Makeup to Try With Sarees
Wearing mismatched makeup with your outfit can ruin the whole appearance of your attire. Makeup enhances the overall look and beauty of your attire, thus making you look more beautiful.
If you are wearing a saree to any special occasion like marriage, sangeet, reception, birthday party, get-together, festivity etc, then wearing proper makeup is must. So here are some makeup tips to go with various saree colors.
If your saree color is ivory, beige, white, off-white, cream, or light peach, then you should go for a classic retro makeup look. Retro look doesn’t include heavy makeup; rather it includes minimal makeup, lined eyes and bold lips.
First apply foundation on your face. Give your eyes a winged look with the eye liner. Use black eyeliner, close your eyes and apply a think or thick stroke of liner over your eyelids. Use dark red, hot red or maroon lipstick on your lips.
Go for rose or deep nude shades of eye-shadows. Finish the look by applying some blush on your cheeks.
Makeup with smoking hot eyes is always the show stealer and goes well with deep coloured sarees. First apply some eye primer on your eye lids so that the eye shadow completely sticks to your eye lids. If you want a black smokey eye look you can first take some black eye shadow and apply it on your eye lids, starting from the eye lashes and ending just below the eyebrows.
Then you can take some grey shade and apply gently on the lower half of the eye lids. Mix the two shades with a brush so as to get a heavy smokey eye look.
But if you want to try something different you can try deep shades like navy blue, grey, shimmery brown, shimmery dark blue, deep green or plum shade. Use mascara to enhance your eyelashes so as to get an enhanced look.
If you have a fair complexion and wearing deep coloured sarees, then you should go for a makeup look that will enhance your complexion. In order to get a gorgeous, fair and enhanced look, all you need is foundation, compact, highlighter, concealer, blush and medium pink lipstick shade.
First apply foundation on your face, and then apply some concealer under your eyes, chin, forehead, cheekbones and nose. Then use gold shade highlighter on your cheekbones, nose, lip curve, and near the eye creases. Use a light pink blush on your cheeks and seal the look with nude pink or deep pink lipstick.
Nude makeup look is very different from no makeup look. Nude makeup look enhances your features and gives you a natural look.
Apply some foundation and concealer and then cover the look with transparent loose compact powder. Use taupe, champagne or mauve eye shadow on your eye lids. Use a brown kajal and eyeliner to enhance your eyes.
Use a nude lip liner on your lip lines and then finish the look with various nude lip shades like nude pink, nude brown, rose pink, deep nude or coffee colour.
Oily or Shiny Makeup
Oily makeup goes perfectly with saree, but one disadvantage about this makeup look is that overdoing it can give disastrous results.
Take some powder or liquid highlighter and mix it with your foundation. Apply this shiny foundation on your face and then brush some compact on your face. Apply some bright pink blush on your cheeks and some more highlighter on your cheekbones and nose.
Finish the look with a glossy lipstick shade.
For this look you need to apply considerable amount of blush on your cheekbones, so as to uplift them and make your face look sharp and gorgeous. Fair and wheatish skin girls should go for rosy blush or light pink blush.
Dusky women should go for deep pink blush shade. You can also use mauve or peach blushes. Complete the look with smokey eye makeup and glossy lipstick shade.
If you want to apply simple makeup on your face, then you use red lipsticks to get a bold look. You can use any shade of red lipstick on your lips, like bright red, deep red, maroon or any other shade of red.
Make sure to use a shade of red lipstick that will complement the colour of your saree.
Dusky Skin Tone and Bright Coloured Saree
If you have a dusky complexion and are wearing a bright coloured saree, then you should go for a mixed makeup so that it complements both your skin tone and saree colour.
You should opt for bright orange, wine, plum or coral blushes, according to your saree colour. Use matte compact on your face and finish the look with burgundy or bright red lip shades.
Black & White Saree Makeup
If you are wearing a black and white saree, then go for a subtle and subdued makeup. As black and white are contrasting colors,, you should opt for a simple makeup look. After applying foundation on your face, apply a light shade concealer under your eyes, nose, cheek and chin.
Then apply a dark shade concealer on your nose, forehead and jawline. Blend the concealer shades properly so as to get a contouring effect. Use a light pink blush on your cheeks and go for pink or rosy nude lipsticks. Finish the look with a black bindi.
