Marathi Makeup

India is a country of many religions and cultures and every culture has their own particular way of celebrating their festivities, events and even wedding ceremonies. Indian weddings in all the cultures are undoubtedly lavish and colorful events. All Indian weddings have various religious traditions and different ways of celebrating wedding ceremonies, you can also see different cultures have their own unique dressing styles for their wedding ceremonies and one such unique bride is a ‘Maharashtrian Bride’. A Marathi Brides uniqueness lies in her elegant dressing and makeup. A typical Maharashtrian bride will adorn herself with a beautiful ‘Nauvaree saree’, a ‘crescent - moon bindi’ along with ‘Mudavalya’ on the forehead and a traditional ‘Nath’ in her nose and a site of such a beauty is a vision to behold. Following are few important things that you must consider if you want to adorn Maharashtrian bridal look for your wedding:

  • A Maharashtrian bridal makeup uses soft color tones of base products in makeup. The look of a Maharashtrian bride is warm and fresh.
  • The ‘Nath ’ and ‘Crescent – moon Bindi’ are the hero of the Maharashtrian bride makeup. The makeup is done in the manner that will make and hold the ‘Nath’ and ‘Crescent – moon Bindi’ as the hero so usually a strict no to dramatic eye makeup.
  • Eye makeup is done to accentuate the eyes and to show the natural beauty of the eyes so well defined eye makeup with proper use of ‘kajal’ or ‘kohl’ is done.
  • For bride – to – be who have a fair skin tone one important point that you must remember is that not to overdo the makeup. The main motive of a Maharashtrian bridal makeup is to do minimal makeup and maintain the natural skin tone.
  • A typical Maharashtrian Bride’s hairstyle will include traditional buns with center partition. If you choose to go with modern hairstyles and hair updo’s then it is recommended not to overdo lip makeup and eye makeup.

Thus above are the things that are considered while doing a classic Maharashtrian bridal makeup. Let us now see a step – by – step guide to getting a perfect Marathi makeup for a bride–to–be for her wedding:

  • Cleansing: Before starting the makeup it is important to get rid of all the impurities of the skin. Apply a good cleansing lotion to remove all the dirt off the skin. Cleaning the face with scrub and a cleansing agent will help in opening up of pores and removing excess oil off the skin. A clean skin is very important for a good makeup.
  • Moisturize: A hydrated skin is very important for a good makeup as it helps the makeup to lasts longer. So after cleansing, the skin apply moisturizer to the skin and sufficiently moisturize it for an even and flawless look of the makeup.
  • Base: For creating a base for makeup you can choose using a primer else use of tinted moisturizer can also be done. Tinted moisturizer is skin colored moisturizer that helps in creating a matt finished base for the makeup. A primer or a tinted moisturizer helps in covering tiny wrinkles, fine lines in and around the areas of eyes, forehead, and lips.
  • Concealer: A concealer is your most important beauty product as it helps to hide all the imperfections of your skin. A concealer can best be used to hide black spots, red spots, blemishes, acne, dark circles, skin breakouts etc. kindly note avoid caking up or overusing concealer as they contain light reflecting components also the Marathi makeup focuses on natural look so too much use of concealer can make the skin look oily.
  • Foundation: Foundation is the best option to avoid overuse of concealer. Use of foundation can be done on areas where you need extra coverage to hide the imperfections of the skin. Use of oil-free foundation is recommended for a natural flawless look of the makeup.
  • Blend: While creating a base of the makeup you must focus entirely on blending the products in the skin to give a very even finish to the makeup. You have to blend, all the products like the moisturizer, primer, concealer, and foundation, till all the products are absorbed in the skin.
  • Compact: Use of a compact powder can help in retention of the makeup on the brides face for a longer duration. Maharashtrian wedding ceremonies and rituals continue for a long time so it is very important that the makeup stays till the end of all the rituals. A compact powder comes to rescue as it helps to soak the excess oil, give a fresh look to the face by giving a finishing look to the makeup applied.
  • Eye makeup: Eye makeup must be done by keeping in mind the colors of the saree of the bride. As a Maharashtrian bride usually chooses bright colors for her wedding saree. So an eye makeup must be done keeping in mind the colors of the saree and the jewellery to be adorned by the bride. An eye makeup complimenting heavy gold ornaments is recommended so shadows of gold or copper either in shimmery or metallic finish can be used for accentuating the beauty of the eyes. If you are choosing more than one color then remember to blend the colors of the eyeshadow seamlessly to maintain the integrity of the Marathi wedding makeup. Use eye liner, kajal or kohl for defining and highlighting the eyes. It is recommended to use waterproof eye makeup products. An eye makeup must blend with rest of the facial makeup so if there are certain inconsistencies then clean the makeup using a fluffy brush.
  • Blush: Maharashtrian bridal makeup showcases natural skin tone of the bride so while applying blush use shades that are close to the skin tone of the bride. Use of copper or gold shades can be done for a fairer skin tone and use of pink or pale orange can be used for warmer skin tone.
  • Lip Makeup: Finish off the Maharashtrian bridal look by applying stunning lip color. Choose a lip color by keeping in mind the colors of saree.
  • Accessorize: Maharashtrian Bridal Makeup is not complete without accessorizing it with traditional jewellery like ‘Nath’, ‘Thooshi’ and many other authentic traditional ornaments. Also, the bride’s makeup is incomplete without ‘Crescent – moon bindi’ and ‘Mundavali’.

Thus in this manner, a Marathi makeup can be done to get a gorgeous Maharashtrian bridal look and make the guests, friends, family and especially the groom fall in love with you.
