Raksha Bandhan, the Indian festivals dedicated to celebrating the bond between brothers and sisters, is the day when girls take the center stage. Many married girls especially visit their maternal home to celebrate this precious day and it is needless to say they want to look their best.
Along with the outfit, makeup too is a key component to look perfect for the occasion and it’s all about choosing the right shades of color cosmetics. As Raksha Bandhan is a day festival, it is best to go for light, natural or nude makeup. Gaudy makeup in day time spoils the look. Sharing some tips to keep in mind while getting ready for the day:
After cleaning, toning and moisturizing, make a nude or light base. Instead of using base and powder both, you can use two-way cake or mousse which is actually a mixture of Foundation and Powder. It gives fine clear & smooth look.
If you’ve got scars or acne, then use concealer to hide imperfections and get that flawless look. Again, go for natural, skin colored one.
Apply light pinkish, peach or brown blusher across the apples of your cheeks to give them a gorgeous glow.
Apply a small amount of light pink, light blue or green to highlight your eyes.
With light shades of eye color like brown or nude, then go for colored eye liners as gives very nice and sensuous look. But, if have chosen green or black eye colour, a black liner will be perfect. Tiny winged eyeliner can be an alluring too but, avoid overdoing it.
Contouring & Highlighting*
Use contouring and highlighting kit but, avoid over using contour in the day time. Little contouring under the cheeks and above it is fine. Then, highlight cheek bones, nose line and chin to get the desired results.
Youngsters can paint their lips with shades like light pink, peach or nude which will give them natural refreshing look. Newly married weds can try new shades like marsala, plum, purple, maroon etc.
Straightening machines or curlers are easily available which can enhance your look with simple light makeup. You can also use hair gel or serum to give your light curls a wet look. If want to tie your hair, half bun or donut bun is perfect to go with the occasion.
Newlyweds can glamorize their hairstyle with some accessories as well.
Hope these makeup tips will help you get a simple yet attractive look.
Happy Raksha Bandhan!
