1. Daytime Makeup 

It’s likely that you’ll spend a fair share of the wedding attending daytime functions. If you know that you’ll stay under the sun for a long time, avoid dewy and shiny products, but moisturise your skin well and protect with the coverage. Do not forget to complete the look with stylish sunglasses. 

How to Create the Look 

Use your best sheer makeup foundation with a sunscreen, like Ponds BB+ Cream Instant Spot Coverage + Light Make-up Glow Ivory -SPF 30++ enriched with vitamins. It is lightweighted enough to provide a natural coverage, but still tinted, so can mask all blemishes and dark spots.

2. Flawless on Photos 

Makeup that makes your whole face shine could be disastrous, more so in the flash photographs taken at the wedding. To avoid it, we suggest using two different types of foundations — a matte formula and a soft, glowy formula. 

How to Create the Look 

If you are looking for the best wedding makeup foundation for oily skin, apply a matte foundation like the Lakmé 9 To 5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation on your forehead, T-zone. And apply a dewy foundation like the Lakmé Absolute 3D Cover Foundation on the rest of your face, taking it down till your neck. Don’t forget to set the entire face with some loose powder to keep the makeup from budging.

3. Blushing Bright 

As a wedding guest, you may not be in favour of wearing a very bright makeup look. But, take your blush seriously. When you’re attending a daytime function, give your face a natural, healthy flushed look using a rosy blush. It will add an overall glow to your makeup. 

How to Create the Look 

Apply it on the apples of your cheeks, and lightly dust it on the bridge of your nose and chin. Add extra glow to your skin with such skincare products, as the Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Serum With 98% Pure Niacinamide For 2X Skin Brightening which boosts skin radiance, moisturises, nourishes, and improves your skin tone. Cover your serum with the Ponds Bright Beauty Sun Protection SPF 15 PA++ Serum Cream with niacinamide that helps to lighten dark spots and even your skin complexion.

4. Crease Free 

If you want to prevent your makeup from crease, which often happens if you’re wearing full makeup on dry skin for hours, apply glowy eyeshadows, lip gloss, and creamy textures of all your face products. 

How to Create the Look 

What is the best makeup foundation for dry skin, or the best makeup foundation for aging skin? Even if you don’t have one, moisturise your face properly before makeup application, or add a moisturiser to your foundation. For example, you may try Lakme Absolute Fresh Life Essence that is lightweighted, but keeps your skin hydrated and nourished, reduces signs of stress, refreshes, restores and protects.

5. Expressive Eyes 

Instead of a thin, almost invisible eyeliner, you can draw a dramatic wing for a wedding party. This will add contrast and complement your soft eye makeup well. Next, complete your eye makeup with waterproof mascara. 

How to Create the Look 

Whether it’s a monsoon wedding or you just easily get teary-eyed, a smudge-proof, water-resistant mascara will make your peepers look fuller and defined. If you choose dramatic eye makeup, do not forget to set your best party makeup foundation with the powder, or use all in one Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Powder Foundation, especially in your under eye zone, unless you don’t want your eye products to crumble and smudge down in a few hours.

6. Bold Lips 

If you want your lips to be the point of focus for your wedding guest makeup, then vivid, bold lip shades like red, plum, maroon or pop pink are some great picks. Alternatively, for a monotone look, you can match your lip shade with your eye shadow hue. 

How to Create the Look 

While glitter and pastel monotone palettes are suitable for a day event, metallics and popping, brighter shades are perfect for night functions. And of course, if you choose bold lip look, you need to apply your best quality makeup foundation, otherwise, the pop of colour can highlight all the tiny skin blemishes. So, apply a primer, and a thick, full coverage foundation, such as Lakmé 9to5 Flawless Makeup Foundation, to make your skin look really flawless.

7. Natural Beauty 

If you’re fond of simple and stunning no makeup makeup wedding looks, that means you may not use bold lipstick shades, or accentuate your eyes. But your foundation should be thin, even, and perfect for sure. 

How to Create the Look 

To even skin complexion, stick to your best gel foundation makeup, or best lightweight makeup foundation, like Lakmé 9 To 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation. Do not forget to cover all the blemishes with a concealer. Add a touch of translucent powder, or a spritz of setting spray, and you are ready!
