Your wedding day is likely to be the most photographed day of your life , bridal beauty should be high on list too . Some brides wouldn’t dream of their ideal beauty look .
1. Know what you want on your big day?
While you might not entirely know what you want when it comes to makeup and hair, firstly you should have conversation with your friends and family to get an idea. If you would like to go all out with your makeup, look for a makeup artist whose extravagant style appeals to your taste.
If you prefer light makeup, choose a makeup artist whose forte is that, as opposed to someone who creates glitter smoky eyes on the regular.
It is essential that you, your makeup artist and hairstylist be on the same page so you are not in for a surprise on the actual day.
2. Get a makeup trial
Makeup trials are the great deal breaker, once you have shortlisted popular makeup artists whose work you like.
Let them see your skin; it is highly recommend that they understand your skin. Talk to them if they need any skin treatments before your weeding day. Make sure you come prepared with at least specimen of your outfit and the jewellery you will be wearing. “Ideally the lehenga should be ready so the makeup artist and hairstylist can recommend the best looks. Only once, they know how high the collar is or if the neck is low or not can they put together the entire look. It is important to know how heavy the jewellery will be as well. Everyone should be on the same page”.
3. Makeup looks good if your skin is healthy.
Without good skin, you cannot look good – Even with many makeup layers, it often becomes a problem to dry and dull skin. Makeup will not absorb with skin because of the dead skin cell deposition. So if you want glowing skin on your wedding day and also for more days ahead, you should not ditch the scrubbing part of the whole skincare routine. It is, in fact, the primary step to getting good skin.
4. Get rid of Dark Circles.
If you do not get proper eight-hour sleep or you have a life filled with wedding stress, you will get dark circles. Applying cold compresses under the eyes, elevating the head during sleep and getting adequate sleep may help to prevent dark circles.
5. Avoid Swollen Eyes and Eye Bags.
The best thing to get rid of these by using some cooling techniques and to follow that technique regularly before your wedding.
Cucumbers have skin-lightening and mild astringent properties, so you can use cucumber slices to fix raccoon eyes naturally.
Rose water can work as a skin toner. Just soak cotton in rose water for a few minutes, and then let the soaked makeup pads sit on your CLOSED eyelids. Leave them for about 15 minutes twice daily.
To use cold tea bags as a compress, soak a tea bag in clean water and then place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Then, place the tea bags on your eyes. Leave for 10 minutes or so twice daily before removing and rinsing the area with warm water.
6. Drink More Water.
Water in your body moves from places with the most water to those with the least. The parts of your body that are low in sodium (salt) contain more water, while the parts of your body with more sodium contain less water.
When your body does not have enough water but too much salt, you can look and feel puffy and bloated.
The skin around your eyes is especially thin and vulnerable to dehydration.
7. Good sleep
is very important, and without proper sleep, you will get a dull looking skin. You must get good sleep for at least 8 hours a day before your wedding.
8. Condition Your Hair:
You should also care for your hair. If your makeup looks okay, but your hair is all dull and lifeless, then it will be a waste. Do not forget to invest in a well-branded conditioner for your hair.
Oil Massage: Oil massage helps in blood circulation. It goes for the hair and the body as a whole. You should ask a massage parlor therapist to give you a good massage, or you can go to a good parlor and get some head or body massage done.
Thread Facial Hair: If you have dark hair growth on the face, your makeup will not look good. Get your facial hair threaded.
9. Moisturize Face:
Apply moisturizer twice daily. Use a lighter moisturizer for daytime with an SPF, and be sure to use a heavier moisturizer and eye cream before going to bed every night. Bridal makeup needs the right base makeup. It should not go wrong.
10. Never leave your neck.
Have you ever noticed that some brides have a fairer face and dull neck? Well…I have observed it a lot. When the brides have this kind of makeup…their overall appearance seems fake. So girls make sure that your makeup artists cover your neck as well with the makeup to save you from the blunder.
