In continuance with my ‘Makeup Looks for Mehendi‘ post, today I have listed 5 of my favorite makeup looks for the Indian sangeet or cocktail function. These events require a more dramtaic makeup, especially if your are doing a staged performance. You could also go for a striking look if it is just a cocktail party.
1. CLASSIC GOLD EYE WITH RED LIPS
Kaushal’s classic gold eye look is easy to achieve. You could wear any light to medium shade lip colour with the gold eyes. You can pair this look with most Indian clothes with touches of gold in it.
2. SILVER EYE WITH CRIMSON LIPS
Nic’s dramatic silver grey eye look is time taking and may require prior prcatice. You could pair this dramatic look with your cocktail gowns or volumnious Indian outfits with silver embroidery.
3. PINK SHADED EYE WITH PINK LIPS
This look by Lily is easily achievable.You can pair this versatile makeup look with most of your ensembles. You could play around with colours to add drama to this soft look, check this video for a more dramatic plum look.
4. DRAMATIC BLUE EYE WITH BRICK-RED LIPS
This look is commonly worn by wedding guests, but for those who want a step-by-step guide watch the tutorial. Your eye shadow colour should match the secondary colour of your outfit, for example apply pink eye shadow if you are wearing a green kurta with pink border.
5. NEUTRAL EYE WITH DARK LIPS
Lisa’s video is an in-depth discussion on how to wear dark lipstick along with the neutral eye makeup look. Though long it is helpful in deciding which shade of lip colour to pick. The in-trend berry lip colours can be paired with pink, yellow or grey outfits.
The above looks are aimed at the women in the bridal party as most brides go for heavier looks. You could also use the above videos as a guide if using a professional artist. These makeup styles are not limited to be worn just for the sangeet. Lisa’s berry lips for example can be worn for the wedding or even with western outfits. I would suggest young bridesmaids to experiment with colours and styles, customise the makeup to suit your personality. But once in a while break away from the mould too. Have fun. 😉
P.S. Most of these vidoes are by international vloggers and you might not find the exact makeup product in India. Also please try out the makeup colours to see which shade suits you before investing in them.
