Mehndi is a traditional occasion among wedding ceremonies in South Asia. Mehndi is thought to be a lively, colorful and important part of wedding celebrations. Mehndi event has a small number of gatherings but it has the same joy, charm and excitement . Every woman love to attend and celebrate this cheerful function by heart.
The bride seems to be very conscious about her makeup on her mehndi or mayoon. She wants to save her final and ultimate look for her wedding day, and she needs to look almost as good on the mehndi ritual. So, it is important to maintain a balanced look on the mehndi night.
Lets discuss about achieving this elegant look through makeup :
Flawless and youthful skin will give you fresh and delicacy. For this purpose clean your face properly and apply the suitable base coat with a touch of face powder in case of oily skin. Avoid applying heavy foundation in layers because this act will make you look aged. There is no need to enhance your feature, just hide the dark circles around your eyes, uneven skin tone and blemishes so that you look naturally beautiful and innocent.
Eye Shades :
Usually mehndi dress colors are in vibrant shades of yellow, orange and green but some brides add purple and hot pink also. You may pick the slight gold and a mild brown or copper as well. Apply mild color of eye shade which goes with the color of dress. Mild gold or a light brown color of eye shades blending look gorgeous.
Kajal is a necessary part of eye makeup and is most in demand. Apply a fine line inside your eyes or you can also apply charcoal black or graphite gray eye liner or pencil on upper lid only, it is better to smudge this line with a cotton swab very softly as it will creates a stunning effect and compliment the whole eye makeup.
Don’t forget to add some natural glow on your cheek bones with light pink blush-on. Mild purple blush-on also gives pretty and fresh look.
Light pink lip gloss or lipstick is most favorable but you can also apply crimson lip gloss or lipstick. Avoid making outline of your lips with lip pencil or thin lip brush, just pat your lipstick with your finger tip or use stain technique to make your lips look natural.
Don’t ever forget to give a light touch of shimmer to the bride so that she glows in the pictures and on the stage.
- If you are wearing light shaded yellow, orange or green dress then have light touch of makeup along with some sparkling blush-on and a lip gloss to highlight your face.
- If you are wearing some glittered gotta kinari or dabka kinari dress or zari work, gharara and sharara then you can have some high touch makeup.
- Do not ever forget to wear jhoomar, tikka, full bangles and heavy earrings on the mehndi night.
- Wearing “Gujra” made of fresh flowers such as rose, marigold, jasmine, gardenia, orchids etc. is a must in both hands. You can also tug fresh flower jewelry around your hair, as a garland or on your forehead or as a necklace. Mehndi or mayoon bride is incomplete without it.
