Step 1 –
The most basic step before you start with your makeup is hydrating your face and neck properly. Cleanse the skin with a mild, soap free cleanser. After this, apply a toner and wait for 5-10 minutes before going for the next step. Use a makeup primer on the skin to avoid the risk of makeup melt down. A quality makeup primer helps the makeup stay better and for a longer duration of time. It also gives a smoother base for your foundation and concealer to blend perfectly.
Step 2 –
Use a foundation that is suitable for your skin colour and texture, preferably without SPF as it lasts longer and apply it with a sponge. The shade of foundation can be tested on forehead or jawline. Set it with a compact powder of similar shade.
Step 3 –
The next step is to hide your dark circles and blemishes using a concealer in a tone that suits your skin. Try to keep the shade of concealer very close to that of the foundation. Pat the concealer onto the skin covering all the problem areas.
Step 4 –
Eye makeup is the most important part of any Bridal makeup as it makes you stand out from the rest in the crowd. Tame your brows using a clean mascara wand and then fill them in a nice defined arch. Eye shadows with a metallic sheen look great on Indian brides like shades in bronze and copper. Before applying any eye shadow, always apply a primer. No eye makeup is complete without thick eye lashes. Apply two to three coats of good quality voluminous mascara on your upper and lower eye lashes.
Step 5 –
After having completed the eye makeup try sharpening your features. Use a matte pink blush to highlight the cheekbones. Choose the right tone for your blush to give a right depth and lift to your face. If you are fair to medium skin toned pick a fresh peach or coral blush. If you are on the duskier side take your pick from plum or deep colour. A bronzer can be used to do any facial contouring to accentuate the cheek bones, define the shape of a face or to make the nose appear more slender.
Step 6 –
Use lipstick in a colour that does not exactly match or sharply contrasts your wedding outfit. Use a lip gloss and line them with a lip liner.
