The COVID-19 outbreak has changed life as we know it, perhaps forever. For the past several months, all public gatherings, including weddings, were strictly prohibited in order to curb the spread of the virus. And although India is the fourth worst-affected country in the world, the government has relaxed some restrictions. If you want to get married anytime in the near future, say goodbye to the idea of the big fat India wedding (with good reason, of course)! Now, not more than a gathering of 50 people is allowed at weddings across the country, except in containment zones. But guess what? Intimate weddings can be just as much--if not more--fun than large weddings!
If you've decided to have a small wedding--congratulations, exciting times lie ahead! But don't be fooled, intimate weddings are just as hard to plan and there’s still a lot to do. And one of the toughest decisions a bride is faced with is choosing the right makeup artist. Not only do they have to be good, but they also have to understand exactly what YOU want on your big day. Well, here's a wild suggestion--have you ever considered doing on your own makeup? Yes, we're being serious. Do-it-yourself (DIY) bridal makeup might sound daunting but trust us, it’s much easier than you think. It all just comes down to practising the basic techniques and finding the right products.

Applying foundation perfectly is like creating a glowing canvas, and as daunting as it sounds, it’s actually pretty simple. With this easy tutorial, any bride will be able to create the perfect base for her bridal makeup.
