But that doesn’t mean you take hasty decisions and finalise something you’re not happy with, for example your makeup look.

You may have finalised a makeup artist to do your wedding look however, having a few tips up your sleeve never hurt anyone. To make sure you get a flawless bridal look we have a few tips that will help.


Opt for long-wearing formulas

Consider trends but don’t get swayed by it

Your wedding day is going to be one the longest days of your life and all the focus will be on you. On such a day it only makes sense to invest in makeup products that will minimize the need for touch-ups. Look for waterproof, matte formulas such as the Lakmé Absolute Face Contour and Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color.


Don’t ignore your décolletage

Consider trends but don’t get swayed by it

Most brides and makeup artists stop right at the jawline which makes your face and neck look totally different. Even if you are wearing a heavy necklace don’t ignore the décolletage, ensure the foundation is evenly spread on this area. Dusting some highlighter on your collar bone will really enhance your look.


Don’t pile on too much makeup

Consider trends but don’t get swayed by it

We know it’s your wedding day but we’re sure you don’t want to look like a ghost that nobody recognizes. It does not necessarily have to be very heavy because the high definition camera of your photographer will surely pick up the cakey look on your skin. Hide all the flaws using concealer and use the same amount of foundation you would normally use to make you face look even.


Go for a trial session

Consider trends but don’t get swayed by it

The best part about hiring a professional to do your makeup is that you can always ask for a trial session days before your wedding. The artist can give you more than one option to choose from. This also eliminates last minute confusion.
