Traditional Makeup Look with a Twist

Bengalis are I guess the most versatile people especially when it comes to fashion. While their comfort zone and their love too are western dresses, they can’t even ignore traditional makeup look and dresses and on the other hand indo-western is a fashion trend for all of us now. We’re like expert in merging different styles in one look. We never get tired or most of the time never get failed in trying new styles, new dresses,new looks with mixture of different culture or of different taste. So, here I’m today to give you guys a new look with a bit of twist from different culture.

I am very much traditional by heart, and I go mad when it comes to saree. Actually I was getting ready for a family occasion, so while i was getting ready,thought to give a twist to my Traditional Makeup Look. And yeah, I hope I got successful. In this article I am putting in words the look, hope you guys would like it too. *fingers crossed*

The program was on day,so I had to keep in mind that the look should be mild as well as subtle. I chose a simple cotton saree to wear with a sleeveless blouse in contrast, both are collection of Maya Boutique. Before doing makeup obviously I cleared my skin properly then put on serum and sunscreen to protect my skin from sun.

Traditional Makeup Look


Face makeup: Firstly I put primer on my face,especially on my t-zone area. Then at least after 2-3 mint I covered my dark spots on my face with concealers. As it was a day function I put very tiny amount of foundation and blended it very well. Then contoured my face with contouring powder and highlighted my face with the concealer two shades lighter than my skin tone. I love intense contouring as you can see in the picture. Lastly set everything with translucent powder. I just skipped blusher and highlighter as it was a day makeup look.

Eye makeup: As promised I did a very subtle eye makeup look. Firstly I primed my eyes with concealer then I just defined my crease area with a brown eyeshadow and and put a thick winged-liner. I could not just make the eyeliner thin as I love it to be thick whatever the time is 😉 . And put the same brown eyeshadow on under eye area. My eyelashes are very thin,so I could not skip it too and so wore false eyelashes. Then put mascara on upper and lower eyelashes. Lastly slightly highlighted the inner corner of the eye. After doing the eye makeup I did my brow and yes I’m done 80%.

Lips : I primed my lips first,then lined and gave a shape to my lips with lipliner and put a matte soft red coloured lipstick. Lastly sprayed fixing spray all over my face to set everything.

Then comes the twisting part. I always prefer bindi in traditional attire. And this time also I did not miss it,rather drew a marathi bindi on my forehead (as I did not have the marathi bindi that time,so I had to draw it) . and believe me it gave me really a different look instantly even if I was wearing a bengali saree.

Hair updo: I just slightly curled my hair and did a normal bun and set it with a hair setting spray. And here I am totally done with the makeup look.

I was wearing a red and lime green saree and contrasted it with a blue coloured blouse, so I decided to wear a handmade blue coloured jewellry which would compliment my blouse and saree both.

I hope you liked the look and would definitely try this look in any occasion. And yeah, please do share your thoughts on any fusion look which you have tried or witnessed ever.
