Is it just me or does it feel like *at least* one person you know is getting hitched every day? A gazillion zoom-weddings later, it’s finally the time to get dolled up and attend a wedding in person. I know I’ve definitely missed it. There’s nothing like pre-wedding attendance excitement, amirite? Yep, I just coined that word. The whole process of selecting a dazzling outfit, pairing it with just the perfect jewellery and footwear to go with it—absolutely unbeatable!

‌‌One part of this process that reigns supreme is certainly getting that wedding makeup look on fleek! After all, it’s that time of the year when everything’s glowing and shimmering, so why shouldn’t you? With so many tutorials and makeup inspo pictures floating around the Internet, you’re bound to be overwhelmed. That’s exactly why we’re going to give you the lowdown on how to get the most elegant makeup look that’s going to take everyone’s breath away.

We spoke to celebrity makeup artist Ojas Rajani, who had this to say—

“Since weddings are synonymous with shimmer, shine and all things that enhance your glow, your makeup look should also exude the exact same energy. Prepping your skin is the key to acing a glowy base, opt for a hydrating serum with Vitamin C, this will give you a rather dewy and glowing base. If you’re looking to take your base game up a notch, choose an illuminating foundation that will amplify your radiance.”‌‌

She also mentions,

“Cream blushes are IT right now because no other formulation gives you a natural flush as they do. For the eyes, always opt for lightly shimmered eyeshadows in champagne, rose gold and bronze tones—colours of the season, after all! Is it even an ethnic makeup look if you’re missing some highlighter? A highlighter with any sort of moonlight shimmer in it is your best bet.”‌‌

To finish off this breathtaking makeup look, Ojas tells us that,

“It’s always fun taking a risk with your lipstick. A classic red lip ties the whole look together. However, if you happen to be one of those individuals who enjoy playing it safe, brown and mauve shades knock it out of the park!”

Here are a few makeup looks you could try recreating—

For the ones who love keeping it minimalistic and subtle, this soft sunkissed look with peachy cheeks is the perfect pick. The eyes are laced with muted browns and the lips are graced with rosy pinks.

Sometimes, a light smokey eye with berry and champagne gold tones is your best bet. After all, these colours automatically translate to weddings! With slightly peachy lips, this look is perfect for an afternoon celebration.

Well, who can resist a classic smokey eye? I know I never can. However, if you’re looking to balance out the intense vibe of your eye makeup, always opt for a lipstick that’s neutral. This pinkish-peach shade complements the eye makeup just the way it should!

Whether you’re a bride, bridesmaid or just simply attending a wedding, red lipstick can enhance all of that glowing makeup with so much ease. A soft eyeshadow? Check. A deep smokey eye? Check. A dramatic winged eyeliner? Check. See? This classic is never going out of style!
