Thanks to the pandemic, large social gatherings are neither permitted nor advisable. Due to this, several couples are either postponing their wedding dates or opting for intimate Zoom weddings. If you’ve been invited to attend a virtual wedding and are fretting over how to look your best on screen, follow these simple tips. After all, you don’t want that mischievous cousin of yours to take a pathetic screenshot of you and post it on the family group, do you?


1. Keep your base makeup minimal

Keep your base makeup minimal

Since your device’s camera already has a slight blurring effect, it can hide minor imperfections quite easily. This is why you don’t need a heavy coverage foundation; a lightweight tinted moisturiser or a BB cream will work just fine. However, if you still feel like you need some extra coverage, go ahead and apply a bit of concealer on those areas and ta-da! Your base makeup is done.

2. Stick to neutral eye shadows

As for your eyes, stick to neutral shades like gold, brown or pink as they complement most Indian outfits and look super flattering on Indian skin tones. Draw a cat-eye or winged eyeliner (or skip eyeliner completely) and swipe on 2-3 coats of mascara to open up your peepers and make them look bright and wide.

3. Add some blush

Swipe on some rosy blush on the apples on your cheeks to add a flush of colour to your face and give it a youthful appearance. A peachy-pink blush will flatter most Indian skin tones and helps brighten up the entire face.

Since you’ll be attending this wedding virtually from the comfort of your home, you wouldn’t need to wear a mask. And guess what this means? You can wear that new lip colour, which you have been waiting to flaunt (yaaay)! This is the perfect opportunity to wear lipsticks and pucker your pout. But a word of caution – if you are experimenting with your eye makeup, then we would suggest that you stick to nude lip colour.

Since this is a virtual wedding, you don’t need to spend too much time on your hair; a simple yet chic hairstyle will do the trick. Simply straightening your hair or adding soft curls will look incredibly stylish. If you don’t want to use heat, then try braided or bun hairdos. No matter how you decide to style your hair, simply adding a statement hair accessory is enough to turn things around and step up your hair game.
