I have been trying to click MAC Fan Fare on me since the past month, but not once did I like the final outcome. Its one of the understated pinks that works as a perfect neutral pink for my kind of skintone that’s not rosy fair, but not really too yellow. Its somewhere in between and even though the color looks so very natural on me, it is difficult to bring out the beauty in it through the lenses.
This time just to make the shade of pink look even prettier I wanted to try fan fare with blue eyes and even before I knew, one thing led to another and I ended up doing this makeup that is perfect for a newly wed bride. 🙂 The thing is, last weekend I got to attend the bridal master class by Lakme Absolute with Manish Malholtra, Cory Walia and the gorgeous brides & *to dies for* outfits. Well it seems the idea was stuck in my head and I felt like donning my wedding saree , but of course sanity prevailed (a 10 kg saree is not a good idea to be in when you are dead tired from the last day’s dancing..oh btw, will come to it in some other post. Too many things happening right now. 😛 ) and I picked this light weight bright yellow cotton blended silk piece with red border, which is coincidentally one of those attires that is a part of wedding rituals in Orissa. 🙂 The bride has to be in a yellow saree with a red border for the initial rituals before the groom arrives. Please don’t ask what kind of Saree I am wearing here! I am really poor at this. . 🙁
So what started off as my determination to get the perfect FOTD for MAC Fanfare ended up as a makeup look for the newly weds from my own state “Orissa” (err…its “Odisha” now). Even though most brides in North India do not have to go for a Saree clad look, the initial days after marriage, we east Indians do need to be in Saree for those few days and this look is just perfect for one of those days when you never know who is going to drop in to have a look at the “bride”. You could just drape a jazzy piece and go out for an evening party as well. 🙂
Blue is definitely not one of those regular color to sport with a typical traditional look, but oh well the look was centered around MAC Fan Fare which took a back seat as I progressed with my face makeup. 😛 I am weird I know. You can always replace the blue with a gold, bronze or a green for a well put together look. O:)
Finally, I am actually quite happy to have done this one for people from my state. 😀 The red bangles (I think its called red sankha… *face palm*…I really am BAD at all this), the red bindi and sindoor (which I very conveniently forgot about while doing it. -_- Told you it was not a planned look..) are absolutely a must for the new Oriya bride (“Odiya Bahu”) and I loved being one! <3
