Bridal Makeup


A bride must be look beautiful and not overdone. She's the star and has to look like a dream, her face translucent, soft and glowing. .Never forget that a compact powder and lipstick must always be carried by a relative for a quick touch up


A day before the wedding the palm and feet of the bride are decorated with "henna", in the mehandi ceremony. A Shadi Hall decorated with flowers is setup at the place of wedding. On the wedding day the bride and groom are anointed with turmeric in their respective homes.


Your skin-type is the most important thing that you have to take into account when choosing your make up. If you have normal to dry skin type, you need to wear cream based make up, and if you have oily or sensitive skin then you have to choose powder based make up.


Season also plays an important role in the selection of the make up to be used. In summer, you need to minimize your make up, as every thing tends to wash off as soon as is it is on the skin. In winter, though, you can choose to a heavier look for your face to match the heavy fabrics and dark colors of your dress.


It is necessary to decorate hands in the morning on the wedding day. Make nails soft by dipping them in lukewarm water mixed with soap and soda bicarb. Rub the nails with a filler to give them the desired shape. The dead skin on the nails can be pushed back with a nail-pusher or an orange stick, after applying olive oil on that part. Cut off the dead skin with scissors. Massage the arms with a cream. Wash hands with luke�warm water and apply hand lotion so that they get a soft and smooth look. Polish nails with nail polish. Decorate your hands with mehandi just one day prior to the wedding day. Now, scrub the feet and apply 'alta' or mahawar. One can visit a parlour for 'manicure' and 'pedicure' one day prior to wedding, if possible.


Apply Bridal Mekeup


First wash your face properly than use a light moisturizer to smoothen your skin. Select a concealer of a lighter color shadow areas of the face around the eyes and nose. Then gently apply and blend it all over the face and under the neck an oil free foundation, which will last throughout a long and hot day. Try and choose a color tone, which is slightly lighter than your skin tone but never for white. Matte foundation is best suited for Indian skin tone. It gives a natural effect. To get rid of blemishes touch up your face with a concealer. Apply translucent powder and spread evenly all over the face to get that matte effect. Proper make up should be applied to the forehead, nose and chin. The eye make up is very important so proper care should be taken for eye make-up. Use a brown tone eye shadow for softness and white makeup to lift. Use a thin line of white eyeliner on the eyelid, to highlight the eyes. Finish the line with black eyeliner and add a little black eye shadow under the eye. To highlight your lashes use black mascara. To have a detailed look brush eyebrows and apply a brown eyebrow pencil. Use a good quality lipstick, which will last. The color of your lipstick should match your dress.
