10 Bridal Makeup Tips:
1. Indian Bridal Makeup:
- Perfection is the only word you would wish to be described by on this super special day of your life. The perfect bridal makeup tips for an Indian bride include a traditional touch along with a well-styled attire depending on your vernacular city.
South Indian Bride
South Indian and Christian weddings need to have minimal and natural makeup because they mostly have day weddings while the makeup can be heavy in northern weddings with more colors and glitters as the weddings are usually at night.
The weather should be kept in mind while selecting the makeup as in summer you will need durable bridal makeup while in winter anything can stay.
2. Bridal face makeup:
I am sure you would need bridal makeup tips for your face as well. For an appealing look that lasts long, first of all, clean your face thoroughly to remove all the dirt and oil from your face and then dry it by patting with your hands.
After cleansing your face, moisturize it by rubbing your fingertips gently in a circular motion for an even looking skin and more smoother appearance.
After moisturizing, a primer should be used after two minutes for keeping the foundation and concealer intact and thus ensuring a long-lasting glowing appearance.
After the primer, comes the concealer to lighten up the spots and blemishes on your skin. Colored concealers can also be used for covering reddish and bluish blemishes.
Then, apply a good foundation. A foundation not having SPF as one of its ingredients is preferable to prevent the undesirable flash effect in your photographs because after all, you would not be wasting much of your time under the sunlight on your wedding day.
Blend the foundation well, beginning from the center face and moving towards the outlines near the ears with the help of a brush or a sponge. Matte finish foundation is a better foundation as it will save you from the greasy look of heavy makeup.
To get a glowing skin, a highlighter can be used on the sharp features of your face like the nose heading towards the center of the forehead leaving the sides of the nose, cheekbones, etc.
Now, for a sharper and edgier look in the photographs use a bronzer and proper blushes that go well with your outfit.
Take some blush on a makeup brush and pat the excess off. Hold a steady smile while applying it in a circular motion on the sides of your chin leaving the centre, blending it upwards towards the ears.
For applying the bronzer, you need to suck the cheeks inwards and apply it on the upper region of the contour making sure it does not cover the whole contour, in lighter strokes. Do the same on the forehead sides and along the two sides of the nose bone except the top part. Bronzer is a better option than shimmers or glitters.
Do not overdo anything. Moderation is the key. These bridal makeup tips are surely going to help you look flawless on your special day.
3. Bridal eye makeup:
As gold highlights the looks of ghaghraas, lehengas, sarees, fuschia, magenta, red, green, etc. hence gold is the shade majorly used for eye makeup by Indian brides. Use gold, peach, pink shades with charcoal on the outer lid contour for smoky and subtle effect.
For the eyebrows use a brush preferably angled with the right amount of brow powder or an eyebrow pencil. Use a dark, smudge-free, black eyeliner rather than green or blue ones. A bold stroke on the upper eyelid and a thicker one for the lower one extended till the outermost corner will bring out the oomph factor.
Also, use a mascara to enhance the volume.
For the eyelashes, use a curled brush mascara. Seek advice from a professional makeup artist as to what type of eye lining will suit your eyes. If you want thicker eyelashes, you can use fake eyelashes but do try it before the D-day, so that it does not come out as a spoiler.
Eyelid primers are also available which help keep your eye makeup firm and stay longer on your eyes. Follow these bridal makeup tips and your man would go weak in the knees, ladies! 😉
4. Bridal lip makeup:
Use a lip liner before applying the lipstick.
In case your lips are thin, use a skin colored lip liner and extend your lip line filling the center of the lower lip with shimmer which will give your lips a fuller look. If your lips are fuller then extend your natural outline with a shade that merges well with your lipstick.
Complete the entire look with a lipstick. Use blood red, cherry or maroon for plump lips and peach, light pink, pearl pink for thinner lips.
Choose a long lasting lipstick for your D-day.
5. Bridal hair makeup:
Perfect silky and shiny hair complete the bridal look like icing on the cake. And in case you’re looking for bridal makeup tips for your hair, then you’ve hit the right button.
Oil massages are good for the body and the hair, as they help in blood circulation. Apply good homemade hair packs to provide protein and shine boost to your hair. Go for deep conditioning twice or thrice prior to the wedding.
6. Hands and legs:
Moisturize your hands and legs daily before going to bed.
Go for regular manicure and pedicure sessions. You can use highlighter powder to give a natural-looking glow to your hands and your feet.
Good and smooth looking nails are also a part of the makeup look, get your nails buffed, trimmed and shaped.
7. A healthy routine:
Even a lot of makeup cannot make you look good if your skin is dry and dull. All parts of your body need proper scrubbing for that natural glow and smoothness. This comprises of your face, elbows, knees and as well as your back. And we have ideas for your skin care along with the bridal makeup tips.
You may use homemade scrubs or those available in the market.
Improper sleep and stress result into dark circles. Apply a good night-eye cream, under eye cream or a pen serum to lighten up your dark circles. Also, ensure you get proper sleep to avoid puffy and baggy eyes. Soaked chamomile tea bags, cucumber, and cold potatoes can be used to get rid of puffiness.
You must use a good sunscreen for preventing any sunspots, blemishes or tanning of the skin.
Avoid fried food and junk food before your wedding because it may result in acne and you may end up with a bad skin.
If you face the trouble of sudden pimples on your face, do not worry and zap them with white toothpaste.
Drink plenty of water, have a balanced diet and a proper sleep to ensure a healthy glowing skin.
8. Makeup for wedding:
Getting ready for a wedding party involves a lot of confusion about what would become too over the top and what would be too understated.
Just give a touch of modernity to the ethnic look. Do not match your eye-shadow with your outfit, let it complement the outfit.
Keep the makeup a bit heavier than your usual parties but do not end up looking like a made-up doll. Keep it simple. Keep it gorgeous.
9. Latest Bridal makeup:
Girls dream to look the best on their wedding day but in tune with the latest trends straight-off the runways.

Moisturizer, primer, concealer, foundation, eyebrow pencil, mascara, eyeliner, kajal, lipliner, lipstick, blush brush, highlighter, bronzer, eye-shadow palette, makeup wipes, face scrub and a lip balm.
Everyuth and clean & clear scrubs are good.
Sephora and MAC are among the top brands for primers. You can opt for highlighters from Colorbar, Sephora, or MAC.
