- Bronzer or contour powder
- To blush
- Make it obvious
- False eyelashes (optional)
Cleansing and Moisturizing
The first step to a good foundation is cleaning. While you will be doing your wedding facials a few days before, make sure you wash your face with a good facial cleanser (the one you used to use) and then moisturize your skin with a moisturizer. When your skin is hydrated, it makes your skin a better canvas to lay your makeup on.
The job of a primer is to prepare the skin for makeup and keep it on for a long time and make the skin less oily so that the makeup doesn’t slip off. Some primers can fill the pores in the skin to make it smoother. You have to spread the primer all over your face and use your fingers or a wet beauty blender to blend it into your skin. Make sure you stroke it so it stays on your skin longer.
Color Correcting (Optional)
Color correction is an optional step in this bridal makeup look. Color correctors are cream-based correctors that come in different colors like red, green, yellow, and peach. If you have hyperpigmentation, you need to tap a red concealer and then blend it seamlessly into your skin using a patting motion. You can only use your fingers for this. If you have red spots or pimples on your face, choose the green concealer. The color corrector basically balances out any other pigmentation on your skin.
Indian Bridal Makeup And Foundation
Then comes the most important step in your makeup, which is your foundation. You should always try the perfect shade for yourself, don’t go lighter or darker because foundations usually tarnish your skin and won’t look good unless you choose the perfect shade. For that, you need to see if the shade blends seamlessly with your skin and looks like a second skin. Put the foundation on a brush or sponge, then spread it all over the face and use patting motions to press the foundation. Once it’s pretty much incorporated, use your sponge to mix it all up. You will be left with a smooth base.
If you still feel that you have other aspects of your face that you need to highlight and hide, you can use a concealer. The trick is to use a shade of concealer that is one shade lighter than your skin tone. Use it under the eyes, on the forehead between the eyebrows, on the bridge of the nose, and also on any other imperfections that you would like to hide. Let the concealer sit for a minute or two until it becomes creamy, then blend it into your skin. Make sure you touch them or the concealer will slip if you try to blend it.
Contouring and Tanning
In the hollow of your cheeks and on your forehead near your hairline, you can use a bronzer or powder to warm up your skin. Just run the brush through those product spots and blend it out so there are no sharp edges. This will give you a beautiful chiseled and sun-kissed look to your face.
Indian Bridal Makeup And Blush
On the apples of your cheeks, apply a peach or wine blush because these colors look much more natural than pink. Smile and find the apples of your cheeks and apply some blush. Be careful, because blush goes from 0 to 100 very quickly, we wouldn’t want you to end up a clown. It starts light and then if you feel you need more, you can easily build it up.
Using a fan brush, apply a highlighter to the high points of your face. Usually, these are the places where the light hits your face the most. Apply a little on the cheekbones, forehead, bridge of the nose, cupid’s bow, and chin. Make sure to mix it properly.
I come to one of the most important aspects of your makeup. No step-by-step Indian bridal makeup guide is complete without eye makeup. Fill in your brows using pomade.
Take the brown eye shadow and use it to define your crease with a wiper motion. Mix it completely. Depending on the color of your dress, choose the rarest color in it and use a similar eyeshadow on your lid.
Take an eyeshadow in the dominant color of your dress and use it from the center crease to the outer crease in a triangular motion so it looks like a feather. Make sure the eyeshadow on your lids goes from light to dark colors and then make sure you blend it all right.
Put some white shadow under the browbone and the inner corners of the eyes. Pair it with black eyeliner and false eyelashes or just mascara. Using a white or nude kohl pencil on the lower waterline makes the eyes pop.
Indian Bridal Makeup And Lip Makeup
Brides usually choose bright red or marsala or wine-colored lipstick. You can choose the color that you think will match your dress. However, it is better to choose red, because with such a color you can never go wrong. After applying the lipstick, outline the lips with a lip liner, so the lipstick will never bleed.
