“Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale”
And all our brides want to look like a fairy on her Wedding Day. Your bridal avatar is a new reflection of your expressions that reflects a new and more beautiful you.
From your sandals, jewelry, fragrance, dupatta, hair to makeup – all tell a story that it’s not a regular day, not a simple you. You are above all – the most beautiful, dazzling, radiant, glamorous, and elegant bride.
A bride-to-be never leaves a stone untouched and looks after every detail about her look from dress to makeup and the “Beautiful bridal makeup defines a beautiful bride”. Most of our brides feel stressed about their wedding makeup – so to overcome the stress lines from your face – here is the step-by-step guide a bride-to-be wants to see before she gets married.
Cleanse your face
Nowadays, a bride can’t sit at home for long and care for her skin against sun damage and pollution. Keeping your face clean and clear is foremost for a flawless makeup application. Try to wash your face twice with a mild face wash that suits your skin type. Do not put the face wash on your face directly, take a small sump on your palm, dilute it by rubbing with water till you have a thick foam, and rub it softly on your face for five minutes. Wash it off with cold water. Pat dry your face with a clean cotton towel.
Apply Moisturizer & Primer
Moisturizing your skin is important after washing your face. Moisturizer helps close the open pores and gives a smooth texture for makeup. It prevents your skin from drying after face wash. Take moisturizer on your fingertip and apply it on your face, rub slowly all over your face till it gets absorbed in your skin.
After moisturizer applies a primer, take a few drops of primer and put it on your face focusing on the area like under the eye, c zone, t zone, jawline, and chin. Using your fingers spread them evenly on your face. You can use your fingertips or a makeup sponge to apply primer.
Conceal Your Marks
Apply concealer in an upside-down direction and blend it well until it merges well with your skin tone. Buy concealer that is a shade lighter than your natural skin tone. It helps your skin to hide all the marks, uneven skin tone, blemishes and gives a flawless and even-toned base for makeup application.
Note: Due to a mismatch of the shade your concealer could pop out differently, and a shade lighter or darker can stop your makeup from looking flawless & uniform. So, confirm the shade before buying it.
Cover with Foundation
Apply foundation uniformly on your face with the help of a makeup sponge. Getting a correct shade of foundation is tough – check the shade twice or thrice by applying it on your neck or chest. If you are using a liquid foundation, take it out in drops because for foundation – less is always more.
Spread it uniformly by patting it on your face lightly. Don’t forget to apply foundation on your neck area and collar bones, back of your neck. Confirm your undertone because the shade of your foundation needs to be blending your skin.
Warm Undertone: If your skin is whitish with a shade of yellow or gold- it falls in a warm undertone.
Cold Undertone: The pink and red glow on your face keeps it under a cool undertone.
Neutral: If your t-zone or c-zone is a mix of warm undertone & cold undertone that means it is neutral.
Pat with Face Powder
Buy face powder from different types of face powder –
- Loose Powder
- Pressed Powder
- Sheer Type vs Matte Type
It helps to lock your concealer & foundation and set your face for makeup application. Apply it with the help of a blush or brush.
Take a perfect shade – brown, black, or grey to define your eyebrow. Start by taking the small strokes from up to the down direction. Try to give a perfect shade to your eyebrows that help to give a perfect shape to your face and keeps your entire makeup altogether.

Contouring & Highlighting

Highlight the areas of your face with the help of the highlighter brush. Apply it in light strokes on your cheekbones, nose outline, nose tip, t-zone, and the tip of your chin.

Complete Your Eyes

Apply it in the settled shade like brown, black, dark blue. There are various forms of eyeliners available like gel base, liquid, and pencil.
