Taylor Swift- bridesmaidThe Bestie Look
It is your best friend’s wedding, you don’t want to overshine her, but you don’t want to look any lesser. Take cues from Taylor Swift. Despite her being the bigger star, her sophisticated look sure caught many eyes. Go for a more subtle base, but don’t forget to highlight your prominent features.

Bring warmth to your face by adding a blush, and not just any blush, use the Maybelline’s Dream Touch Blush 05 Mauve to get a flawless glow. The look is incomplete without a lipstick. If you want your lips to do all the talking for you then ensure you apply Flaming Fuchsia M104 from Maybelline’s Color Show Matte Lipstick range.

Cathrine, Kate

The Modest Chic Look
If you are older than the bride, don’t let that stop you from dressing up! Let’s take cues from Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge for this look. Donning a long pink gown and a fascinator, the Duchess struck a more demure look. Her makeup was understated yet noticeable. To achieve this look, keep a neutral base. Sculpt your face with Maybelline’s Color Show Peach Sweetie Blush. Use the brands Diamonds Rose Quartz Pink eye palette and draw attention to those lovely eyes. Complete the look by applying Maybelline Color Show Matte Lipstick in Warm Caramel 315.

Katrina Kaif, bridesmaidThe Demure Diva Look
Are you a diva and still want to look like one at your best friend’s wedding, then take inspiration from Katrina Kaif. Dressed in a lovely peach gown, the Bollywood actress was in full form.  It makeup was not heavy, but very light and dewy. To get the same look, use a light mousse foundation instead of a cream based one. The Maybelline’s Dream Matte Mousse Foundation in the shade Sandy Beige is just the right one – it’s not too heavy and leaves a very dewy finish. Apply the Color Sensational Lip Gradation Lipstick in the shade Pink 002 and finish off the look with some blush on your check! Use the Maybelline Color Show Creamy Cinnamon Blush onto the apples of your cheeks & voila your diva look is ready!

If it is an outdoor wedding, you would want your makeup to last a lot longer, so use Maybelline’s Dream Satin Skin Liquid Foundation Nude B5. Contour your face and do up your eyes using the brands Nudes Palette. Because it is a day look – stick to neutrals.
