The lockdown enforced by the pandemic, over the last few months, has given a whole new spin to the big fat Indian wedding. Live streaming key wedding moments, fewer guests, face masks and sanitizers being staples along with keeping the wedding as short as possible are the new norms followed in lock down weddings.
Weddings have become an intimate, simple affair with toned-down attires being donned by both bride and groom and going as minimalistic cosmetics as possible.
If you’ve been invited to a lockdown wedding, you’re probably a bridesmaid or a close friend and need to look the part! With less being more this wedding season, you can opt for fresh-radiant skin and lightweight, easy-to-carry ethnic clothes that go with the post lockdown wedding season. Skip heavy contouring and elaborate base makeup to nail the lockdown wedding look. Read on for some tips on how to achieve a natural makeup look must try this:
Use base makeup hacks
Given the current restrictions on AC usage for weddings and the humidity, it’s so very important to have the right kind of base makeup before you step out in style! We suggest swapping your foundation makeup for a lightweight BB Cream to avoid melting the makeup in the heat. If you do have to use a foundation, swipe on some oil-controlling primer first and then apply a light layer of foundation.
Quickly put on some concealer and blend, blend, blend till you’re satisfied. Set your base makeup with some setting powder or translucent powder. This may take a minute or so extra, but do not skip this step. If you have some time to spare, bake your makeup too.
Follow steps for a natural contour
Use your bronzer to draw a figure of 3 on the edge of your face on both sides and blend well. If you wish to use a highlighter, apply well on your forehead, under your eyes, and on your chin.
Add some blush to the mix, but make sure you don’t go overboard with it, especially if you’re not at the wedding party itself. A great trick to ensure you get beautiful pictures during the wedding is to do your contouring in natural light. This will ensure not only your day, outdoors pictures look stunning, but also indoors ones under artificial lighting.

Do a subtle smokey eye
While there’s no limit to how heavy you can work your eye makeup regularly, lockdown weddings are a bit more somber, while still being grand. So don’t skip on your smokey eye makeup look, but keep it subtle and stunning instead of loud.
Start with a medium shade on the whole lid and draw with a darker shade on the outer corner. Blend well. On the crease, apply a light color of your preference and blend it with a medium shade.
For finishing touches, add a touch of highlighter to the inner corner of your eyes and the brow bones. Finish your eye makeup with winged eyeliner and some mascara for volume. Tip: use waterproof products to make your eye makeup stay.
Don’t let humidity, heat, or rain ruin your makeup. Use waterproof mascara and eye makeup that lasts all day!
Few hacks to make your lipstick stay longer
Well, if you plan to be busy with bridesmaid duties all day, we’d suggest you skip the lip gloss and go with a matte lipstick to make it stay. A bold red goes with pretty much every lock down weddings look, but you may want to match your lipstick with your outfit instead. To make your lips look fuller and more defined, don’t forget to define the outline with a lip liner well. Use a dash of highlighter on your lips to end the look, for a hint of shine.
Set your makeup with a makeup setting mist
Don’t skim on this step, no matter how much of a hurry you’re in! To make your base makeup and look stay in place for the whole day – and get the pictures looking stunning – use a setting mist to lock it all in! We suggest you use a matte finish setting spray to have you looking like a million bucks throughout the lock down wedding.
Tip: while using a blender to do your base makeup, or while using brushes to do your eye makeup, spray some setting mist on to ensure a more intense finish and budge-proof makeup throughout the lock down weddings day.
Match your dolled-up look with appropriate jewellery and voila! A perfect bridesmaid lock down weddings look is ready. Carry a small purse that can keep your makeup handy for touch-ups and you’ll have pictures and memories to cherish for a lifetime!
