Whether you have got a flair for doing makeup or you are on a tight budget and wish to do your bridal makeup yourself, you have come to the right place. We have got some professional tips lined up for you that can make bridal makeup for marriage seem like a piece of cake.
Blot Out the Oil
Pakistani brides getting married in summers usually face one major problem, an oily face full of makeup that gives a very shoddy appearance. When dressing up for your big shaadi day, always keep a shine control powder or oil free blotting papers handy. When choosing foundations and primers, go for oil free formulas that can illume your face without that oily sheen.
Turn the Makeup up a Notch
To avoid looking too pale in pictures, try to go for darker than usual makeup so the camera can detect the blush. When prepping for your special day, start with doing lighter makeup and take a picture and check. If you are looking too pale and the makeup is not showing, add more blush, lip color and eye shadow.
Golden Beauty Rule – Always Use A Primer
You are going to be the center of attraction on your big day and obviously do not wish to have a shoddy appearance. Do yourself a favor and get your hands on the best face primer you can find. The best color correcting face primer is from Clinique. This multitasking cream can work wonders for your skin. It can diminish the appearance of premature sun damage and uneven skin tone and makes your skin appear brighter and spotless. The best benefit you can get from using a primer is that your makeup will last all day long without the slightest smudge.
Blend, Blend and Blend
Your face is like a canvas and you are the painter. Having an evenly shaded background is imperative. If you want your makeup to look like it is done by an expert makeup artist, apply your foundation with a rounded sponge or brush. This will give your makeup a smooth finish plus blending the foundation will be much easier.
Conceal the Imperfections
This tip is quite unheard of but once you try it, there will be no going back to the old ways ever again. Try to apply the concealer after you are done with applying the foundation. Putting on concealer before the foundation can give an impression like you have a lot of makeup piled on. Also when selecting the shade of the concealer, you might want to go peachy shades that will look much more appropriate on the blue and purplish tones around your eyes.
For Those Perfectly Flushed Cheeks
Instead of opting for a powder blush, try using a cream blush or a cheek stain for that perfectly flushed look. You can layer on the powder blush to make the color last longer than usual.
Fill In Those Brows
Thin eyebrows can add years to a younger face and no bride wants to look older on her marriage ceremony. In order to look younger and add that much needed vibrancy to your face, always fill in your brows with a brow pencil in a shade or two lighter than the natural color of your eyebrows. You will be surprised when you see the unbelievable results. The reason why using an eyebrow pencil is necessary is because your eyebrows play an instrumental role in shaping your whole face.
If your bear these few tips in mind, you can do your bridal makeup yourself and people won’t even know the difference whether your makeup was done by an expert or not on your shaadi.
