In a bid to prepare everything for the final day, we often forget the small things such as roka ceremony, mehendi function, sangeet etc. These may not be as significant as the wedding itself, but they are equally important. Mehendi also marks the beginning of festivities that will finally culminate into the final day.
Mehendi ceremonies are a great occasion to have fun, get drunk with your best girls, dance the evening away, and simply enjoy the whole process. These days, many brides have started making a big occasion out of their mehendi functions to make it groovy and fun for everyone. So now you are not only pressured to look your best on your wedding day but also on your mehendi. So make sure when you are looking for the Best Bridal Package in Jaipur, it includes your makeup, hairstyle, and everything else to make you look like a million bucks on your special day.
Since this is a more information function, you can choose to be whacky or an unconventional bride. With that said, here are some expert makeup tips and tricks that you can share with your makeup artist to get “the” look for your mehendi ceremony.

Gone are the days when a bride used a no-makeup look on her wedding day to look completely fresh and unsullied on her big day. But in the age of high-tech cameras, it is impossible for the bride to not wear makeup. However, does that mean you can go overboard with it? Perhaps not! May be, just for this occasion, let us try to keep things simple. Use soft makeup that matches your day time festivities and avoid applying too much of it. Keep it simple and elegant. Make sure that you discuss your look with your makeup artist beforehand so that they can equip themselves with relevant products. Your soft makeup look should be preceded by cleansing and moisturizing routine to remove all dead skin and give it a fresh look.
Some even massage essential oils into your clean face that will bring out the radiant glow and leave you smelling fresh all day.
Hydrate your skin
And we don’t mean that by just drinking plenty of water! Not many makeup professionals know this but applying makeup setting spray before you apply makeup rather than after will make your skin look soft and supple. It not only gives you a well hydrated look that you will need to shine on a sunny day but also keep your makeup together for long periods of time. Since mehendi celebrations can really stretch long after sunset, this will be a helpful trick to remain camera ready throughout the day.
Glam up your mehendi look with this highlighter trick
When your makeup artist is done applying your makeup base, as them to use liquid highlighter before using the foundation and then blend it using a beauty blender to make it look natural.
Stay minimal with the eyes
We all like to be dramatic when it comes to eye makeup. However, since mehendi function is already teeming with so many colors, you might want to keep your makeup light to complement all the beautiful hues around you rather than overwhelm them. Eye makeup can change your entire look so stick to neutral shades and use shades of brown to make your eyes more prominent. Apply just a hint of color to give your makeup pop and keep rest of the things simple.
Use the right shade of blush
This is very important because too much blush will make your face look caked. So the best way to choose right shade of blush is to use your skin tone as a reference point. If you are skin color is fair, then peach blush will look good. But if you have a dark skin tone, then stick with shades of pink and choose the one that complements you the most.
Top it up with pink lips
Since your mehendi function will likely be during the day, light colored makeup will make you look radiant. Don’t be tempted to wear a dark colored lipstick because that will completely throw your subtle look out of whack. Finish your natural makeup with a soft pink lipstick in peach or nude shades. It not only looks elegant but also less demanding.
Contour it right
Your entire makeup is incomplete unless you structure it using the right contouring techniques. To keep things soft and natural, use powder contour instead of cream based.
Since pre-wedding functions are meant to be informal, you should treat your makeup as such too. Don’t get too caught up in it and try to have fun with it.
