the "I got ENGAGED!" fotd


Well-known member
And this is what I will be wearing to the engagement party. If you have any other ideas for a makeup look that would go well with this outfit, please feel free to give me some suggestions! I would love some advice. This is just a test run, I'm sure I'm going to change it up quite a bit. The lip color especially - in regular light in looks great, but with the flash, it doesn't seem to match!



And a picture of the outfit!

Congrats! That outfit is gorgeous and you look great! I second the idea of adding gold/orange colors into the eye look.

Congrats on the engagement!
With an awesome sari like that, I think you should go waayyyy more dramatic with the eye makeup. Otherwise the look as a whole might seem a bit off. And your lips don't have to match the blouse, unless you're absolutely set on it.

Idea #1:
Eyes - bronze on the lid, gold on the inner corner, a deep brown in the crease, with glamorous winged out black liner
Cheeks - peachy blush, gold highlight
Lips - nudy peach gloss, something on the light and sweet side
(Zerin has a great tutorial on her blog for something similar)

Idea #2: Think Penelope Cruz with matte red lips!
Eyes - Kohl-rimmed eyes, matte peach/coral/medium brown lids, matte brow highlight, super-lush lashes
Cheeks - matte red or terracotta
Lips - line and fill in the lips with your Nars liner, but instead of the gloss, swipe on a matte opaque red lipstick.

I personally like to do dramatic eyes with a nude lip (I have wonky lips...) when I dress up in saris and salwars. Batting my massive lashes makes me feel oh so Bollywood glam.

I think you look gorgeous as is and CONGRATULATIONS!! If you did want to try something else, I second the gold/orange on the eyes and adding a bit more drama.
