Indian bridal makeup is full of drama, which captivates her audiences eye, especially the husband to be. The makeup adds an hypnotic glow which lets her be center of attention and stand out on her big day.
The magnetism from the indian bridal eye make up has a secret which develops through the application process. The heavy contouring and lips are seductive and add countless amounts of drama. The traditional form of makeup application creates nothing less than radiance, which is needed as a wedding is an occasion which calls for celebration with many people coming together capturing pictures that last for lifetimes recalling memories.
A blushing bride is the star of the occasion and she wishes to look her best on this amazing day. Some brides opt for a subtle and minimalist style whilst others like the full of glamour, both of which, wish to look like the models in the magazines. Even choosing tinted moisturizer with lighter tones for a radiant look, with a soft lip colour, avoiding darkening the eyes with heavy eyeliner and numerous coats of mascara can be a style worthy of lots of compliments. A classic look will always shine in any era, as trends tend to quickly look outdated in photographs.
Using bronzing powder helps to add warmth to your skin tone, choose a natural bristled brush to lightly apply colour to the areas of your face where the sun would naturally hit. These are usually the forehead, bridge of the nose, chin and cheeks. Don’t forget to add the the color bone if it is also exposed. Give your foundation a chance to stay put by using a primer before your foundation application and not forgetting to dust over with a translucent or HD powder to reduce the appearance of shine. Your photographer will thank you for it, especially if you choose yellow based foundations and concealers, this will eliminate the grey/ghost bride in the images and video.
For all brides-to-be give your face five days off before the big day get all facials and waxing done in advance for your skin to refresh and calm down. Always be prepared and avoid any unwanted makeup surprises by booking a trial with your chosen makeup artist at least 4 weeks in advance of the big day. Try not to over camouflage or over correct under eye bags/circles, this could be the only thing seen in images if the concealer is too light same with pink based powder foundations for touch ups during the day, which can darken on the face and end up giving the dirty look as the evening goes on. Heavy pressed powder to set the foundation can be great but when used excessively it can leave your skin with the appearance of looking lifeless and sometimes chalky. Choose an indian bridal makeup and hairdo that will make you feel comfortable and not upstage you or your dress.
As eyes are important to Indian bridal makeup dont forget the brows, which frame your eyes. Use a brow pencil or gel in a colour one shade lighter than the natural hair. Fill in any gaps and then set the brows by using brow gel and a little brow powder. Neural tones to contour and highlight your eyes will enhance them, also sticking to classic black eyeliner. Curl your lashes and use a lengthening waterproof mascara under neath your lashes, at least it wont run even if you do shed a few tears of joy during your day.
Sometimes we can tend to go over the top with mascara, one thing to avoid is clumpy lashes, you definitely don’t want clumpy lashes when your groom looks deep in to your eyes. Its also a good idea to try out false lashes a few times before your big day, just so you’re prepared and know how they will look and feel.
In indian bridal makeup, being a blushing bride is necessary and adds charm. Choose a warm flattering pinky peach or rose blusher and apply to the apples of cheek whilst blending back and up towards the hairline. Depending on your skin type choose a blusher that will compliment you and your outfit, cream blushers are great for dry skin as it helps to get that dewy natural glow as powder blushes help to matt oily skin. When it comes to lips using a lipbrush helps to blend the colour perfectly allowing you to mix colours and not leave any gaps. A pretty pout is complimented with a lip pencil which follows the natural line of your lips, this makes it easier to define your lips. Choose a colour to either compliment your outfit or to tone down the makeup style.
Choosing a lipstick which is too neutral or frosted can give the appearance of looking washed out, pale and tired. Typically in indian bridal makeup some like dark lip liner look but in reality in can be harsh and unnatural, I would personally avoid this. And last of all do not forget to wear blusher as flash photography can leave you looking washed out in pictures, which you will cherish and look at in many years to come.
