Believe it or not, most women have dreamed of her wedding day since their childhood. After immense planning and re-planning, the day finally comes with a feeling of excitement and nervousness. Among other important things, the bridal makeup is a very important aspect for the bride. Here are the steps to do your Indian bridal makeup yourself.
Remember, like other bridal preparations, your bridal makeup preparation also needs to begin a few days ago. Also, avoid experimenting with products during this time as it may result in unexpected issues. Use only those products which you’re comfortable and confident in.
Use a face pack, scrubber and face mask to have your skin clear. Go for facial only if you’re habituated to it.
Coming to the wedding day…
Clean your face and neck with a cleanser or a makeup remover. Wash your face with chilled water and pat dry. Apply a light moisturizer.
Apply a thin layer of primer. Primer gives you an even skin tone, smoothens it and helps the makeup last long.
Concealer is used to hide the dark circles, blemishes, pimples, tattoos or dark spots. Apply a creamy concealer on the area under the eye to hide your dark circles and prepare the base makeup around the eyes.
After concealing, it’s time to prepare the base for your makeup. Make sure your base matches your skin tone. Use an SPF free waterproof and sweatproof easily blendable foundation. An SPF foundation would reflect light and the photos won’t come out good. Apply foundation on your face, neck, jawline, and tap evenly till it blends properly.
Use a compact powder to help the foundation set properly.
Get your bronzer, apply it on your cheekbone, upper forehead, nose sides, chin, and cheek lines. Take out your contouring brush, gently tap the brush over an area of the contour color and merge it with the base color.
Apply a highlighter in the middle of your forehead, upper portion of your nose, under-eye area, jawline and under your lips. Use a bronzer for contouring the remaining areas.
Choose a blush matching your skin tone and how deep you want your lip color to be. Avoid he dark eyes, dark blush and dark lips combination. Opt for a light dusty blush to highlight your cheekbones.
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.
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.
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.
