BB collaborated with ace blogger Shruti Arjun Anand to give you a stepwise breakdown on Indian bridal makeup...
To make your wedding makeup last longer, use a face primer like the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Primer and apply it all over your face by gently rubbing it into your skin just like a moisturiser. Up next, apply the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Skin Cover Foundation on your face using a damp cosmetic sponge. This will give you full coverage as well as make your foundation look flawless.
To hide the darkness around the eye area and to make your eyeshadow lasts all day, use the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick. Once you’re done covering the darker areas of your face, highlight your skin by applying the concealer to the bridge of your nose, cupid’s bow, chin and center of the forehead. Blend the concealer using the same cosmetic sponge. But make sure you use the same sponge to pick up product from a compact that suits your skin tone and dab it on the areas you applied concealer in.
For blush, use the Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos—Coral. Just dab the blush on your cheeks and blend in upward motion. Next, use a small face brush to pick up product from the Lakmé Absolute Sun Kissed Bronzer and apply it on your skin to contour your cheeks. Make sure you apply it on the sides of your nose to make it look slimmer. Blend using the cosmetic sponge as that is a crucial step when it comes to wedding makeup.
Fill your eyebrows using the Lakmé Eyebrow Pencil. Next, pick the pink shade from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Royal Persia and apply the colour on the outer corner of your crease and then to the inner corner.
Take the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eyeshadow Palette in French Rose and pick the darkest colour from this palette and pat this eyeshadow on the outer corner of your eyelids followed by blending it in a circular motion. Next, blend the eyeshadow upwards using a fluffy brush.
Pick up the pink colour from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in French Rose and apply it all over your eyelid. Next, using a blending brush, blend the eyelid eyeshadow with the crease eyeshadow.
On your lower waterline, apply the Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal but smudge it out with the other end of the kajal. Post this, line your upper lash line using the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Artist in Black.
To make your bridal eye makeup pop, use the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara in Royal Blue. Next, pick some highlighter and apply it on the highest points of your cheeks, the bridge of your nose, cupid’s bow and chin.
When talking about bridal makeup, first use a matte lipstick like the Lakmé Absolute Sculpt Studio Matte Lipstick in Burgundy Affair on your lips. To make your lipstick look a little more pink, use the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color in Lush Rose and voila! You have your bridal makeup look in place.
