Mrunmayee Asks :

Hi Girls,

I have just got my reception saree. It’s a hot pink Benarasi with intricate pale gold embroidery.

Please take a good look at it and give me some advice for the makeup.

The saree has a skirt border, meaning it has a large row of embroidery at the bottom and very small and cute “butti” or dots throughout.

Closer look at the Skirt border:

The pallu:

As the colour is quite bright, I really don’t want hot pink lipstick or hot pink eye shadow. It would be too much na?

I am open to all suggestions.

Also if you can suggest a hairstyle to go with the look, it would be great. I have round face (What am I talking about, you have seen me!!!), and I look awful in straight, sleek hair.

  4. Lovely awesome saree 🙂 why don’t you go for soft curls.? Or the wavy kind like shilpa shetty’s 🙂 :woot:

  5. you can create a 3d effect on your eyes….
    first apply a light pinkish golden e/s on your inner corner (1/4) area…then a golden color on the middle part..on the outer corner use a dark brown e/s & on the crease put a dark pink e/s & blend well…then apply a silver shadow on the brow bone………..
    a peachy pink blush on your cheeks with a proper bronzer which suits ur skin tone….
    use a light shade lipstick..maybe some peachy pink n add clear gloss on top of it…so that the color doesnt look dark………..
    dont forget to use black kohl…black eyeliner..n mascara……! :victory: :jiggy1:

  6. Mrun… so many pics of tht gorgeous saree.. & putting up lines like ‘have closer look at the pallu n border’ :spank: .. flaunting as well as maiking pple ‘J’.. :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:
    its ur marriage go for dark makeup, matching lippi or e/s or blush, dont forget to wear a large nice matching bindi too.. it’ll suit ur round face.. :beauty: :beauty: :beauty: :beauty:

  9. Mrun………I loved your Banarasi saree… wud look gorgeous on you :-*
    I loved the pallu so much :inlove: :inlove: :inlove:
    Ok for suggestion you are yourself an expert…but when it comes to self it becomes confusing. :))
    This is from my point of view. I loved Farha’s suggestion. But a little addition. I would definitely use some gold e/s on lids. And a little soft pink too. Winged liner like Deepika and falsies or oodles of mascara. Something like this

    Go with nice highlighters on cheeks and dont forget to contour your cheeks. I will suggest a soft plum blush and a highlighter with soft gold shimmer.
    Since eye make-up is not bold I think you should really highlight your lips….errr….not that bright neony hot pink but a subtle pink and gold shimmer on centre on the lips. :))
    For hairstyle Deepika is having a nice hair-do. Don’t leave your hair open as it would be very humid and hot and managing your hair will be a problem. An up-do is better. I am really favoring Deepika’s up-do added with fresh flowers on one side of the bun. :yes:

    I hope this was a little help. O:)
    And congrats once again!! :yahoo: :yahoo:

      1. Thanks a lot Jini baby!!!!

        I lovved both the looks.. The eye makep is soo soft and gorgeous!!!!

        I plan to tease the crown a bit to get add volume.. I’ll try these out and show you guys!!! :yahoo: :yahoo:

    1. Wow!!! Tarry this is awessome!!! I would def try it out!!!

      So many awessome suggestions!!! :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot:

  10. Hi Mrun…Congratulations!! That’s really a beautiful saree, I loved the colour. You are right – don’t go in for wearing a matching bright pink lipstick – I would suggest that you line your lips using a dark pink lip liner and then wear a lipstick slightly on the light fuchsia side – check out some shades at L’oreal….I like ‘Burning Rose’…I think it would bright enough to show up in photos but it’s at the same time, not too shocking or bright. For the eyes, as suggested above by the others, do a light pink eyeshadow look and add some gold eyeshadow too to brighten the eyes. Use a peachy blush…check out some nice peachy blushes at Bourjois (they contain shimmer) and use a face highlighter (either powder or liquid) on the high points of your cheekbones to add that extra glow. All the best.

    1. That’s really fr8 advice Sabrina!!!! Waise i take inspiration for bright lips from you!!!!!

      But I don’t want too much going on my face… And it’s painfully difficult for me to go subtle on eye makeup!!! :silly: :silly: :silly: me!!

    1. I’ll do this for the wedding day!!! It would look better in the day time!!! :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: Tarry!!!

    1. Hee hee!!! I saw this earlier!!! But i don’t have a good pink shadow.. i have the Faces sparkle dust.. But it fades!!!

    1. Can’t find it!!!! The website is saying… “You did something wrong.” :((

      Each time I am scared by a different reason!!! :yelo: :yelo: :yelo:

  11. Super lovely saree mrun! Go for a side parted, backcombed style for the front. If you can do a classic french knot, go for it! Add a large flower (Pink Orchid!) or 2-3 smaller ones to the twist. I think it’ll make a very classy style that will look good even when you show the pics to your grandkids! Make sure there are soft tendrils framing your face on either side…

    here are 2 links that can help you

    1. Thanks Anks!!!! I’ll try these out.. Waise I like backcombed big hair on the crown too!!! :thanks: :thanks: :thanks:

  12. Mrun, congrats on the wedding :)) I am new to makeup and hence don’t know much about it. But considering what I have seen from your tutes, I am sure you’ll do an awesome job 🙂

    1. Awww.. Thanks Noopur!!!

      I am personally much more inclined towards silk than Chiffons or similar fabrics…

      A lot of people say that big and heavy women should go for lighter fabrics and should leave silks alone… But I find that you need a certain fullness and curves to carry off silks!!! I toh totally love all types of silks and i wear them all the time!!

      Thanks for your wishes Sweetie!! :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi:

  15. Thanks a lot ALL beauties for the Awessome suggestions!!! You all made my day!!! Er.. Night!!!

  16. Hi Mrunmayee,

    I followed a lot of your tutorials , and am obviously much the unknown reader of this blog. I must say I loved your makeup looks, and you seem the fun fearless female when it comes to make up.

    I love your saree, and even more love the fact that it is so traditional, this is a look you can try I think it is pure awesome. And perfect with bright sarees that constitute bridal trousseau. Just ensure you have one big nosering, or stud, or statement earrings. Basically this look is perfect to let your clothes and jewellery take centre stage.

    as for hair try something which is all tied up with a few wisps of hair framing ur face. and if possible get the stylist to give u a bun that looks like it is loosely tied (but obviously is actually nice and tight with numerous pins holding it in place, i should know , it took me half an hour to undo my hair) The loosely tied bun takes the focus to your jewellery and saree , making you look effortless at the same time a little romantic. Also very flattering for round faces , like mine. :yes: all the best.. :waytogo: :bravo: and couldnt help freaking you out.. so yes the time is running out and you have tonnes of things to get done.. :waiting:

    1. Thanks a lot Supriya… You shared some awesome ideas!!! And also thank you for the wonderful comments!!

      I really liked the makeup-Blushing bride types!!!!

      And how could you have stayed hidden with so much to share!!!! We want more such awesome ideas!! Do stick around.. :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

      1. thanks a lot .. the main jhol with bridal looks is how much is too much and how much is too little. like doing a nude , or soft pink/ brown lip sounds great to me, but my mom and all other relatives will tell me to layer on the colour..

        ne ways i so enjoy giving ideas.. btw i totally loved ur pink/purple eyeshadow tutorial

  17. Congrats mrun :-* me very happy for you 🙂 i dont know what to suggest you 😛 me learning from you .. so just wishing you all the very best for your wedding and reception 😀 yay !! :yahoo:
