3. Face Fix Up Tips:
a. Use a primer 2 minutes post moisturiser application and blend it well as this helps to keep your concealer and foundation in place and holds it for long hours. Sally Hansen or MAC are amongst the top brands for primers.
b. It is equally important to use a concealer (use the stick form) to cover spots or blemishes. You can brighten up your skin tone by using any of the colour concealers like yellow or green to cover reddish blemishes on the skin.
c. Apply a foundation without SPF and blend it well with a makeup brush especially on to the underside of your eyes, and for the rest of your face, blend using a makeup sponge. Mineral foundation would be a suggestible option as well. A foundation with SPF will make you look flashed in the photographs, it’s better to avoid it. You won’t be spending much time in the sun on your wedding anyway!
d. You can use an illuminator by Neutrogena, Revlon or MAC for the light reflecting shine on the face.
4. Bronzer Tips:
It is commonly used to heavily contour the face and make it look ravishing and sharp in the photographs.

Take a blush brush preferably angular and apply with strokes on to the sides of chin but not on the centre. Do the same on the sides of the forehead as well as on the two sides along the nose bone but not on the top. Suck your cheeks in and use some bronzer on to the top part of the contours near to the ear in light strokes. But make sure it’s not along the entire length of the contour.
5. Blush Tips:
Take some blush on a blush brush and pat excess off, let your cheeks in and apply in strokes moving from down to top near the ears.
6. Eye Shadow Tips:
Indian brides love peachy eye makeup shades, since they it goes well with their red, fuchsia or green lehengas, ghagras or heavy saris. So If you want to play it safe, this is the colour to go with!
Paint up your eyelids with a peachy pink shade, and use some charcoal shadow on the exterior lid contours to give a ravishing Smokey effect, and this is achievable by using a brown shade into the inner crease area. You can also use golden shadow instead of silver for the brow bones.
Use an eyebrow pencil or an angular brush dipped in brow powder for the eyebrows.
