How To Do Makeup For Garba Night
Garba, as we all know, is a Gujarati folk dance celebrated in Navratri, a celebration lasting nine nights. Garba and dandiya have a long-term romance with Ghagra-choli. Mirror-work and bright colors go hand-in-hand with this look. And to match the gorgeous dresses, one should have a perfect looking makeup too.
So today we will be guiding you on how to do makeup for Garba night.
Apply face and eye primer- Gabra and dandiya means dancing your hearts out, youâ€™ll sweat a lot and so you need to have something that can make your makeup stay longer. Using a makeup primer is the best way to make your makeup stay put on for longer. Clean, tone and moisturize your face and apply primer all over, donâ€™t forget your neck.
Apply foundation- Use a foundation with NO SPF. SPF can make your face look white or flashed out in photography. Use a brush, or pat it gently instead of rubbing and blend well. (NOTE: I always prefer foundation prior to concealer because it allows me to see which areas on the face need more coverage.)
Conceal- Apply a concealer with no SPF under your eyes and on imperfections, like corners of lips, corners of nose, etc.
Eye makeup- Now this is where you can try experimenting with colors and types. You can go really dramatic with eye makeup. From muted golden, bronzes, browns and cranberry to blues, pinks and greens, choose whatever goes well with your outfit. If your garba dress has gold or silver work, you can choose eye shadow with golden or silver shimmers. But make sure you are comfortable with it.
If you donâ€™t want to apply eye shadow you can just accentuate them with loads of kohl and smudge a little.
When doing eye makeup, combine 2-3 eye shadows for the perfect look. Apply the lightest in the inner corner and on lids, medium color in the crease, and darkest color in the outer V. Apply bold strokes of eyeliner, curl your lashes, and put on mascara. You can put on fake lashes as well if you want.
Define your brows- Use your brow powder, pencils, gel or wax to groom your lashes. Comb using a clean mascara applicator.
Set your makeup with powder- Apply a little of a loose powder or pressed powder. Make sure you donâ€™t apply it too much. Just dab a bit.
Apply Blush- Apply on the apples of your cheeks and blend outwards. Donâ€™t overdo it, otherwise youâ€™ll end up looking like a clown.
Contouring and Highlighting- Contouring and highlighting create a sense of balance, adding definition to your makeup with color. Take a matte bronzer and apply it under your cheek bones to contour. And to bronze, simply put it anywhere the sun would naturally hit. Highlighting works with contouring. For example, when you contour your cheeks, you apply contour in the hallow area and highlight the apples. You also highlight the brow bone to open the eye and give depth to the crease area. Apply highlighter on the bridge of your nose as well.
Lips- Apply a nude lip liner/stick all over your lips. Define your lips with a lip liner. Make sure the color of the lip liner you are using for defining your lips is the same color as your lipstick. Dark lip liner and light colored lips is a strict NO. Finally apply lipstick. After a layer of lipstick, blot and reapply. If your eye makeup is dramatic, go for neutral lips.
Final touch-You can either use a setting spray to finish the look or just take a clean puff and buff away all cakey spots.
