Midweek Makeovers

Thursday, 17 October 2013

This weeks Midweek Makeover post features one of my friends who got married this year in August and had a traditional Indian Hindu wedding.

The day was full on, starting from around 8am and she had her reception in the evening around 8pm which went on for longer.. who said weddings weren't tiring?!

Anyway, my friend (Bride V) has never been a fan of too much makeup and doesn't like to wear foundation, the most she would normally wear is a mineral foundation (not that she needs more!) so I had to make her feel like she wasn't wearing a ton of makeup and make it still look like her.
For her morning/day look she wore the traditional red outfit which was broken up with cream and hints of green.
I opted for a neutral gold look with a hint of red on the eyelid and a dark brown/black in the crease, with a pop of green on the lower lashline.
Before and after in natural light:

Her reception was in the evening and we altered the look to match her second outfit which was a fuchsia pink with coral and of course some gold:
I didn't get to take as many pictures for the reception as it was a bit rushed from a slight delay and having to start from scratch with both the hair and makeup but I loved both looks and think she looked stunning the whole day. If I had to choose, my favourite look from the two had to be the traditional Indian red look as the red lipstick suited her so nicely!

Which look do you prefer?



I'd love for you to leave me some comments.. they make me happy!
