Asian culture is all big on bling, big on colour and big on music. For an Indian bride, the sangeet marks the start of the main wedding celebrations. It’s a glitzy, glamorous evening of music and dancing.¬†Opting for a lengha for your sangeet allows freedom in movement so you can get down and get in on the action.

Lengha's are perfect for those who want to dance the night away on their Sangeet

Hair & Make-up look
My go-to foundation these days for the whole range of skintones (fair to ebony) have been my 2 Kryolan palettes. The shades blend effortlessly to enable make-up artists to mix the perfect shade for each model or client, and the shade range is extensive. I prefer to thin out the highly pigmented cream foundation with a little mixing fluid/ cream and applying with a cosmetic wedge for a nice even skintone that doesn’t look caked on.

A soft cream blush over the outer cheekbones, set with a soft rosy pink powder blush ensures that you can fake a natural flush for longer. Layering the cream and powder cheek products in the same way you layer the foundation and powder, all helps set the cream and make the colour more durable. So even after a big old sangeet song & dance session you’ll still look photo-ready.

A bright pink lip keeps the look fun but striking, without being too matchy matchy with the outfit. I’ve avoided using green on the eyes or anywhere else on the face (bindi/ eyeliner) to prevent an over-matched clothes to make-up look. I like to pick one colour form the outfit and work with it somewhere but not sticking rigidly to the exact shade.
