The aim of your wedding makeup is to look your natural best! The best would be that, when you run to your albums after a couple of years, you would still look mesmerizing.
Highlight your best features and hide the flaws. Plus make sure to make your makeup last the whole day, even after all hugging, crying and eating. Everything must look fresh and not caked up, even at the end of the day. Hence you need to get the best of products and the proper shades to get that perfect look.
Here is a guide on Indian Bridal Makeup and ways on how you can achieve this. Make sure you follow these basic steps for best results.
The main idea of perfect bridal makeup look is to accentuate the best features at the same time keep the overall look simple yet gorgeous. As it is, Indian Brides are loaded with jewelry and heavy dresses, hence it is best to keep the makeup neutral.
2. Explain your needs to the makeup artist:
If you are hiring a makeup artist, make sure you explain what you need clearly! Explaining things in advance will help you get the look you want. Come on, a bride has the right to make all the demands! If the makeup artist is new then, it is always recommended to get a trial session before your wedding day.
3. A trial photo session with the makeup:
A trial photo session with the final makeup is always recommended. The reason is, some foundations and powders tend to look brighter or lighter in pictures as they reflect light in a different way. Hence taking pictures with flash prior to the wedding can give you an exact idea of how the final bridal makeup looks on camera. It is better to be prepared in advance, over the last minute bad picture jitters.
4. Select the perfect shade of foundation:
Most brides in India tend to go wrong with the foundations. Hence, make sure to blend the foundation on your neck region to check, and also check whether it matches your skin perfectly or not. Always remember to apply foundation on your neck too or else your face will look different from the rest of your body.
5. Get skin treatments done in advance:
Brides must always get their beauty treatments, such as facials and waxing done well in advance before the wedding day. At times these treatments irritate your skin and leads to outbreaks and makeup can very well aggravate these issues.
And I am sure; no one would like to get such unwanted visitors to ruin their special day. The same thing holds true for eyebrows as well. Get them plucked and shaped one or two days before your D Day. If you wait to pluck them on the same day, they may look red and swollen, and also could give you rashes, making you feel itchy, before make up application. This might totally spoil all your overall effort to look good.
6. Wear Contact lenses before makeup:
If you are a person who wears contacts, make sure to wear them before makeup application. Because there are favorable chances of your eyes watering. This can possibly ruin the effort you took to apply the right makeup.
7. Ward of stress Hormones:
Last but not the least you need to relax and shun off all the stress. I know it’s difficult to practice but stress can spoil your skin making it look worse.
I remember getting boils on my face before my wedding and engagement. So I am sharing my personal experience with you all. Relax as much as you can and drink plenty of water and eat lots and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables to get glowing and beautiful skin for your “Big Day”
