Don’t Make These Two Mistakes For Your Sangeet Makeup Look : Expert Advise

Thanks to the movies Sangeet which was once women only affair has now become a full-fledged gala event in fact more people turnout in sangeet than the wedding itself.

Sangeet or as they will call it in south India “Sangeeth” now is a must have in the itinerary of every Indian wedding and why not it is so much fun. Everyone gets together and they dance! Yeah there is no singing now like the old days, it’s just dance!!

Usually this comes in a combo with a cocktail dinner. Choreographers are hired, Brides and grooms practice and wow there is so much of sweat!

Yes the sweat! It’s like sports day of your school. This is where we come in. You are having fun and photographers are clicking those memorable photos. When these photos finally come in you realize that they have gone horribly wrong. An event which was supposed to be fun has now turned into “Don’t show me those photos” affair.

For a makeup artist Sangeet makeup is the most challenging makeup because they have to make you look glamourous from head to toe and at the same time with all those Bollywood steps you are still supposed to look perfect.

The biggest challenge is the sweat and the hair which gets clumsy and frizzy in no time.

Two mistakes not to make in your Sangeet Makeup

1. Sweat Free Makeup or Water resistant Sangeet Makeup

This is very important and please do not save your money here. You have to discuss this with your makeup artist really well. As soon as you start sweating your normal makeup will first start shining and then it will start melting or oxidizing. When the makeup oxidizes it starts turning darker and everything becomes caky, patchy and just horrible.

I have seen many brides compromising with the sangeet makeup and going with a cheaper package thinking it’s just a dance party. To be honest when you will go through the wedding album over the years, your sangeet event will give you the biggest nostalgia.

Recommendation

I personally recommend you to go with Airbrush makeup. It will constrict your sweat glands so that you sweat less, it is water resistant which means your makeup will also not oxidize.

You should be going with makeup products which resist water starting from your liner to everything else possible. Yes it is couple of grand expensive than a normal makeup however how many times are you going get married anyways.

2. Hair styling – Keep it simple

To be honest , Getting an intricate hair styling is not in fashion anymore , More and more brides are going with simple and classy hair styles which doesn’t involve too much of accessories and hair sprays.

Talking about hair sprays! They are water soluble which simply means when they come in contact with water they will dissolve. Imagine you got an amazing and the most beautiful hairstyle on your sangeet event, carefully crafted to the perfection.

The DJ started “Dard e disco number” and you got dragged on the dance floor. Imagine this in slow motion now – Your super hold hair spray giving up and the hair knots coming out, Accessories falling on the dance floor and baby hair flying around all over your face. Your candid photographer capturing your every single move.

Hands in the air and clap clap clap !!

Wow! I am getting excited imagining this. However your hair is not. It has lost its shape and size, someone noticed that and tried fixing it. It’s too late!

Recommendation

So my dear brides to be, Leave that amazing hairstyle for your reception or wedding day. On a sangeet go casual, Leave your hair open with simple in or out curls and that is the most practical thing to do. There are many other recommended easy hairstyles that you can discuss with your makeup artist for the sangeet wedding event. The only advice is not to go with a complex hairstyle it will mess things up.

Before I wrap up this article, Make sure you get your lehnga draped and pinned nicely. Again keep it practical and light. You should be able to throw those amazing dance moves shoulder to shoulder along with your friends.

Remember this event is to enjoy and not to worry !
