Spring is the time of fresh beauty, of new blossoms and new beginnings. The spring bride is that luckiest, since she has the weather doing everything it can to make her look more beautiful. However, to help spring along a little here are some makeup tips.
Make sure that you get regular facials for a couple of months before your wedding so that the harsh winds of winter don’t affect your skin. Always make sure you drink plenty of water and follow the Cleanse-Tone-Moisturize routine. Also, exfoliate at least once a week and use a black head removing face wash at least thrice a week.
When applying makeup for the Spring Bride, make sure you keep it light. For the Mehendi, just use a little moisturizer, a light concealer and a light foundation. It’s better if you mix the foundation with a bit of serum or moisturizer, so it doesn’t look cakey. Just put on a bit of kohl and an eye liner in a dark blue or green. Use mascara and finish up with some light lipstick and gloss.
For the main wedding, keep your make up to the basics. Try and use just a light moisturizer and concealer. You want to be able to wash your face when you take a break. So, use waterproof eye makeup. Use minimum lipstick and let your bindi or tika be the best adornment for your face.
The reception is when you get to go berserk with your makeup. Use a moisturizer, concealer and foundation. Do up your eyes with kohl, an eye liner to match your dress, eye shadow and mascara. Add a little blush to your cheeks to give them some color and use a good long lasting lipstick and gloss so you don’t have to keep dabbing at your lips.
Remember the spring bride is a fresh bride. So, try and stick to pastel shades of makeup during the day and allow your natural beauty to come through. During the reception, you can remind everyone of the summer yet to come, and take on the sultry shades of bronze.
Always remember to try on a brand of makeup a couple of weeks before your wedding to check for allergies. Also, make sure that if you are using a beautician, she knows which brands of makeup suit you and what don’t.
