Color PALETTE: Color red will remain in vogue in this season and fashionistas will go for dark reds and dark Pink which is burgeoning. Tones like old rose, lilac-pink, fuchsia, and baby pink. will also rule makeup looks. Muted hues of bronze-brown with primrose pink would be sought after too.
For Eyes: Kohl is in vogue these days, and winter is the best time to apply it too, to make the eyes look prominent. Light color mascara adds to the beauty. Apply your makeup meticulously and don’t pile on that makeup on your face. Don’t use heavy pencils or dark shadows to define your brows. Do the talking with eyes so gold mixed with dark shades like brown and burgundy this season would rule the scene, but blending should be done neatly and nicely and for eyeliner, a mix of blue and black is suggested. even green and deep blue are the happening colors of this season for depth and intensity.
The choice of lipstick should be completely in accordance with the skin tone and complexion. A mix of soft peach and orange to offer a very dewy fresh For girls with darker skin tone a good mix of beige and brown always looks great. Don’t forget to top it up with hint of gloss. Lip liners with a darker tone than your lipstick for defining or outlining your lips are a complete no-no . Lipstick should compliment your outfit. Avoid pale colors and flashy colors
For face avoid very glittery blusher as it shines extra in your wedding pictures and makes it look like a wet face. For brides with darker skin tone, copperish blush topped up with a slight bronzer do the trick. If you have a lighter skin tone, go in for colors like peach or soft baby pink for the day wedding and for night one could go in for slightly darker shades with just a hint of shimmer. Be a blushing bride and opt for warm flattering cheek color in a pinky peach or rose. For oily skin, powder blushes are a perfect choice, but if your skin tends to be a bit dry, try a cream blush to achieve a dewy natural glow.
Experiment with nail art and nail shades and colors like gold, peach, and maroon, add a lot of sheen and color. Use everything with the right balance.
