Hello beauties 🙂
I am getting so damn busy each passing day and this will continue till Ritcha’s marriage I think. Lots of shopping, sewing and other stuffs keep us occupied. But then, it is for good 🙂. Once in a lifetime moment for Ritcha. I want to do whatever I can for my darling sister 🙂.
So, hunting for a good parlour or makeup artist is according to me more important than searching for a beautiful outfit. You can get a good lehenga starting from 10k to over 2-5 lakhs or more if your budget is so. But getting/ selecting a good parlour or makeup artist makes or breaks your entire look. That lavish outfit or lehenga will only look good if your face is beautifully done. Even if you are wearing a high end designer lehenga and diamond jewellery but if your makeup is not correct, whole ensemble falls flat.
I personally have seen many beautiful girls turn into ghostly brides. White faces, wrong application of eye shadows and liners, those faking pouting mouths, outline of lips overdone making them look like a duck. Worst- those fake triangular moles or black spots on face…ohk that’s a beauty spot (doesn’t seem to me) ;). Disaster in the making!!
Girl, don’t compromise on makeup. When you can shell out a huge sum on outfits, then why not on makeup!! And according to me, in 20-30k, you can still get that decent makeup from some of our famous makeup artists that can transform your entire look and make you look angelic. This way, you would forever embrace your wedding photographs and would be able to show them to your children and grand children too 🙂,
In India makeup artists specially those at local parlours need to learn a lot when it comes to bridal makeup. Bridal makeup doesn’t mean you have to apply anything or everything which you consider as good and its not that you have to whiten the bride to make her look fair and then start painting. These are the biggest blunders that make a beautiful bride look like a christmas tree.
Whomsoever you book for your bridal makeup, do check the pictures of their work and if possible take a trial. Here I will be discussing all the things which you should keep in mind while getting ready or booking a parlour and the makeup blunders they do with a bride.
Oh, I know MAC also makes glitters but not for sprinkling it all over the bride’s face!! I have seen many Indian MUA’s specially those gully wala parlours are so fond of glitter that they spread it all over bride’s face. Somebody tell them that it should be highlighter that too not everywhere. They make the bride look like a shimmery crafty thing as they are so used to put it on lips, eyes, cheeks to bring that glow and they say look at you….perfect glow!! Madam…aaj to banta hai 😉 Never confuse highlighter with glitter or sparkles.
If you want those perfectly contoured cheekbones, check out first if your MUA knows to highlight and contouring your cheekbones with bronzer and say a complete no to shimmery bronzer as it will make you look awful. Always go for matte bronzer. This is something you should ask and discuss with your MUA in advance.
Never make a mistake of wearing smokey eye makeup in your wedding. After all you are a bride and your makeup specially your eye makeup should compliment your outfit. It should be like something which will make you look fresh, lively and young and smokey eyes will send the opposite message. And yes, whatever eye makeup you go for, make sure it is blended well.
I think we all have seen brides wearing that little black dot so called beauty spot on chin or on the side of lips. There are still a few MUA’s who will put that on. Gals please don’t go for that, even if you MUA insist – say a straight no. Times are gone when this kind of makeup was liked and this will only send a wrong message.
So, these are some simple pointers that you need to avoid at all costs – bridal makeup or no-bridal, simple party makeup. Makeup is meant for enhancing your look not destroying it.
