Written by Urvi ShahNov 30, 2021

We know you’re flustered, bride-to-be. There’s so much you have to attend to - and promptly. Before you get swept in pre-wedding formalities though, we’ve put together a list of 5 makeup faux pas you must steer clear of on your big day. After all, don’t you want to look stunning in your photos?

01. Not using waterproof mascara

Nuptials are characterised by emotion-riddled brides. And, yes, you can say you’re not one to cry, but let’s cover - and foolproof - all of our bases. If you coat your lashes with a mascara that’s not waterproof, you’re going to end up with tear-stricken smudges on your face.

02. Skipping on a trial

If you want your makeup to flatter you, you must do a trial with your MUA before the wedding. In this way, you’ll get a sense of your makeup artist’s expertise, and course-correct if needed.

03. Not using long-lasting makeup

Just how elaborate and drawn-out are Indian weddings? Ensure that you’re wearing long-wear makeup only. You might not have the time to re-apply your lipstick or tweak your eyebrows every now and then. For your lips, the Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Colour - Sour Cherry is perfect not just because of how pigmented it is, but because it stays for 16 hours. Since it’s infused with moisturising properties, you won’t feel like your lips are chapping or drying either. The range comes in 25 deliciously-hued colours - light and dark matte-textured shades.

04. Experimenting with new products

Pacify that adventurous streak in you for your big day. Experimenting with foreign products might just trigger breakouts or allergic reactions on the skin. Always use tried-and-tested products on your skin.

05. Saying no to body makeup

Allow your makeup artists to extend your makeup to your collar-bones and neck for a cohesive look. You can conceal any spots, blemishes, or scars on your body with makeup as well - or not. We’re all for embracing our bodies!
