For us girls, one of the biggest occasions of our life is our fairy-tale wedding and which girl doesn’t want to be involved with the smallest details of her wedding, right?  While we spend hours getting our clothes right for the big day , we must pay equal attention to the ABC’s of our wedding makeup because we don’t want to end up with makeup that is less than perfect on our big day.

Before you get to the actual wedding makeup tips, you must have the right products required to create a bridal makeup look. A concealer stick will hide your uneven skin tone and is the first step towards getting your wedding makeup look right. You also need the right shade of foundation that will work as the perfect base for the rest of the makeup for the wedding. Keep a compact ready so you can lend the right finish to your foundation and to hold the makeup in place over the course of a long function.  You must also arm yourself with a shimmery eye shadow palette, a liner to glam up your peepers, a kajal pencil to define and darken the eyes as well as a mascara to achieve the perfect fluttery lashes. And if you thought you were done, you will also need a blush for your cheeks and a rich colour for your lips. Here's how to get this look:

Step 1

Start by using the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick to cover up any blemishes or unevenness on the skin, especially around the eyes and the mouth.

Step 2

Use the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Skin Cover for foundation and blend it evenly on your face and neck with a foundation brush. Make sure to choose a foundation after selecting a shade that will work well for your complexion and withstand the glare of bright lights and photographer flash bulbs.

Step 3

To give the foundation a finished look, apply the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact. This will keep your makeup on as you dance and smile your way through the evening.

Step 4

Use the Lakmé Absolute 9to5 Eye Quartet in Silk Route for a purple shadow and sweep the colour generously across the eye socket. Follow this up with the pale pink shade from the same quartet to lend your eyes a contrasting look.

Step 5

Use a combination of the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Artist to line your eyes and the Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal to fill in and darken the waterline and lower lid for smudge free, dark and dramatic eyes.

Step 6

Finish the eyes with some volumizing mascara that’ll lengthen your lashes and make them flutter friendly.

Step 7

Use the Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos in Coral Blush to define your cheekbones. For tips on how to apply blush correctly, we are always able to give you a detailed breakdown should you need it.

You want your lips to look defined but not over the top. For this, go for the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Addict in Desert Rose, a soft yet stunning colour for bridal lips!
