Every bride-to-be wants to look her best on her big day, and makeup plays the hero role in making her look all dreamy and perfect. Choosing the right makeup look for your wedding day can be overwhelming, with so many options and products available in the market. Whether you’re going for a natural look or a glamorous look.
So to get done with all your confusion, here are the top five makeup tips for this wedding season.
Wedding Makeup Tips
First and foremost, it’s essential to hire a professional makeup artist who understands your skin type and can create a look that complements your wedding dress and accessories. A professional will also know how to use the right products that will last all day without smudging or budging.
Another important tip is to do a trial makeup session before the wedding day. Now, not all makeup artists give a trial, but make sure you ask for one. This will give you an idea of how your makeup will look and feel, and you will be more confident for your big day. One important thing to keep in mind is to avoid referring to celebrity makeup looks that are different from your skin tone or style. For example, if you have dusky skin tone and you cannot refer to an ‘Alia Bhatt’ look and expect a similar outcome or if you have fair skin tone then you cannot expect to look exactly like Priyanka Chopra. So trust your artist and let them suggest the best for you.
Lastly, make sure your artist is using high-quality makeup products that are long-lasting and won’t cause any skin irritation. Always do a patch test before using any new product to avoid any allergic reactions.
Bridal Makeup Looks
When it comes to bridal makeup looks, there are several options to choose from. One of the most popular looks is the traditional Indian bridal look, which features bold eyes, red lips, and heavy jewellery. Another popular look is the natural, dewy look, which is perfect for brides who want to look fresh and radiant. This is by far one of the most trending looks for the season.
For a modern new age bridal look, you can opt for a smokey eye paired up with a nude lips look. This look is just perfect for brides who want to keep it simple yet elegant. Whatever look you choose, make sure it complements your wedding dress and accessories. Very important!
Natural Wedding Makeup
If you’re going for a natural wedding makeup look, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, start with a good skincare routine to ensure that your skin is hydrated and glowing. Use a moisturizer with SPF to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Pre makeup skincare routine is an absolute must when it comes to makeup. Because it is your skincare that determines how flawless your makeup is going to last.
For the makeup, use a lightweight foundation or a tinted moisturizer that matches your skin tone. Opt for a cream blush for a natural flush of colour on your cheeks, nose, chin and forehead. Keep the eye makeup minimal with just a coat of mascara and a neutral eyeshadow shade. You can finish it up with a kajal on your waterline and a little bit of tight-lining.
Finish the look with a glossy lipstick shade that complements your skin tone. And don’t forget to set your makeup with a setting spray to ensure that it lasts all day.
Wedding Makeup Kits
Weddings are all about mixed emotions, one moment you’re going to feel all happy and excited and the next moment you will be shedding a tear. So, it’s important to have a wedding makeup kit with you on your big day to touch up your makeup whenever you feel like it is needed. Here are some essentials that you should include in your makeup kit:
Blotting papers to absorb excess oil, q-tips for smudged eyeliner or lipstick, a mini bottle of setting spray, a compact powder with a mirror, lipstick, lip gloss, and a lip liner.
Make sure you keep your makeup kit in a safe and easily accessible place so that you can touch up your makeup whenever needed.
Glossy Lipstick Shades
One of the trendiest makeup trends right now is glossy lipstick shades. These shades add a pop of color and gloss to your lips, making them look fuller and more plump. Some popular glossy lipstick shades for brides include: Peachy-pink shades for a fresh and youthful look, red shades for a bold, and glamorous look and nude shades for a natural, and subtle look.
When choosing a glossy lipstick shade, make sure it complements your skin tone and matches your wedding dress and accessories.
No matter what weather or what season, your sunscreen is your BFF no matter what. Hence, it is important to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, especially if you’re having a beautiful daytime wedding that is set on the outdoors. Make sure you apply sunscreen lotion with a minimum SPF 30 before applying your makeup. This will protect your skin from the harmful UVA and UVB rays that cause skin irritation and skin burning along with premature aging.
Memories are made out of moments, music and smell! So, don’t forget to wear your favourite perfumes on your wedding day and preserve this memory for a lifetime. Make sure you choose a perfume that complements your personality and matches your vibe.
These top five makeup tips for this wedding season will surely help you achieve the perfect bridal look. Whether you’re going for a traditional Indian bridal look or a natural no-makeup dewy look. End line is you are going to look like a stunner!
