FAQs on Bridal Makeup 

Q1. Should I use setting spray or powder to set bridal makeup? 

Setting spray offers a lightweight and natural finish, ideal for those with dry or mature skin, providing a dewy glow while helping makeup last longer. On the other hand, setting powder is excellent for controlling shine and mattifying oily areas, ensuring a matte finish that withstands sweat and humidity. 

Q2. How to avoid makeup flashback? 

Flashback is the white cast that shows up on your face when you take a photo with flash or are under direct spotlight. It can be because of the wrong setting powder or the wrong shade of foundation or concealer. It may look fine under natural lighting but can make your face look ashy under flash. Avoid high SPF, translucent powder and light concealer. As for foundation, see that it is matte and make sure to use a tinted setting powder. And of course, do a flash test before you head out. 

Q3. What are the trendy wedding makeup looks for Indian brides? 

There is the no-makeup makeup look which has become all the rage now thanks to Bollywood white weddings. Metallic, all glam and bold, classic red lips and smokey eye, monochromatic look, and a nude glossy finish are also favourite looks among Indian brides.
