Remember that all professional makeup artists, Cory Walia included recommend that brides should look like themselves during their wedding day. To look glamorous yet understated equip yourself with an eye pencil, an eyeshadow palette, a liquid liner and a mascara so that you get your eye makeup spot on. And given that no bridal look is ever complete without a hint of colour on the lips or cheeks make sure to finish off your look with a well-defined pout and a subtle rosy hue on your cheeks.
After setting your base perfectly, start with your eye makeup. Use the Lakmé Absolute Forever Silk Eye Pencil in Brown and apply a thick line on your eyelids to serve as the base for your eyeshadow.
Then use the Lakmé 9to5 Eye Quartet in Tanjore Rush and apply the copper shade on the top inner corner of your eyes and across the entire eye lid with the help of a soft brush. Follow this up by using an eye pencil as it gives depth to your eyes and helps keep your eye makeup stand out further.
Line your eyes with the Lakmé Absolute Precision Liquid Liner to define and shape them.
Apply mascara to open up your eyes and make them seem bigger.
Sculpt your face by applying the Lakmé 9to5 Pure Rouge Blusher across the length of your cheekbones.
Complete the look by doing your lips. Play them up with Lakmé 9to5 Lip Liner in Beige Pink and add a finishing touch with Lakmé Absolute Gloss Addict in Bare Beige. Blend in with a lip- brush for a seamless finish.
Your bridal makeup is now ready for the most memorable occasion of your engagement.
And yes... you can wear the same look for your wedding reception as well. Just go bold with your eyes or lips to take your makeup up to that dramatic notch that is required for the occasion of the reception.
