Traditional Indian sarees have, in recent decades undergone a lot of changes when it comes to design, fabrics, patterns and so on. Sarees can make a woman look naturally gorgeous, however; it is always the correct make-up that accentuates your general appearance.
There are many different types of dresses that women can wear, but the saree is perhaps the only one that never quite loses its old world charm. A traditional form of Indian wear, sarees have been extremely successful in making women look beautiful, irrespective of the woman’s body type or age.
However, if you are unsure about how to apply proper makeup, doing a beauty and makeup course somewhere might not be a bad idea. I often recommend this to women who don’t know what colors go with sarrees. As sarees come in many colors, fabrics and patterns, it can be a little confusing to say the least.
The make-up you should apply depends on the saree you are wearing. It also depends on the occasion, your skin tone and naturally, your personal preferences. In saying that, there definitely are few make-up tricks. If you follow them, it can give you the look to simply die for. Some of these include:
The Main Focus Should be the Eyes with a small focus on your lips If you need to attend a daytime occasion, you should probably wear a light coloured saree. A suggestion is for a cat eye makeup by using a good dose of mascara, kajal and some eye shadow. By applying some light gloss on your lips, you are all set and ready to go. If however the occasion demands it, you can use red lipstick but go for smoky eyes.
If your complexion is little pale, you should perhaps replace the red with brown and you will look simply stunning.
Nude Make-Up and Kajal
When wearing a really stunning saree, the focus should be on it and not your makeup. By wearing nude make-up, that will enhance the natural beauty of your face and not look over done. Add fine lines of eyeliner and kajal on the upper as well as your lower lashes to get that perfect look.
Get Extra Gloss by using Oil Based Makeup
When wearing a zardosi-embroidered saree with some simple jewellery, a good look can be achieved by using oil-based make-up. The effect this will have is that it will make your skin look shiny while also giving you that formal look for evening occasions.
Get Rosy Cheeks by Using Pink Blushers
To highlight your cheek bones and lift them a little higher, use a rosy cheek make-up . This is perhaps the best look when you wear pink, white or red sareees. But, always compliment the look you are trying to achieve with dark eye make-up and lip gloss.
