Get glamorous for your wedding cocktail party with Lakmé Absolute
Here are a few red carpet-worthy looks that will help you steal the show!
Wedding cocktail parties are known for serving up delicious drinks, scrumptious appetizers and sensational looks! One of the most eagerly-awaited soirees among wedding celebrations, this is the perfect premise for channeling your inner celebrity and being your most glamorous self. In the latest edition of Bridal Diaries, with Titan Raga Cocktail Watches and Lakmé Absolute, we explore makeup and styles that look like they belong in tinsel town!
Makeupmissile by Preeti Jain and Makeup by Nandini Advani transformed the brides using their expert skills and collection of makeup by Lakmé Absolute. Formulated using international cosmetic technologies, the products last for long hours without needing touch-ups. In addition to this, rich pigments are packed in, helping create looks that are vibrant and beautiful.
In a conversation with us, the makeup experts talk about their favorite products by the brand and break down each look that they put together.
There is a time and place for some high-intensity shimmer and a cocktail party is certainly the perfect opportunity to add a sparkly touch to one’s makeup. Preeti Jain of Makeupmissile by Preeti Jain agrees and decodes a look that is resonant with this idea. “Not only do iridescent eyes look festive, they also stand out even when the lights are dim, which makes this my all-time favorite look for a cocktail party. I am particularly fond of the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette – Nude Beach, a palette of shimmering earthy tones that quite literally outshines a lot of others! While the colors of the products are very rich, what makes this truly amazing is that the glitter stays put on the lids and doesn’t fall onto the face.”
If there is one lip color that hits the sweet spot between confident and classy, it is deep plum. The juicy berry hue never fails to make a statement and deserves to be swiped across the lips before scintillating evening soirees. Sharing her take, Nandini Advani of Makeup by Nandini Advani, says, “This is such a flattering shade and works well with most Indian skintones. What is essential to ace this look, however, is a good lipstick that won’t dry out. The Lakmé Absolute Matte Ultimate Lip Color with Argan Oil in Delicious Plum has an intensely hydrating formula that won’t crack even hours later. The payoff is spectacular – just one stroke renders a beautiful jewel tone that doesn’t transfer onto other surfaces, making it a must-have for me.”
A product that one will always be able to fish out of even the most basic vanity kits is a black eyeliner. The quality that makes this a staple is its ability to lift one’s look and enhance the shape of their eyes with just a flick of the wrist. Nandini Advani of Makeup by Nandini Advani tells us about her experiments with the traditional eyeliner. “Black liner is a product that allows immense room for creativity. Every time I want to try a different style, I will invariably fall back on the Kareena Kapoor Khan Lakmé Absolute Eye Definer in Onyx. It is one of the inkiest, darkest and longest-lasting eyeliners. It creates clean lines that are essential for perfecting the cat-eye look. On this bride, I created a double wing using this product – its smooth formula ensured effortless application.”
