Modern Indian dinner party makeup

I love this look very much. I think it's the sari, that deep maroon shade with old gold sequin artwork. I treasure this sari a lot. This is because firstly my Mum chose this sari for me when I visited Singapore after I moved to Sweden earlier this year. Secondly, I wore this for my Husband's Doctorate ceremony at a castle in Sweden. I was one of the three ladies who wore sari (traditional Indian costume) for a traditional Swedish event. It was an awesome evening. 

So I thought why not share it with you guys, so you can learn and perhaps use this makeup look for special functions and events someday.

  12. Hi uma... Thanks for the great videos and your site... I never wore makeup
    Till date ( am 30 now) coz I used to think makeup
    Is for pretty and fair ladies only... And I may end up
    Looking stupid... But after I saw your makeup I am into doing this and I love it....
    And my hubby also likes it a lot... Happily pays for the makeup ;)
    Thanks a ton!!!!! Love you!!!!
    My Mac shade is nc 50.... But I look lil orange or feel like I look lil dark...should I go for lighter shade...just a quick tip I need from you for that.

  13. Honestly speaking, I love this your makeup look a lot. Being amateur in makeup doesn't get any credibility but being good at almost everything begets that.For bridal makeup, party and natural look. Prefer, makeup lesson by makeup artist .

  14. Wow i can say that this is another great article as expected of this blog.Bookmarked this site.. Wedding DJ
