MAKE UP TIPS TO COMPLIMENT YOUR SAREE

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.
Sarees and which makeup to use

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.

SAREES AS USED IN FASHION

Silk Sarees in ancient timesIn the history of Indian clothes, the sari is traced back to the Indus Valley Civilisation, which grew throughout 2800-1800 BC around the western part of the Indian subcontinent. Sari draping leaves back, cleavage, and profile of belly bare. The origin of such exposing clothes can be credited to damp environment of the land. The earliest recognized representation of the sari in the Indian subcontinent is the statue of an Indus Valley priest using a drape.

Poetry from Ancient Tamil  such as the Silappadhikaram and the Sanskrit work, Kadambari by Banabhatta, explains females in elegant drape or sari. The ancient stone engraving from Gangaikonda Cholapuram in old Tamil scripts has a reference to hand weaving. In ancient Indian custom and the Natya Shastra which is an ancient Indian writing explaining ancient dance and outfits, the navel of the Supreme Being is thought to be the source of life and imagination, thus the midriff is to be left bare by the sari.

Other sources state that daily outfit included a dhoti or lungi (sarong), incorporated with a bust band called ‘Kurpasika’ or ‘Stanapatta’ and periodically a wrap called ‘Uttariya’ that might sometimes be made use of to cover the upper body or head. Where as the two-piece Kerala mundum neryathum (mundu, a dhoti or sarong, neryath, a shawl, in Malayalam) is a survival of ancient Indian clothes designs. The one-piece sari is a contemporary development, produced by integrating the 2 pieces of the mundum neryathum.

The Fabric Used in Saree also decides how you will look in a saree. For example, stiff cotton saris give heavy look so these are not suitable for plus size women. Fabrics such as Chiffons, Georgettes and Silk Saris are best outfit for voluptuous large size busty women to show off their voluptuous and curvaceous natural body figure sexier and beautiful.
