How To: Brides Makeup Essential
1. Cleansing the Face:
I learned that Indian brides love to use bold and bright colors for their marriage ceremonies. In order to achieve that long lasting look, our best advice is cleanse your face well and then pat it dry so as to ensure that there are no traces of dirt or oil on the face.
2. Base Preparation Tips:
Moisturizing your face is very important and it creates a smooth appearance and makes your skin tone event. Do not forget to moisturize and the best way to moisturize is to use your fingertips and rub well in a circular and gentle motion.
3. Face Fix Up Tips:
a. Use a primer 2 minutes after you apply moisturizer and blend it well as it helps to keep your concealer and foundation in place and holds it for long hours.
b. It is also equally important to use a concealer to cover spots or blemishes. You can brighten up your skin tone by using any of the color concealers like yellow or green to cover reddish blemishes on the skin.
c. Apply a foundation without SPF and blend it well with a makeup brush especially on to the underside of your eyes, and for the rest of your face, blend using a makeup sponge.
4. Bronzer Tips:
Take an angular brush and apply with strokes on to the sides of chin. Do the same on the sides of the forehead as well as on the two sides along the nose bone but not on the top. Suck your cheeks in and use some bronzer on to the top part of the contours near to the ear in light strokes.
5. Blush Tips:
Take some blush on a blush brush and pat excess off, let your cheeks in and apply in strokes moving from down to top near the ears.
6. Eye Shadow Tips:
Indian brides love peachy eye makeup shades, since they it goes well with their red, fuchsia or green heavy saris.
Paint up your eyelids with a peachy pink shade, and use some charcoal shadow on the exterior lid contours to give a ravishing Smokey effect. You can also use golden shadow instead of silver for the brow bones.
7. Eye Liner Tips:
It’s better to use plain and simple jet-black liner, preferably water proof. Draw a thick lining on top and a heavy lining with a strong kajal on the bottom making a sided wing lining. Don’t forget to use a volume enhancing mascara. Mascara’s with curled brushes work great for awesome curly lashes. Grab some false lashes to accentuate and pop up your eyes making them look more opened up and bright. Remember to give some trials before the wedding date just to make sure it wouldn’t consume more time on the wedding day.
8. Lipstick Tips:
If you have thin lip line then line your lips along the natural line with a color almost as your normal skin color. If you have plumper lips, then line the natural lip line with a darker shade. Wear a lipstick matching your dress. Go for maroon or dark reds for bigger and fuller lips and peachy pink or light pink color for thin lips.
Thin-lipped people can apply a lip plumper instead of a lip-gloss, whereas big-lipped people can use a simple lip-gloss.
