Nude, peach-toned make-up and a tousled hair bun
When it comes to dressing for Indian weddings, there’s a plethora of outfits to choose from—saris, lehengas, shararas—the choices are endless. The same applies for creating beauty looks that match with said sartorial choices. If you’re looking for inspiration for a wedding taking place in the AM, try Sanon’s peachy make-up achieved with understated nude shades to match any pastel outfit. The key to creating the ultimate blush-toned look is finding a nude shade that flatters your skin tone. As for the hairstyle, try Sanon’s chic hair bun with face-framing, loose tendrils.
Brown, smokey eyes and poker straight hair
Sangeet ceremonies traditionally call for a more relaxed silhouette like shararas or Indo-fusion suit sets in lieu of the boisterous activities of the night. So, it’s important to create a beauty look that reflects it—easy, laid back yet glam. Sanon’s bronzed, smokey eye make-up, flawless base and lip colour that matches her outfit is a masterclass in acing the playful sangeet look. Try the poker straight hairstyle if you’re wearing a flowy and flared-out outfit to balance the volume.
High-shine, dewy make-up and glossy lips
Sanon embodies the epitome of cocktail night glamour in this intensely gleaming and sultry make-up look featuring loads of gold highlighter, face contour and shimmery eyeshadow to match her gold sequin sari. Since the memo for a cocktail night remains all things glitter, the make-up essentials to include are—highlighter, gold/silver eyeshadow and body glitter for your collarbones if you’re up for going the extra mile. To accentuate this ‘bronzed Goddess’ look, try tightlining your eyes with kajal and contouring your cheeks for more depth, drama and oomph. To balance it out, opt for sleek dos like middle-parted straight, loose hair and finish off with a shine-boosting serum.
Deeply kohled eyes and layered, wavy hair
Another glamorous look perfect for cocktail night, an after-party or a wedding reception is Sanon’s ’90s’ Bollywood heroine-inspired frosted silver eyeshadow and dark, kohled eye look. The trick to keep in mind when creating an intense look with your peepers is to let them have the spotlight and to keep the rest of the face minimal and muted like Sanon. Pair this with nude lips and flowy, layered waves to add that extra drama. While Sanon wore this look with a black and gold Seema Gujral lehenga, statement eyes can go well with any deep-hued outfit.
Dewy, ‘glazed-donut’ make-up and soft, loose waves
Sanon makes a case for clean, plump and dewy skin and loose, wavy hair with this look, which is ideal if you’re attending a daytime wedding or a mehendi ceremony. When creating a dewy look, prepping the skin and layering the right lightweight formulas is key. To make healthy, glowing skin your main accessory like Sanon, start with prepping your face with skincare and pick hydrating concoctions for the base. Follow this with a primer and lightweight, skin-like foundation and finish off the look with rosy lipstick and blown out wavy hair like the Shehzada actress. The best part about this soft, timeless look is that it will effortlessly match with any and all Indian silhouettes for the wedding season.
