Deepica Mutyala isn’t new around these parts. You may recognize her from that insane red lipstick video that went viral earlier this year or from the beauty advice she regularly doles out on social media. We love how she makes beauty approachable with a slew of tips and tricks to make our lives just a bit easier, and of course, way prettier. With our favorite (wedding) season in full swing, we’re already looking for fresh inspiration because how many black smokey eyes can a gal do, right? So how pumped were we when we found out our favorite beauty guru was filming an Indian Wedding Makeup Tutorial? Answer: Very. We got the full low down PLUS a few extra tips that didn’t make it in the video below.
What: Indian Wedding Makeup Tutorial
Where: Jami Saunders studio in FIDI
Extra Makeup Tips from Deepica:
1) Contouring: If you don’t have dedicated contour products at home, try using your bronzer or a foundation that’s a shade or two darker than your skin tone which gives you the same effect.
2) Concealer: Go heavier than you normally would for a wedding. By picking a concealer that’s a shade lighter than your foundation, you get a natural illumination on your skin, but it’s super important not to go TOO light either. That’s when you see chalkiness!
3) Hair: I did a twist on a traditional braid for my look. My favorite thing to do for weddings is take traditional looks and give it a modern twist. That applies for hair too!
4) Highlighter: Glowing skin is a must for desi weddings! If you don’t have a dedicated highlighter at home, use a shimmer pale eyeshadow and apply it to the parts of your face you want to pop. For me, that’s the bow of my lip, under the brows, corners of the eyes, bridge of the nose, and the bone under your eye.
Here’s the final look! So gorgeous, right? Check out the full video for the complete tutorial. Thanks, Deeps! We can’t wait to get our glam on.
