Why? Not only does make-up sit better on smooth and hydrated skin, those occasions where you go sans makeup (think “haldi” ceremony) get taken care of too!

Everything rests on a strong foundation… including your make-up! I know you already know, but since you might be investing in a new (water-proof) foundation – I can’t but repeat – it’s all about covering your blemishes and achieving the perfectly toned skin. NOT about achieving a lighter skin tone!

So ladies, be comfortable in your skin, and get the accurate shade and brand that you must try for at least 2-3 months before your wedding day (we don’t want any unhappy surprises!)

Makeup Tips – On your D Day – use a gel foundation for its staying power!

No matter how much of a bridechilla you are, be prepared to shed some tears! And you can’t ignore the threat of sweat under those strong harsh lights. So of course, everything has to be waterproof and smudge-proof! Right from your foundation to the last coat of mascara.

If your current makeup stash isn’t waterproof – invest in some new stuff that is. And do this months before the wedding day so you have time to try them all out.

Eye Makeup Tips – Don’t use glittery eye-liners, not very photogenic! And no matter how much you love your kajal pencil – on the D day it is nothing but liquid eyeliner.

Most make-up artists and hair stylists provide trial sessions for bridal makeup. Go ahead, and get yours done – and be 100% sure which look brings out the best in you! Also, ask your make-up artists about the brands she’s using on your skin, and if they’re not your regular brands – a trial will help you avoid any breakouts or blemishes on your wedding day.

Makeup Trial Tips – Click your makeup trial pictures & note down the shades used!

Your lips must be neither too bold nor too bland – they have to be just perfect! While the usual wedding colours are reds, pinks and corals, you must match the shade with your outfit. And lip-liners are a must. Don’t be afraid to try nude shades if they suit your skin and face!

The Pop Pout Trick –Peel Off Lip Stains are the latest thing. Just apply-dry-peel-off and you’re good to go. They lasts super long too – but be sure to try it before so you know you like the look!

In Short…
