If you’re wondering ‘what sorcery is this?’ – read on.
A Glorious Glow
Iridescence is a timeless aspiration and the perfect bridal look for any wedding function no matter what season or time of day.
Start by creating a smooth, even-toned complexion using the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Foundation in Golden Light that you can see here, applied gently on this bride’s face. Lightweight, the product seeps into the skin imparting a dewy finish. Complete this look with a soft lip color packed with deep pigments. Mrudula chose the Lakmé Absolute Matte Ultimate Lip Color with Argan Oil in Peaches N Cream that glides onto the lips with a luxurious finish.
Sugar and Spice
The enchantment is wrought from a certain innocence that is touched with strength. The look manages to come across as gorgeously romantic as well. The key here is that hint of color you see on the bride’s cheek created with the Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos in Rose Blush. That flushed look blends in perfectly with the complexion and stays in place without any touch-ups. The Lakmé Absolute Matte Ultimate Lip Color with Argan Oil in Crimson Silk is the right shade of bold, its deep hue in contrast with the fresh face. Again, the lip color’s long wear quality ensured there was no cracking or chapping through the day.
A Midnight Mystery
A touch of mystery in a woman is instantly appealing. Here, whether you use a whimsical hint of the color or an intense shot of it, this midnight blue has a depth that is mesmerizing. Recreate this look by using the rich blue pigments from the Lakmé Absolute Eye Shadow Palette Royal Persia on the center of the eyelids, working the edges with a diffused, smoked out effect. With the eyes as the focus of the makeup, Mrudula keeps the rest of the bride’s face understated. The moisturizing formulas of the Lakmé Absolute Matte Ultimate Lip Color with Argan Oil in Soft Nude brings that exact balance with the right amount of unabashed glamor.
