ASK AN ELFETTE: Makeup for an Indian Wedding


Hey girl! You have questions... well I have e.l.f. answers and possibilites! Here's a recent question from a fellow elfette that was right up my ally:

"Hi Sonia! I'm going to an Indian wedding Iin a few weeks and it's my first time. I'm borrowing a sari from my friend and I've never worn one before but i think its going to be bright colors. im curious about what makeup to wear because i have brown hair and have blue eyes but ill be wearing the traditional clothes. my skin is kinda medium toned and i want to look like i fit in but dont want to overdo it either. pls help!"— Yvette

I <3 this question Yvette! Wedding season is here and Indian weddings are HUGE! They're bright and fun and give elfettes a chance to play with makeup. Below are some celebrity inspired looks you can try for the perfect look...

Katy Perry's Shades of Gold
Gold shadows are a staple product for Indian Weddings and my picks to get this look are:

• TOAST, lustrous Eyeshadow: It's a beautiful whipped texture that can easily be applied alone and with the fingers
Mineral Eyeshadow: Apply this wet or dry for a beautiful, foiled look.

Vanessa Hudgens, Smoked Liner
Not wearing eyeliner to an Indian wedding is a faux-pas! My picks to get this look are:

STUDIO PRECISION LIQUID EYELINER, because the brush allows for a perfect line especially if you're creating a wing!
STUDIO KOHL EYELINER, for it's smooth and creamy feeling and it's ease in smudging like Vanessa's look.

Alicia Keys, Bronzed cheeks & red lips
A classic red lip and bronzed face is timeless and always looks great at indian Weddings. My picks to get this look are:

• STUDIO CONTOURING BLUSH & BRONZING CREAM, is applied easily and adds warmth
• ESSENTIAL LUSCIOUS LIQUID LIPSTICK in Ruby Slipper, feels soft and stays on! This color os beautiful on anyone.
