Your wedding day sans a glimmer of doubt shall be the most photographed day of your lifetime. So, while wedding décor and menu list might seem to be crucial, the bridal makeup must be high on your list as well. Bridal makeup is one of the aspects of your wedding which calls for scrutiny, hours of examining products, scrolling past looks, and tips from our very own professional makeup artist-Noor.
Here are some of the best bridal makeup tricks and tips every bride must be aware of to look stunning!
Hydration is Key to a Radiant-Looking Skin
Makeup is like a cast of spells which can transform any dull-looking face into something mesmerizing. However, there are certain things that you must bear in mind and efforts that you need to put in to make your skin glow for the wedding. One such thing to prioritize is keeping your skin hydrated.
For this, Celebrity bridal makeup artist Chennai – Noor advice on increasing the consumption of water. Drinking at least 3 litters of water per day for approx. a couple of weeks before your wedding can drastically improve your skin. It is only when your skin is hydrated and glows from within, that you can witness a major difference in the appearance of pores and fine lines.
Prep up In Advance with the Basic Skincare Routine
Before even planning out your bridal makeup look, you must create a mindset about a proper skincare routine. Our celebrity makeup artist Noor, recommends splurging in a good alcohol-free and tea-tree based toner to enhance the process of breaking down dull layers and dead skin cells of the skin. Also, investing in a good moisturizer is a good way to make your skin glow.
Improve Your Base with a Good Primer
While a primer might sound silly and seem to you like an unnecessary step to your skincare routine, it is designed to work wonders on your skin, especially when it comes to making your makeup stand the test of tears, time, and stress. Primers as per makeup specialist Noor not only preps your skin to be layered with makeup and help it last but also ensures that your skin looks radiant from within.
Do Not Forget to Dab Some SPF
Rumour has it that using an SPF beneath your makeup will trigger flashback in your wedding photoshoots, but in the experience of makeup expert-Noor, that isn’t solely the case. The flashback can be experienced only when the photographer uses direct flash close to your face which must be avoided in all circumstances. SPF is really important especially if you are having an outdoor wedding and you have to face the sun all day long.
The kind of foundation that you pick will be based according to your overall finish and the type of skin that you are blessed with. Most of the Indian brides look for a full-coverage foundation so always opt for a glow or a satin finish if you have combination or dry skin, says makeup artist Noor. For brides with oily skin, stick to matte finish foundation as it would get mixed with your skin oils and create a natural look. Go for a satin foundation, if you have oily or dry skin.
Go for a Smudge-Proof Mascara
A wedding is highly-sentimental affairs, and even if you are not the emotional types, it is always great to be prepped up with a smudge-proof mascara. Waterproof mascara is a must for your nuptial ceremonies, but always consider applying the mascara that is not your base first before the application of your waterproof mascara as it will give you the length, volume, and fullness.
Faux Lashes Are A Must
While faux eyelashes aren’t a mandatory beauty product, makeup professional Noor claims that they can help accentuate your eyes. This doesn’t imply that you need to invest in extraordinarily big eyelashes, but rather take the natural route and pick natural-looking faux eyelashes.
Keep Away from Heavy Contouring
Courtesy to the beauty influencer vloggers, contouring has garnered immense popularity amongst the millennial brides. But according to the wedding photographers, you might want to stay away from it during your special day. One of the top tips suggested by Noor is to avoid heavy contouring. While contouring might be the ongoing trend, it might look a little weird to go for extra layers of the same. Rocking thin strips of either side of the cheekbones is however always welcome to make your face look sharp.
Besides, investing in the right makeup brushes and tools, and the mindset to look yourself is also to be taken care of, to achieve the finest bridal makeup look in town. Happy decking up your skin!
