India has 4 seasons – summer, monsoon, winter, and wedding! We’ve come back to that time of the year, when calendars are filled with wedding invites and save-the-dates! Although we love the fun of weddings, we find it so unfair that bride is the only one who gets her own hair and make-up team! Guests have to look gorgeous too! So this year, we are launching the ‘Wedding Wednesday’ series – a make-up guide for every wedding function!

‘Mehendi laga ke rakhna, doli saja ke rakhna!’ Shah Rukh Khan has taught us the importance of this function, and we desi girls need to look our very best for it (just in case our own Shah Rukh is looking for us!).

Face

Skip the heavy foundation, and opt for a tinted moisturizer. Glowing skin always looks beautiful!

Eyes

Nothing enhances eyes more, than black liner! Draw thin lines, both on your upper eye lid and on the lower rim, to define eyes. Top off with volumizing mascara.

Cheeks

For a fresh look, blend a bright pink blush onto the apples of your cheeks. Go for a cream formula, for a natural finish.

Lips

A happy function deserves a bright colour! Swipe on a hot pink or spunky orange lipstick. You can choose to go for a matte or shimmery formula.

Remember to pick waterproof, and smudge-proof formulas for all your products! Your mehendi-laden hands will not be able to fix any splotches! Put your hair into a pretty braid (we adore fishtail braids), so that it doesn’t come in your way. Now go and find your Shah Rukh!
