Every girl aspires to get the best bride makeup tipson her wedding day. It should make her look radiant, flawless, sexy and stunning without being OTT. To help you get closer to those expectations, we give you some beauty tips every bride-to-be should know for her big day. These will definitely help you look even better than you imagined!
1. Consider The Climate
In warmer weather, which is basically most parts of the year in India, you definitely want to invest in oil-free products. From the moisturizer and primer to the foundation for your bridal make-up – it’s safer to go oil-free. Also, make sure to have oil-blotting sheets handy for your functions.
2. Fight Tired Eyes
No matter how beautiful your bridal make-up is, it will not look good with weary eyes. Fight red or tired eyes after a late night of dancing on your sangeet with eye drops. Make sure to use a brand you’ve used before.
3. Play It Up For The Photos
One of the most crucial bridal makeup tips is to have a trial with your make-up artist in advance and take photos to see how you look. The camera and the bright lights might wash you out, which is why you should play up your makeup for great photos. This doesn’t mean you should go crazy, just a little bit more will make all the difference.
4. Primer Is A Must
An absolute pre-requisite for any kind of bridal make-up is a good primer. Not many of us use primer, though we should, but it’s necessary for a bride. After your moisturizer and before you put on your foundation, applying primer is a must to help your make-up go on more smoothly and last all day and all night.
5. Apply In Natural Light
Natural light is best for your make-up application. Make sure to set up an application table close to a window to help get the perfect look. Otherwise, use a super bright lamp - halogens are the best.
6. Natural, Blended Foundation
. An important make-up tip for brides is to never use your fingers to apply your base. Instead, apply it with a damp sponge or brush - your fingers can spread bacteria and also not give a great finish. For it to look natural, make sure to blend super well, especially around the eye area. Stippling your sponge (put the foundation as dots on your face) to blend instead of swiping the foundation will help give a natural, even finish.
7. Extend Beyond Your Face
An essential bridal make-up tip is to apply the foundation to your neck, ears and chest as well. When all those lights and camera flashes are on you, you’d be glad that you did.
8. Prep Your Lips
Apply a lip balm first to prevent your lips from getting dry and flaky under your lipstick. Then fill your lips with a lip pencil, this will help your colour stay in place for much longer. Remember, glossy lipsticks will fade more easily, but this way at least you’ll keep the colour on for longer.
