My 5 Best Lipstick Shades for Indian Bridal Makeup:
The wedding day is the most important day for any girl. This is the day she wants to look like a diva. But as a bride-to-be, you are also expected to look your best at the many ceremonies, events, parties and get-togethers that precede the wedding. So, apart from the outfits, you are naturally very cautious about your make-up.
Of all the make-up essentials, the right lipstick is the most vital. Your lip colour is of top importance when it comes to completing your look. Read on to know the shades of lipsticks that you absolutely must have in your make-up box. So, here are the 5 best lipstick shades for all brides-to-be.
#1. Seductive nude
Now you see it, now you don’t! That is the beauty of this sexy shade of lipstick. This is one of the perfect colours for every soon-to-be bride. But remember- the nudes that appear as if you have wiped off your lipstick are not the correct choice. Make sure that the shade goes well with your skin tone. Just like your foundation, nude lipsticks come in different shades too; like beige, ivory, honey, sheer, etc. They are available in matte, glossy and shimmery finishes to match your outfit.
Style Tip: Play with your eye make-up (go for smoky eyes) and bronzer if you choose to keep the lips nude.
#2. Pretty pink
With shades of pink, you can never go wrong. Be it for your wedding or engagement or your cocktail party. You can play with fuchsia, baby pink or hot pink, depending on the colour of your outfit. However, if your complexion is dusky, do try on different shades before the actual event to see which one goes well with the outfit.
Style Tip: Play with contrasts. For example, wear a hot pink lipstick with a turquoise or royal blue outfit, or fuchsia with an orange or green outfit.
#3. Cherry red
This is perfect for the brides-to-be who are planning to wear traditional Indian outfits. Cherry red goes with almost all Indian outfits, no matter what colour you choose. Make sure you choose a moisturising lipstick to avoid the shabby, cracked look at the creases.
Style Tip: Keep the rest of the make-up subtle to avoid the over-the-top look.
#4. Hot plum
Plum is your colour if you wish to be bold and subtle at the same time. With simple eye make-up, this deep shade on your lips will give a super-sexy look with any outfit. However, plums go best with Indo-western wear or gowns.
Style Tip: Choose a glossy or shimmery plum shade to be the centre of attention.
#5. Playful choco
The chocolate variety of brown is a must in every soon-to-be bride’s make-up case. You can team the choco brown shade with Indian as well as western wear. So, chocolaty brown lips can be flaunted with sarees, lehengas, and even gowns.
Style Tip: Go for a super-glossy choco brown to enhance your look. Mattes are not the best choice for special occasions.
Do not forget
No matter what colour you pick, make sure you remember these points:
- Don’t forget to line your lips before applying the lipstick for a longer-lasting and well-defined effect.
- No matter what brand you choose, make sure your lipstick is from the long-lasting range.
- Have a clear gloss handy, and keep adding the glossy touches to keep the look from going dull.
- If you do not want too much shine, you can apply lip balm over your lipstick to keep your lips moist throughout the event.
