Bridal Face Makeup

Bridal Face Makeup
  •         Cleanse your face with a natural facial cleanser.
  •         Now, use some ice before you start the steps of bridal makeup. It will help close the pores so that you may not sweat and your makeup stays longer.
  •         Use bronze powder to warm your skin.
  •         Now, prepare the base by using gel primer.
  •         Pick the gel-based foundation to make sure it does not run out.
  •         To balance the extra sheen on your face, apply some neutral and light dusting powder.
  •         Pick the golden-toned concealer to compliment your skin in the camera light. Avoid choosing pink-toned concealer.
  •         Contour your face in a way that the definition may not make your face look too sharp. A well-defined face with great cheekbones is the demand of wedding photographs.

Bridal Eye Makeup

  •         Go for threading to shape your brows at least 2 days before your wedding day.
  •         Use gel or brow powder to fill in your eyebrows. Don’t give a very sharp shape to your brows. The eyebrows look should be soft for an Indian bride.
  •         Curl your lashes and use eyelash extensions to catch maximum attention to your eyes.
  •         Use waterproof mascara and don’t overdo it. Make sure to use mascara in balance so that there may be no clumps on your eyelashes.
  •         When using eyeliner to define your eyes, prefer gel-based and waterproof formula as it works better and lasts longer.

Bridal Lip Makeup

  •         Moisturize your lips with lip balm. Wipe out the extra.
  •         Define your lips with a lip liner.
  •         Fill in with the same liner before using your bridal lipstick.
  •         Now, paint your lips with lipstick. Use warm shades of red lipstick.
  •         Your lip liner should be the closest match of the lipstick.

Bridal Hairstyle

Bridal Hairstyle
  •         A perfect bridal hairstyle session starts with getting a regular hair spa 2-3 months before the wedding.
  •         Follow your regular hair care routine of shampooing and conditioning.
  •         Choose your favourite bridal bun, braid or other hairstyles you like and get it done by the hair expert.
  •         Accessorize your hairdo with Gajara, bejewelled clips and other hair accessories. But don’t burden your hair with too many accessories as it may loosen your bridal hairstyle.
  •         Don’t opt for a down hairstyle without much styling. It’s your big day, not a small event to go minimalistic hairstyle.
