face looking light and effortless – all you need to do is to keep your lashes dewy with clear mascara and go with some shiny lip balm on your lips. Ta-da! WMG Tip: Go for the right pink – that’s key to your look. Pale pinks work on Indian tones – avoid fuchsia or neons – not for us! A slight shimmery feel works too. Blue or Purple For The Day
Would you go dark with your makeup on your Mehendi? While that’s debatable – we think a sweet blue or a purple is a great option to try instead of a smokey eye. You can try variations of blue – keep them ombre or even try adding a bit of shimmer into your purple shadow. These days, these darker colours are being opted for more than the black smokey eye because these hues give it a more lighter feel and make you look gorgeous. WMG Tip: If you are a bit on the wheatish side, pick a purple that has copper or bronze tones. Fair-skinned girls can try purple with a grey-ish tone. Shimmer & Shine
Everyone loves shimmer, don’t they? That’s why a sweet neutral shimmer eyes ticks both boxes – it’s bold, yet at the same time, it’s low-brow. Effortless is the word. When just nude shimmer is slathered on, it makes perfect sense to wear your eyelids heavy. So slather on a thick mascara and line your eyes with a gel-liner to create density. Now keep the rest of your face easy and toned down. Done! WMG Tip: For an aded dimension, mix a black and brown and apply it to the outer corners of your eyes to add drama to the look..
