Christian Bridal Makeup tip #1: It is very crucial to cleanse and moisturize before you wear that foundation. If you have an oily skin, use an oil-free moisturizer to prevent looking like a grease board. Give yourself twenty minutes for your skin to absorb the moisturizer before you apply that foundation on your face.

3. Your Colour Palette

This is not the time to experiment like Lady Gaga. Keep it simple and chic by choosing neutral and pastel shade colour palettes for your eyes, cheeks and lips.

Go for Spring make-up look — lilac eye shadow with a soft blush of rosy cheeks. And lilac lip gloss for dewy lips.

For a bolder look — minty green eye shadow across the lid, paired with a retro wing look and lots of mascara. A sun-kissed bronze on the hollow of the cheeks, and brown nude lipstick.

Warm earthy shades suit Indian skin tone the best. Create a chic contemporary interpretation of smoky eyes by mixing orange and brown eye shadows. For that sun-kissed glow, sweep a dash of orange bronzer on the hollow of your cheeks, and finish it off by wearing sheer orange lip gloss.

If your idea of the perfect Christian bridal makeup is going for the pastel pink look, remember, the pastel pink lips should be the focus. Slightly wash pastel pink across the eye lid, wear a thin line of liner and lots of mascara. Keep it simple by softly sweeping pastel pink blush on the apples of your cheeks. To make your lips stand out, dab a light layer of foundation on your lips, and then wear the pastel pink lipstick.

4. Picture Perfecting Your Make-Up

After spending hours to look that gorgeous, you just cannot resist posing in front of cameras and taking selfies. It’s fun! Why not? But don’t forget that cameras will blow you out in all the pictures. To make sure that your rosy cheeks look rosy in the pictures, and your pout looks dewy-licious, put on a little more make-up than you normally apply. The camera and flash lights will simply tone down the make-up. Oh! Let’s not forget how sweaty and hot it gets during the day.

5. Waterproof Make-Up Is The Key

It’s your happiest day! You have butterflies fluttering in your tummy. Your heart cannot stop humming. You are smiling from ear to ear. ”Congratulations!” is all you hear. Just then you look to your right, and see your mommy get all emotional. Tears trickling down her cheeks. Soft snobs heard faintly. Without even realizing you start crying. Oh no. You don’t want anything messy happening on your beautiful canvas-like face. Use waterproof lacquer for your make-up. Don’t forget to wear waterproof mascara, and use waterproof glue for your fake eyelashes. And you will be all sorted out.

If you aren’t getting married in winter, then you will be facing serious humid conditions. You MUST consider all oil-free products. And don’t forget to keep oil-free blotting sheets in hand. They will save you from making your nose sparkle like a solitaire in all the pictures.

7. Hiring A Professional

Unless you have been practising wearing make-up for weeks, or are a certified make-up artist, we suggest you hire a professional to make things easier for you. All you will have to do is put on your best smile, sit down on a chair, and let magic happen. With all those thoughts and quivering hands, you certainly don’t want to get all cranky when the eye-liner on both the eye lids is not symmetrical.

Now don’t you worry about anything else. It’s a big day. Put on your brightest smile, and just have fun!
