Bridal makeup tips
Skin: The traditional beauty regimen comprised of cleansing and scrubbing the body to provide a healthy glow to the skin. The skin was then moisturized with a bath of cream and saffron with exotically fragranced flowers. In contemporary times, there are a number of spas and massage centers where the bride-would be can go to get a relaxing massage and beauty treatment. You can also use a variety of baths, scrubs, essential oils and moisturizers to exfoliate your skin and get a vibrant glow. Nowadays, hair removal also forms an important part of skin radiance. Try a luxuriant bath to rejuvenate your senses and get an instant glow.
Hair Care: A bride’s hairstyle plays an important role in enhancing her looks and makeup. It is essential to oil your scalp with hot oil twice a week. Use a good shampoo and conditioner according to your hair type. You may opt for curling or leaving your hair straight depending on your preference and facial cut. You may also go in for a nice hair color that suits your complexion.
Foundation: You must go in for a foundation with a shade closest to your skin color. Never go in for a lighter shade as it tends to make you look unnatural. There are various liquid, solid and cream foundations available these days. Opt for one that you know is likely to blend with your skin tone. Dot and pat the foundation gently with a downward motion and use a little on your eyelids as a base for your eye makeup.
Powder: Use a good face powder that is likely to keep your foundation in place and stroke it all over the face and neck. It is better to go in for loose foundation and use a compact for touch up.
Eyes: Eyes are known as windows to your soul and must be properly dressed up for the biggest day of your life. A light shade of shadow during the daytime and a shimmering darker tone for the night is ideal. For a more dramatic effect, you can add a tinge of kohl and use a lash lengthening and thickening mascara. You can also apply a neat line of eyeliner to enhance the shape of your eyes.
Lips: Your face should always have a single focal point. If you keep the eyes dramatic, keep the pout subtle and vice versa. The ideal trend to follow for lips is to apply a rose or pink shade and team it up with rich lip gloss. Try using a thin brush to provide the right definition to your lips.
Blusher: There are thousands of shades of blushers to pick and choose from. For day makeup you must opt for a subtle shade whereas, for evening makeup you can opt for a heavier tone.
With these trendy bridal makeup tips you are sure to glow with the brilliance of a million stars on your wedding. Remember to match your entire makeup essentials and accessories to get the perfect look.
