A wedding is that event in a girl’s life that she has been dreaming of ever since she was a little girl. The day of the wedding is undoubtedly one of the most important days in a girl’s life, as she is the only point of attention. Most girls start planning their wedding way in advance – from the venue to the floral decorations to the wedding dress et al.
The makeup that the bride wears is one that will forever be etched in photographs and videos. So, it’s very important for the makeup to be right.
Indian skin tones vary from person to person to an enormous extent. However, they can broadly be categorized into three groups – very fair to fair, medium and dark.
While going for your bridal makeup, it’s very important that you keep your skin tone in mind.
Here are some Indian bridal makeup tips for dark skin, fair skin and medium skin Indian brides:
Indian Bridal Makeup Tips for Very Fair To Fair Skin Tones:
Since you have the palest of all skin tones, all cool tones in the makeup world are meant for you. You can easily carry off bright pinks, bright reds and other such hues. Choose a proper foundation as there is always a fear of looking ghostly pale if the foundation doesn’t match. If you want to be a unique bride, go for bright colours for your lips – pinks and pink based peaches. MAC and Inglot have many such lovely colours. You can also experiment with varied hues for your eye makeup. Make sure that your eye makeup and lip makeup do not cancel but instead balance out each other. For the blush, try beautiful shades of coral and pink.
