  • Eye makeup is the most important aspect. Choose an eye shadow that matches your dress color or a golden and smokey black combination which suits almost any of the colors. Start with the golden color first from the inside and move towards the outside. Apply another coat of the same shade from the middle of eyelid towards the corner and blend well. 


  • Use the black eye shadow now to drag a line from the outer corner of the linline towards the lid and blend it well to get a smokey effect. 


  • Apply a thin line of waterproof kajal on the waterline. 


  • Apply a liner with a thinner line from the inner corner of your eyes towards the outer corner in a thicker line and connect it with the black shadow. 


  • It’s now time for a volumizing and curling mascara which gives your eyelashes look longer and thicker. Don’t forget to apply mascara on the lower lashes also. 


Step 10: How to highlight your eyebrows


Use an eyebrow pencil to have your eyebrows well-shaped without making it much dark which would result in looking false. 


Remove any strays and then fill in your eyebrows, using a brow brush to shape them perfectly. 


Step 11: How to do the lip makeup


Now its time for the lips to be done. Start with applying a thin layer of foundation on the lips as it will hold the color for long. Apply a lip liner of the same shade of your chosen lipstick to shape up your lips, fill it in with your lipstick. Apply another coat to make the color last longer. Dabbing some foundation to the middle of your lower lip will give you a fuller shape. Opt for lighter shade if you have big lips and dark shade if you have thin lips. 


Step 12: (For Bengali brides)


For a Bengali bride, the forehead decoration is a must-have. It holds a separate attraction among young brides. Since it is such an important aspect and holds great importance it is always suggested to get it done by any professional or any family member to help out as doing it yourself could be risky.
