So, you're going to be a bridesmaid. While it is an absolute honour to be a part of the bride's tribe, it does come with its fair share of responsibilities. You need to plan the bachelorette, coordinate sangeet practices and cater to the bride's needs, all the while helping out with the other functions. Such heavy-duty tasks are bound to render you overthinking, overworked and sleepless. If your role as a bridesmaid isn't enough to render you light-headed, then there is the fact that you must do all of this while looking like a knockout.
How do you manage to be photo-ready with all these responsibilities on your shoulders? Should you go minimal or do a bold lip? If not a bold lip, then maybe a bold eye look? How do you decide which look to slay on what function? Well, we're here to answer all those burning beauty questions with our favourite and easy to do makeup looks that can turn any bridesmaid into a stunner.
Here are our favourite makeup looks that are perfect to make every bridesmaid photo-ready.
Soft glam looks are possibly the closest to an effortless and natural look. They require barely any foundation and contouring, sutble eye makeup, a tonne of highlighter and the perfect soft toned lipstick. In fact, these looks are quick to achieve and suit ever skin tone. Honestly, for a subtle day time function, nothing beats some blush and a nude lip.
If you're the bridesmaid who likes OTT makeup, then this is the look for you. Attractive and vivid eye makeup paired with a glamourously dark lipstick and perfectly chiseled features, bold makeup is statement worthy. When it comes to heavy and bold makeup, it's all about the eyes and the lips which makes them best suited for night time functions.
If you're one who doesn't like fussing over touch ups, then an everlasting matte makeup look will help you get through the day and the evening as well. The best way to achieve this look is to use products that do not make you look cakey but give you enough glow and shine, so that everything stays in place without any touchups. Plus, matte makeup is great for those who neither enjoy too much glitter nor the over the top shine in their makeup. The best way to mattify any makeup is to use a matte setting spray once you're done glamming up for a function.
There is no way you can ever go wrong with a smokey eye. It is a great way to achieve a dramatic look while ensuring your makeup is not too exhorbitant. You can pair smokey makeup with either a nude lip or a dark lipstick, depending on the time and kind of function your attending. A smokey eye look doesn't always have to be black. You are free to play with blacks, browns, blues and greens when it comes to this look. For a day look, it is best to go in with a subtle smokey look. By night, you can increase the intensity of this by adding more pigment to your look, without making your makeup look overdone.
