Preparing the Canvas: Skincare and Pre-Bridal Makeup Trials  

A pre-wedding skincare routine is more than just a step-by-step regimen; it's an investment in achieving that radiant bridal glow. Cleanse, exfoliate, moisturise and pamper your skin for a smooth canvas for your makeup. A well-prepared base will make sure your makeup lasts long and lends an enchanting luminosity to your complexion so that you shine from within and in front of the camera…you know, without looking too sweaty or oily.

Even if you are into simple bridal makeup, the Lakmé Absolute Glow Primer is your backstage pass to a smooth, even-toned complexion. It also gives you a natural glow with luminescent pearls in its formula, speeding up the process for picture-perfect skin. And acting as a protective shield between your skin and the makeup, this primer not only prepares your skin but also provides a perfect base for your bridal makeup look.  

Bridal Base: Flawless Foundation and Concealer  

Choosing the right foundation shade is pivotal for that flawless Indian bridal makeup. Begin by identifying your undertone - cool (pinkish), warm (reddish) or neutral (a combination of both). Test a few shades on your jawline in natural light to find the closest match. Remember, the goal is to have your foundation disappear into your skin, creating a seamless canvas. If you're between shades, opt for the slightly lighter one as you can always add warmth with bronzer and contour.

Glittery Eye 

A glittery look gives a touch of sparkle to your eyes to create a dazzling effect, perfect for wedding bridal makeup. Glitter is strategically placed on the eyelids and the eyeliner is slightly more pronounced, providing a frame for the mesmerising eyeshadow.

The smokey look is the epitome of drama, allure and traditional bridal makeup.

FAQs about Unveiling Picture-Perfect Bridal Makeup    

Q1. How to make bridal makeup flash-proof? 

Achieving flash-proof Indian bridal makeup requires a strategic combination of matte products and proper lighting. Go for products that minimise shine and give a matte finish instead. Also, test your makeup under different lighting conditions to make sure that there is no flashback. And keep a blotting paper in handy for sweat. 

Q2. Which type of bridal makeup is best? 

The best type of bridal makeup is the one that resonates with your personal style, complements the wedding theme and makes you feel confident. Whether you opt for a traditional, modern, minimalistic or bold look, the key is to mirror your personality while harmonising with the overall atmosphere. 

Q3. How to avoid butthole lips when wearing dark lipstick? 

Achieving the best bridal makeup with even dark lipstick requires a combination of exfoliation, hydration and precision. Begin with exfoliating and moisturising your lips to create a smooth canvas. Then, outline your lips with a matching lip liner, gradually filling in the colour. This technique not only prevents uneven application but allows dark lipstick to stay all day.
